7 Years a blogger!


This post is to celebrate my blog's 7th birthday. I have to say time flies!
I still clearly remember When & Why i started blogging and I have to tell you, I still enjoy blogging!
Here are seven things I've learned from seven years of blogging:

  • You don't have to do everything other bloggers are doing.
  • You don't have to blog on a daily basis to be successful.
  • My blog is home, I can do and say what I want.
  • My blog have inspired many bloggers and journalists.
  • Through my blog I have found a new job.
  • I am true to who I am.
  • Blogging has enriched my life.
Also, I thought I'd pick my Seven top posts from the blog's existence. these are ones that I recall without trying.

Shakira tagged with the #Lebanese flag!


For closing ceremony during the 2014 World Cup final match between Germany and Argentina the lebanese designer Charbel Zoe custom made Shakira's outfit, well this is not that unusual, Lebanese designers always dress the stars! what interested me is that he tagged the dress with the lebanese flag!
@charbelzoecouture

Some lebanese nag about the situation in lebanon, others succeed outside and are proud to be lebanese!

Looks Like Beirut.

A lot of lebanese living in lebanon or abroad always write bad things about Lebanon on the internet while foreigners who live here only write up the good stuff; weird right?

I personally think that Beirut is the best city in the MENA region, unfortunately the influence of politicians and the impact of our criminal neighbors have given us negative image.
Don’t be fooled by the negative press,  don’t listen to what anyone says. Every country has its downsides, take travel advice and suggestions for just what they are: suggestions.
Go places with a clear head and make your own decisions about them.  If I listened to negative opinions, I wouldn’t travel!

When people say Beirut isn't awesome, don't listen.

Lost In Berlin

I am a sucker for a European city break, I have always wanted to go to Berlin and this was the right opportunity. German people are super-nice, friendly and helpful.
5 days weren't enough to explore the rich history and culture Berlin has to offer...


Here is my best to do list if you are planning to visit Berlin:
 
1- Spend a day at the Museum Island:

 An island in the Spree river in the central Mitte  district of Berlin, it is so called for the complex of five internationally significant museums. Get a full day ticket for 18 Euros and you will have access to all the museums in this island.
 
2-You can’t visit Germany without tasting its Currywurst, you can have your dose from the street for only 1,80 euros! Oh yes Berlin isn’t an expensive city compared to other West European cities

3- Walk the Berlin wall

4- Discover Berlin’s old history by visiting Potsdam and the Neues Palais

5- Also in Potsdam, the Sans Souci park and the breathtaking Sans Souci palace: Sanssouci is a French word meaning “without worries.” As you visit the beautiful gardens and discover  the impressive architecture of Sanssouci Palace you are certain to leave your own worries behind as well.

6- Walking the Unter den linden street to reach Brandenburg gate..Without a doubt, the Brandenburg Gate is Berlin's signature attraction

7- Enjoy a wonderful view of Berlin and discover the City from Kollhoff building’s roof top



8- Relax at the Tiergarten: Heaven in the center of berlin, a great place to spend a couple of hours.

9-  Chocolate lovers: don’t miss Fassbender & Rausch chocolatier and Riter Sport shop


10- German Museum of Technology : The museum presents a broad spectrum of old and new technology.


11- Checkpoint Charlie: This was the crossing point between east and West Berlin back in the cold war

Berlin: you got me smitten! I will be back!
