As most of you know, i visited berlin to attend the very first the hive blogging conference. No doubt there’s already 10’s of wonderful posts about the event for you to read online so i will instead recount some of my impressions of the weekend and introduce you to some of the wonderful bloggers i met.
First up, if you want a really comfortable, stylish and central hotel, look no further than to the exquisite and reasonably priced hotel amano in mitte. We stayed in two of their wonderful apartments and the roof terrace is to die for, helped by the weather being glorious and hitting 29 degrees by sunday. After a long day of sightseeing, shopping or attending a conference, this is the way to relax before dinner.
For glorious food, dudu is a must. Go for sashimi, maki rolls or the most popular crunchy dudu roll – an incredible combination of yellowfin tuna, avocado, cucumber and sesame covered crispy tempura, all accompanied by guacamole and salsa. The other favourite is their beef with lamb salad and their sushi rolls. We were lucky to sit outside on the patio and have dinner with the wonderful Toni and Thea from sister mag, clara from tastesheriff, susanne from lieschen heiratet and ricarda from 23qmstil.
The weekend was dominated by the blogging conference and i was delighted to hear some of the talks and meet these wonderful ladies. Oh, yes the boys from freunde von freunde did not disappoint.
