the mundane & the unexpected

 
 
 

Well, perhaps it’s not unexpected for a Trabant to break down, but...


All trips are filled with the things you didn’t plan for...the surprises as well as the small details that were taken for granted and ignored.  This section of the website tries to fill in those gaps.


Last summer we spent a full week scouring the city for curtain rings.  It was astonishing.  We went into hardware stores, fabric shops, housewares shops, curtain stores.  No one had them.  Finally we found a wide selection at Obi, a logical place to look but out of the way.  Not a very common tourist need, admittedly, but the next day we met some friends of a friend, visiting from Australia, and they happened to mention that they were looking for curtain rings ... go figure.


So this part of the website offers the fruits of our frustrations in the hope that it will make at least some of yours less annoying.
