What to do at home while Coronavirus quarantine

We are living turbulent times, but every crisis is an opportunity. Maybe the Covid19 would help the worldwide governments to realize that if they take extraordinary measures, changes can be made, and that can be applied to climate change. We doubt that, but dreaming is free. It’s also time to value the incredible effort all the healthcare professionals are doing in every country, as well as the professionals working in supermarkets and pharmacies. They are our heroes. Especially taking into consideration how people are turning crazy and buying all the…

Nightlife: Zur Gruam

Nightlife: Zur Gruam

Most of the people would say Munich is a posh city, and it’s true. But like every city in the world, it has its hidden treasures, its underground places out of the typical circuits.

Zur Gruam is a small bar located near the Alte Utting that opens until late (in Google Maps said it’s open…

For example, Gurr, who was the first German band we saw in concert in the city, or other amazing bands like Paar, San Antonio Kid, Fenster or International Music, just to name a few. We have created a list with…
