4 days in Berlin, Germany (video)

You guys – have you ever been to Berlin? If not, you should defo check it out! It’ a bit of an odd city… in that there isn’t a huge amount of landmarks or specific stuff to actually do (especially compared to other European capitals like Paris, Rome, London etc).

The Crafty Gentleman promo video

No, we’re not making some low-budget movie (although that would be cool)… they were there to record a video feature on me and The Crafty Gentleman! Pretty exciting, right?! The team were from my domain provider, Heart Internet (i.e. the guys who do all the techie stuff that makes my blog possible). They liked what I was doing with their services, so asked if they…
