I pack my bags and take with me...

That suitcase is sooo big and still I want to take waaay too much {{|└(>o< )┘|}}
I packed it for my way back to Berlin, so it's not for the big journey yet.

I wonder if I'll manage to decide what to take and what not... It's so difficult to decide what to bring for such a long time!

Best Bubble Tea in Berlin: Gomax

I tried my first bubble tea back in spring 2010, soon after the first shop opened in Berlin. Back then the shop was always pretty empty and the only customers were 'cool asian kids' haha  (*≧▽≦)
I really liked bubble tea and my ninja and me used to go there from time to time. However, it finally got hyped and the shop was crowded with children everyday. Many many other shops opened and it became the most popular drink in Germany. 

Strange to say I had the feeling that in the course of time bubble tea became sweeter. Maybe most of the shops changed their syrup or just put more inside idk... I couldn't drink that bubble tea anymore, because I like refreshing, not-too-sweet ones the most (my favourite has always been yoghurt lemon   (☆^O^☆)). Sooo I tried a lot of shops in Berlin and North Rhine-Westphalia and I finally found my favourite shop: Gomax.

I think this shop is special and deserves much more attention than it receives right now!
The nice owner told me that most of the brands' stores are located in China and the only one in Germany is in Berlin right now, but that might change in future.

Their cute website is unfortunately only in Chinese right now, but they do have a facebook-site for their German shop.

So, why is it better than others?

1. many different types of drinks
They don't only have 'normal' bubble tea, they also have coffee and cocoa drinks (tiramisu and much more), matcha drinks (matcha latte *___*) and a lot of 'special' bubble tea (lime green tea, yakult green tea... yumyumyum).

2. price
Their 'normal' bubble tea (which is also very delicious) only costs 2,90€ and right now they even have summer holiday discount: 2,20€! And their special drinks still cost less than a 'normal' drink from another shop (from 3,00€ to 3,50€).
You get 10% off as a DKB-member.
And if you get a point-collecting-card, every 10th is free! d=(´▽`)=b

3. friendliness
They are always calm and friendly, even when the store is crowded!

4. tapioka
They have by faaar the best tapioka I ever had (and I order tapioka in 95% of all cases). They are never too hard, never too soft... just right (☆^ー^☆) I am obsessed with tapioka, so I know what I'm talking about lol

5. style
The interior is just cute! Btw they have pictures and explanantions of all their drinks, so deciding is easier too.

Also, they offer sushi, but I never tried it, so I can't say anything about that. but I heard that many people like going there in their lunch break eating sushi and drinking refreshing bubble tea.

You can find most of their offer here.


I was always very satisfied, whatever drink I ordered. Always so yummy!!
My ninja got addicted too and goes there way to often lol

24 days

My last exam is over... wow.
Now I can start thinking about my journey. It feels strange, of course I've never been away from home for such a long time before.

I will return to Berlin in 2 days,
arrive in Tokyo in 24 days,
and in 37 days I will finally travel to Taiwan

...where I will be staying for over 390 days.

On one hand I'm trying to concentrate and to focus on preparations, but on the other hand I'm simmering with excitment. To be honest I'm kind of sleepless recently.

It was pretty hard to focus on exams, because the weather was just... ridiculous.


I wonder how I'll feel about Japan, when returning after 3 years! I was always so sure, that I would come back in 2010 or 2011. Well, it took a little longer. I don't think Japan will have changed much, but after all I changed a lot

Kyoto 2009

Btw there will be much more posts from now on, so be prepared!
Tomorrow my ninja will come to my city and we will start packing my bags, so I can go home as soon as possible 。◕‿◕。 
But I'm also thinking a lot about leaving my dear friends, I'll miss them so much o(;△;)o

I'll end the post with a picture of me, just because I haven't really posted one until now (/ω\)
