I was born in Barcelona and have lived in the UK for many years now. I'm a writer, translator (English-Spanish and vice-versa) and I'm a medical doctor and worked in Forensic Psychiatry many years. I also have a BA and a PhD in American Literature and Film, and a Masters in Criminology. I've always loved books and apart from writing them I review them often. I write a bit of everything, check my books for more information and my about page for links. My blog is bilingual, English and Spanish.

  1. What a wonderful concept for a travel book. Marvelous review, Olga! Have a great new week. Huge hugs

    1. Thanks, Teagan. It will be a special one. Have a lovely week too.

  2. When I visited Berlin, it was still in the DDR, and divided by the wall. I was holidaying in East Germany, and went through ‘the other way’. It was a fascinating place, and is no doubt much easier to explore these days. It would be interesting to still be able to see some of Isherwood’s Berlin, from between the wars, though I suspect much of that was destroyed.
    This looks like an unusual travel guide indeed.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Thanks, Pete. I will check your post. It must have been an interesting experience (I briefly visited Txecoslovakia when it was still one country and it was an interesting experience too). This is a series of these guides and I hope I’ll have a chance to review some future ones (they all sound very interesting) and also, perhaps to live through the guides during a visit. I think it’s the perfect present for travellers who love books (and vice versa). I hope you have a lovely and positive week, Pete.

    1. When they send me information about the whole series I knew I was in trouble. A must for readers and travellers alike. Have a lovely week, Sarah.

  3. a birthday present for my husband! Thank you.

    1. I hope he enjoys it. The whole series sounds great!

    2. And happy birthday to your husband, Hilary!

    Berlin is always worth a trip Olga! Go soon, you won’t regret it. So much history in one place, the best and worst of humanity.

    1. Thanks, Hans. And you’re right. A place of contrasts, like life itself. Your new book is next on my list (I just need to finish reading the book I’m with now). Looking forward to it.

  5. I love to travel, although, it has been a while. Berlin happens to be on my bucket list. I love to read about the historical facts of a country or city and I also love architecture, so this book seems like a must read for me. Thank you!

    1. Thanks, Vashti. It’s also on my list and luckily not that far away. I need to get organised and that’s proven a bit difficult at the moment. I hope you enjoy the book and the trip.
