I'm Cheryl Howard, a longtime traveller who likes weird stuff.

A Canadian from Toronto who’s been living in Berlin for the better part of a decade, I like travelling around Europe and discovering the most offbeat and quirky attractions I can find.

I write about unusual places and things and share unique itineraries for various destinations be it a food guide, pointers on where to sleep, what to do, and more.
