I can’t believe it’s been so long since DS and I were in Germany and I got to show him another one of my ‘homes’. It’s been nice going through photos of when we were there (especially all the places we ate at) and today I’m here to write about Hoog, a new restaurant in Keitum, Sylt (an island off the coast of Germany in the North Sea) in the new up-market resort Severin*s.

So you’ve all been reading about DS…now you actually get to hear from the guy himself! Introducing DS in his first guest post after featuring on the blog for 2+ years…

When I heard we were going to Kujin for dinner, I was thrilled!
