A Scottish element is sprinkled to The Berlin Spectator with me, Lesley Haw. Berlin is my second city after living there for many years. I've worked in BBC broadcast journalism/radio production across Scotland, plus copywriting and copy editing for many European companies and green economy startups. Away from the laptop, I love cycling, tennis, animals, diverse music, films and true crime. I also love big cities, lovely landscapes, waterparks and the seaside.
Perhaps you've already heard about capsule hostels across Japan. But one gravitated west, to Berlin, last year. Our writer Lesley Haw stayed at Space Night Hostel and describes her dark and light tinged experience.
