I was invited to be a Conference Speaker as part of a three-day online event organised by ITB Berlin and Berlin Travel Festival from 16 to 18 October 2020. I was to be a participant in a four-person panel of passionate travel experts who would share insights about how destinations and the travel world cope with and react to the pandemic. We were booked to discuss current tourist needs and behaviors and what travelers should consider when trip planning, as well as sharing insights on how we expect travel to change for the better in a post-pandemic world. (October 2020)
I was approached to take part in a documentary programme for the BBC (October 2020)
I was interviewed by the Brexit blog of the German newspaper Der Tagesspiegel under the article: Brexit abstimmung im newsblog unterhaus-debatte zu austrittsabkommen hat begonnen. They wanted a statement about what outcome I expected of Theresa May’s (the British Prime-Minister) voting of Brexit and the Brexit Deal in parliament, and a brief discussion on how British expats in Berlin are affected and what recommendations I could give on what other British expats should do regarding their status in the EU. My bit was under Berlin-Brexit Stories #2 on 15th January 2019 – 17:56 (January 2019)
A special broadcast that went out as a LIVE evening show of Queen Elizabeth’s visit to Berlin. I was invited to be on the rbb (the Berlin-Brandenburg TV station) evening TV show as a sub-presenter on a panel of British experts – Die Queen in Berlin. Update: The actual programme is no longer available online but for future media purposes, a copy is available on DVD!
I was asked to contribute to a radio interview on Inforadio – a local radio station in Berlin. It was a radio broadcast about three (3) different types of British expats living in Berlin, of which I was one. I was also the only woman invited to participate. The production was called Briten in Berlin or Brits in Berlin. It was a seven (7) minute broadcast
I’m featured as the Best Expat Blog 2017 – Germany! – “Victoria is The British Berliner, a girl from Manchester in a city with barely any Brits. Being fascinated with culture, she is an accomplished traveler, and works as an intercultural life coach. She has been featured in The Huffington Post, as well as many travel websites, and for good reason – her posts are funny, extensive, and cast a critical but positive eye on expat life. We chose her for her wit in describing the highs and lows of a traveler across the world” (October 2017)
I was on an academic discussion panel on Brexit at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin / Humboldt University, Berlin, and on a newspaper feature about Brexit! Marvellous news. And other stuff! (June 207)
I was interviewed by one of Europe’s largest online newspapers – The Local in Germany – in which I was interviewed about my life in Germany and how I came to make a documentary and feature on German TV – How I explained the Queen to the Germans!
I'm a British girl from Manchester living in Berlin with my German husband and my half British – half German son.
My blog is a lifestyle expat travel blog and puts a focus on my promotion of culture, history, travels around the world, Europe, Brexit, the Royal Family, British-German life and being British in Berlin - I am The British Berliner!
