My name is Anouk. I grew up bilingual, and bicultural. I lived in LA most of my childhood, then moved to Hamburg, Germany. I love to run, ski, bake, cook, play piano, and travel. My favorite destinations are big cities where I can find cool cafés and try new, different food. But I also love nature – mountains, beaches, lakes, forests . . . well nature.
What this Blog is About
Ookie Dough is a blog about my favorite places to eat and shop in the world – mostly in my hometown Hamburg though. I love sharing my discoveries and opinions with other people and want everybody to have the chance to do so!
Origin of Blog Name – Ookie Dough
When I was a toddler my great aunt nicknamed me Uki. Since then I’ve had multiple similar nicknames spelled in various different ways. But the first time I had to spell Uki myself, I wrote it the way it was pronounced. So: oo-k-ie. ‘Cause I bake so much and cookie dough is delicious (especially in ice cream, or before baking cookies) I thought Ookie Dough fit 🙂 But Ookie Dough also could mean “My Stuff” which in a way is what this blog is about.
Below are some of my personal posts about Ookie Dough’s goals and how her brain works on this complicated globe:
