Berlin

Berlin was definitely a “cherry on top” to our summer 2016’s travel adventures. After a month in USA and a week in Copenhagen and Stockholm, we decided to travel some more. This was a very last-minute booked trip, just before the first semester of my Master’s programme started.

Why Berlin? – you ask me. Well ever since visiting it for the first time ( in december 2014) we wanted to go back, and second of all – because plane tickets were ridiculously cheap.

Seeing Berlin in Christmas time was something special, but a “septemberish” Berlin also had it’s charms. We were really unlucky when visiting the West side gallery. There was a construction going on – they were re-painting it and there were fences in front of the grafitti, so there was no point in taking many pictures. I was happy I had taken lots of pictures of the grafitti when we were visiting for the first time.

On the other hand we were lucky, because we got a chance to see the famous Berliner marathon. It’s really spectacular to see soo many runners at once from all over the World. We walked to the finish line, which was located by the “Brandenburger Tor”. The atmosphere by the finish line was amazing, very positive, so many people greeting the runners.

One of my absolute favourite days in Berlin was when we drove to the abandoned airport called “Tempelhofer feld”, which has now turned into a recreation park and urban gardening heaven. We relaxed, enjoyed the sun and had a picnic in the middle of those unique gardens.

Seeing Berlin in two different seasons only confirmed our conviction of how awesome this city is. And we will be definitely coming back again. Tomorrow we are off to another adventure – so stay tuned, there will be more travel – themed posts coming very soon.
