    Berlin

    August 9 in Germany

    Me and Jojo went to Berlin a couple of days, and that's when I fell in love with Germany. I have no words to explain what the city was to me, but i was AMAZING.
    We saw the Dome, the Museum Island, the Fernsehturm, the government palace, but of everything, the thing I loved the most was walking down the street of the city... it's so green and clean and full of people of every kind. Love it!

    Berlin Day Two

    July 14, 2017 in Germany

    Berliner Mauer und geteilte Stadt / The Berlin Wall and the divided city.
    The theme for our second day was the Berlin Wall. We started the day at the Berlin Wall Memorial (Gedenkstätte Berliner Mauer), then went to the GDR Museum (DDR Museum). Afterwards we walked along the East Side Gallery which is the longest surviving stretch of the Berlin Wall. Then, we visited Checkpoint Charlie.
    We also went to the Bundeskanzleramt aka Merkel’s Party House.
    Berlin's history is so interesting!

    Berlin the Wall tour

    July 25, 2017 in Germany

    Snapshot
    Where - Berlin
    Weather - fine and sunny, 24° C
    Steps - 16,450 or 10.4km

    Our first day in Berlin we picked up a 2 day pass for the Hop on hop off bus. Today we chose the tour that deals with the Berlin Wall. It is hard to imagine that this city was divided into East and West and people were still being shot if they tried to escape from the East not even 30 years ago. Thankfully the wall came down in 1989/90 but the reminders are still there. Of course it now becomes a major tourist attraction for the city.

    We also visited the Memorial to the Wall which showed remnants of the wall plus the death zone. Quite sobering.

    The city itself has some beautiful architecture, but everywhere you look there is construction going on. It would be hard to imagine what it would look like with all the scaffolding gone and the streets opened up etc. There are still remnants of buildings that were bombed during World War II in amongst the modern structures.

    It was a long day, plenty of walking, and I dare say the same again tomorrow.

    Berlin- the Traditional tour

    July 25, 2017 in Germany

    Snapshot
    Where- Berlin
    Weather - wet then overcast 18°C
    Steps - 16500 or 10.5km

    Bit of a wet start to the day but only as we were catching the bus into the city. Today was the traditional tour on the HOHO bus checking out the main sights such as The Brandenburg Gate, the Reichstag, Siegessäule (victory column), plus a couple of war time / cold war sights like Checkoint Charlie and the Memorial for the Jewish Holocaust.

    The Reichstag was bombed and almost totally destroyed in the war but you wouldn't know it today. I couldn't work out why the victory column had some pieces missing from the relief work like a head or leg removed from a soldier but then we saw the bullet holes in the marble and in the reliefs and realised that is why they were removed.

    Checkpoint Charlie was the place where people could pass from the west to the east. You could get your passport stamped but of course there is a cost associated with that. (In Europe there is a cost associated with everything - even costs you 50 € cents to use the toilet)

    The Memorial to the Jewish Holocaust was rather unusual with 2711 concrete columns of various heights arranged in narrow alleyways. Not sure how this was meant to represent murdered Jews because we didn't go into the museum to find out, but it looked interesting anyway.

    This ends our trip to Berlin - probably one more day we could have looked at another few things but I think we hit the main points. Off to Copenhagen tomorrow.

    Thursday

    August 18, 2016 in Germany

    *TESSA* On Thursday we turned our back on museums and tried to give our bodies a rest from the 30,000 steps we've been averaging daily. We Ubahned every chance we got, starting with 1 stop plus a 500m bus ride to visit the Berliner Dom, a cathedral that made me feel 100% more religious, it was so gorgeous (so I'm up to 0.02% religious) followed by eine currywurst mit pommes fritz und mayonnaise mid-morning. We ate icecream at KaDaWe, walked and caught an u banh in the west for the sake of it and wandered the tiergarten until we slumped, at just over 10,000 steps, to bretzel und bier... funf bier...
    We dined with an old and new friend at their gorgeous Berlin apartment, talking philosophy, history, politics, tourism and cats.
    A perfect day.

    Берлин, Германия

    August 18, 2017 in Germany

    Было самое время переезжать в город,где я собиралась провести больше всего времени-Берлин. Прошла как будто целая вечность с момента моего отъезда из дома,эмоции переполняют,а бессонные ночи все копятся и копятся. И вот я наконец-то здесь. Я никогда не мечтала увидеть Берлин ( как и Париж),но один человек заставил меня полюбить город с расстояния,желание посетить его было нереальным. В это время мне стало попадаться огромное количество людей,которые любят Берлин,путешествуют или живут в нем,ведут блоги о нем и т.д. Все это вело меня к этому самому моменту.
    Наш день начался поздно,но был очень плодотворным. Мне удалось поймать частичку атмосферы Берлина- спасибо моему удивительному другу Филиппу. К счастью,впереди еще 4 полных дня в Берлине,и я собираюсь гулять и гулять,много и долго.

    Reichstag, Berlin

    August 23, 2017 in Germany

    Последней частью моей культурной программы было посещение здания Рейхстага. Несмотря на то,что последнее время я не любитель очень традиционных достопримечательностей, усовершенствованное здание мне понравилось. И это был наверно мой первый вид сверху на Берлин.

    First day of the rest of your life

    August 23, 2017 in Germany

    If you had ever told me that you wanna be with me I would've found a way to reach you. Последний вечер в Берлине был насыщенным,но грустным для меня. Мне безумно не хотелось покидать этот город. Он не идеальный,он разный,ты можешь встретить совершенно непохожих на друг друга людей,и все здесь живет в гармонии. Спасибо всем,кто сделал мое пребывание в Берлине таким чудесным. Это было незабываемо и до слез. Я уже скучаю по тебе,Берлин.Read more

    Ungefähr zeitgleich...

    October 15, 2016 in Germany

    ...trifft Matze in seinem Flieger überraschend alte Freunde, die direkt auf den Sitzplätzen neben ihm den Flug nach Abu Dhabi antreten. Die Hälfte der Familie hätte übrigens ohne Matzes Hilfe den Weiterflug nach Bangkok verpasst!
