I have arrived in the Capital of Germany. It’s not what I expected. It’s a bit dirty and there’s graffiti on nearly every surface they can reach. The public transport is less user friendly compared to Italy, Austria and the Czech republic. However, not to whinge all the time, the food is magnificent, and the people warm and accepting. They don’t seem to care that I look like a roving bag of horse dung – and I like that. There’s a tremendous sense of multiculturalism about the place, and again I like that a lot.
I’m staying with my friend Mine, who I met while travelling in Tokyo. She’s such a beautiful person I just want to say thank you now before I begin spamming you all with photos.
We went to see the Brandenburg Gate, the German Parliament building, visited the memorial to the murdered Jews, interrupted a food advertisement, ate currywurst on the street, went to multiple markets and parks, chilled by the river, and generally invaded every bit of space we could find. It was fantastic.
This was all on our first full day together. A decent 16km was covered!
On my first day we explored the local area together and ate ice cream (naughty).
You’ll have to excuse those photos my phone isn’t exactly known for it’s prolific photographic abilities. Neither am I come to that.
All in all it was a great first day and a half.
Part two will be about what we got up to in the afternoon and my final full day here in Berlin!
