(East Side Gallery)
It was a city that I’ve been wanting to get to for some time now, and when the opportunity came and cheap flights were found, I decided to make it happen.
I was only there for 3 days (due to canceled flight and a day spent in Iceland) so it was a bit of a world wind. It’s a city so jam-packed with history, that 3 days didn’t even scratch the surface. And yet, in the mix of history is a modern and unique culture. I can only explain it as “cool”. The people dress in a style of their own, there were vintage shops galore in which people pieced together outfits in a way that made you know they’d been doing it for years. It’s not your typical romantic European city but it’s a city of strength, and it’s felt everywhere from its architecture, it’s people and even its’ nightlife which is so ingrained within this city.
