As some of you may not have known, for the past 7 weeks I have been backpacking through Europe. Meeting new friends, seeing new places and learning about the vast history Europe has in store. Even from the smallest of towns, the biggest dreams can be made. With a little bit of effort, they can also be achieved.
Berlin, a City divided in two.
A rich and vibrant city, full of diversity and history has brought me in to experience it all. My first stop, the Berlin wall. The wall still stands in many places throughout the city, with a little bit of looking you can also discover chunks of it in the non touristy areas. The memorial and tourist site however brilliantly lays out how the wall once stood and all the layers of security it had. Or the secrets like the escape tunnels running under the walls, which aided some to rescue, to jail or their death. Among my journey in Berlin I was also able to visit the Reichstag building, Berlin Victory column, Brandenburg gate, aswell as the many hidden treasures within the Tiergarten. As I type this out I am enjoying Berlins most favorite street food, Currywurst & pomme frites: a bratwurst smothered in a ketchup curry sauce! Yum!
