I Miss Berlin

In so many ways, Berlin was the perfect destination for us for our honeymoon. It was this great mix of learning something new, taking in the history and culture, and just walking around together. I couldn’t have asked for a better way to spend the first few days with my new husband than the way…

A Funny Thought I Had In Berlin

Checkpoint Charlie is one of those can’t miss sites when you visit Berlin. If you’re at least remotely interested in the history of this city or have the basic knowledge that it was split in two by a massive wall, you’ll want to see this location where one could cross from West Berlin to East…

All The Way At The Top

It was definitely a highlight for us to see one of Berlin’s iconic landmarks, the TV Tower (known as the Fersehturm) all the time from our hotel room. In fact, I’m quite a bit disappointed that I have now gone back to seeing a parking lot and the next building from my bedroom. The TV…

Love in Berlin

Paris has the¬†Pont des Arts,¬†famous for the locks that used to adorn its sides. Lovers from all over the world flock to lock in their love in one of the most romantic cities in the world. Berlin could be as furthest from a romantic city as possible, with its history more commonly associated with war…

Back at the German History Museum

When I first visited Berlin in 2012, the highlight of the trip for me was the German History Museum. I loved going through 2000 years of history over the course of three hours and just learning as much as I could about Germany and how much it’s been through and the progression it has made…

A Chance to Celebrate

I love being there at big moments, so I was delighted when I found out that we would be in Germany on the 25th anniversary of their reunification. Since the Germans do know how to party, I was greatly looking forward to joining in on the celebrations: you cannot deny how far this country has…

Lest We Forget

This is the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church in Berlin. As you can see, it’s a pretty striking structure, and not because of the new construction right next to it or that I happened to take this shot on a rather sunny Autumn day in the German capital. It is quite remarkable because this church was…

Getting to Know Berlin

There is just too much to see and do in the German capital- we couldn’t have picked a better place to spend our honeymoon than Berlin. Like any city or place, it has its own characteristics that sets it apart from anywhere else. We are slowly discovering these from spending our time getting to know…

Why Can’t We Be Like Berlin?

There is no better orientation to any city than walking its streets and trying to explore on your own what makes it what it is. This is why our first actual conscious day in the city of Berlin kicked off with such a tour. I can’t speak enough about how amazing this tour was. For…

A Year In Travelling- Part 1

In case you haven’t noticed, life goes by so fast. One day you’re planning every tiny detail for your first trip home and the next you find yourself engaged in a discussion with a world-renowned environmentalist about how it felt to experience altitude after several months in the Netherlands. It’s funny to think that these…
