Berlin was on of the place I thought I wouldn’t visit anytime soon.
Not for any particular reason, it just wasn’t on my priority list. I’ve heard a lot of good things, but for some weird reason, I wasn’t having the kind of “TING” that would make me think and re-think about the place continuously until I went there.
Oh yes, I was.
I’ve been there 20 hours, even less if we consider the time spent on the transportation, on passport control etc. But on a first look, Berlin really looks like every European Capital should be: organized, liveable and with a nice architectural/cultural environment all around you. Plus, enjoying the great company of my partner-in-crime Daria.
The city itself was very nice, and walking a lot was the natural consequence. Arriving at night made it possible to see the streets and the area around the center under a different light:
The 24 hours transport system during the weekends allowed us to travel from our hotel destination to a good place where to start walking and wander:
But…. Walking make you hungry. Like SERIOUSLY. And yes, food blogging never was my call, but having this dish in front of us at 3,30 AM was just perfection:
After 3 – literally – hours of sleep, it was time to start a very short new day. Which was not failing on giving us something good to see again:
To conclude, this was definitely a great surprise, and even thou it was an extremely short time to see and “feel” a city, Berlin was a place I felt quite comfortable and open.
Nice to keep in mind for future plans! 🙂
