I'm s lucky, that I got to meet this beautiful young lady back in America.
While I was in America, I did spent a lot of time with my other exchange student friends. We all got a long very well and we were a big group of young people, sharing the same interests. One of the girls, I spent most of my time with, was Louise from Berlin, Germany.
I've always wanted to visit Berlin, but never really had a reason to just go down there. So I saw the perfect opportunity to explore Berlin, but also to see my dearest friend once again. I went to Berlin for simply 4 days, but it was some really great days.
I was so lucky to see so many beautiful parts of Berlin, try new great foods, visit cute and neat shops and bike all around town.
Louise and her family lives in a very cute neighborhood, just in the center of Berlin 🇩🇪
This cute dog was just laying on the sidewalk outside a store, waiting for its owner to come back. I love capturing moments like these.
If you aren't very familiar with German candy, you probably wouldn't know this. But Germany is very famous for their candy and chocolate. This brand, Katjes, is a German candy brand from 1950. They make gummies and licorice, AND the best thing is; it's all vegan. If you haven't tried it yet, go get yourself some!
Visiting Berlin, simply also means -> having several coffee stops at the cutest cafés. This café was called Café Cinema. The atmosphere was awesome, they played loud old-school music, the lightning was low and they had some very neat and rough wall art, as well as decorations.
After finishing up our cappuccinos, we went out through a tunnel and into this little garden. It was filled with graffiti, awesome paintings, sayings and wonderful photography opportunities.
Fun fact: We didn't know that this café actually is one of the oldest café in Berlin. The decorations inside haven't changed since the day they opened. I thought this was a col fact.
Like we had never been apart
When going to Berlin, you will have to stop by the Holocaust Memorial. It's a memorial place for all the Jews who got killed during WW2. I think it is a very important place and a huge part of Germany's history.
We also went to a fleamarket, there was a lot of different stands with clothing, accessories, furnitures and etc. Of course we also had to try one of all the foods. We ended up with this spinach and cheese wrap, it's a turkish food, and I'm telling you; it's reaaaaaally good.
I'm fascinated by street music and I could've been standing there all day long, just listening to him sing and see the people pass by.
If you're looking for a good restaurant when visiting Berlin. I'll definitely suggest Babel. It's a Lebanese restaurant and their food is so tasty and original.
I loved the atmosphere in there, the Lebanese music, the arabic culture and the food. I'm totally going back next time i hit Berlin!
And of course, visiting the wall: Berliner Mauer.
It was a very weird and surrealistic feeling to stand right next to the wall, knowing what happened years ago and how it is today.
Louise brought me to this entirely huge thrift store in Berlin. We spent over 2 hours in there and no doubt, we could've spent even more. They had so much different clothes, styles and figures. Definitely also a MUST to visit.
They also have this very good idea. So not all the clothes are included in this, but most of it are; so you just fill up a basket will the clothes you want and you pay for the weight. So ex. for each 100g, you'll pay 10€. I think it's a great idea.
I enjoyed my little trip to Berlin so much, and I can't wait to visit there again sometime. It's such a beautiful and great city. I've seen so many things in a short amount of time, and it just shows me that you can get far by traveling. I would highly recommend visiting Berlin. Whether it's in the fall or not, you'll get a good view on how neat and pretty Berlin is. There's room enough for everyone and you'll always be able to find the right place, just for you. Thanks for following along.
