I went to Berlin earlier this year and it was such an interesting place that I enjoyed immensely. First we started off with a trip to the Berlin Wall were we discussed current times and how little the world has progressed. Details of the Berlin Wall. The thing I loved most about Berlin was how many photography museums, galleries, and exhibitions there seemed to be. After being in Florence for so long it was so amazing to enter a city that embraced the contemporary aspects of
Views from the plane. Cute French Cafes for the win. Best breakfast I think I've ever enjoyed. So simple and it made me so so happy. Even the hostels in Paris are beautiful. My roommates.
