Day 3 – Berlin – Continued 3 – (Sept 2017)

Day 3 (Part 3): It finally stopped raining here but by time it did, the marathon was over. Since I missed the tour of the city I decided to do my own sightseeing. I wanted to try to walk from West Berlin to East Berlin. I walked for an hour and 20 minutes and made it to Mitte which is in the center of the city (Mitte translates to Middle or Center).

After my walk I stopped at another Turkish Restaurant for some chicken and fries. Tomorrow I want to try to wake up early and get to the big tourist spots.

Day 3 – Berlin – Continued 1 (Sept 2017)

Day 3 (Continued): So my plans to go on the tour have been interrupted again because it’s raining and raining a lot…my tour is an outdoor walking tour. Also in Germany most stores are closed Sundays, so finding an umbrella is a challenge.

However, my walking in the neighborhood didn’t go wasted. There are a bunch of Turkish restaurants in my neighborhood and decided to give it a try for lunch.

My impression of the city is really good. As far as language, more than half the people I ran into spoke some English, some were very fluent a couple didn’t speak any. Even if they spoke little English, people were friendly enough to figure ways out to communicate. Everyone I’ve encountered has been relatively nice and you can tell it’s a chill city.

I’m going to figure out what to do today but the meantime going to watch Law and Order in German lol

Day 3 – Berlin (Sept 2017)

Day 3: Still in Berlin and last night was really good. Went to a club in East Berlin and the music was on point all night. The Germans really let loose and I danced all night. Ich weiß, mehr tanzen, mehr schmerz (Translation: I know, more dancing, more pain). My ankle can officially only take 5 hours of dancing and it was a wrap lol.

So today I will do more Touristy stuff…I have a tour of the city at 2 pm and the Berlin Marathon is going on as well. Should be fun…more pictures to come.

 

Day 2 – Continued 1 – Berlin (Sept 2017)

Day 2 (Continued): So I finally got out of bed and since I missed my tour, I decided to check out the local Oktoberfest. Its not as big as in Munich but its something. After Oktoberfest I decided to check out this local Ghanain restaurant and it was delicious. It was rice with a whole Tilapia along with some African beer. I was going to do more walking around the neighborhood but it started raining.

Today I used more of the German I know. I ordered Bratwurst in German (Ich möchte ein Bratwurst), when asking for directions (diesse Straße? This street?) and of course do you speak english (Du sprechst english?).

Im back at the AirBnb seeing which party Im going to tonight…

Day 2 – Berlin (Sept 2017)

Day 2: Last night was so surreal. I went to this club last night and they were playing amazing techno and house music. All age ranges were there. I met a dude in line to get inside and he gave me my “intro to Berlin nightlife”. He was from Brazil but introduced me to other Germans. I danced till 5 am and only stopped because of my ankle hurting lol.

Now Im trying to figure out what to do today…first step is to get out of bed…

Made it to Europe!

Day 1: I made it to Paris safely. I had to take a taxi to another airport in Paris so I can catch my flight to Berlin. Waiting to board in the next hour. Some pictures from the drive here. When I get to Berlin, I’m going to a party at a night club. Let see how long I can last before passing out.

Prague for my birthday? Sure why not

Besides going to Jamaica once early in my life, I had never left the United States…never the less taking a trip on my own. In April 2017 I decided to learn German and was looking for people who were fluent in German on an language exchange application. That’s when I met someone from Slovakia. She’s fluent in English, German, Slovak and Czech.
