Typically I find other travelers that interest me but Leah was different, she found me. She is someone who was like myself that stumbled into solo traveling and has grown from her experiences of going to multiple continents, meeting new people and experiencing different cultures. I’m proud to have Leah part of the Know Thy Traveler series.Read More
Every time I go to Europe, I always find my way back to Berlin. I remember when I made my travel plans to see London, Paris, Amsterdam and Berlin, I thought Berlin would be my least favorite of all the cities. Turns out, it’s my favorite city till this day. I feel very comfortable being there and I’ve learned a lot about this wonderful city.Read More
Tomorrow I fly out of Newark Airport for my 16 night Euro Trip. I’m going to 4 countries and 6 cities (Berlin, Budapest, Lisbon, Porto, Barcelona and Madrid). I decided to share what I have packed for this trip.
I had the opportunity to go to Munich as part of my 9 night Germany trip. Munich was my second stop and I knew only a few things about Munich from other Germans and travelers who have been there. Needless to say, I was wide open to what I may run into and what to visit while in Munich.
You ever have that feeling of deja vu? I swear I have it every time I tell a friend that I’m going to Berlin and their response is inevitably “Again?”…yes AGAIN. I never have a chance to really explain in detail why I love Berlin and why I keep going back to this wonderful city. First let me state that I’m biased to Germany in general. I took an interest in the German language which led for me to meet native German speakers and to eventually go to Germany. Even with me being biased, I still have great reasons why Berlin should be somewhere on your shortlist if you’re planning to go to Europe.
Day 9 – Last full day in Germany and I really enjoyed myself. Today I walked through the tourist area and took a panaramic picture of the Brandenburg Gate as well.
Afterwards I went back to Kreuzberg and had some Austrian Wiener Schnitzel as recommended by a friend. It was my first and it was very good.
Resting for now. Might go out tonight, we shall see. Enjoy the pictures.
Day 8 – Best decision I made was to come back to Berlin for the last couple of nights.
So it’s official, Berlin is my favorite European City. So multicultural, it’s a young, vibrant and interesting city. I’ve never had anything bad to eat in this city either lol.
With me losing my euro cellphone, I decided to buy another one. Found a cheap one but it has new features like panaramic picture taking.
Day 7 – I made it to Hamburg but Im honestly not feeling it here. The harbor is nice and the downtown area is nice. Reeperbahn which is where they have legalized Prostitution is super sketchy. Homeless all over the streets, druggy and drunks walking around and this was the day time.
Also I lost my cheap euro cell phone…
I decided I’m going back to Berlin to finish my last 2 nights. Berlin is always fun and interesting.
