Weekender || Berlin & Prague Part III: Street Art

with one comment

On a really rainy morning, I decided I was going to do something that would really give me a feel of what Berlin was really about.  Graffiti hunting.  Here’s what I found that was mildly to extremely interesting.  Gives you an idea of how grimy and progressive this city is (all in a good way).

I literally turned a corner to see this. Amazing giant graffiti by the artist Blu.

Weekender || Berlin & Prague Part II: Berlin

with one comment

Berlin hit me with a bunch of what I like to call “shock bullets”. Whether it was buildings, sights, graffiti, history, clubs, bars, people, food, I was left stunned by shock bullets whizzing by every hour or so.

You never know who you meet at various parts of the world who all of a sudden feel like old friends. It’s the beauty of traveling, like watching the water trickle down the window during a storm, and tons of them start merging together at who knows when. It was a rush, and a good time.

These pictures do Berlin no justice. I’ve been to 7 countries in the past 4 months, many of them bringing me the entire range of emotions, but none of them spoke the way Berlin did, which I found to be the most unique. Enjoy.

Flight to Berlin.

Weekender || Berlin & Prague Part I: Packing

leave a comment »

Well I’m off for a week!  This is my final major trip before I come home.  As you guys have seen through my travels on my blog, I hit up southern Europe early this fall pretty solidly.  I’ve even returned to Spain a few weeks ago.  Eastern Europe and Germany, I haven’t even dreamed of going during this trip.  Thank God for cheap airline flights.  I’ll be going to Berlin tomorrow morning with all those in tow.  Then I’ll be in Prague on Friday.  No computer, just iPhone and some notes to study, and 3-4 days of clothing for a 7 day trip.  Fit it all into a little backpack, and I’m good to go.  That’s one thing I’ve learned on this trip, pack lightly, and you’ll do fine.  See you guys in a week (surprise post sometime this week as well!).
