Berlin, Germany Keeps Getting Better

berlin_from_victoria_park

Good day,

This will be brief as I have a flight to South Africa tomorrow but still want to share this. I’ve been in Berlin for what after tonight will be three nights; I just love this city.  I asked a friend from university who is one I passed Easter with which parts of Berlin I’d like most and she replied with the following Facebook message “Mitte, Kreuzberg, Friedrichshain”. Sure enough she was spot on and all the other friends I wanted to link with while here lived in the area or nearby.

I spent my time catching up on work; sleeping 12 hour nights and just loving the space that a private apartment rental afforded me. Yesterday I linked with a friend I met in Portugal during the most amazing “Euro trip of 2010” and tonight; I linked up with a friend I met / went on a road trip to Jose Ignacio with in Uruguay before again partying in Buenos Aires. Berlin has everything I need and it’s awful affordable for somewhere in what could be considered Western Europe.

Below are some photos of my time spent in the Kreuzberg area. I spent most of the time like a hermit crab in my apartment but did make a trek to Victoria Park and today had some social time on Bergmannstraße street. This is my third time in Berlin and most certainly not my last as it keeps getting better. After South Africa I’m going back home to the Caribbean to take care of some things before heading back to Europe because as I’ve said time and time again… From June 15th – September 15th there is no better place to be on this planet in my opinion.

See you in South Africa.

Tips hat,

P.S: Nothing but problems with Vodafone; if in Germany opt for any other SIM.

P.P.S: Props to business guy getting into subway; hooked me up with route to the airport.

    Berlin is high on our travel list – would love to rent an apartment there and stay a while! How long are you in S.A.? Where in the Caribbean are you going? I ask because we love South Africa and because we’re currently in the Caribbean, well, West Indies (Grenada)

    Happy Travels!

      Very cool and definitely recommend visiting South Africa; my second time and loving it once more. I’m going back to Little Corn Island, off the coast of Nicaragua aka my new home. Come visit sometime and enjoy Grenada.

    Hey Rob I enjoyed catching up with your travels the past month. We met on Little Corn. My son, Sam, and I were traveling together and we met you and got to check out your little piece of heaven. You have some great plans for it! We looked for you at Victoria’s to buy you a cheap beer but never ran into you! How long are you back on The Corns? can you email me? Got a couple questions for you. Thanks Barb

    Berlin was one of my favorite cities. I loved the history and the contrast between East and West Berlin.
