Germany wears its riches well: elegant big-city charm, small picture-postcard towns, pagan-inspired harvest festivals, a wealth of art and culture and the perennial pleasures of huge tracts of forest, delightful castles and fine wine and beer are all there for the savouring. Deep in the heart of Europe, Germany has had a seminal impact on Continental history. From Charlemagne and the Holy Roman Empire to Otto von Bismarck's German Reich, Nazism and the rise and fall of the Berlin Wall, no other nation has moulded Europe the way Germany has - for better or worse.

I went to some museums today. There is a small island in the rivers of Berlin called Museum Island because it is full of museums (easy to guess). The main one I went to see was the Pergamon Museum. It is set to close for over 5 years starting the end ... Read more >

I woke up and caught a S-bahn to the train station this morning.  My ICE train to bring me from Hamburg to Berlin was running a little behind, but it was not much of a problem. To be more precise, only half of the train was late. Since it is a more ... Read more >

Fri, 12 Sep 2014 | By schmodude | Views [11]

Today I explored the city. I think I walked almost a complete circle around downtown Hamburg. I started near the harbor and worked my way towards the city. There is a retired submarine in the Hamburg harbor that is now a historical museum piece. I only ... Read more >

I had breakfast at the hostel with the German guys from my room. Then I went around town and found a Vodafone store to buy a new SIM card (3 charges a lot in Germany). The guys at the store were helpful. The only thing that was a little confusing was ... Read more >

I bummed around in the hostel for a lot of the morning. My flight was in the afternoon and checkout of the hostel was 10:00am. I did not have quite enough time to explore the city anymore. I finished one of my books and then took the bullet train to ... Read more >

The first morning after 3 rest days wasn´t the easiest - I knew I was paying for the later nights and drinking more than the 'one or two' I had planned in Berlin (I had a great time staying with my cousin Carolyn and seeing Berlin). By the ... Read more >

Crying for the "Bad Guy"

Tue, 19 Aug 2014 | By rmckinley | Views [349]

My tour guide made me cry today. Not an uncontrollable sob, like when I said goodbye to my fiancé at the airport for four more months apart, but a heart-wrenching painful stream of tears that I could not fight back. I was thankful for sunglasses ... Read more >

Peeling Back The Layers

Sun, 17 Aug 2014 | By jazzanomadica | Views [154] | Comments [1]
