Hallo Berlin

Just a stones throw away from the Nordicland is a place called Berlin, in the country of Germany—a part of Real Europe*–and totally new location for me to explore.

Fresh in off the hot streets, this apartment we are staying in for the next 3 nights has so far, with accordian music from below and a refreshing breeze dancing in from the balcony, made a good impression on me.

*Real Europe: Though I’ve traveled to Europe on 4 separate occasions, I have all together (unintentionally) avoided visiting anywhere outside of Sweden, Finland, Norway, and Denmark, up until this point. It’s been sort of an elusive target.
