Berlin series

Just published the newest series: Berlin

Like a Phoenix (still) rising from the ashes, it’s apparent its history but you can smell hope and prosperity in the air.

Berliners don’t want to forget their past: they want to make sure everyone sees the bomb blasts here and there. Rather, they use those memories to create a better present and future. People surprised me by being so connected and yet relaxed in a way I had never seen in a city with such dimensions — and believe me, Berlin is huge.

Went to Berlin without expectations, came back a different person. This city is so much more than I could ever imagine. I actually never thought I would miss a city so much. Can’t wait to go back.

I can truly say: Ich bin ein Berliner!
