It usually takes me a while to get back into the swing of things after returning from a trip. And ages to unpack. I emptied my suitcase, but dumped most of the stuff into another bag and that remains unpacked. Somehow getting everything unpacked just reinforces the fact that vacation time is over. So might as well put that off as long as possible. At least that's what I'm telling myself.
I did manage to get some of my film developed though. I think I still have two other rolls and some pictures on my phone as well. The ones above include a trip to Tempelhof, a tour group of Trabis, a view of the Landwehr Canal from the Charlottenburg bridge, and days of wandering around Mitte and Museumsinsel. I'm already ready to get back on a plane just looking at these.

Grüße aus Berlin

  • After a terrible flight experience (curse you, United!), I'm in Berlin and staying very close to where I grew up, which is slightly strange. Some things have changed quite a lot, but it's also quite surprising that some shops and restaurants have stayed the same after nearly 20 years.
  • I've had Pommes to eat nearly every day (they are my favourite food, after all). One place didn't have mayonnaise for them, which is absolute madness. They tried to offer ketchup instead. Again: madness! 
  • I went to the market at Winterfeldtplatz today and got Pommes mit Mayo and these Polish shoes.
