WKND in BERLIN
Although there was no time for shopping, the possibilities seemed perfect and we went by many cool stores with amazing things. All high end brands has fine stores and really fun restaurants and clubs.
When we arrived the summer stood by the door and it looked so bushy and pretty.
I know the under ground world after midnight is crazy and we actually went to a members club on Saturday night I found out through one guy at The Soho House, where you are driven to an area most people would be scared being dropped at, something that looked like a alley for drugs and throwing trash. But behind a door which looked even worse then you could ever imagine, hidden (and completely impossible to find out and understand that anything of sophistication was behind) was this amazing high end club where they said all celebrities and famous people hang. My girlfriend almost refused to get out of the taxi, but clubbing in BC I know that some of the really thrilling places are just hiding behind something that would never make sense. Anyhow it was fun and always gives vibrate memories for life but being up at 7am for the whole purpose of the trip, one of a lifetime Medical Anatomy course, only allowed and held in Berlin and that lasted almost the whole day, we only had energy for midnight and left before all the most crazy of fun began.
I can't wait to get back here when the boys are older so we can teach them everything about what happened during the world wars and also when the wall came and later fell. It's an incredible amount of history one need to be very familiar with, especially since the wall existed until 1989, which seems just around the corner.
Another fun thing is the museums and exhibitions this city normally hosts, the same New York shows often arrives here and I would have loved to visit the Mario Testino show - but work and dinners was prioritised on this trip.
Thank you Berlin! Was a pleasure feeling your vibes for a wknd!
