InterRail 2010 – Part 2: Exploring Berlin

After my unsavory experiences in Hamburg, I was very happy to finally start doing some real touristy stuff in Berlin.

Not a lot interesting happened to me in Berlin. I just had a nice day, walking around, taking pictures. Then I moved on to Amsterdam.

A lot of places in Berlin had this very interesting mix of old majestic architecture and new degradation.

It was also interesting to see regretful war memorials for World War 2. Most war memorials I have seen other places, were put there by the victorious forces.

All in all, I very much enjoyed my day in this lovely city.

 

In the next part; Köln!

I had just finished a year in the military, stationed quite a ways way outside of a city in the northern parts of Norway. It was cold, boring and mostly lonely.

I started in my hometown of Bergen, Norway.

From there I travelled via Sweden and Denmark, down to Hamburg in Germany, where I stayed for the first night.

I only ever saw Hamburg in the dark, as I arrived quite late and left very early, but

the area around the train-station is one of the seedier places I have seen in my life
