Berlin. Where to begin.
My first full day here and official start to the program was another long one – but this time in the best way. It began with City Travel Review (CTR) orientation, ended with a very thorough encounter of Berlin public transportation, and included an informative historic walking tour midday to boot. Full-fledged initiation from start to finish.
My first impressions of Germany’s capitol city cover a vast variety of topics, ranging from the intense and obviously impacting (not-so-ancient) history to the abundant availability of baked goods. Berlin has also pleasantly surprised me with it’s accessible array of vegan options, modern entrepreneurialism vibe, and the extreme efficiency of transportation (though that last one should maybe not have come as quite a shock). As I continue to live in, explore, and appreciate this fascinating city I look forward to sharing stories, tips, and information along the way. Stay tuned.
