It’s a long Easter weekend and I cannot wait! I equally cannot wait for my upcoming trip to Berlin next week. Hurray.
Did you know I have a love affair with Berlin? It reminds me of a mini London. It’s cosmopolitan, exciting, provocative and stimulating. It’s creative scene is known for it’s exploration and risk-taking. I love the entrepreneurial spirit and coffee culture. I’ve been going for many years and every time I see it with fresh eyes.
I love nothing better than getting lost, exploring new places and finding the unusual. How do I do this? I ask locals, look up recommendations, hire a Vespa, take my notebook, my sketching pens, a camera and off I go exploring.
The beauty of this trip is that I’ve managed to combine it with a little business, The Hive conference, some meetings for Mapology Guides and lots of time to spend with friends and make new acquaintances. How excited am I? Of course, you dear readers will also benefit from my excursion as I’ll be bringing back lots of photographs of my week away.
There’s only one sad thought. My dearest friend Holly, who lived in Berlin, has recently moved back to Canada to start a coffee roastery with her husband. I’m totally excited for them but gutted not to be spending time together in this cool city. Boo!
Have a great Easter everyone. See you back here on Monday.
