This is Berlin for me. On some days.

Berlin doesn’t welcome you with open arms. Berlin doesn’t suck you in, like Bangkok does. Berlin is just there and doesn’t care if you live here or not. In the same time Berlin is demanding like no other city. But Berlin doesn’t expect anything from you but for you to be yourself. And if you accept this and switch from the veil of illusion to the grimace of reality, Berlin will love you. And will give you everything this city has to offer. But not on a silver platter. You have to get it yourself.

I was 18 the first time I’ve been to Berlin. Memories are fading but I still do remember how I told myself that I will live here one day.

Meanwhile I live in Berlin since nearly three years and there’s no other city in this world I feel closer to myself. It wasn’t always easy and I know there will be hard times again. But right now Berlin is the place where I belong in this world. And I can’t imagine this to change anytime soon.

Berlin is different. For everyone. Every day.

This is Berlin for me. On some days.

And as versatile as Berlin can be is its soundtrack:

What is Berlin for you?

Hi, I'm Yvonne. Travel addict. Guilty as charged. Right now I'm probably falling off a camel somewhere in a desert, getting a new tattoo from a monk in Thailand or am carrying my luggage through a river in the jungle. But just as well I could be sitting on my sofa in Berlin, in my pyjamas. Good girls to to heaven, bad girls go everywhere. Everywhere sounds much more promising. So be travelous and follow me!

  1. Hi! I’ve just found your blog and I can already tell it’s going to be one of my favorites. I recently went to Berlin for the first time a few weeks ago and had almost the exact same thoughts you did your first time. It didn’t exactly captivate me immediately but I did feel at home and most myself while I was there… hopefully I’ll get to move there one day as well :)
