It’s now a massive event, but when i was there it was so peaceful and that really suited the place much better I thought.

So long, farewell, auf wierdersehen, good-bye… Berlin has been rich, vibrant, and so rewarding.  The coming weeks will be spent in Turkey and Greece on the move, so blogging may be a challenge, we’ll see.  No families to meet, but time to spend reflecting on my trip so far.  I’ve met so many great new […]
