Thinking I had a day in Berlin to sleep in a bit before heading to Warsaw, was actually a planning error!
When Kennedy came to Berlin, he spoke the famous words “Ich bin ein Berliner” and Reagan called out Gorbachev here. I’m outgunned by the history of the city when trying to give my impressions about my passage here.
After spending a day in Cologne, I was excited to get on the night train towards Berlin.
In this fast rhythm towards my next assignment, I could -luckily- add a day to start the discovery of Cologne.
Koens new journey is about to start. This time it’s all about exploring Europe and Asia. Wherever possible, I’ll be trying to travel by train or ferry. A slower way of traveling should bring a nice pace to collect some impressions and meet some people.
