Berlin (Dec 15 – Jan 16)

After Amsterdam I got the train back to Berlin to spend the holiday period with the friends I stayed with in November when I arrived in Europe.

Highlights included:

  • Bike-riding around Berlin in the chilly winter air, discovering the Tiergarten, Mitte and the Neue Wache Memorial. More on that here.
  • Visiting the very excellent Reichstag building, home of the German Bundestag (national parliament). More to come here.
  • A day trip out to Beelitz-Heilstätten, a former hospital complex for sufferers of consumption and tuberculosis, now derelict. Photos from there here.
  • Spending Christmas and the New Year with my friends and their family, including visiting lots of Christmas Markets and getting to be the photographer at my friends’ impromptu wedding!
  • Fantastic exhibition at the C/O Gallery, especially an extensive retrospective of the work of Anton Corbijn.
