Hi everyone, how are you today? Welcome to my new post! Last week, I promised you the continuation of a story from Berlin…
At first, I would like to thank my friends from the Berlin Tourist Board – Visit Berlin for the support which they have provided and the incredible patience which they have for me because my German is at the basic level and I teach it and I constantly “want” from them to talk me about Berlin’s interesting facts in German, so I will learn easier this language! So let’s start with our today’s adventure!
I promised to all of you that I would show you the famous Brandenburg Gate. When the previous post was taken, the gate was renovated. In Germany, they usually have a kind of custom to use summer holiday time for reconstruction of buildings of exceptional importance because they are preparing for the new autumn/winter season and then the largest number of tourists come to Germany, especially in Berlin.
In the previous post – LINK, I wrote you about the famous bus lines 100 and 200 that help you to “cruise” and get to know Berlin better. I showed you the famous Brandenburg gate, I have fulfilled the promise and now I can slowly walk to another location that is very beautiful to me and you should visit it when you already found yourself in the heart of Germany.
Slowly, but surely we are approaching to a Parliament. This part of the city is new and the architecture itself is modernist. The Parliament building itself is an older building, but there are certain elements such as the famous glass dome that you see on almost all of the postcards that represent the city of Berlin is almost new. Of course, it is open to visitors, but it is reserved for the bravest and with the greatest patience as the crowds are unbearable, so most people give up on sightseeing.
I always like to come here on the shore, sometimes I lean on the fence and watch the boats which are full of tourists and they love to wave people on the shore. Sometimes you just have to admit that these smiling faces also make you happy and I’m always gladly wave them, especially to the children, because who can resist the children and their amazing smile.
I usually come here when something is “wrong” in my life and does not go exactly as I planned, I buy something to eat, usually it’s a piece of fruit cake with blended raspberries, so I play sorrow scene like Carrie Bradshaw in Paris, just in Berlin! (and without that perfect French music which you hear when you watch that famous scene in Paris!).
This time, I wasn’t sad, but very happy to bring you to my second favorite place in Berlin! Really, how can I be sad when I have this cheerful shirt which I bought at final sale in Zara for just 7 euros. It can only be a reason for celebration and new photoshoot.
I did not even plan this shooting, I already had these trousers and sneakers on me. I bought the shirt that day and called the photographer to ask him when we can take some new photos for the blog, I just got the answer: “What are you doing now?”. My standard answer: “I was in Zara, the final sales are on, so I have to tell you…”. A brief sigh and silence meant that I should stop with the story of Zara! You know that my photographer does not like Zara, he does not like discounts, he does not like shopping at all… After a minute, an SMS message arrived: “See you in front of Brandenburg in 20 minutes!”.
So it was like we planned, after 20 minutes and my dressing up in the second Zara store… On the way, I bought new trousers! Forgive me, but they were 9 euros, I had to buy them! There, who would say that this shirt will fit in with my outfit, this looks so good. It is true that what people say is best to do things that are not planned.
These pictures of Parliament are very important and a bit different to me, and again that little Marko with a great desire to make new photos and of course to make a new post. Who knows when this little child in me will eventually grow up, maybe sometimes, and maybe never.
I have not met my dear Angie (Angela Merkel), I am waiting for the day when she will give me the honorary blogging order of honor and keys of Berlin because I “cleared” all the most important steps and benches in her city. Please, if someone has “connections” please, help me to meet her. One of the neighbours tells me that she lives near the Brandenburg gate and everyone is happy when they see her in one of the surrounding butchers shops. I went a couple of times, spent the money there, but I did not meet my dear Angie.

Don’t worry in a couple of days I will publish a new post where we will continue together to enjoy the charms of traveling and we will continue our adventure in Europe. I know that you loved the travel posts from July and now I will show you all the beauties of Salzburg and Linz! Next station: Austria!
