Berlin – Is it really Germany?
If you like electronic music & graffiti, this is for you…
After slowing down to ‘Island time’ for almost a month, I came to Berlin not really knowing what to expect.
The thought heading back to a big city after being in chilled out places like the Balearic Islands and Portugal makes you somewhat nervous, but I loved Berlin last time I was there, so my hazy memories pushed me onwards.
Berlin this time was fuelled by the blend of social commentary sprayed on every surface, art in every form, good electronic music, and a determination to try every beer I could.
I’d suggest that if you find people being themselves (weird) and graffiti a problem, you close your eyes and give most of Berlin a miss. However if that level of realism ‘does it’ for you, I couldn’t imagine a better place to hang out.
From punk, to rock, to the un-classifiable, there’s something for everyone.. Well, there’s something for most people…
