F21: Hello From Berlin!

Hello from Berlin, Germany! Natalie and I arrived here Friday morning, and have already seen so much of the city in just the 3 days we've been here so far. Today is our last day here, and we're making the most of it by exploring the last few neighborhoods we haven't hit up yet, and hopefully checking out the Anne Frank exhibit I've been dying to check off my list. The past few days have been one huge blur of food, wine, beer, German, Google Maps, public transportation (we're always on that S or U train), art/graffiti, electro and eccentric interior and exterior design. Berlin was everything I've dreamed it to be and more. The city is bursting at the seems with creativity and youth everywhere you go, even in the more gentrified areas (Berlin Mitte or Prenzlauer Berg for example). Berlin is food heaven, with a heavy Turkish influence and an all around preference for exotic tastes. You'll most likely find more Vietnamese and Thai restaurants wherever you go than German food, surprisingly. But that's what is the best thing about big cities like Berlin. The melting pot nature and cultural diversity is so distinct here. It's really marvelous. It gives NYC a run for it's money. You walk around with beers like its nobody's business. You'll find a library in a techno club in case you feel like reading some classics. You pay whatever you want for wine at the local wine bar because they still have trust in the honor system. The same goes for public transportation here, where there are no ticket takers or turn-styles, but users of public transportation are trusted to purchase their tickets according to use. Berlin so far feels like such a free-minded city that embraces so much of a well-rounded focus on the human spirit. Endless beer and wine makes the city feel less drunk on alcohol and more high on social interaction. It's just wonderful! 

This is just a quick glimpse from our first night in Berlin and some other moments so far. Our first night we stumbled across Haus-Schwarzenberg in Berlin Mitte, a grungy, artistic building made up of artistic work spaces, an independent cinema, a cafe/bar, and a few museums. It was such a standout spot from the rest of the Berlin Mitte neighborhood, which is more ritzy and polished than the rest of Berlin. Haus-Schwarzenberg was right up our alley and we ended up drinking some beers with the locals at the off beat bar at the back of the alley, ESCHSCHLORAQUE, as the DJ spinned everything from old school rock and metal to 90s rap and Cuban music. So down with everything about this place.  

Natalie and I have been sporting Forever 21 our entire trip, so make sure to check out the #F21xMe hashtag on our Instagrams to check out our fashion adventure in this amazing city!
