Nomading 2016: I suck at travel blogging – London & Berlin

Introduction

I just realized that I never finished my blog series on traveling at the end of 2016. I had lots of fun for the rest of the trip, and while I got a little sick, it was awesome to hang out with my best friend Lewis in a totally new place! We also stayed with my cousin in Berlin, who now lives there, so it was super good to see him as well. I don’t have time to write a bunch, but I’ll include some pictures! Overall, what a great trip!

 

London

I spent my first Christmas Eve./Day completely alone (it was kinda awesome), and went to a dub show, which was amazing. Lewis flew in a few days after I got there, and after unexpectedly switching from an Airbnb to a hostel, we settled in, partied, and explored.

 

Berlin

WOW. Berlin was an amazing place. The music, the people, the food, the nightlife, the diversity! Plus, it’s affordable, and really a super place for artists. Lewis and I were treated like kings at this synthesizer shop because of his connection to Make Noise, where he builds modular synths. I loved seeing/spending time with my cousin, who I haven’t seen in a few years. NYE was amazing, with a thunderous sound of fireworks all throughout the city – and it snowed some powder on our last night there. So many places to explore – I will be back!
