A Bicycle in Berlin

2014-08-16 03.49.45There is no better mode, I am convinced, of reaching ALL your Berlin destinations (but it’s about the journey, right) in 24 hours, than renting a bicycle. They have designated lanes. It feels safe. And it is flat! CRUZIN.

Spree! aka best possible name for a river or any location

How smart were all the city planners to actually let you bike along all the sprees in Euro? In bike lanes, no less. It feels lucky.

Saying “Alexanderplatz” makes me feel giddy, and I think my name would work well here too. I may start calling my apartment Daraplatz.

It started to thunderstorm, and I took cover under some awnings! Until my usual restless “get lost” approach to city exploration resumed, and I took off in the direction of the Berlin Wall.
