Hindmarsh Island, South Australia Island magic

Posts Tagged: postcrossing

In November 2011 I did my first trip to Europe, specifically Berlin and Bielefeld in Germany and Goes, in The Netherlands. I was going to a Postcrossing postcard meeting and meet other Postcrossers. I was away for 3 weeks and had an amazing time. I took over 600 photos and as I look at the pictures the task of sorting and telling a bit about my trip just seems so daunting that I put it aside ‘for another day’.

Time marches on and it is now 2 months since I went and other than a couple of food item pictures on facebook uploaded while I was away the story of my trip hasn’t gotten any closer. I was talking on the phone with a good friend Debashis about my dilemma and he suggested just do one day at a time. So this is the start, you may get more than one day or several.

I left Adelaide, Australia on a Tuesday afternoon and flew to Singapore, changed planes and then onto Frankfurt, Germany.

Sunrise Frankfurt Germany I watched the sunrise at Frankfurt airport while I was waiting for my next flight to Berlin.

 I was met at Berlin airport by Paulo. I was staying with Paulo and Ana in Berlin for the next 8 days.

Berlin has the most fantastic public transport system, I never realised how poorly Australia does in moving people around it’s cities.. We bought a weekly ticket for me and then went into the subway to go back to their flat.

 I was happy to be in Berlin after a 21 hour flight. My 3 week adventure was just beginning. Only downside of the day was I tripped on the cobbled footpath and fell heavily. Both my knees went numb. My fault, it was dusk (at 4 pm in the afternoon), I was tired and mostly I was too busy talking and chatting to Ana and Paulo.

Cobbled footpathThis was going to have reprecusions in the days and weeks ahead.
