an excuse to adventure in unexplored neighborhoods

  








this morning at 10 a.m. I had to collect an item I won on ebay, and despite the -11C° it was the perfect day for wandering around an unknown neighborhood! I didn't expected Karlshorst to be that appealing to my taste! there are so many beautiful early '900 villas, a mysterious bike path leading to the woods, small shops selling a little bit of everything... it is quite far away from my usual wanderings, but probably with such a house (peek a random one up here in the pics) I wouldn't mind living a bit outside from the centre of Berlin. I just can't wait to go back there after all the trees will become leafy and green, I am sure I will be speechless then!
the last two pictures are from Karl Marx Allee, just round the corner from my place. I was very happy to see the first outdoors tables of the season, it's still bloody cold, but sitting in the sun for 5 minutes is a real pleasure!

God I want to come and live in Germany! Just got back from a roadtrip over there (on a retro buying spree) and I would definitely move there if possible. Love it! Emma
