18 November 2019

A weekend in Berlin. Family & Friends.
Berlin is actually my hometown. But Berlin has always been too loud for me, too much, too little, too dirty, too rude, too anonymous, too everything. I don't like being in Berlin. Although that's unfair to Berlin. I just don't like being in cities. Bern, yes Bern is the right size. Just into the city, up and down one or two streets, out of the city again. Into the green, into nature, into the reduced.
And yet we are always drawn back to Berlin, both professionally and privately. This time there are two of us, I was able to start the weekend with a wonderful interview for my podcast, we are staying with our daughter, we are having breakfast with friends and taking a lot of time for mum.
We do what all Berliners seem to do on Sundays: have breakfast in cafรฉs. We're also happy to stay into the afternoon. We get into conversation with young people. And admire their attentiveness, their perception, their desire for authenticity. Would we have been so aware at that age?
Sometime after a wonderful breakfast, we stroll on, visit the Natural History Museum (full! loud! interesting!), look at the formation of the earth and all the giant dinosaurs and end up at the Futurium, the House of Futures, at the end of Sunday. We quickly realise that we have to come here again. Just not on a rainy Sunday. Because the queue to get in is long, the exhibition ingenious, the restaurant-kitchen there excellent.
Sometimes you need a weekend like this. This time Berlin showed its beautiful side. Thank you, you crazy city.

We are currently planning our biggest adventure. We want to set off on an open-ended, no-plan trip ? on two motorbikes ?? in 2020. Until then, we are dreaming, researching and looking forward to it. -----------------------------------
