Hiking in Berlin

I experienced hiking Berlin style today. In Berlin, hiking means to go for a walk in the “wilderness”. In Berlin, “wilderness” refers to the bushy bits between the buildings ­čśÇ We took the train to the outskirts of town, then meandered our way through the suburbs, into some beautiful small parks with lots of bush, stopped for ice cream near the local palace then headed over to a lake. The weather was not compatible with swimming, but it was definitely compatible with walking. Lots of fun ­čśÇ

The “hike” included some city streets, just to spice things up a bit.

This freakishly huge beetle looked like it was about to eat me ailve. The locals didn’t seem alarmed, so I’m assuming it is harmless though ­čśÇ

  1. These pictures do look fantastic. Sometimes the right city scape can be just as attractive as the country side
