I went on a hiking trip around Wandlitzsee, near Berlin. There were some really cool things to see, like mushrooms stuck to a tree, and a tree half chomped to bits by a beaver.
I went on a bike trip from Berlin to Beelitz-Heilstätten, an abandoned military hospital. This was where Adolf Hitler was unfortunately repaired after having his ball blown off during World War 1. Later, it was used as a Nazi military hospital, and afterwards served as a military hospital for the Soviet Union until the 1990’s. Now it is simply a collection of spectacular ruins.
We were told that we wouldn’t be able to go in as the area was blocked off and not open to individuals. But we just kept walking on into the grounds expecting to see a sign or fence indicating where we weren’t allowed, but never saw anything of the sort.
I got to see some crazy looking drones at the Berlin airshow earlier this year. In another life, I could imagine having become a drone developer. I think it would be quite fun to build a little gizmo to go cruising around taking photos, dropping off mail or whatever other interesting uses I could think of.
Now that we’re into some cooler weather, I thought I’d point out the day some idiot (me) decided it was a good idea to go test out his new inline skates at 34° C! This was the hottest day of the year so far, and I think I’ll go find some place with shade or water next time Whizzing around on searing hot asphalt doesn’t lend itself well to staying cool Thanks to Robinson and Anna for a great day out though
