THE VEINS OF BERLIN




I think you've recognized my proclivity for controversity already... So it was a matter of course to visit the formerly divided capital of Germany again which represents a lot of contrasts nowadays.

History and Future
Grunge and Luxury
Artists and Politicians 
Modern Architecture and Old Monuments...  are like veins of this city's heart. 

Berlin is throbbing, vibrant, alive! 
And down to the steel skeleton of The Wall - inspiring!

'I am proud to come to this city as the guest...
and leave it as 

'Ich bin ein Berliner'.

  7. There is a great deal of history in Germany... I am really happy that they are no long divided... I did a project on this country when they were so divided that they could not go back and forth easily... the change has been very good xox

    I've been to Berlin once and I've still a lot of memories in my mind. You took great photos and caught great places in one of the most complex cities of Europe. I have to go back to better understand it.

  24. Wonderful photos, Ira! I'd love to visit Berlin one day. Ah, the mention of artists versus politicians gave my heart a little jolt, I think it's the rebel in me haha :) it looks like a fascinating place, I actually had no idea, but I'm definitely intrigued now! I've been obsessed with the idea of Paris and all its wonders lately, perhaps I should add Berlin to that list ;) x

  35. Oh my! I can recognize the brandenburg Gate, I believe, if I remember correctly... it was quite some years back! 2005! gosh.

    Berlin brought back great memories for me and hubby. For us, we were super grateful to be selected to participate in the annual Berlinale Talent Campus, in conjunction with the annual Berlin Film Festival. It was great to meet filmmakers all around the world who share the same passion for the work we do, which is in filmmaking. It was also awesome to know that our work is being recognized, in some ways, internationally!

    Believe it or not, a girl from a tropical country like Malaysia travelled with hubby to Berlin, it was also my very FIRST experience with REAL SNOW! For the first time in my life, I got to see snow for real!! Sounds so silly but I was super crazy happy like a silly school gal back then!!

    Oh boy, I love the artistic vibe that Berlin oozes and I could somehow feel it in the air, in the people (though not all are generally friendly, I must admit), But overall, I loved that trip so very much and I wish I would have the chance to visit this vibrant city again, that is Berlin!

    Thanks for sharing your experience. So loving this. If you are curious, this was my blog posts back then about our trip:

  64. Aaahhh, I can't believe you were in Berlin, Jeann! How cool is that!!! 10 years ago - wow!! I can imagine how awesome this experience was. Would love to meet some of those filmmakers as well. Haha! Not silly at all, dear! Snow has still even on me a huge impact - I'm totally thrilled and shoked when it's snowing outside.
    Gorgeous articles on Berlin, Jeann! Agree with your thoughts, Berlin is smell of arts and culture for real! Lovely memories of your life and adventures, my dear. Blogging is for sure a fantastic way to capture the past, present and the future! <3 Hugs!
