Did I complain about the weather yesterday? Here you see why. That’s pretty much how all 2013 looks so far in Berlin. Grey and cloudy sky, day in day out. I think they counted something like 30 minutes of sunshine this year.
But okay, you have to make the best of it and so we went out to take some photos anyways. This one is taken at the old port in Treptow, an area in south-east Berlin. They prepared for some exhibition, so the building was still enlightened when we’ve been there. And actually the grey sky is a nice contrast to the golden lights.
Sometimes I wonder how it would be to live in one of those houses close to the lake. I mean I am happy with our place, we just have to walk 5 minutes and we’re on the lake as well. But waking up in the morning and seeing the water? Must be awesome.
This restaurant is right around the corner. Even though I don’t really eat fish, it always looks good from the outside, but I never got a nice shot of it. And then it snowed last week, a perfect opportunity I thought. It’s been a Sunday evening; the place was empty without customers possibly due to the heavy snowfall. Luckily they didn’t turn off the lights too early.
“Impressive” is probably the most used word connected to giant cathedrals like the one in Milan. Well, I couldn’t agree more. The building itself, the third highest cathedral in the world, is awesome, but when you go inside it’s so dark and mysterious. So this photo is taken in there and it’s only one of the beautiful sights in there. Definitely visit the Duomo when you’re in Milan!
Chotkovy sady is my favourite place for an overview over the city of Prague. You wonder why? Well, first of all you have this amazing view over the city. And second, even more important, most of the time you can enjoy this view without having any people around. Even on New Years Eve, there was only one family standing there apart from us, enjoying the fireworks over the Old Town.
