Gute Nacht from No. 7
Berlin Travel Blog› entry 2 of 6 › view all entries
I suspect tonight may involve melatonin and an early, EARLY night.
My travel day was flawless. All flights were on time and my connection time was minimal. I arrived in Berlin around 11:00am hardly feeling weary at all. Usually I would attack the public transportation right away, starting with the airport, but something in me just said "Take a taxi." Honestly, it was the best 40 euros spent. It was fast and I didn't have to struggle with my bags. Win.
Checking in was easy. My room was ready and I was able to unpack and settle in. It's actually nice knowing that this is my place. There is no unpacking and re-packing. This is my residence, essentially, for the next 9 days.
And when I saw a Miró print hanging right beside door No.
I was hesitant to plan any sightseeing or activities for my arrival as I wasn't sure how I would feel. Today, I let my iPhone guide me. It lead me to
Collection Sammlung Scharf-Gerstenberg otherwise known as Surreal Worlds. And trust me, although an iPhone lead me down this path , it's no coincidence I ended up there. This whole day has been painted delightfully with references to the Surrealists. Have you watched the newest Woody Allen movie "Midnight in Paris?" There's this great scene where Owen Wilson's character (having travelled back to Paris in the 1920's) tries to explain to 3 surrealists his conflict of being in love with a woman from a different era.
Starting to feel delirious!
