Melt! and Berlin

So i have been extra busy the last few weeks. I have been back in London for about 5 days and I am already missing Berlin. After arriving on the 13th July, I was pretty much made up about what berlin was like - full of hairy Germans, un friendly and full of ugly brick buildings. In fact it was a multicultral city full of street art, music and beauty. I met some great people while out in Straushousse Aller, North East and even bumped into a mate from home who had recently moved to East Berlin. After a free tour which was incredible, and taking an amazing amount of photo's we headed to Melt! Festival in Feropolis , about 2 hours away. A small festival opf only 20 thousand and predomenantly German follwing, it was one of the best frestival's I have ever been too.


Set on a location where beauty is not needed, the old steel works in the remote village came to life at night with artists such as Fake Blood, Ricado Vilalobos, Tiga and Modeselektor playing to crowds of a plenty. I made some great new friends as well as having fun with my old and felt at ease in the country. I managed to make some German friends called Ela and Sebastian, anmd hopefully they will come visit when they are in London in September.

i have grown to become facinated by German history. I am in awe of Europe and the amount of history it has. It is hard to believe that the Berlin wall came down only 20 years ago! You can still see the divide - and the street art helps this. I really would love to live in Berlin, especially as its only £300 a month rent all inclusive a month!

I have many pictures that i will upload, but for now, here is why I love Berlin.
