2022 Wanderlust Diary

Memories, emotions and also less happy events from 2022 unfold in my mind. I browse through all to remember the sunset in Portugal, a reunion in Sweden, days in nature and time spend on a Greek island.

I traveled more than I expected. I remember spring days in Brussels and nights in Berlin. The midsummer light in Paris after work and the streets of Vienna before German classes.

Berlin Science Week

I started thinking at my life so far when I was in the Naturkunde Museum, during Berlin Science Week, while surrounded by children (and dinosaurs). Growing up, I did not had the opportunity to attend this type of events.

This November, Berlin Science Week was a 10 days international festival with innovative scientific organizations, a different type of travel experience, and most important, a reminder to stay curios and optimistic.

Something new in Frankfurt

Something new, an old town and blue sky. Plus Apfelwein, handkäse, and why not, schnitzel with Frankfurt green sauce. Few of my notes during a spring day on Frankfurt am Main are below. Some call it Mainhatten for a reason, since is an international hub in Europe and the only city in Germany with skyscrapers, but for me will always be the city of books.

Berliner Philharmonie

The joy to discover the musical diversity in Berlin. This January I finally attended a concert at Philharmonie in KulturForum, that turned out to be a celebration of European friendship. And during Schubert Week at Pierre Boulez Saal, the conductor Thomas Hampson wished us to enjoy the music, because after all, we are in Berlin, one of the most incredible cities in the world.

A Year In The Life

We measure something so abstract as time in days, months and years as is easier for us to shape it. 2020 was no ordinary “year”, not in perception or in facts. So I was reflecting and looked back. Winter had lights, Berlinale film festival and music in Berlin. After that, Spring was marked by uncertainty. Summer was sunnier and bohemian in Hamburg, Prague and Munich, and Fall emotional.

4 things to do in Düsseldorf

While sitting in the train from Berlin to Potsdam, I started writing about my last trip to Düsseldorf. Even though “dorf” means village in German, Düsseldorf is such an interesting dinamic city today. I visited it in for a reunion in summer and by myself in autumn. And two time in winter, for the Christmas market, as we have to admit the holidays are the only best part during the cold months.

Unter den Linden ~ From Berlin, with love

Berlin has “Unter den Linden” and the central historical boulevard feels as an old postcard. The name comes from the linden trees that lined the boulevard. From the Brandenburg Gate until the Museum Island and Berliner Dom, passing by the Komische Oper, Neue Wache, Bebelplatz, Staatsoper, and soon, Humboldt Forum (reconstructed Berlin Palace).

A guide to Berlin Prenzlauer Berg

Slowing down is the mode currently around the globe. Interestingly enough, in Berlin I was not rushing here and there. Compared with other European capitals, what is the difference that makes the difference? I believe the city has a rare energy. Prenzlauer Berg’s architecture in particular is esthetically beautiful with many historical Wilhelmine buildings.
