The Schwebebahn in Wuppertal used to be on my bucket list…not anymore. An Odyssean journey through Berlin and Hamburg ended in paradise.
Lately, there’s been plenty for me write about, and I just haven’t been doing it. The last several posts were photos that I certainly liked, but there wasn’t much text.

I love my adopted home, and Berlin has a fantastic bustling energy that makes me feel more creative. But Hamburg? It’s is a dream. An unfulfilled… Continue reading a broken church in Hamburg
