picture of a flash of rainbow casting on to my white shirt

i just got home from Rotterdam, i was happy, i saw rainble cast onto my white shirt. i felt a sudden euphoria. i took out my analog cam and prepared to shoot. it was not in focus, i pointed the camera to my bed to test and to figure out what’s wrong. it was just not in focus. at last i decided to use my phone. but just as i turned back and ready to take the picture, the rainbow is gone. and there was only my white shirt left hanging on the wall

Berlin, Lonely Planet Stanley & Liviangstone Schoolstraat 21, 2511 AW Den Haag

Things always seem exciting before you start doing it. My trip to Berlin began with this. i rememberd my excitement going to the bookshop and buying the book. When you’re new to travelling probably you think buying a guide is the correct way to start. It turned out i was, too, simple. You cannot plan everything when you’re travelling, and even a 300 pages thick travel guide won’t tell you everything about the city. There is so much to explore which is not included in the book. However it was a nice experience. i made it to Berlin and had a good time there anyway. By now i’m still figuring out whether a travel guide is useful or not. next time i’ll try without a guide


UPSIDE DOWN

BERLIN


Germany is a square. Berlin is within the square, but it keeps crossing the boundary. Adding a splash here and there.


It’s not fancy or delicate as the Hague. It’s old and shabby, it’s worn out. But it’s underground and diverse in a specific way.

Showering is nice at least I feel the half an hour in the shower is the best time spent everyday.

There were just so many inspirations coming out of nowwhere when you’re showering. Or either you just relax, let the thoughts flow. Don’t know if it’s because I’m studying art so that I’m losing so much hair.
