Dreaming About Berlin

Having been born and raised in a country like the Philippines, I often find myself day-dreaming about going to places I have never been to. Places that are entirely different from the one I have grown accustomed to.  I can literally conquer the world with the help of Google Maps. But of course one day I hope that this would actually turn to reality.  

Growing up in a tropical country, I am often amazed as to why Westerners constantly flock to Southeast Asia.  I would also laugh at the simple thought that those who live under our powerful sun would wish for a white Christmas so they could at least experience wearing thick jackets and warmers which I am sure they find in thrift stores abound the metro.  


One of my goals is landing at least one of my itchy feet in continental Europe.   I have many European cities in mind and one of those is Berlin.  I am a novice when it comes to the German language.  But I am sure I can learn this in a heartbeat if opportunity will present itself.

Reading about Berlin excites me as I pray I could make this dream to a reality.  My closest friends are fully aware that I am in love with old-world architecture.  In my travels, I would not miss visiting any thing that has a bit of history in it like old churches, fortress ruins or historic monuments and buildings.  Since my country was under the Spanish rule for more than 300 years, our old towns are blessed with the kind of architecture I am on a look-out for.

Germany is a perfect destination for me I must say.  And with the colorful Berlin as its capital, I am sure I will not run out of historic places to visit. Seeing the photo of the largest palace in Berlin, the Schloss Charlottenburg, my mind is whirring with curiosity. How I wonder what its interiors look like! For someone who love history, seeing Berlin Wall is a must!

Being a budget-traveler, I am always on the lookout for sales may it be for air fare or hotel room accommodations. However, I know that if I get to visit Berlin, I would need to up this a little.  Once in a while it is good to experience a little bit of luxury. I can say it would be my way of rewarding myself.


For those travelers who soon will turn their dreams in visiting Berlin, Germany to reality, finding cheap hotels and comparing prices in Berlin will be a lot easier for you by including careful planning and budgeting.  I am sure that once you have found the perfect accommodation, your visit in Berlin will go smooth as planned.  Remember that in every place we go to, it is how we perceive the travel experience. Enjoy the place, but most importantly relish the memory of just being there.
