We are a South African born, Australian couple, taking a year off to travel and cycle tour through Europe. We happened upon cycling as a means of transport – allowing us to stay healthy (while consuming large quantities of cheese and wine), see a lot more of the countryside and hopefully save a few pennies. …
We both agreed, that if for some reason we had to go home after this week, we would remember it for the rest of our lives.
Well, no-one is more surprised that me to say that I am really enjoying the cycling. Carl, needless to say, is doing what he has always wanted to do.
Berlin feels like a teenager compared to the rest of Germany, perhaps the black sheep of the family too. Where the rest of Germany feels controlled, organised and regimented, Berlin is uninhibited, non-conformist and free.
