Freezing Christmassy Berlin

Spontaneous travel is even better with a little planning. So there were tickets, a place to stay and a packed bag. There is something magical about Christmas in every city, but in case of Berlin I don´t mean the decorated buildings or the beautiful windows. I mean a very uncommon atmosphere in a quite non-German city which was so freezing and drowning in grey sky that it almost looked monochrome. Painful history still around. But untypicall things make trips even more enjoyable – of that I´m sure. Warm socks and glass(es) of mulled wine will soothe your mind and fuel you with energy to fight the freezing cold.

Roses remind me of one particular movie which always makes me cry.

And then we found a bar whose owner was Polish and it was his 40th birthday that night. We got invited to the party right away and had a great time!

About terissmile

Teresa is the name. I was born in the Czech Republic, but since I always leave a piece of my heart in every place I had chance to live for a while, I feel more like a child of the world. It all started with moments which had a huge impact on my emotional level and on myself as well. Moments seemingly ordinary and insignificant from the common point of view, more specifically emotions written in human faces. I started chasing those candid ephemeral moments that are there only for a second and then they are gone and lost forever - be it loneliness, fear, anxiety, astonishment, joy, love, disappointment, loss... But it´s all real. Real emotions of real people. I do not follow any rules in particular, the only thing I insist on is honesty and genuineness that help me to add life to possibly every shot I take. Since minimalism is my way, I try to keep them as minimalist as possible. That is how I create my world. Take a look if you like. https://thestoryofmylifebyterismile.wordpress.com/
