Oh f@#$% I'm back.

I'm home from my Berlin vacation and I am trying to get back into the swing of things. It was such a great time and I am more inspired than ever to make a big change in my life. Getting out of your surroundings does wonders for the soul. Along with enjoying quality time with my pal Tiffany, I met some cool people, ate amazing foods, cycled throughout the city and visited some special locations like a a geodesic dome graveyard, an abandoned dinosaur amusement park and the chalk cliffs off the Baltic Sea. I admit, I did not shoot as much as I should have. The combination of biking, trying to avoid looking touristy and just being caught up in a whirlwind is to fault.
Here are just a few exceptional moments that I managed to capture:

Stumbled upon this pennant adorned street at the perfect time of day.

bar staff of birds at one of Berlin's many parks

Crazy circus tent spotted on the way to the Ostsee

hundreds of jelly fish at Sassnitz

Baltic Sea dwelling swans

abandoned dinosaur park in Treptow

T-Rex!

A much anticipated trip to Teufelsberg

perfect weather for breaking into a geodesic dome

you can tell I really liked it in there
and of course le classic plane window shot
Now I'm just trying to bite down and bear the rest of the work week. I will surely try to get back to all your comments and catch up on posts but all in due time. It's always a bit daunty to play catch up when your mind is floating else where. Many more post on Berlin, recent discoveries and treasures to come.
I missed you guys!

Your Berlin photos are stunning! My favorites are the abandoned dinosaur park and the jellyfish. Jellyfish scare the hell out of me, though I'm fascinated with them!
