I’d love to start this one by moaning about the weather, but I can’t because one of the links in Berlin has done a way better job (read below). So I retreat to choosing a photograph of Mitte, depicting the beauty of a grim crossing: Jessica of Best Wishes Magazine took this one of Rosenthaler Platz (and tagged it #linksinberlin for all of us to see, thank you!). And I recommend you push play on Dena’s new hit – Summer doesn’t mean a thing. Because, really. And then read away:
There is something special about places in the world that you immediately feel at home. To me, this is Shakespeare & Company in Paris – the small bookstore with a great history. When I first visited, as soon as I walked through the door, time seemed to stop. If only for a moment, I had entered a world on its own: huge piles of books, so many of them that the tiny shelves were likely to crack under the heavy pressure. Listening to a piano player while browsing the book selection, I felt a lump in my throat when I left. Back in Berlin, we have Shakespeare & Sons.
With temperatures way above the 30s, the last week was spent outside or at one of the many lakes around Berlin as often as possible. Nevertheless, we found the time to collect the latest #linksinberlin, with – of course – many more ideas to spend these beautiful days in Berlin.
And we loved all your contributions to the #linksinberlin hashtag on instagram – lieber_honig’s pretty sunset over gritty tracks happened to depict our current Berlin-mood the best. Thanks for the picture and keep them coming!
This week has been busy for me, planning a major thing I will tell you about next week… (maybe). This is why I asked instagram for help, looking for a perfect-Berlin-moment captured in a square and made even better with a filter. Over 400 images tagged with #linksinberlin were submitted and I had a hard time deciding… But there are many weeks coming where we can feature those and thus I decided to start with a classic: early summer bliss by the canal, pictured by instagram user @bye_boring.
