The city lights of Berlin

The city lights of BerlinBerlin is actually a larger city than Paris and to get to the interesting places you need to use some kind transportation. As a tourist you can buy a “Welcome card”. This is a card you can buy for 15 Euros and use on all public transportations. It lasts two days, but can also be bought for three days. I think it is worth the money.

The outdoor restaurants are many in Berlin and it is interesting to see city people go past. In Berlin you can see all kind of personalities. There are plain characters, business people and teens in crazy outfits. The food how ever is not worth the money, because it does not taste much.

Berlin is a rather grey city, but at night the city lights makes it magnificent and even the rough attitude of city inhabitants seem to get more friendly and open. For someone like me that like photography the city night lights make all the difference, because the photos become magical.

The Sony Center in Berlin

The Sony CentrePotsdamer Platz is often mentioned as the little New York, because of its skyscrapers.

The futuristic Sony Center  is located at Potsdamer Platz in Berlin. The Sony Center looks like what I would imagine the world would look like in the 21st century. It contains an IMax cinema, cafés and a shop for Sony’s latest products. Sony Center is one of the most interesting places in Berlin.

I recommend a visit.

Varamon Beach

Varamon BeachThis summer I found a new beach that is as good as any beach abroad. Varamon in Motala is Europe’s largest lake beach. The beach is a half Swedish mile long. I visited Varamon a day when it was 30 degrees and the lake lay glittering in the afternoon sun and the sand was soft.

Who could imagine a beach like that is possible to find in Motala and it is also the place were world championship in windsurfing take place next year.
