If you insist on being rainy Berlin, I'm going to spite you and enjoy my day listening to this and having a cozy weekend in the confines of our apartment.

And staying in my pajamas.

Amidst the hurry

Before I landed in Berlin, Brendan and I were able to spend sometime in these wonderful places...

 Blue Ridge Parkway, North Carolina 

Manhattan from the 86th floor of the Empire State Building.

Central Park. 

Manhattan from our hotel room.

New York is more magnificent than any book, movie, story, poem, etc. could ever begin to express.

While North Carolina might be hot and humid, it has a lovely Southern charm
that I can't wait to spend more time with.

I wish somebody would tell Berlin that it is July, not October.  I'm pining for a cozy sweater, warm boots, and my box of scarves in my dad's attic.  We only have two weeks left here, and despite the insane schedule and sad weather, it has gone insanely fast and I'm dreading the day we have to leave. 

Dear Berlin,
Please find some sunshine for the rest of our time here.

Currently listening to:  Video Games, Lana del Rey.

Ich liebe Deutschland.

 (The bells from the church almost made me tear up.  Honestly.)


Currently listening to:  I'm too busy doing homework to listen to anything!
