Danke Berlin!

Berlin is such a fascinating city! Not only is it historically rich and super important, which we were expecting, but it is also one of the most architecturally stunning places we have ever visited. A total surprise!

What makes Berlin so architecturally interesting is that SO MUCH of it is new, built after the Wall came down in the last 20 years.

From Frank Gehry to I.M. Pey, the most renowned architects in the world have new and breathtaking buildings here!

And the government buildings are so beautiful as well! It is really special to see how they use glass as a symbol of transparency and the extra efforts they put in their architecture - truly going above and beyond - to consciously and subconsciously promote the message of reunification and repentance.

Everywhere you go in Berlin there are traces of the past, seamless incorporated into the present and not hidden away. Like the one remaining watch tower from the cold war days we saw near Check Point Charlie.

Old buildings were destroyed from the inside out but their facades often remained intact and painstaking work went into recreating and re-purposing those structures.

And it is just so powerful to go and see the remnants of the Wall. To go and visit all of these places that have played such an important part in history. And to see and hear about it first-hand.

Really powerful stuff! Really amazing trip!

Thankful we are here and that we get to spend a few more days in Berlin!

    Who is I.M. Pey? Or do you mean I. M. Pei? Why would you be surprised that Berlin would have great architecture! That is one of the last things that would be surprising about any great European city. You seem to be really dump. Your comments are idiotic.

    It would be nice if you stop posting about yourself. No one really cares. Just post celebrity gossip.

    stop posting comments about yourself - no one cares what you are doing - people go on this website to read about actual celebrities - not your BORING travel blog

    You should visit the Sanssouci Castle in Potsdam. It's simply beautiful. Moreover, if you're still around on Saturday - go to the main public viewing place to watch Germany win over Portugal ;) .

    Perez, I think it is really cool that you travel with your mom. I went on a few trips with my mom, and now that she is gone, I am so glad I did - great memories.

    And did you happen to check out the architectural works of I. M. Illiterate or I. M. Toolazytolookitup?

    Berlin is "super important," huh? Well you're super stupid and super inane. You really are a moron. Try to make some friends, will you? Your attachment to your mommy is rather disturbing.

    Poor mama Perez, too bad she's so medicated-up due to her having a Fruit-Loop for a son; she should be running around with grandchildren, but that ain't ever going to happen…

    Well now we all see where you get your looks from. Your mother if FUCKING UGLY, and she passed that gene onto you as well. I wonder if she's also FUCKING STUPID, ’cause somehow you got that gene as well.

    Perez, glad you like your trip! Next time, you have to come to Frankfurt and visit the city of Goethe, world famous fairs, great architecture, one of a kind museums, breathtaking skyline, one of world's most important financial centers, home of the European Central Bank and so many more. But most important - the nice, friendly people. More than 180 different nationailities are living peacefully together in this beautiful city.
