i can’t believe it! i managed to finish my never-ending to-do-list, my bags are almost readily packed and when i wake up tomorrow, i will be going on holiday, yay!
to celebrate travelling, here are some impressions of my neighbourhood close by, my kiez in berlin-wedding.
view of the tv-tower from nordufer.
friedrich-krause-ufer aka. the “nichts”. it’s a non-place. there’s nothing to see on that side of the spree! there are just lots of functional bridges for trains & cars, the ever ongoing construction site for the s-bahn, dirt, noise, everyone here is only passing by, passing & leaving this corner as fast as possible. but there’s something magic about lingering between all those busy bridges and being a quiet observer in the middle of these crossroads that you wouldn’t usually ever take notice of.
last week i had the flu and on most of the days i was too weak to leave my flat except for little walks to the doctor or the pharmacy. exciting, i know. time to get back to basics. sleep. eat & drink. snot. and meet up with all those friendly beings around you that can help you feel better soon:
1. warm socks.
2. something warm around your neck.
3. ginger & honey or other kinds of tea like sage, fennel, liquorice root… (drink!)
4. stuff to help free your respiratory passages.
5. salt & hot water for steam inhalation. (yes, i have a bowl that almost fits my face.)
