Sometimes you need to escape. It does not matter where you live and what you do. One should always take the freedom to take a break and leave his or her daily routine. (I know that this is a very student/freelancing thing to say, but fuck it). Especially if you got a berlin routine or “Alltag” how germans call it. Precious Berlin with its ever exciting attractions moves fast and without regard for bad moods. So there are times where you need to pull yourself out of the bubble. A perfect occasion to head to the coast and enjoy the freshness of the Ostsee. Its a very short journey, depending where you go it takes between 2 – 4 hours by train and even less by car. Its so beautiful to walk down the beach and let the wind blow it all away. The ocean as a endless soundscape. The landscape as an powerful example of the pure beauty of nature. Then you recognize that you will be back on Hermannstraße later that day, smelling döner, wondering about bubble tea and avoiding dogshit. And it never felt better to throw yourself into the bubble again.
