I guess three time’s a charm.
It took me three attempts to make it to my new university without incident… and now that I’ve figured it out, I’m looking forward to riding this route a few times a week to meet with advisers, instructors, and fellow students.
I believe that the quality of our lives can be largely determined by the quality of the routes we take on a daily basis- to work, school, family members, etc. If the journey is good, the time spent traveling is well-worth it.
Now, I have a confession to make. This summer, I couldn’t stop comparing Berlin to Hamburg. This was a mistake, since Hamburg is by far the more elegant city with touches of sophistication. Berlin, with it’s “poor, but sexy” (“arm, aber sexy”) attitude actively tries not to meet up to the standards cities like Hamburg, Munich, or Dresden provide. However, now that I’ve been in Berlin longer and really see more and more corners, I have to admit that there’s just so many cool corners in this city. Surprising architecture and sites.
Since I finally got my uni route down, I thought I’d share a few pictures.
