Continuing with my Instagram Postcards of Berlin series where I showcase just what I’m doing when I’m at home in Berlin and not travelling, here’s how I enjoyed the rest of summer. Curious about what I was doing during the first half? Check out my July highlights.
Between press trips to Brussels and Alpe Di Siusi, I did my best to experience my Berlin expat life to the fullest.
Explored boutique shops in West Berlin like Chapeaux Hutmode where you can order custom-made hats.
Unfortunately, I am too poor to purchase pretty hats like this!
Hit up the cute anti-designer accessory shop Gallery Shrill and met the lovely owners!
Gallery Schrill is full of quirky accessories like sunglasses and cufflinks (it boasts the largest collection in Europe).
A lazy Saturday morning brunch at Literaturhaus.
A wet cold evening with my favorite girl in the world at Zefiro Bistro.
Enjoyed a Calessino Tour through Berlin with Sandy and Luci West where we checked out iconic sites like Brandenburger Tor.
Thanks to Luci, she made us famous on the Internet with her In A Berlin Minute about our Calessino Tour. While you’re at it, watch the rest of her videos if you want to know what life is like in Berlin!
Another stunning urban sunset in Prenzlauer Berg. I heart my kiez more than you know!
This is an entryway to a children’s school. What?!
Bashful graffiti and street art in Prenzlauer Berg.
Chalk art like this appears quite frequently in my part of Prenzlauer Berg.
Sun shining through the trees near Tempelhof.
Industrial wastelands in Berlin where souls go to die.
Speaking of dead souls, I think they often get lost at rural train stations just outside of Berlin.
Watched friends learn how to waterski, as I drank beers and cheered from the sidelines.
As I look back on my summer in Berlin, I realize just how incredible my time abroad has been! I’ve experienced life in a way I never thought possible and found true happiness for the first time. I’m thankful each and every day!
Soon I’ll publish my September edition but in the meantime, you can always follow me on Instagram (@cherylhowardblog) to see photo updates about my life in Berlin and of course, on the road.
