Berlin, biking around the city, Day 1

The traveling saga started once again! This time I stayed a week in Berlin, then I went south of Germany for a few days, and then Romenia for a week. But it all starts with a few too many hours at the aiport in São Paulo, than a little stop at the airport in Madrid and then finally in Berlin, where I was most welcomed by my friend Kauana and her boyfriend Morritz.

~~~~~

A saga de viagens começou novamente! Desta vez eu fiquei uma semana em Berlim, daí fui para o sul da Alemanha por alguns dias e depois fiquei na Romenia por uma semana. Mas pra variar, tudo começa com algumas horas demais no aeroporto de São Paulo, daí uma parada no aeroporto de Madrid e finalmente em Berlim, onde fui muito bem recebida pela Kauana e seu namorado Morritz.

I was most impressed with her house. It’s gorgeous and so roomy!

Since I had arrived a bit late in the evening, it was only the next morning that we went out to see the city. Kauana took two days off to take me around the city on the week days. And the first day was a full day! We rode over 30km on bikes to see points of interest! And the day was so pleasant and the city is so civilized, it was a fantastic day!  Bicicles are actually the rulers of the streets here haha

~~~~~

Como eu havia chegado tarde nesse dia, foi só na manhã seguinte que nós saímos para ver a cidade. A Kauana tirou dois dias de folga para me levar pra passear pela cidade nos dias da semana. E o primeiro dia foi bem cheio! Andamos mais de 30km de bicicleta para ver pontos de interesse! E o dia estava tão agradável e a cidade é tão civilizada, foi um dia maravilhoso! E as bicicletas são soberanas nas ruas aqui haha

The best way to go around the city is by bike, trust me. The Bicycles are the queens of the streets there.

A melhor maneira de conhecer a cidade é de bicicleta, pode acreditar. As bicicletas são as rainhas das ruas lá.
