select from my separate journeys in germany
Germany is an ordered and civilised place characterised by modernity and efficiency. It is also one with a deeply dark past, the lessons of which we should all take time out of our itinerary delighting in its urban culture to heed and listen. Germany is what you want it to be.
Berlin was one of the highlights of our Inter-Railing adventure through twelve countries. Berlin was urban, gritty, lively and came with an evocative side order of a Soviet past.
dusseldorf & cologne
This was a twin city trip in Germany's west using the Deutsche Bahn. Dusseldorf offered an insight into modern, contemporary Germany whilst Cologne offered a much needed slice of history.
