In the end of January something rather weird happened. I was hangover and scrolling through social media. That's not the weird part. Suddenly I saw a status update where somebody was renting an apartment from Berlin for 11 days. I felt like this was for me so I sent a message. One week after that I was heading to an airport, travelling first time alone abroad.

I was also honoured to meet Mimosa Pale, a Finnish artist who had a hat boutique in Berlin several years ago. I borrowed one of her mindblowing hats for an event I never attended because of crazy-long queues. But I got few selfies wearing it, obviously and luckily. This hat was so huge it was hard to get in picture as a whole piece and it's not the biggest hat Mimosa has created.
Abandoned places of Berlin are a thing and of course you need to check at least one when visiting the city. We managed to check two places with my bf during his short stay: Königin-Elisabeth-Hospital and Water Park Blub. The hospital was kind of a small building, but it was nice to explore it. Blub was amazing, shame that the most of it was burned away. There were snowing the day we visited Blub and I was afraid of rusty nails lurking under snow so there were many areas we didn't check. Good that it was easy to get in the water park, I think I need to check this again during summer time. It's located in Neukölln.

I also went to check Poland one day. I took a PolskiBus to Wrocław and arrived there in the middle of fog. It bothered me a bit that I couldn't see the city, but as a Silent Hill fan the experiment turned to be even more enjoyable.The city was full of churches and seems like I only pictured them.....
I really need to go back to Wrocław, one day was just not enough. I met my Tumblr-friend Mag for the first time and they were the best guide through the city and it's
bars churches. Thank you, dear!
Few weeks I took a picture from Helsinki that looks like Wrocław...
