Europe 8/17 - Germany : Miss You Already, Berlin! Auf Wiedersehen!

worry about the chances you miss
when you don't even try."

Day 9 - Thursday, 22 June 2017
I feel like I don't want to rush in Berlin, visiting places as much as I can and decided to be more relax during my trip in Europe, in this case, Berlin, I have no designated destination in that morning so I decided to explore around the neighborhood on the other side.

Let's say I will just do some park hopping for today and just walk around the area. Passing the Volkspark and I can say this park is soooo big. Volkspark Friedrichshain is a large urban park on the border of the Berlin neighborhoods of Friedrichshain and Prenzlauer Berg. In this park you may find lot of monuments, sculptures and works of art. Lot of people do jogging, biking or just sitting there. It is also recommended to explore around Berlin by bike.

Day 8 - Wednesday, 21 June 2017

Guten Morgen, Berlin!

It's Germany already and this country already on my list since long time ago. I decided to take Free Walking Tour by Sandemans at Berlin because I have no idea what to visit in Berlin beside the Berlin Wall. I put my trolley backpack on the storage and checked out. Someone from the Free Walking Tour team will pick up those who joins the tour at several hostel. She pick us up around 10 AM and we walked into different hostel before heading to the meeting point at Brandenburg Gate area. We took the bus and I bought Tageskarte for Berlin AB (1 day) ticket, 7 euro.

Do you spotted the metal walkway on your left side? It's First Cliff Walk at Grindelwald, Switzerland :)
Day 7 - Tuesday, 20 June 2017

One night is not enough at Grindelwald, hope to stay longer in here. I checked out earlier and store my bags at their baggage storage, anyway it's Free. I am truly in love with this hostel, Mountain Hostel, I had my breakfast which I could tell was a fancy breakfast I ever had during my entire traveling when I stayed in hostel, so many choices of breakfast and everything is gut! Later on I guess I will write a review about this hostel because I had an amazing stay even it's just for a night.

I took a local bus where the bus stop, Grund is just next beside the hostel, I went to Firstbahn Bus Stop to take Cable Car to Grindelwald First. The journey took about 10-15 minutes from Grund to Firstbahn. I love the ambience here, when I get on the bus, I am the only one passenger. The driver will greeting you and it just made my day, I showed him my visitor's card but he got it already and said "It's okay, just get in" (while smiling). Anyway it's also common for a dog to get on the bus too, at first I was amazed when I saw a big dog get on to the bus with their owner. Lot of people take their dog with them and take a walk or even ride the bus hehe.

Europe 5/17 - Switzerland : Bern, Thun, Interlaken and Grindelwald

It's the most expensive country but yet here I am,
a Solo Female Backpacker having her "me time" as a reward for herself
Yes, it was super expensive but worth it :)
Amazing view at Grindelwald, Switzerland
Day 6 - Monday, 19 June 2017

SWITZERLAND = my kind of me time :)

BERN

I took overnight bus by Flixbus (cost 29 Euro) from Paris to Bern, Switzerland. Why Bern? Simply because I want to go to Switzerland and Bern was the cheapest option if I start my Switzerland trip from there. There was a moment when yeah, it was my bad when the bus stop at Geneva, Switzerland, I thought it would be like 15 minutes stop so I went out of the bus and did a quick stroll around area. And apparently it’s just really a quick stop and the driver actually want to drop off some passengers. So, after a quick stroll, I want to go back to the bus and I was surprised. The bus already moved and almost left me there, then I stopped the bus and phew! I got into the bus again and they asked me “Where you go?” I said “Bern.” I don’t know what will happen if I didn’t get into the bus that quickly and what happened if they already left, haha, so careless.
