So after last week’s moaning and groaning, this week I’m back on track! The weather is helping — it’s been glorious this past week and the city is just drenched in autumn’s warm tones — and it’s hard to stay gloomy when the sun is shining! We still plan to head home to Australia sometime in the winter though and need to book flights soon. Prices are a little on the scary side so we’ve been putting it off, although I’m pretty sure that is definitely not the solution to the problem.
Earlier in the week some friends and I took the train to Potsdam, about 45 minutes outside of Berlin, where we ate cake, wandered around its palaces and just generally pretended we were princesses for the day. It was lovely to have a change of scenery and go somewhere different for a change.
And today? Today started off beautifully with brunch, (another) walk in the crunchy leaves and then an afternoon exploring an abandoned railway yard. You know, as you do here in Berlin. It was so atmospheric and a little creepy — I’ll be sharing some of the pics this week! If you follow along with me on Snapchat (@deptofwandering) you may have seen a little sneak peek as to what I got up to. Speaking of spooky, did you do anything fun for Halloween? I watched A Nightmare on Elm Street. And then Ben went out and I had to go to bed by myself. It may have taken me a little while to get to sleep…
Here are this week’s favourite links:
WATCH: Here’s a great little short film to kick off your Sunday with: 97%. Via an app on his phone while on the train, Bert discovers that a 97% love match is near. Will he find her before she gets off the train and is gone forever?
READ: I’m always grateful for tips on how I can improve my travel photography because, after all, I’m only an amateur! This article is a goodie.
EAT: Pumpkins are EVERYWHERE I look and I’m thinking that this delicious number should feature on our dinner table next week.
MAKE: This would make such a great addition to any kitchen or study.
BUY: I’m pretty sure that this bag and I were made for each other.
GO: I’ve travelled through cities so much over the past few years and it’s made me miss the wide open spaces of the wilderness. How incredible would it be to explore Los Torres del Paine in Chile’s Patagonia?
Happy November, friends!
