What to take with you on a trip? It may seem to you that this is a very simple question and the answer to it consists of a few simple steps. But unfortunately, no.
Once I decided to go to Berlin to a coffee exhibition. I invited my friend K. who is also a coffeeholic and a spontaneous soul to join me. I was very grateful he came along because I was scared to go alone. The last time I went to Berlin was with HIM and we were falling in love in the streets of the city. And a couple of months before the coffee trip my heart got broken and I was scared to face all those memories alone. K. has a history with Berlin too. Originally from Zurich, he spent 6 years there looking for answers and discovering himself. Berlin shaped him as an adult. He had moved back to Zurich a year before and hasn’t visited Berlin since then. I had a feeling he was scared it’s going to be like with the first love – he would see Berlin and fall in love again. But nevertheless he decided to be adventurous and go with me.
