Hamburg – The Hanseatic harbor city!

My wintry wandering this year took me to a city, not primarily of painters, poets or prophets but of businesses, industries, and traders. I tried to feel the pulse of the city and ended up with happy vibes brimming with the beauty of a different kind. History draped houses, canals, lakes, and a large port give this city a unique character that settles comfortably into one’s memory and steps forth like old pals at the mention of Hamburg, the Hanseatic harbor city.

The Festival of Lights in Berlin, Germany!

Around 11 am, my jet-lagged eyes saw the October morning brimming with autumnal lights for the first time in Berlin. Summer had trickled into autumn, unlike California, from where I boarded the flight two days back. I treated myself with a cup of coffee and sat down to peep into the city from my hotel window. It almost felt like a Facebook feed because of its continuously changing scenes. Then I decided to open the window a little and instantly the city came alive. The aroma from the Pizza shop, the sound of laughter and conversations, and the people made it real and intimate, unlike the virtual world. The open streets that I could see from above have an allure that’s hard to avoid. Therefore, without wasting much time, I quickly planned to see the ongoing Festival of Lights in Berlin, Germany and walk the history-filled roads of Berlin.

“The Ultimate Driving Machine” – The BMW Museum in Munich, Germany!

The Berlin Wall

The Berlin Wall!

Today 9th November, 2019 marks the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall – which endured as the symbol of conflict between the Communist and non-Communist worlds for almost thirty long years! Freedom was the triumphant winner on 9th November, 1989 (twenty five years back) with the fall of the wall. This calls for celebration and jubilation since freedom is the most valuable treasure in personal, societal, political or in economical fronts.

Dachau Concentration Camp.

Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site (Germany)

One of my biggest weaknesses is travelling. It enriches me. On one hand, the wonderful nature in Norway,  Switzerland , France and Denmark etc instills me with peace, inspiring places like Nobel Museum in Stockholm , CERN Switzerland , The Neils Bohr Institute in Copenhagen and The Freud Museum in Vienna etc inspires me and on the other hand some places take away words from my pen, takes away thoughts from my mind and senses from within.

“The Best or Nothing” – The Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart, Germany!

In my adolescence, I used to dream about a romantic date where I would be inside a Mercedes Benz car and heading towards the sea with the windows wide open and the gushing air would refresh both of us along with some rain droplets. A lovely melodious and romantic song in the car would heighten passions in the dark starlit night!! Well, whether my dream date became a reality or not, let me keep it a secret. But to my surprise, I got an opportunity to visit the Mercedes Benz Museum a few days back. I was thrilled and anxious to know more about my dream car company when I reached there. I must acknowledge that I used to know very little about Mercedes-Benz before the visit.
