My first night in Berlin was … interesting, due in large part to my couchsurfing experience. Fortunately, along the first of many walks (I spent two days basically walking the city, exploring the underground Berlin art and more), I came across the historic church,  Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church.

It stood before me, against the Berlin night sky, bruised and battered, but alive. Originally built in the 1890s, it was damaged during a bombing raid in 1943. Today, the splintered spire still stands, while the ground floor is now a memorial hall. I’m pretty sure this photo is the moment I fell in love with Berlin.
