berlin 2016

as some of you might know I moved to berlin about 3 years ago, directly after graduating from “high-school” and my apprenticeship wouldn’t start before september 2016 so I had loads of time to explore the city i call home ever since i moved here. in those 6 months where I had nothing but free-time i went far beyond the borders of berlin’s zone a. i was also much more into urban exploring so what i did was meeting people to explore abandoned places, rooftops and places normal citizens wouldn’t go to or wouldn’t care about.

you will get a better feeling of what i mean in the photos below.

without no further due, let’s jump straight in!
