I have arrived in Berlin, to glorious sunshine. This is the first step on a trip that will take me all over Eastern Europe – from Poland to Croatia and beyond. I’ve deliberately left the itinerary mostly unplanned, so that I can adapt as I go. One of the thrills of travelling like this is being able to wake up in the morning and say, ‘which country shall I visit today?’
That’s for later, though. For now, I’m off to explore Berlin.
