Republik Berlin

Live like the Germans. Let’s talk about the weekend in Berlin before I became legal in Germany. Miraculously, the two worst planners in the world managed to meet up in another country better than meeting up in Orlando where we only live 15 minutes away each other. Our meeting point? The Brandenburger Tor: the 18th…
