Berlin

Street ArtReliable Ryanair from Riga, Latvia to Berlin, Germany – a quick 1 hour 40 minute no-frill flight. Bill said it felt like a university outing because everyone was so young.

After the past week or so in winter fall was back in full force – greens, yellows, oranges and reds glistened outside the airplane’s window.  Teasing us with hopes of warmer weather.

We were greeted by a balmy 34 degrees.

I was anxious to get to Berlin, the capital city of the Cold War – Checkpoint Charlie, Brandenburg Gate, the Wall and the art/graffiti subculture pervasive on the East side.

When I hear “Berlin” – I hear Reagan, as if it was yesterday, saying “Gorbachov – tear down this wall” – I see, graffiti.

Bill thinks it has the most diverse new architecture of any world capital.

About Paige Shaw

Hi! I'm Paige - a freelance travel photographer. Let's go on a photo journey across the globe. The aim of my work it to show you the many layers and exquisite textures of a locality; its character, culture, people and beauty. Bitten by the wanderlust bug years ago my husband Bill and I set out to see the world. 2013 gave birth to a travel blog (www.billandpaige.com) chronicling our journeys so that curious family and friends could follow in real time. From that beginning so too a photographer was born. Honing my skills over the years I am now excited to narrate our discoveries with imagery! As you glimpse my art - join as we explore together. Be sure to throw your fashion ego out the door cuz there's no room in the carry-on luggage. Sunrise shots start at 5am. Hiking to the top for a different perspective will definitely get your blood pumping and you might even need to role up your pant legs to capture those closeups on the water…. Most of all - get ready to SMILE - it's the universal language. I’m also a wife, mother, yogi, pilgrim, burner, golfer, skier, scuba diver and expert wanderluster. “Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.” ― Pablo Picasso

    You sure captured the beauty of this place with your camera. It is probably even more beautiful actually being there… I enjoy your photos-I feel like I am there traveling the world. Keep enjoying and being happy… xoxoxo
