Journey to Germany! (Photos Included)

The title rhymes! This is one of the small happy moments that writers have!

I arrived in Berlin after almost fifteen hours of flying from New Delhi. We had a short layover in Moscow and then we landed in Berlin. Here are some pics of the journey and my not-so-funny narrations of some of the stuff that happened along the way.

This was one of the first bird’s eye views of Delhi, in my 3.30 am flight from Indira Gandhi International Airport Terminal 3.

Delhi from the Skies

The first rays of the sun were beautiful when dawn broke. Most of the photos will have a wing in them. I thought during seat selection that it wouldn’t be so, and how wrong was I!

Good Morning sun!

It had started getting really chilly when we were over Russia, and it was proper snowing when we landed in Moscow, where my connecting flight was. When I was there, I could not connect to the airport wifi and had zero network bars on my phone to inform someone at home that I landed safely at the first stop. As an Indian kid, it is imperative to do that. Plus, since I suffer from motion sickness, this update becomes even more important.

We had a little issue with the Aeroflot change in flight schedules about 3 days before my planned departure. The initial flight from Delhi was delayed by about 3 hours which meant I would have missed my connecting flight to Berlin. I had to board an earlier flight to avoid that.

Snow-y Russia!

Billowing clouds just over Berlin. It was cloudy and overcast, which is generally the mood at that location.

Just outside Berlin airport, from where we took a taxi. Someone very special came to pick me up. 🙂

The first street in Berlin I saw.

The first beautiful tree and building that I saw.

I stayed there for two days, after which I came to where I am staying right now. The next blog post is about my time in Berlin. The next few travel-related posts will be photos and my experience. I am here for further studies, and I have my exams in 2 days for which I am procrastinating by creating these posts 😉 haha.

If you liked this kind of post, please leave a comment! They make me happy in turn. Or if you have any questions, I would love to answer them.

Travel is a new experience that can transport you out of your everyday routine to create memories with the ones you love.

Brian Chesky

Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer.

It helps you grow, transform and learn so many new things. It is enthralling to experience new things, no wonder it is synonymous with adventure and thrill too!

Do you love to travel or do you like the comfort of home more?

One Last Glance

Suddenly I whirl
For one last glimpse
But did you see?
We’ll never know, will we?

Drifters of the world
Lovers of the wild,
Once meeting somehow
Guess we’ll never know now.

Stars aligned, we shared a vow
Broken now, wonder how
How did we let go?
Think we’ll never know.

Saloni

Quote: Samih Al-Qasim

The day I’m killed,
my killer, rifling through my pockets,
will find travel tickets:
One to peace,
one to the fields and the rain,
and one
to the conscience of humankind.
Dear killer of mine, I beg you:
Do not stay and waste them.
Take them, use them.
I beg you to travel.

Samih Al-Qasim, Travel Tickets;
