Here’s a photocollection of people in Berlin. These photos are unstaged, presenting the genuine street life of Berlin very much the way I saw it one random summer day in July.

I travelled Berlin the first time in 2015 and immediately fancied the Berlin-Tegel airport. The easiness of traveling onwards from there is worth mentioning . Had read a lot of positive reviews about Pergamon museum in the Berlin Museum Island and because of that I felt a little disappointed after seeing the exhibition inside the museum. I would myself recommend that museum only to people unfamiliar with the East. Otherwise the museum did not have much new or exciting to see, at least in 2015. Especially if you’ve travelled in India
Whereas Neues Museum in Berlin offered a very interesting and comprehensive view to the past of the humankind. The exhibition was in a way amazing and inspiring. It would be worth visiting there even without the famous Nefertiti, which you were not allowed to photograph.
Checkpoint Charlie in Berlin was a tiny part of our history commercialized well into a modern day use. It was used as a place to take selfies with the “soldiers” from the past. I think this place is worth seeing if you’re into photography. It is also brilliant advertisement for the Mc Donald’s restaurant right next to it. You might even wanna have a bite of a hamburger with some history alongside.
Branderburg Gate did not startle me, but the Holocaust Memorial I would recommend for photographers and those travellers interested in history. That impressive but yet modest looking memorial can make you very serious. Another similar grave sight is the Topography of Terror.
Berlin Zoo makes it easy to take a taxi to a jungle. All the monkeys, elephants and giraffes are right there in the middle of the city, with a skyscraper in the background. I would recommend this zoo experience to all the families with young kids visiting Berlin. One can get to the zoo easily with the public transport.
In the end, the Berlin TV tower (Fernsehturm) and Panoramapunkt will give you a very nice views above the whole city of Berlin.
And last but not least – Do not forget to visit the Art Market, when in Berlin.

Shore Temple is located by the sea in the East Coast of India and it is said to have been built in 700 – 728 AD. Here’s 5 reasons why you should go and see this Hindu temple by the Bay of Bengal. It has survived over 2500 years by the sea and even a tsunami –
The photographs from Mahabalipuram show you the clear blue sky on a typical hot and sunny day in Tamil Nadu. There’s a green nature surrounding the Shore Temples.
In addition to lions and Nandi, many Gods and Goddesses were also carved in the temple stones. See the images attached –

Gokarn, also written as Gokarna, is a small village in the West coast of India, in the state of Karnataka, which is a neighboring state to Goa. Gokarn is located some 145km towards South from Goa, and it is a religiously significant place for Hindus, which is why it is very common to see there pilgrims dressed in black.
You can reach Gokarn easily by train, bus or car, from Goa, but of all these 3 the busride will most likely consume most of your energy, though nothing beats the warm wind blowing through the bus windows during sunset time.
1. If you are hippy minded missing the good old days of Goa, you can get some of those hippy vibes back from Kudley Beach, Om-beach and especially Paradise Beach in Gokarn. Paradise Beach you can reach by boat and sleep overnight there in some very simple huts by the sea. Sunbathing also allowed.
2. Sunsets by the sea in Gokarn have been a way more beautiful than in many other places in India. One of the best places to enjoy sunset in Gokarn is on top of the hill between Kudley Beach and Gokarn Beach. The wind is very smooth. Just remember to return to the village before it gets too dark.
3. Gokarn will show you the real beautiful India, which is not too modern. It will also show you some incredible things as well, like a man and a woman walking on the same street without a shirt and without any problem from other people. See the attached photo if you don’t believe it.
4. The small streets of Gokarn will give you an idea of the real life of dedicated Hindus.
5. Restaurants in Gokarn are often very spicy for the Western tongue, but one small cafe there used to make really fabulous uttapams. That taste could make the customer come back all the way from Finland. Don’t know if that place exists anymore, but at least in Om Beach there’s one very nice restaurant, namely Namaste Cafe.

2. Basilica of Bom Jesus keeps the grave of St. Francis Xavier and through the glass cover you can see the remains of his body and pay respect. St. Francis Xavier was a Roman Catholic missionary whose 500th birthday was celebrated in 2006, from the time of which these photographs are also from.
3. Old Goa in India is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
4. The nature and trees in Old Goa are beautiful. You can also see lot of Portuguese-style architecture and one Mahatma Gandhi statue there.

Roads high in Himalaya mountains, India
Narrow roads in India, high in the mountains, can make you feel dizzy, like in the video attached, but here’s 5 reasons to go to Mussoorie anyway –
1. If you want to experience the Himalayan mountains in India, then Mussoorie in Uttarakhand is the first hillstation to go, nearest to Delhi.
2. Narrow roads by the hillside will give you plenty of tension and excitement with real highs, no matter what is your vehicle.
3. In the spring and during the monsoon, a hillstation in India is a cool place to be, when the heat is next to unbearable elsewhere in India.
4. Sunset behind the mountains is really awesome.
5. Morning and sunrise behind the fog will leave you speachless.
