Sneaks Berlin Weekend in Pies

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone…hopefully the thread title should be descriptive enough to let you know whats going on….

 

I went to Berlin recently for a long weekend. First time there since I was 17 and was nothing like I remembered. Anyhow, here’s some shots from that very very cold weekend…

 

This you tube link is to a song that I was bumping a lot, and is very suited.

 

So here we go…complete with straight to the point commentary ala Sneak.

 

4am Saturday and its so early I cant focus properly.

Airport breakfasts…

I was proper organised for this trip, note: folder of information and important documents, croissants, something to read and protective cover for shiny new phone.

Hello.

24781_520701665334_280300183_1151056_1316688_n.jpg

 

Sitting on a bus from terminal to plane. Still too early to take decent flicks.

What was essentially a giant, orange, cattle pen.

24781_520701570524_280300183_1151037_7138873_n.jpg

 

I always find these photo’s pretty inspiring…what with the clouds and all.

Arrival in Berlin

24781_520701610444_280300183_1151045_3956566_n.jpg

 

Get the subway to the hotel and from there first port of call is Overkill Graffiti shop. What really surprised me was how ghetto looking Berlin is. I mean, shit I was staying in a 4* hotel which was slap bang in between bombed out vacant lots and pretty grim looking tower blocks. Plus, the graffiti! Fuck…its everywhere…Maybe its coming from the city with the most CCTV camera’s in the world but I couldn’t believe the amount of full on throwups / pieces / rooftops / rollers / tags on the streets. This is a selection of what I saw on my walk to the graff shop.

Once we got the obligatory visit to the graff shop out the way, we stumbled on the “East Side Gallery”, which from what I could make out was one of the few stretches of the original Berlin wall left and it had been turned into a open air art gallery…

Pretty cool, original bit of wall with original bit of graffiti on it..

 

24781_520701944774_280300183_1151102_8212694_n.jpg

 

More graffiti…

 

24781_520702259144_280300183_1151146_4859664_n.jpg

 

More ghetto-y-ness.

It was absolutely freezing throughout the entire weekend, and we were feeling it so popped in to a shopping centre. Turns out German ones look the same as Brit ones.

 

24781_520702069524_280300183_1151109_5095770_n.jpg

 

The first of many. Those who see my Days In Pies pics will recognise these shots hahaha

Indulge in a bit of daylight, street bombing…well I was on holiday.

Anyway I can also report back that the new German Montana Black cans are quite nice.

 

24781_520702209244_280300183_1151136_7682733_n.jpg

 

Back at the hotel and I attempt to make white my trainers. They were box fresh when I stepped off the plane and within hours were covered in crap.

 

24781_520702199264_280300183_1151134_3412306_n.jpg

 

My companion has a coffee to wake up. Not pictured, my beer.

 

24781_520702184294_280300183_1151131_7589937_n.jpg

 

Head out and about again. Stumble upon hemp museum and check it out…

Not sure what this building is but I took a flick anyway

 

24781_520702124414_280300183_1151119_8259048_n.jpg

 

Later on in the evening head out for some food

Interesting deer meat dish but not what I was feeling.

 

24781_520702154354_280300183_1151125_6295669_n.jpg

 

Shared antipasta platter sort of thing as starters.

Bonus flick for this section.

Doing drunken street dubs I asked my friend to take a flick of me in front of the piece. We got chased and she managed to snap this off as I sprinted off…

Wanted to use up what paint I had at one of Berlins HOF’s.

Hardcore actionzzzz shot, taken shortly before my “Pissed off / Lacking arrows / Fucking freezing /

not finished / blocked caps / impatient lady friend / more excuses / contemplating giving up“ moment..

Found an American style burger bar / restaurant called The Bird. Was really nice and warm, served good food and had good beer. Fit waitress too…

Hello again. This time wrapped up a lot warmer but not quite warm enough.

 

24781_520702628404_280300183_1151213_3924638_n.jpg

 

The end result of 2 things: a) I cant skip when pissed, and b) pavements are unforgiving.

More late night drinking. Lots of shots, so forgive the blurriness, but just think at least your seeing it through the same eyes I was at the time.

Woke up the next morning with the worst hangover ever.

 

Even forcing a cup of tea down my neck was a hard task

 

24781_520702663334_280300183_1151220_4303171_n.jpg

 

This might have been a church of some sort, but I was too hungover to care.

Brandenberg Gate

Holocaust memorial…apparently the anti graffiti paint used on the stones was made by a sister company of the people who made the gas used in the chambers on the Jews. Caused an uproar apparently.
