  • I am on a fast train heading from Munich in the south of Germany to Berlin, the new capital.

  • It's a six hour trip, give or take

  • so I have enough time to look out of the windows and contemplate.

  • It does not take too long to leave Munich behind and soon after, farmland after farmland appear.

  • The thought of flying came to me the longer the journey took

  • and I decided my next trip, I will be on the plane.

  • For now

  • I was happy to finally arrive.

  • If you are used to traditional German cities like myself,

  • you will find Berlin very different.

  • In fact, if you ask me about Berlin, I would describe it as cosmopolitan

  • diverse, and not typical German at all.

  • One of the main tourist attractions here is the Berlin Wall.

  • It stretches quite a bit and is considered a major landmark in the recent German politics.

  • There's always something new here to discover;

  • unlike other German cities, the diversity here is apparent.

  • As the capital city of Germany,

  • politics is a focal point

  • and wherever you look, you'll see a little bit of it.

  • Berlin is full of history.

I am on a fast train heading from Munich in the south of Germany to Berlin, the new capital.
