Happy hump day! That’s Wednesday to you who aren’t familiar with the term.. and it’s sunny!
I am totally solar powered and on a constant high at the moment – it’s nearly Easter and nearly the end of uni, phew!
Here’s a sunny film to start the day. I’d like to be on this beach please, not in a big city but at least the sunshine has bleached out the Brummie Grey.
I made this piece from more found 8mm footage and I hope you like it. Enjoy this beautiful week of pretend summer time!
Back to June and my month-long Eurotrip…
We were blessed with brilliant sunshine every single day in Berlin and after four days of intense history, art and sightseeing we thought we deserved a little beach break so we headed an hour west of central Berlin to little Wannsee. Wannsee boasts long white beaches and shallow fresh waters – which had been nicely warmed by the afternoon sun by the time we arrived.
And how cute are the handy fold-up seats!? Definitely getting my hands on one of those for the post-uni house.
We also found ‘city beaches’ dotted across each of the cities we visited, but the best of them were in Berlin as they faced the Spree. We stopped for a lunchtime cocktail at one next to the East Side Gallery – sitting on deckchairs with sand between our toes with our backs to the Berlin wall and looking down at the river, nice but strange! Wish we’d remembered our bikinis as there was a pool too!
