Beasties in Berlin

Explorer Beastie

At last! Explorer Beastie has finally had a chance to venture off this windblown, rain-soaked island on the edge of Europe and see the wider world for the first time! As you can see, I didn’t let him go unprepared – he got a handy guidebook to help him find his way around.

First stop – a look at the city from the top of the Fernsehturm (TV Tower) in Alexanderplatz!

We also had a photo opportunity once we got back on the ground… and then Explorer Beastie made friends with Ampelmann, the “pedestrian crossing guy” unique to eastern Germany.

And that was just on our first day. Unfortunately, these are the only photos from the trip that survived. I’m not sure whether to lay the blame at the feet of a temperamental memory card or a faulty reader, but somewhere between camera and computer everything was lost and it’s only thanks to my hard-working, tech-savvy boyfriend that I have any pictures at all! Oh well, I suppose we’ll just have to go back…

  1. So very cool! Love the pic with the green man, haha – Explorer Beastie just chillin. Oh man, technology gremlins! But what can you do? Hooray for tech-savvy boyfriend. (Very good excuse to go back tho – can’t have Beastie adventures left unfinished…) 😀

  2. Hope Explorer Beastie enjoyed his travels, here’s to many more, shame the bad memory card ate the rest of your pics that’s jealousy for you I guess 🙂
