:bulletgreen: Well hello hello! :bulletgreen:

Today I arrived back home from Berlin. Oooooh, the trip was amazing! :D

Me and my friend took the morning flight to Helsinki on Friday and arrived in Berlin in the afternoon. We checked in our hotel and since we'd whole evening free we went for a walk in the city. I got nasty blisters on my both legs which made my trip a bit difficult but somehow I managed to move around the city for next three days... ^^;

On Saturday we left to Potsdam early in the morning. That place is so beautiful!! :wow: The weather was good for the whole weekend so it was lovely to walk around the Sanssouci park and take photos. After we'd seen the Sanssouci park we went to the Brandenburgerstrasse. There were many small shops and coffee houses etc. We headed towards the St. Peter & St. Paul church and went to see the Dutch quarter. Oh, and we tasted the currywurst there! That was yummy. It's sausage with curry sauce. :D
We also checked the Potsdamer Platz and Alexanderplatz in city center, and ate in Korean restaurant in the evening. LOL, they serve huge meals! :XD:

Sunday was the concert day. We got up early because the ticket office opened at 10 o'clock and we wanted to get good seats. We were lucky because the venue for normal tickets wasn't that long so we got nice seats by coming so early. :) After getting the tickets we headed to the Potsdamer Platz to eat and see if shops were open. We also visited in Sony Center to use the free internet connection.
We took our way back to Tempodrom (=the concert hall) around 16 o'clock. Doors opened after 17.30. Everything went nicely and soon we sat on our seats and waited for JYJ to step onto the stage.

It was so exciting!! :excited: First I couldn't even believe that I was really going to see JYJ live after so many years of dreaming. I almost cried in the beginning when I started to think about it but then the music started and my mood changed drastically. :XD:
The gig was totally awesome! JYJ boys are so talented! And my dear Jaejoong... Finally I saw him! :heart: They sang 15 songs from their international and Korean albums. My favourites were Empty, Be My Girl, Jaejoong's solo I'll Protect You, Chajatta, Mission, In Heaven and Get Out.
Two of my favourite fan projects happened which was... the feeling was beyond the words! I was so proud of us fans. :aww: I'm meaning a singing along during Chajatta and a white lightstick ocean during In Heaven. The white ocean was so pretty!

It was hard to leave Tempodrom after the concert. I still hadn't realized it all. I'm still doing that process and feeling better and better every minute, hehe!

Yesterday we checked out from the hotel and went to see the Berlin Zoo + Aquarium. The zoo is a huge place so we missed some animals. My favourites were lions, a tiger, elephants, giraffes, penquins, wolves and a panda. The Aquarium was interesting to go around, too, even I don't care reptiles and insects that much. But some of the fishes were very pretty! I saw a sea horse! :D
Then we went for some more shopping. Except that I didn't buy anything anymore because my bag was already full enough. Not too heavy but full. Too small luggage... :XD: My total of shopping were a nice pair of shoes, a hat and a handbag, then some chocolate, tea etc.

I hope I'll get some kind of nice picture combination done later. Now I really need to go to bed since I haven't slept more than three hours last night because of the flying schedules. I'm feeling a bit weird already... :lmao: The trip was a total success and I really enjoyed it! I hope that JYJ had good time in Europe, too, and that they'll come back someday! I'm more than ready to go to see them again if it's possible anyhow. :D

EDIT: Here's a link to some of the pictures I took during the trip: Berlin 4.-7.11.2011.
I hope that link works!

I actually doubted it first but then I fell in love with the taste! :D I tried to make it at home too but it wasn't that delicious... ^^;

Aww hehehe, I suppose it can be like that often when there's a really awesome taste one tries to replicate/re-create. Guess you'll have to visit Germany again for it it! ;P

aww sounds like you had a wonderful time,i'm really glad to read so!:la:
now that i think of it,i've never been to a concert-probably because the idea of being in a crowd while listening heavy-metal of punk-HC music kinda scares me and i prefer listening to it from my mp3 XD but it must be SO exciting!:la:
Hanna-Riikka's avatar
Hanna-RiikkaProfessional General Artist
Yes, I did. Thank you! :D
Oh my, I wouldn't put myself in that kind of situation either if it was about HC music! :XD: I've been in Jrock concert several times but I've always stayed in the back because I'm afraid of getting hit or fainting if I was in the middle of the crowd/in the very first row where people push your back all the time... ^^;

Hanna-Riikka's avatar
Hanna-RiikkaProfessional General Artist
Good! :aww: Yes, we took the plane from Tegel and flied back to Finland. The flight back home was more "bumby" than the flight to Berlin but I wasn't too afraid because I was too tired for that... Lol!

REally? I had the total opposite thing!
The turbulence on the flight to Berlin was really much.. It shook and was bumby.. which made me very sick.. while the way back was really stable.. :D
Hanna-Riikka's avatar
Hanna-RiikkaProfessional General Artist

I was already fearing it, because the way to Berlin, it made me feel very sick.. But luckily the way back was really smooth and nice :D

Wuu, oon itekki ihan fiiliksissä ku luen tätä! 8D hienoja kuvii on, olis kans kiva päästä Berliiniin vähän pidemmäks aikaa et ehtis kattella enemmän ympärilleen. ^^
Hanna-Riikka's avatar
Hanna-RiikkaProfessional General Artist
Haha! Hyvä, hyvä! :D
Sinne ois kiva varata kyllä viikko tai pari, että ehtis rauhassa katella. Sitten ku ois vielä kunnon kamera, nii ois kuvaaminenki kivempaa. 8D Suosittelen kyllä matkustamaan sinne joskus!
Hizumi-lover's avatar
Mä meen luultavasti ens kesänä mut oon sillon siellä vaan muutaman päivän... Ei siinä oikeen ehi katella. /:

Ehtii siinä yhelle kertaa ihan mukavasti, jos vaan suunnittelee etukäteen missä käy ja mitä tekee. :) Vinkkinä: varaa hyvät kengät kävelyyn! Mää melkein tapoin jalkani, ku onnistuin hankkiin rakot molempiin jalkoihin ja sit piti kävellä kymmeniä kilometrejä niitten päällä. x)
Hizumi-lover's avatar
Mut me käydään sillon vähän kaikkialla Euroopassa ni ei ehdi jokaselle paikalle suunnitella päiväohjelmaa. 8D joo, mullaki on kokemusta näistä huonoista kengistä... jouduin vaarin hautajaisissa pitään semmosia jotka ei ees meinannu pysyy jalassa ja sit niillä piti viel pystyy käveleen semmone kauhee mäki. DX
Hanna-Riikka's avatar

Aa! Missä kaikkialla on tarkoitus käydä? :3
Lenkkarit ois parhaat kengät joka paikkaan! Harmi ettei ne istu pukukoodiin... :XD:
Hizumi-lover's avatar
En oo vielä ihan varma... Ilmeisesti ajettais Euroopan ympäri silleen et mentäis sinne Tanskan kautta, sit käytäis Saksassa, Hollannissa, Belgiassa, Luxemburgissa, Ranskassa ja ehkä Espanjassa. Sit siitä mentäis Italian ja Alppien kautta takasin ylöspäin. Tämmöstä ainaki kuulin noitten puhuvan. 8D
Lenkkarit on kyl aika pirulliset kengät... Mut eiks crocseillaki oo aika hyvä kävellä? Ei ainakaan jalat hikoilis.
Hanna-Riikka's avatar

Vaau! Kuulostaa kyllä mahtavalta roadtripiltä! :meow:
Crocsit vois olla joo!! Kevyet ja väljät kengät. :lol:
