Reading from China? This travel report contains YouTube videos, which can only be viewed with a VPN! April 2019.

April 2013. I remember Berlin having a thriving street art scene, with murals, paintings and graffiti literally everywhere. A lot of this stuff you’ll discover naturally on buildings, bridges, doors, windows, tunnels, rubbish bins… you name it. There are also a handful of art zones, many of them delightfully under the radar back when I […]
