We've narrowly escaped our previous destinies. My partner of many years, Katrinka, and I just got married. We quit our jobs, packed up and left our home of beautiful Victoria BC Canada... We got two cheap tickets to Berlin ($599 CAN). It's a suitable starting point for us as we plan to wander throughout Eastern Europe towards Turkey.

Other than the usual clothing items, I'm carting along one of my mandolins. My hopes are to have as many experiences interacting with people as I can. Hopefully these people and experiences will out number the various 'sites' to see along the way. Katrinka too is an artist, she has sketch-pads, pencils and pastels in tote.

When we arrived in Berlin, we were struck by two things. The price of our hostel-beds (bunk beds), and how jet-lagged we felt in the heat.
