Getting lost in Berlin and finding a friend

Getting lost in Berlin and finding a friend – Travel Story from Berlin

I arrived in Berlin after a confusing train ride and was happy to be just a few subway stops away from my hostel. When I sat down a girl came to me and pointed at my hands: „I like your nail polish“ and then at my suitcase:

Are you visiting or leaving?“.

She told me that she was from Sweden and had just arrived to Berlin after traveling the world for a year.

We talked for 20 minutes until I realized that I ended up far away from where I wanted to go – I did get on the wrong subway after all. Maybe I was lost in Berlin but had found a new friend.
