I’m not entirely happy with the vlog today. Hopefully it isn’t boring. Something that ISN’T boring though, is this city. Everyone says how amazing Berlin is, and yeah – it’s pretty amazing.
In the video I talk about my day with Matt, the “well fit” gardener from Brighton, giving my number to a barista which lead to being taken around town with a group of crazy-fun Danish girls.
The hostel I’m in is nice. It’s pretty small (about 20 guests), which is cool cause we’ve been going out together. I had such a nice welcome though! When I checked in, a few of the guests were opening a bottle of bubbly, and by the time I’d put my stuff down, they’d poured me a glass as well – sweet! Also, there was a HOT(!) Israeli guy who said “Just when I leave, a hot Australian boy turns up!” *blush*… I woke the next morning to find him leaving me a love letter with his digits and email address just in case I visit Tel Aviv – score!
Anyway, the hostel is pretty cliche though (remember, it’s gay). Like, you have to pick your time to shower carefully, cause having a shower could turn into much more than you bargained for (which could be a good OR a bad thing – i.e. with the cute muscle-mary German ranga (good), or the hung Polish couple (not bad), or the older tall Danish guy (bad)). Which leads me to another thing – the gay clubs here are NOT JUST gay clubs haha… Like, what looks like a normal dance bar turns into something else behind a few doors and down a corridor or two… *coughcough* darkroomsandporn *coughcough*.
OH – and another thing – I’ve heard Empire of the Sun here THREE TIMES in gay bars. How amazing is that!? You can probably guess I totally peak when that happens…
Also – a lot of people have been thinking I’m German – until I open my mouth. Must be the blue eyes and the fair complexion… I made a joke about being “Hitler’s dream child” the other day. Probably best not to. OH – speaking of getting in trouble, they do uniforms over here REALLY well. Everyone in a uniform looks hot.
