Berlin Brandenburg Airport – BER

It is time to talk about the positive sides of the new, and now only, airport of the Germanys capital city. My musings while traveling through this airport triggered this new blog's creation. Arriving at the airport when trying to catch a plane or arriving at the airport on my return flights made me wonder... Continue Reading →


A go-around is an aborted landing of an aircraft. This can happen while still in the air or after touch-down. I had the chance to be part of multiple go-arounds, and I really like it.

The Futurium describes itself as "Futurium is a House of Futures. Here, everything revolves around the question: how do we want to live?" Naturally, you visit such a place with high expectations. To cut the story short, the Futurium does not meet the self-claimed goal. I visited the Futurium in October 2021 and was more... Continue Reading →

BER and Special Situations

Today’s travel from BER to DUS started with some excitement. After leaving the FEX train and using the escalators up to the departures level I saw crowds of people and a vast presence of Police personal.
