With every new mile you cover across geographies, you often get into conversations with people sharing the same vision of travelling as yours - with lots of queries generated from curious minds directed at you. I must admit that most I come across are usually quite challenging and complicated to qualify for a simple answer, like "I really love to travel but there are these "xyz" reasons due to which I cannot...what should I do?". These usually lead into conversations extending hours at stretch.
But then every once in a while a question comes along which your heart knows the answer to, so much so that the answer is already on the tip of your tongue before you could give it a second thought. So when anybody asks me for that one destination that they should not leave out of their European itinerary, my mind always goes into an autopilot mode - revisiting all the happy memories and cheerful pictures painted by jovial experiences from probably the most vibrant cities in Europe. So if you are currently preparing your European itinerary, you are committing a cardinal sin if Berlin is still not on your list!!
