In April, Rachel and I headed off with Mum to Berlin for a long weekend to celebrate her 60th. Mum, like me, spent a year living in Germany in the 1970s and visited Berlin with some friends during that year. She hasn’t been back since, and of course, since then, reunification happened! She’s still got the photos from that trip and so, for a bit of fun, I thought we’d try and visit the exact spots where she took them and line up the old photos so they’d be framed by their modern surroundings.
I can’t think of a better place to try this than Berlin, as it’s changed so much, and seems to still be constantly changing. I always enjoy visiting, and I’m heading back there in a couple of weeks with work!
