Historical Lisbon tram in Alfama, Portugal.

Tram in Alfama | Lisbon, Portugal

Who hasn’t seen any photos of a Lisbon Tram passing through the narrow streets of Alfama? I think it’s one of the popular icons in the capital of Portugal, much like the bikes are for Amsterdam.

The Bica Funicular in Lisbon on a sunny day, Portugal.

The Bica Funicular | Lisbon, Portugal

It is not only the Bica Funicular that makes this location so picturesque. The traditional yellow tram perfectly blends into the joyful homes of the Pombaline downtown of Lisbon, which dates back to 18th century. The view is accompanied by the beautiful turquoise water of the Tagus River down the street. It is definitely one of my favorite places in Lisbon!

S-Bahn metro trains in front of the Berlin Skyline at sunset

Trains | Berlin, Germany

The S-Bahn and Berlin. More of a love-hate relationship than anything else. And if one metro scene is really typical for Berlin, then it’s the trains meandering through the city center. Just as you can see them in this image; approaching the center from the eastern part of the city.

Tram passing Hurban Square (Hurbanovo námestie) in the Bratislava Old Town

Bratislava Old Town | Slovakia

Bratislava is famous for its castle and the fact that you can see it from almost everywhere in the city. This photo was taken at the Hurban Square (Hurbanovo námestie) which kind of worked as a hub for us during our stay. As the weather wasn’t our best friend, the solution could only be “Blue-Hour-Photography”.

Cables in Bucharest, Romania. Everyday street scene in Bucharest

How did you like Bucharest? | Romania

Wherever you go, there are cables. Some are hanging to the ground, some are still in place. But they really are on every single street light. Our host Radu explained us that they remain from the time when there was no real electricity network. Everyone just established their own energy connection and as of now, not much changed.

New Metro Station "Brandenburger Tor" in Berlin. The entrance to the station and its escalator.

Alles Neu | Berlin, Germany

As you may have heard, Berlin is an eternal construction site. Even better when something is finally declared open as it was with the new metro station Brandenburger Tor. Up to this point, there are only 3 stations of the new metro line U55 opened. As for the design of the new stations I was very positively surprised and am curious of the other stations that should be finished within the next ten years.
