Berlin: cosy and green

The fabulous thing about Malpensa is that you are only 60 minutes far from Berlin! Bliss!

Landing at Schoenefeld on a friday night is so confidential. The airport is asleep, almost silent. Crossing the tarmac on foot and taking in the temperature of the air sets immediately a human, non-airport atmosphere. I savour the experience…who knows how it will be in 2011 when the Willy Brandt airport will open. Better? More Munchen-like? Different.

45 minutes on the domestic U7 line, chatting with a couple discovering Berlin for the very first time, and I am moving silently my Rimowa under the chestnut trees in Schoneberg.

Everything is ok at home. No flash floods in the kitchen, no bills in the mailbox. Good. I retrieve my slippers and my crisp linen and I am at my favourite hotel in the world!

The silence has a special texture in Berlin. This time of the year it is embued with chestnut flowers aroma and Spazierengang steps on the road mixed with conversation.

From the  balcony I can see people enjoying the night’s balmy air on the Rathaus Schoneberg bridge. Three days of holiday in Berlin in between Milano and Amsterdam busy schedules. I’m happy to be back Unter den Linden right when the linden trees blossom.
