I am obsessed with bikes… I’ve found Berlin as a perfect city for riding one. There is no view in Berlin without Berliner or Berlinerin on a bicycle. If you don’t see any bikers, take a closer look, at least a bike itself must be somewhere around ;)

I used to think that Amsterdam is the most busiest cycling city in Europe. However, I’ve changed my mind after this trip- Berlin is! I couldn’t miss …
