25 Years Ago. I’m not a tourist, I’m not a real traveller. I prefer to stay at home. Surely I’m missing something, right? But I don’t care. Do what you love and enjoyment will follow.
25 years ago, we drove to West Berlin, crossed the East German border and went to Magdeburg. People in Berlin began taking hammers and chisels to the Berlin wall, tearing it down piece by piece. It was cool being part of that scene.
Many people believe the iconic Trabant was one of the biggest mistakes in automobile history. Actually, I think it was a real cool car.
We bumped into Russian soldiers in the Magdeburg area and followed them to their base. My friend took some photographs before we were chased away by armed soldiers. I don’t think I’ve ever been so scared in my life as I was at that moment. Thank goodness my friend drove a fast Audi 100. For a few minutes we felt like we were real spies.
