  • ... admiring architecture in Leipzig. . I have long wanted to visit Leipzig, the Germany city roughly halfway between Berlin and Dresden, because it played such a significant part in reuniting the divided country at the end of the Cold War. . Back in 1987 East Germans that had applied to leave the communist land and move to the west would attend “Monday prayers” in a Leipzig church. . They offered each other support, plotted and schemed, and even started printing anti-Communist material with the Stasi hesitant to storm a church chasing the agitators. . The movement grew in late 1989 and by September or October there were Monday demonstrations being held in cities and towns right around the old East Germany. . The movement gave East Germans seeking freedom the confidence to continue protesting at the end of an era where even telling a cheesy political joke could see you interrogated by the secret police. . While I was ready marvel at history coming to life in the places the protestors gathered — St Nicholas’ Church, the Runde Ecke which was once Stasi headquarters, Leipzig marketplace — I didn’t expect to swoon over the architecture. . But this German city, which fell into such disrepair during the 28 years the Berlin Wall stood it was considered to be the GDR’s most-polluted city for a time, is home a so many elegant abodes. . Art Deco, Art Nouveau and even Belle Époque structures line the streets around Peterstrasse with the neighbourhood I strolled looking as good as the day it was built. . Leipzig reminds me of Vienna and Prague, not a dishevelled settlement in a once-tired corner of the old Soviet sector. . And with so many addresses like this one, apartment buildings that remind me of the designs favoured by those creative that were once part of Vienna’s Secessionist Movement, I wonder if the influences of Gustav Klimt and his contemporaries extended this far from the Austrian capital. . Will be needing to google that... . . . #simplytrafalgar || @trafalgartravel

  • “When I was a one year old, my father left us because he wanted to have a life with money, fun, and no worries. Something even more impactful was when I got molested by a family member. That was when my life was hit by random anxiety attacks, random negative thoughts in my head, and the overthinking about anything I do. I remember a time in biology class, when a student was talking about the lesson, and I randomly started having an anxiety attack. The teacher took me out of the class, and I remember spilling every bad memory to him, and that was when I considered a therapist because he made sure to let me know that it’s not bad to see one. I decided to dedicate my time to find a therapist, but it’s hard here in Germany because you need to go through this whole process before getting in contact. There aren’t many adults here to talk to about this kind of stuff, and it sucks. Especially, when you hear about the many students who get abused mentally, physically, and sexually. It also sucks how people don’t realize how many students here are damaged. That’s why I want to dedicate my studies to possibly becoming a social worker, mainly in schools. I believe that there aren’t many people focusing on how the students are doing mentally, but only focusing on how they are doing in marks. I want to help change the way people think, and help make sure the students feel like they can talk to someone when they need help.” [Human of Wuppertal.]
