    Default My First Berghain Experience

    Hey guys,
    I've just made it back from my first Berghain pilgrimage, I was there for two consecutive weeks and could not have had more of an amazing time. I wrote an article about it on my blog, trying to capture some of the incredible experiences I had.
    If you've been, or are curious about going, I'd really appreciate some comments or anything!
    Let me know what you think, thanks

    Hah it was way better than that, and much less awkward!
    (I also had to censor a good amount of stuff out of it)
    Ah man fingers crossed for your job in berlin. I'd move there in a heartbeat!

    Nice writeup. I still have yet to have my techno pilgrimage in Berlin. At least I got the Rex here in Paris

    You live in Paris and have not yet gone?! No excuses!
    And of course, Rex has the music, but Berlin has the music and everything else that should come along with it

    I know, I know. I can't justify going only for a weekend there, specifically with the high chances of not getting in that place. My attitude to music and clubbing is pure and genuine and I think it can be felt but I can't take that risk. I'd rather spend more time to enjoy the city a bit and to have a couple shots at Berghain/P-Bar.

    Now the real kicker is I have boredom issues being alone for more than a few days, not liking tourist things and being socially inapt, which can create a serious compound annoyance on holidays. I hardly take longer than a week off at a time, so going *abroad* on my own for a few days is even worse

    Damn I'm sorry to hear that Whyte... Mind sharing when you went/what happened at the door?

    Lovely read mate, really enjoyed it! One of these days I'll make it out there, sounds like the experience of a life time if you're truly into underground club culture
