shoe per diem, july 15, 2011 – golden victory

30 Jul

One of my (little) dreams in life since I first saw one of my favourite movies, Der Himmel über Berlin, was to climb the Siegessäule monument in Berlin. The place where angels congregate.

This year we made it up there. It was truly a golden moment in many ways – I haven’t blogged about it yet, haven’t even uploaded the photos to Flickr, but wow, just wow… – 277 plus spiral staircase steps up in order to reach the small platform just below the golden angel. Where you find a spectacular, and very windy, view over this amazing city.

Wearing shoes that matched Goldelse on top of the monument made the climb even better I think. A small victory for mankind perhaps, a great one for me.
