Once upon a time (some 30 years ago), you had to wait up to 18 years for such a car – usually, the East-Germans ordered one after having given birth to a child. The Trabant was the only affordable car in East-Germany and was a super robust vehicle, which still runs today to thousands.
The other day, I was driving with my girlfriend through Berlin Köpenick. Suddenly, this old tram crossed my way and I was able to capture this cool shot. I used such a tram myself back in the day when I was a kid.
Most people tend to think, that these trams were built in the 50s and 60s, but actually their origin is far older – the base is actually from the 1920s. These trams were built since the East-Berlin public transportation authority was not able to buy enough new trams back then.
So, everytime I see one of these, I actually see something originally built nearly hundred years ago.

Last week, my family and I visited the Deutsche Technikmuseum in Berlin, a very interesting place. Here you can virtually stroll through history, you can experience trains, planes, cars, ships as well as photography or jewellery.

I uploaded many images into a gallery. Some of these pictures were already featured in my blog or my instagram account, most of them are not and perhaps won’t ever be.
