Our first day is underway as the Typo Berlin conference begins. The group finally gets some rest as we prepare for the weekend. First things first, we must stop at a local grocery chain to stock up on candy, Haribo gummies, chocolate, and other German goodies for our trip as well as gifts for our friends at home. We also decided to do a few last minute tourist adventures, like visiting the Dom church And taking some fantastic selfies, or “groupies” as we like to call them.
we also had the good news of hearing that the train strike was postponed, so we were able to get all the tickets we needed for the rest of our trip. we ventured to the train station to finalize our travel plans. The group also discovered the wonders of Germany’s popular Curry Wurst, our new favorite thing!
Finally, it was time for Typo Berlin to begin. After a warm welcome and lots of great freebie swag, the conference was in full swing. Each of us saw many inspiring speakers and had our share of diverse perspectives. There was a lot to take in, but we received a taste of what Typo Berlin is all about.
The first day is over and we decided to enjoy a very German dinner with Schnitzels on an outdoor patio. Our intro to the conference was a success filled with much insight, and we are excited to learn and experience more as the conference continues. We can’t wait to see what’s next!
Disclaimer: this group hasn’t quite figured out the art of the selfie/groupie just yet…
