Manfred, my friend from the castle, recommended that I use http://www.meinfernbus.de to get from Halle-Saale to Berlin as opposed to the train, and I am glad I took his advice!! It was only 8€ and was seamless.
I booked the ticket online, and got one of these:
There was also wifi for free, and a good menu – but the journey was only 2 hours so before I knew it, I was in Berlin.

It was sad to leave behind my castle family. Ingrid, Mercedes, Javin, Jim, Mika, and Juta.
Next chapter of my travels involve a quick trip to Milan to sort out paperwork, and then a week in Berlin with a friend from Sydney days, who was modeling in Sydney and shared a house with me…and now she lives in Neukölln, next to Kreuzberg, a very hip and trendy area of Berlin.
With love, from Josephine.
