Or, like I tried for the first time , getting naked in public! Hi Adam, im in berlin and Today o looked for a sauna bath and the only one i found was closed, tomorrow Ill try to go to tiergarten and i want to know the spot on there i can do it, bcause the park is huge! Otherwise congrats on taking the plunge! Everyone else in the spa was naked and no one seemed to care. Traveling for so long and to so many new places has certainly transformed me. So feeling fresh off my nude spa experience, I took my bike and found a nice little corner in Tiergarten to disrobe. See all those pale white folks sitting in the open lawn? I remember reading about this before though. German culture as a whole has no problem with nudity.
Funny to hear about the sauna culture in Germany, I thought it was only a crazy Finnish thing. Interesting to read about your experience — mostly interesting due to how, well, uninteresting it is! I always thought it was a very Scandinavian thing, but was surprised to learn about it in Germany myself. Travel has done some tremendous things to my life. Why did I get naked in Berlin? New things as simple as trying yoga for the first time or eating Sudanese food.
But interesting in how such a thing that would be a big deal in other countries read, our home countries is just, well, life in Germany. I was only there for a few days, and I wish I knew! Looking forward to reading more of your articles! It continues to push me to try new things—which keeps my life exciting and interesting. I love hearing about getting out of your comfort zone! Good for you for going one step beyond normal travelers to fit in with the locals! My boyfriend and I had our first naked in public experience at Burning Man festival. Oh man — I know about the crazy Finnish nudity culture, too. There were probably a few sketchy people around, but I was focused on reading my book and trying to look as sexy as possible without attracting any attention. Im from Brasil and Ill stay in berlin just for 2 days.
So that concludes my first naked experience in Berlin. Not over it enough to frolic naked around the spa, but enough that I was comfortable. And yes: I used sunscreen! Hope u can go with me. .
Nudity in the sauna is not about sex, but about relaxing and health. So after maybe 30 seconds of initial worry I was quickly over it. . .
