Our second stop in Europe was in Berlin, Germany!
Out of all places I have visited, I have to say that Berlin was filled with the most culture. From being able to drink beers on the street, to the bratwurst, the super exclusive underground clubs, to the music, Berlin has definitely made my top 3 favorite places I’ve visited list.
So if you don’t know yet, I am currently on a book signing tour for JJ’s & RJ’s book ‘A Thing of Beauty’ alongside my boys Jake Bass and Ling-Ling Karter, and our second out of the 3 countries to take over was Germany! I spent the first night reuniting with 2 of my good german friends that I had met about a year ago while they did an Au Pair program in the city. Seriously it’s incredible that my job as Max Ryder allows me opportunities such as being able to make and visit friends all around the world, and I’m extremely lucky. I sometimes forget that I’m not living the life of a normal 21 year old and sometimes I need to take a second and just take it all in.
So while here, we had the opportunity to team up with Berlin’s clothing line Barcode and mega-gay-super-store Bruno’s, (in which is owned by the publishing company of the book), to do an in store meet-and-greet and book signing! Let me just say that it was insane and I was pretty surprised of the turn out. This was also the first appearance/event that I got to do while wearing clothes haha so it was a great transition for me. We had fans from mothers w/ babies, to teenage boys, to even some that drove 5 hours to come out which is crazy! The fans are so supportive and they are the reason that kept me going for as long as I did. I even got to meet the boys who made the German remake of Roadstrip which was so funny! I started off the night a little jet-lagged, but once I noticed the cooler with endless free beers I seemed to loosen up ( ;
