In one of those great moments when an online acquaintance suddenly appears in front of you offline, I was thrilled last week to meet the person who sent me this bit of the Berlin Wall.
It was part of a promotion for Visit Berlin a few years ago; if you sent a Twitter DM (Direct Message) with your address, they’d mail you a little piece of history.
At the TBEX travel blogging conference this month in Colorado, I was chatting with a nice woman in the breakfast line when she realized that I was one of the people she’d sent the Wall item to….she was Kirsten Schmidt with Visit Berlin.
We both squealed like schoolgirls!
Online relationships don’t replace offline ones – they enhance them.
