As a news reporter, there’s no better feeling than when a story just writes itself—this happened to me on my trip to Germany, while I was walking through the streets of Berlin on vacation.

So, there I was leaving the German metro, also known as the U-Bahn, and while I was standing on the escalator the well-known smell of burning terpenes flooded my nostrils.
