We meet again Berlin!

After leaving Roskilde Festival on early Monday morning (4am) to Copenhagen and spending a night at Henry’s place to recover, Loui and I caught an 8 hour bus to Berlin.

We had the pleasure of staying at Maike’s lovely apartment for the first day in Ostkreuz and that evening, we went down to the outdoor pubs to watch the Brazil vs Germany game whilst drinking beers. It was a fantastic match where Germany took out the game 7-1 and the atmosphere was phenomenal.

It was my third time in Berlin but as always, there is plenty to do, see and eat! We visited the East Side Gallery, walked around Tiergarten, went up the Victory Column (Siegessaule), had an amazing burger at Bürgermeister, saw the Brandenburg Gate and walked around Alexanderplatz. We saw the Berlin Wall, went to Checkpoint Charlie and Topographie des Terrors.  We went around Mitte and saw the Berliner Dom (cathedral) and the famous TV tower. We went to Markthalle and tried so many delicious dishes then met some new friends and had beers by the lakes whilst the sun was setting.

We stayed at a hotel for 2 nights and it was so well needed after the 8 days at Roskilde. We got complimentary wine and also went to the gym where we did a ABT class in German. Loui and I couldn’t stop laughing in that class!

Auf wiedersehen Berlin – it’s been fun!
