I promise I’ll stop blabbing about my trip soon. We’ve only got two more cities to conquer and then we’ll be back to the usual programming….
Berlin was the fourth stop in my European excursion and after my love affair with Prague I didn’t have too high of hopes for the city. I thought it would be ‘neat,’ at best and I was way off! This city is amazing. There are so many things to see and do and two and a half days was just enough time to scrape the surface. Being one of the more urban cities we visited I was intrigued by the juxtaposition of old and new and the people that inhabit this place. Every structure was a nod to times past but was filled with modern ideas and, in many cases, cement architecture. The image above (bottom right) shows what I mean. You’d look up and see an old steeple next to a Communist television tower. It was great. Having a bit of a German history buff by my side was helpful as well (what up, Red Head).
Overall, I high recommend Berlin if you’re heading to Europe. It was a great pit stop and I would have loved to stay longer. Unfortunately, though, our time ran out and we had a train to catch for Amsterdam. From there things started to unravel a bit. I’ll explain more soon… Hope you can handle the suspense!
