Sept 21 – Hmmm, now what?

After seeing the Brandenburg Gate and the Reichstag innumerable times, we had to go back to the guidebook to see what areas we hadn’t hit in Berlin. As we were looking through, it looked like it would be Alexanderplatz. So we started out at our favorite U-Bahn Station – Stadtmitte. This was great since it … Continue reading

Sorry for being a bit late with these pictures. Yesterday was a lazy evening after loads of exploring.

We made it to Berlin

Well, 24 hours after we took off on our first flight we are sitting in the Executive Lounge of the Hilton Berlin! The flights were uneventful which is always a good thing.
