Big Berlin

After missing out on seeing a friend in Berlin (he was there for 1.5 years) I finally made it to this big city. We left Bruges and drove through Holland but I’m not sure that it really counts as going to another country as we didn’t stop anywhere and after about 8 hours of driving we arrived in Berlin. We dropped off our bags and hit the streets. It’s a big place and we needed to eat so we stopped at an Italian restaurant and ended up staying there for dinner and drinking…first night over. Day 2 in Berlin consisted of lots of walking. This is a big city and as we were only there for a very short time, we decided to do the super tourist thing and jumped on a bus that did a loop of the city and took us to most of the main touristic sites. It was a bit difficult to take decent photos as I was in a bus, but I did my best. I managed to eat currywurst and pretzels as well as trying a local kebab (someone told me to) which is pretty much like most other kebabs I have had before and I ate donuts and drank some beers, it’s a hard life. It is a bit difficult after being somewhere like Bruges that is small and magical to then go to Berlin which is huge and well, less magical. It still has amazing architecture and a huge assortment of food and clothes shop and other things, but it didn’t grab me as much as other places I have been, but it was still cool to see it though and it’s another place to cross off my list. I’m sure it’d be very different having a local to show you around (as usual) but for now, I’m happy to go somewhere different in Germany next time. I think the older I get the more I prefer smaller places where it’s easier to walk around without needing to use public transport. Next stop is in Poland and I look forward to that as I know nothing about it and I’m up for something completely different.

    I feel like I tavel with you my friends ! Bruges was certainly a jewel , Berlin is bigger and less surprising (I don’t know if my english is ok) . I think Poland will be amazing and people there are very kind , all the Polish people I know are really nice .
