Bye Bye Berlin

Berlin was great, but it was only the first stop on our Euro-TripThis meant that we eventually had to leave.  I really had a great time in Berlin – there was so much to see, so much to do, so much marzipan and chocolate to eat…  Every time I think about this trip I think about how much I want to go back someday.

My sister and I stayed at A&O in Mitte (the hotel part, not the hostel part), which was pretty cheap.  We had our own room with 2 twin beds and private bathroom.  We were a couple blocks away from the subway and a local shopping area. 

I drooled at boots in the window of a nearby store, found way too much enjoyment in the colourful sushi wrappers at Papa No, purchased a Batman comic in German, ate way too many pastries at the nearby bakery, and ordered at a restaurant just because they used chinese-style take-out containers.

We watched German dubs of “The Nanny” and “Mythbusters” at night.  I grew accustomed to room-temperature cola & orange fanta.  Nutella snacks were everywhere.

However you say it, I had a good time in Berlin.  The only thing that could tear me away was the promise of other exciting cities to visit and the call of first-class seating on our train to Vienna. 

Yeah, that’s right.  First-class.

Next stop – Vienna.
