A birthday trip to the German capital.
Monday morning we found a lovely Bagel place for breakfast (they had jalepeno bagels which were amazing) in a really fancy shopping centre. Just look at those Christmas decorations! After our breakfast, which was more like brunch, we went to see Checkpoint Charlie and visit a vintage car place, ‘Classic Remise’ which was so cool. I hadn’t really planned a strict day for us (which was probably a good thing as we got a bit lost finding Checkpoint Charlie, despite it being less than a mile from our hotel!)
It was great to walk around and see such a range of cars that you would never see in one place anywhere else, from Ferraris to a classic Dodge Challenger, Mustangs, you name it they probably had it. Although there was a distinct lack of VWs which was a shame since we both wanted to see them.
We visited two markets on Monday, one at Alexanderplatz where I experienced my first real German Bratwurst and a Crepe and boy were they good! Then Gendarmenmarkt where I tried Glühwein (mulled wine) for the first time too and it was lovely. I also took the mug it came in, as a little memento of our visit. If there’s one thing I’ll miss about Berlin (other than the atmosphere and the sights) it’s the food!
If you want to see more photos from my trip to Berlin look out for parts 2 and 3. I’m also uploading vlogs for my trip on Lives Online. You can see the first one here.
Great photos – I would love to visit Berlin x
