Hi sweeties! I'm back on Irish soil after a lovely weekend in one of my new fav cities - Berlin. I had heard mixed reviews of the city, so my expectations were quite low, but I am actually blown away. I loved the facts that 1) there were so many open spaces 2) there were like NO cars in the inner city 3) it felt very safe. All those stories about "gypsy thieves" I had heard were not a part of my impression of Berlin. The only thing that actually lived up to my prejudice was that the city is super hipster, but that made me feel even more at home. Both Dave and I were impressed by Berlin and already want to re-visit sooner rather than later.
I will post an update about our first day in Berlin later today or tomorrow, so stay tuned!
