Hey guys! So this weekend my Mom and I went to Berlin. It was pretty spontaneous as we only booked the tickets 10 days before we left. Usually when we travel we book 6+ months before, so it was nice to just be able to book something and then leave almost right away.
We had an amazing trip with only a little bit of drama and I thought I would share it with y’all.
We left Friday at 7am and got to the hotel aroun 11am I think. We spent the day shopping at Kurfürstendamm and just walked the city. We walked 16km that day and were both exhausted in the evening so we just went across the street for some dinner.
Saturday we went to Alexander Platz and got breakfast, after that we went to the Mall of Berlin. Then we went by Brandenburger Tor and walked by The Memorial to The Murdered Jews. Also a very long but exciting day.
Sunday started with a very unexpected experience. We woke up and got ready to go down for breakfast and as I opened the door and went into the hallway I noticed a man laying up against a doorframe of one of the doors further down, and a man standing in the door. I thought he was just really drunk and told my mom to look out. When she came into the hallway she asked the man standing up if his friend was okay and he said “he’s dead”. Naturally we were very shocked. Apparently they didn’t know each other and the man had just opened the door and seen the guy laying there. I ran to the reception and they called an ambulance and the police. We never found out what happened to the guy or who he was. It was a really scary experience and I can’t forget the sight of him laying there all stiff and lifeless. I’m really thinking about his family and hoping that they’ll recover from the loss of him.
After this we went to a small café called “Anna Blume” and had a delicious lunch and in the evening we packed our bags and went to bed early.
Monday we walked the city one last time and then we went home.
It was a great trip and I’m really happy that I got to spend this time with my mom now that everything is so unsure. No one knows when I’ll be leaving Denmark but it might be suddenly so it’s important to me that I get to spend this time with her.
