Berlin is a city that totally took me by surprise, albeit not the first time I visited. The first time was with friends (10 of us in total) and we had no expectations whatsoever. The second time we visited it was just the two of us, we’d seen a lot of the sights the first … Continue Reading

The next morning, I decided it probably made sense to get up a bit earlier, especially seeing as we would have to leave by mid-afternoon to catch our flight back to London and I wanted to cram in as much as possible into the morning.

We got a couple to go and walked over the bridge in … Continue Reading
