Seeing the sights (Berlin Day 5)

My attempt at taking a selfie with my SLR... not that easy! Still need practising.

Schloss Charlottenburg (Berlin Day 4)

On Tuesday, I visited Charlottenburg Palace. I didn't take any photos inside but with hindsight, I should have purchased a photo pass. Some rooms were quite impressive.

Chocolate heaven (Berlin Day 3)

Monday was a cold and rainy day. I briefly popped into Galeries Lafayette, which is just a stone's throw away from my hotel.

Tired but inspired (Berlin Day 2)

After the intense drinking night out with my friend D, I only managed to get up at about 11 am the next morning. We had arranged to meet for brunch and the first one to be up should contact the other via sms. Needless to say, D was awake before me! Still in a daze, we went to one of the first places that seemed decent: a Turkish kebab shop (I'm losing count of all the kebabs I've already had this year). On our way we walked past Christian Ulmen, a German actor.

Nice surprise (Berlin Day 1)

I've been to Berlin before but only for a weekend. I have always felt that I needed to come back for longer and therefore I booked this seven day trip.

For once I got to take a flight at a humane time: 11 am. Everything went according to plan and I got to my hotel at around 1 pm. I'm very happy with the location, it's near the Brandenburger Tor on Unter den Linden / Friedrichstrasse. Even though I didn't have to get up too early, I was really tired and slept for three hours.
