Berlin Recap

20 Dec

So I am back at home after a lovely few days in Berlin.

Visiting Germany at Christmas has been a dream of mine ever since I went to Berlin in the summer a few years ago – I don’t know why (at least I didn’t) but I was obsessed with the idea of cute Christmas markets and mulled wine and sausages! Haha, and what a good obsession that turned out to be!

Here are a few pics… (excuse the mobile phone quality!)

German Beer

Xmas market

Mulled wine

I had a wonderful time – it sounds cheesy but it was everything I expected, and more. I think we found the right balance between doing the tourist things (Abi had never visited Berlin before), soaking up the Christmas atmosphere, and just enjoying a relaxing break.

And another item ticked off my 101 in1,001 list!

    Wow that is cool. Finding the balance between tourist and christmas has got to be relaxing. And getting local beer while in Germany is a dream of mine. Very cool!

    I love Berlin, glad you had such a great time! I’ve never been at Christmas, but it looks amazing – I had to make do with the German market in Birmingham this year! Merry Christmas 🙂

    Looks like you girls had a blast! I’m so darn jealous that you live so close to Europe. I wish I could do a “few days” in Berlin! lol
