Berlin

It seems that I have a knack for only seeing my family in other countries these days. Dad had to Copenhagen this week for business, so what better reason to then meet up in Berlin?

We had a pretty lazy weekend, especially since it was very hot, and spent as much time just catching up, as being tourists.

Right opposite our hotel – an official Book Crossing zone.  I couldn’t miss the opportunity to send off the book I picked up at the airport to a new home.

Since we didn’t have so much time on Sunday, we decided to take an open topped bus tour, and get a better idea of the rest of the city.
