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.
U-Bahn. Or maybe it was S-Bahn. The distinction remains confusing.
We spend quite some time in the Museum at Checkpoint Charlie.
Seriously? A museum dedicated to currywurst. We gave it a miss.
We had a long Italian lunch, under a red umbrella. And finished it off with a lemon sorbet.
Esplanade – an old hotel, with a glass front. Above are some new appartments, which are held up by an ingenious bridge construction.
The Sony Centre
Playing around with the 3D tv.
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.
