since JG heard all about our cool Berlin stories, and that Berlin was the place to be from other people, we decided it was wise to make sure she sees a bit of Berlin - day trip from Frankfurt it is!
first stop was Brandenberg Tor, since it is close to Berlin HBF
it was time to depart Berlin to Rome, getting ready for hopes of a white christmas (which turns out by the end of the day I had very little hopes of)
our airberlin flight. which got delayed by an hour, and this was spent seated on the plane on the tarmac..
Last full day in Berlin - sadly its decided to go all cloudy and foggy on us :(
you cant even see the TV tower which you can normally see from most places around Berlin!
yay gonna check out checkpoint charlie today. its the crossing point (or what used to be) of East and West Berlin at Friedrichstrasse.
what it used to look like
wow after a fairly big night out - we were sorta in full swing to start the day. we left at about 10am to pick up some breakfast, and then CS and I will split up - he is going to spend the day with his friend, and I get to meet MS who is on exchange right here in Berlin!
good breakfast to start the day
so our overnight train was delayed by 60 minutes. We both thought we overslept and missed Berlin, even though we were up 30min prior to supposed arrival in Berlin. turns out it was simply late in its travels by 60 minutes despite departing on time. but not to worry. Berlin!
