At the beginning of the month my boyfriend whisked me away to Berlin as a birthday present - he's a good chap isn't he? Berlin has been on my list for quite some time as a complete history geek. It was everything I expected and more. I completely fell in love with the city and can't wait to say hello again. I feel like we only just touched the surface. We did all the tourist things but now I want to experience the "real" Berlin. We went on an amazing free tour on the first day which I can't reconmend highly enough. It gave us such a good starting point and really helped us figure out the key points of the city. We stayed near to the TV tower above so that was like our guiding star whenever we got lost. I can't wait to plan even more city breaks - Lisbon and Prague are next on my list.

Have you been to Berlin? If so, what was your favourite part of the city?


  1. Ahh looked awesome :) I love short city breaks, I went to Krakow a few years ago and explored the city for a few days. It's such a great way to soak up the atmosphere and I learnt quite a bit of Polish haha x
