    Nachmittags ging es ins Restaurant auf dem Fernsehturm. Dort gab es Kaffee und Kuchen - ausgerechnet Käsekuchen -. Das Lokal dreht sich und man hat eine tolle Aussicht auf Berlin. Abends ging es zum Bufettessen ins Hotel Martim. Danach fuhr die Hälfte zur Philharmonie und der Rest zum Hotel. Zu 5 haben wir uns in der Bar getroffen, Cocktail getrunken und viel gelacht. So schnell vergingen die Tage in Berlin.Read more

    Berlin - Exploring Alexanderplatz

    September 19, 2015 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    I had a glorious sleep in on my first full day in Berlin, and didn't want to do a walking tour yet because Gyurme would arrive the next day and would also want to go, so I decided to explore the shopping area called Alexanderplatz.

    It's a large area with open plazas between shops and food stalls, and a big indoor mall at one end. It also has some interesting fountains and sculptures like this huge clock that shows the time in cities around the world.
    It's also the home of the TV Tower, the tallest structure in Germany.

    I found amusing confirmation of the German love of simulation games (a whole row dedicated to them in the computer store) and also found a store clearly owned by one of my old lecturers.

    After walking around all day, I managed to buy a new pair of shoes, necessary because, at this point my shoes were leaking in water through the soles when it rained.

    Berlin, Germany

    May 9, 2017 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 8 °C

    Visit to Hofbrau Muchen beer haus.
    Waiter: "What can I get you?"
    Chris: "Dark beer please"
    Waiter: "Yah, half or litre?"
    Chris: Ah, just a half thanks.
    Waiter: "And you madam?"
    Lisa: "Red wine please."
    Waiter: "Yah, glass, half, or litre?"
    Lisa: - pauses - "ah... just a glass"
    Chris: - sigh of relief -

    Despite the photo, Lisa decided it was 'not-right' to drink wine in a German beer hall, so she promptly finished her wine and ordered a beer :) Lisa's is still trying to hunt down the HB dark beer in Australia! ;)

    Day 58: Travel Day to Berlin

    August 17, 2017 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    Today we travelled from Prague to Berlin. I forgot that I got rid of all my Czech korunas so I had to kindly request (a.k.a beg) the train restaurant guy to exchange a euro for a little bit of change so I could keep some of the currency because I'm cheesy like that.

    After our train, we made our way to our hostel and met our roommate who is actually really nice and we went to all you can eat sushi together. Angie lives in San Francisco and worked for Google and now Uber so you can imagine that Zoe and I asked her 200 questions.

    By the end of the night, I had to find good WiFi as I thought it would be a good idea to start job hunting in Europe, so I had an interview. Thankfully I found good WiFi as the hostel WiFi was really choppy. I had to buy a tea though, which turned out to be pretty good so it was a nice little WiFi chasing night in the middle of Berlin.

    I don't have many pictures as it was a travel day, but I did include the 6 pictures that I happened to take for the purpose of making an effort to have some to include.

    - Phill's Corner was where we ate a total of four times, but I wish it could have been 100.
    - The hostel is that in Berlin which is really nice.
    - Took a picture of our table to show how we've become Bag Ladies.
