Work has been super crazy for Jon here in Dublin. When I originally planned my trip to visit him, we had a week-long trip to Italy in the works. We were going to hit Venice and Florence, and then rent a car to drive around Umbria and Tuscany and drink as much wine along the way as possible (although not at the same time).
Unfortunately work put the kibosh on that trip all together but luckily without spending too much additionally, we were able to re-book our tickets to Berlin, where we spent an extended weekend.
I’m so excited to share my Berlin Travel Photos with you today!! And honestly, Berlin is SO awesome! There is art, culture, food, and a bar scene that can’t be beat. Maybe the next place I’ll land overseas for more than a weekend?!
We enjoyed our time on a Berlin Food Tour, hosted by Bastian. We saw an amazing exhibit of Mario Testino and some of the work he did for Vogue and other various magazines. And most notably, we visited the Topography of Terror Museum documenting the rise and fall of Hitler and the plight of the European Jews. We also visited the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe. Walking through the Memorial was a somber experience, but I’m glad we paid our respects and learned about this part of history.
We walked the Berlin wall and experienced some fabulous street art around the city.
We also visited the Reichstag, or German Parliament that housed the famous dome made of glass.
My camera battery died within 5 minutes of our trip beginning so this was an iPhone weekend. Apple to the rescue!! Seriously
Now that I am back in Chicago and it’s FREAKING cold outside, I’ll have no excuse for not showing you pictures from my previous trips so be on the look out for more “wanderlust” photos soon!
Have you been to Berlin? What was your favorite touristy thing to do?! Leave it in the comments…
