Something exciting is going to happen soon. Graham and I are going to Berlin for a long weekend! Dulcie is spending the weekend at home with her grandparents! Can you believe it? This is big wow!
Graham and I are not really a travelly couple and have never been abroad together except to visit my sister. And we've only ever spent one night away from Dulcie before, when we went to Newcastle in January. But some genius put a giant map of the world on the wall of the kitchen at my work and it gave me itchy feet and made me realise how close all of Europe is to us, so I went on Easyjet's website, found destinations for direct flights from Glasgow and gave Graham the choice of Paris, Amsterdam or Berlin. Within days we had booked flights to Berlin and soon(ish) we'll be offski!
I spent a few days in Berlin many years ago and LOVED it, but wouldn't say I know it at all well. Graham has never been. I was wondering if any of you had any tips of must-see attractions or nice places to eat or just meander? We've already got a place to stay - Singer 109 "where four of Berlin's most fascinating trend districts - Mitte, Friedrichshain, Prenzlauer Berg and Kreuzberg - meet." Apparently! Beyond this, we haven't got anything organised and I'd like to have some sort of skeleton itinerary in place before we go so we can make the most of our short time there. So, please, hit me with your Berlin recommendations!
