Berlin // May 2013
My sister and I spent three days in Berlin this past spring. After stays in London, Paris, and Stockholm, we were absolutely relieved to visit somewhere that didn’t cost an arm and a leg! We Couchsurfed at a guy’s place who a friend of mine recommended and it was awesome…he had lived in Berlin his whole life and told us really interesting stories about the wall coming down, what life was like with a divided Germany, and how the legacy of WWII affected Germany and Germans. So fascinating.

We didn’t visit a lot of museums there; rather, we lounged around the city, enjoyed the sunny weather, and ate lots of delicious food.
