So the plan to sight-see/brush up on my history doing the walking tour etc just didnt work out...I pretty much have not stopped partying since my feet hit Berlin and its been so so incredibly fun (excluding the horrific hang-overs the next day of course).
Berlin night-life is pretty much awesome and the whole city itself just has this really great vibe about it - plus its beautiful at night! The hostel im staying at is really central so everything is just a walk away - shopping, the TV Tower, Checkpoint Charlie, Brandenburg Gates, Holocaust Memorial, a very good kebab shop whos best customers have been the guys n gals ive been partying with...i of course get to have a salad lol after the alcohol though my body thanks me for it i think. One thing ive definately learnt is that they love their meat in Germany especially pork. Bit yuck really just how much they love it but the serving sizes are massive, even the salad i got could have fed a 5 person family easily!! And that anything less than a half litre glass of beer simply doesnt exist and would probably offend should u order anything less.
So im feeling refreshed after a night off the drink and ready to hit the ground running to catch up on everything i should have done when i first got here. Good thing I gave myself 5 nights here because I sooooo dont want to leave! I love it!
