Berlin, the easiest city to get lost in
We made sure to visit many of the museums and learn about all the history of the city, but we also had a little fun visiting all the famous Christmas markets, and eating A LOT of sausage sandwiches.
One highlight of Berlin was actually one of our many failures (yet hysterical failures) of the trip. We really wanted to get to one of the concentration camp memorials so we talked to some tourist information desks, and they directed us to our route towards the memorial that was pretty far outside the city. We had a very animated conversation during the train ride, so much so that after the hour we had been sitting on the train, we somehow missed our stop. Getting off at the next closest stop, we were now an hour walk and a twenty minute cab ride from the memorial. With no wifi or data, the only thing nearby was a small pub, so of course we decided this was our only hope. The only person in the pub was, I presume, the owner, who was an older German guy who spoke little to no English. In the middle of no where, we tried to communicate with this man, who was trying so hard to help us. He eventually understood what we needed, offered us some German beer and called us a cab. Although the day did not go exactly how we planned, we had a great time meeting the German pub owner, got to enjoy a nice German beer, and see some of the country side of Germany.
