So after a 3am wake-up (yikes!), 3 hour transfer, 2 hour flight & 1 hour train ride – we arrived in gloomy Berlin!
It wasn’t quite raining, but enough of that misty rain that makes your hair fro and coats you with a layer of damp, but not enough to warrant carrying around an umbrella like a princess.
Of course my first mission was to find me some food, so we ducked into a dimly lit cafe which was somewhat a library. Don’t expect to find something to read unless you sprechen Deutsch.
Böse Buben Bar is a perfect way to wait out the rain and catch up your insta-ing with the free wi-fi. The menu is completely in German and don’t expect to get much help from the wait staff.
We accidentally ordered 2 breakfasts each on the first day. But I mean, that isn’t too much out of character now is it?
The outside of the cafe is covered with greenery and cute tables which would be lovely in summer. Although in this weather, even with those blankets, I was heading inside. From what I could decipher this is the breakfast plate with loads of goodies…
Then off to explore… bikes are the way to do it in Berlin. Unless you’re a midget like me. Unfortunately most of the city bikes in each city are a tad too large for my frame 🙁 walking for me!
Although the trains are also v good. And from what I could see almost no one buys tickets, but I wouldn’t recommend that.
