Day 2 started with breakfast at our fav cafe Böse Buben Bar. Today I managed to just order one breakfast. I think you can guess what they are 🙂

Having touched on the Berlin history yesterday, I was keen to learn more.

So we hopped on the hop on & off bus like true lame tourists.

For you shoppers, apparently this shopping centre is the holy grail!Berlin city tour

What’s worse is that we didn’t even get off, except to stop for lunch at Hard Rock. Seriously pathetic. I won’t lie though, it was nice just driving past all the monuments, taking a snap, all from the comfort of the heated bus.

Juicy pork ribs…

I think I might die. Hankering for dessert (how is that possible?) I stumbled across this make your own chocolate shop, Ritter Sport. I can’t believe I didn’t think of this idea!

You get to create your own chocolate. Starting with a base of milk or dark, you add whatever fillings your chocolate heart desires and pick it up in 30 minutes. Divine!

I went for milk with chilli, almonds and gold chocolate stars and I wasn’t disappointed.

After a brief lie-down, we headed off for dinner at Dicke Wirtin, for traditional german fare.

I opted for the smoked pork & at least a kg of potato bake… and the mister for schnitzel. Dicke Wirtin Smoked PorkDicke Wirtin Schnitzel
