Sorry I have been so late with my blog posts, I have to say there just doesnt seem to be enough time these days!!!! My last week with my host in Germany was very nice, and I will use subtitles to describe my weekend/Berlin adventures because it is the only way I will be able to organize my thoughts without going off on a tangent.
So Saturday my lovely german family took me to Poland. Right?!?!!? What is this life. Actually, since I ...
... to read , see and absorb. We stayed for about an hour and a half and the decided that we needed to head back. on the way home we stopped at at an amazing Vietnamese restaurant for a late lunch - it was about 3 ish, we loved our meals and felt so glad that we went in there. We caught the tram home but Baz and I ended up doing some last minute shopping. Barry ended up buying some jeans which looked great on him. We got ...

Next we walked to the Berlin Holocaust Memorial. It was one of the most interesting things I've ever experienced. Now when I say memorial, this wasn't what you would expect. There were no statues or plaques or anything you would ordinarily expect at a memorial. I'll post some pictures of it because it's difficult to describe. In the middle of Berlin there is one ...
... who called out 'get to the back of the line'. Then it was escorts all the way, through identity checks, security scans, body frisks and then accompanied through security locks, lifts and corridors to arrive at the roof of the government building, while they were sitting, for the most amazing views through the glass domed roof that wound it's way up this incredible spiral staircase.

The wall although not what we expected has been turned into a kilometre and a half of open air art painted by artists from all over the world depicting their own ideas re the symbolism of oppression and freedom. Much of the original wall has been hacked out in pieces by people taking souvenirs so what remains is now considered a museum piece.
The water taxi part of the hop on and Off tour was certainly a good way in which to get a better perspective of the way in ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsIbis Berlin Ostbahnhof
As with all major cities Berlin has a mass of hotels ranging for the cheap to the blinking ridiculous! We chose the Ibis Berlin Ostbahnhof simply because it is located next to the one of the main railway stations in Berlin which is very convenient for our train from Amsterdam and one to Warsaw. The hotel is just across the street from the station and is only a couple of minutes' walk as long as you leave by the nearest doors! The station is massive and if you leave at the wrong end it is can easily double the distance you have to walk outside something you won't do twice in this weather! After getting off the train head for the main hall and then follow the signs or smell of Subways, go past Subways and use the exit at the end of the hallway you can't miss the hotel which is to the left.
The hotel is what you would expect from an Ibis, clean, warm and modern and only cost 45EUR a night. Based in East Berlin most tourist sites are a little further away but are easily accessible on the metro from the station right across the street. We would recommend this hotel to other travellers.
