Before heading to Germany, we booked our train from Frankfurt to Berlin and it took us some time to decide which train to take to ensure we wouldn't miss it if our flight was late. It worked out that we had more than enough time between landing, getting our luggage, going through customs, and making the train. The train was really comfortable and the ride offered some great scenery of the countryside, but the 4 hour ride ended up being about 5 and ...

Unfortunately it was raining quite hard so first stop was to buy Colin a new brolly - a nice bright yellow one so I don't lose him. We walked past the new synagogue, Hackeschehofe shopping area and ended up near the Dom. Visited the Humboldt Box, a temporary building set up ...
