My time in Berlin was a tale of two trips, the first part could be the sightseeing part. Saw all kinds of incredible ww2 and cold war museums. Saw the brandenburg gate, the bunker hitler committed suicide, checkpoint Charlie, the Berlin wall, the Jewish memorial, the victory statue, among a few other things
The second part of the stop in Berlin was the nightlife/ beer festival. I met this really cool s African guy at the hostal and we ended up hanging out all weekend. Cool guy, had a lot in common and had a blast. He and I headed to the beer festival on Friday and hung out for about 4 hours. This beer festival broke the world record for the largest beer garten in the world at 2.2 km long. Food, music, arts n crafts, booths, and over 2000 kinds of beer. It was amazing. I had perma grin on my face. So what you did was buy a .2 L mug for 3 euro and walk to all the different beer vendors and pay 1.5 e to have them full the glass up w their beer. AWESOME! So lots of beer was to be had over the weekend to say the least. After we left on Friday , we met up w micheal, a guy I met in Frankfurt when I was there woo lives on Berlin and we all headed out to this club on fri night
Saturday Rodney and I slept a bit and went to he beer festival for a good 5 hours and again went out w micheal on sat night. Went to bed at 7 am again. Oh man what a tiring pace
Sunday Rodney and I hit the festival again on its last day and were there for a few hours but also went to this Jamaican club/ bar/ hangout place. Had sand volleyball/ ping pong/ b ball/ and a bunch of really cool spots to just chill by the river and talk it up which Rodney and I did for a few hours. After that we just chilled at the hostel for a bit and went to bed early, 1am
Well that was Berlin. Did it proper. Met some amazing , fun people again and had an amazon Rome at the beer fest. That was the goal! I will def come back to Berlin! What a place!
Prague in the morning! I'm excited for some eastern Europe culture!
