On Tuesday the 2nd of September at a bright an early 6:30am Gaby and myself took off on our next adventure to Berlin.. By bus. Not that it was at all a bad thing, it in fact reminded me quite a bit of Euro Tour and I sat in the same spot on that bus that I did on Euro Tour. But after a good 2-3 hours on the road my eyes lit up as they saw Berlin. There we stayed with Gaby's son Frank and his family.
Day 1 - Arrival and city tour

Day 2 - Karla's new school
So we went in to pick Karla up from her new French school and had a lovely brunch at an adorable restaurant/cafe called the Einstein.
Later that night the whole family and the two of us went out for dinner and had doner and it was delicious!!
Day 3 - A day with Nathan
And so I met up with one of my plane buddies Nathan (Australian) and he took me around Berlin, exchange style hahah. We walked and talked and went to and Australian shop and then found some food and a park and relaxed.

Leni, the dog that found us in the park. He just sat with us for about an hour and then we read his collar and rang the owners. They were quite happy to find the little guy.

Day 4 - Chocolate Factory day and Souvenirs
Now just to explain the Berlin bear thing, the bear is the symbol of Berlin and throughout the city there are these bears and each one has been decorated differently. Moving on. So today Kuno, myself and Gaby went through Berlin to find the oh so magical Ritter Sport chocolate factory!!! MAKE YOUR OWN CHOCOLATE! And that's exactly what we did. So whilst the chocolate was setting we went upstairs to their cafe and had our selves a little treat. Then we were off for souvenirs.

Day 5 - And we're on the road again
Saturday was my last day in Berlin and I spent it with Karla. She took me around and we visited a few different places close to where she lives. One stop was an adorable little sweet shop. Yes I did buy something there. We headed towards her old school, Kuno goes there and it's not too far from the house and we went to cute little craft shop.
Coolest sign ever. Converse for life!
We headed home late afternoon and it was a scary ride home. We drove in a rainstorm that was full of lightning, although it was quite a lovely show. Overall my week in Berlin was pretty awesome, seeing all that history was epic. Thank you to Gaby for taking me places and looking after me, I really, really appreciate that. But I must say the bed was calling to me after the week.
