*Destination: Berlin* (Part 2)2 April, 2013
Well, as always I took a lot of them, trying to document every singe thing I saw around the streets, the zoo, the bars and the restaurants we visited… Not all of them were worthy, but I’ve gathered the best of them (well, my favorites) hoping you’ll enjoy them! I certainly did, while I was browsing through my “Berlin Oct.’12″ folder and felt rather nostalgic about that trip…
Our first afternoon in Berlin was scheduled-free so we decided to head to the Zoo. It was quite cold but we really enjoyed our time walking through all the different departments of animal species. My all time favorite is of course the felines where we got to watch the one and only imposing king roaring from frustration caused of course, by all the tourists who were taking pictures and videos of him. Not a very pleasant sight really.
I just couldn’t help it… You should know me by know…
I was determined to make the most out of our last day visiting Berlin, so I persuaded Mr. T (with some difficulty I must admit) to hop-on the sight seeing bus with me and and have a tour around the city. We actually got to see a lot of things we wouldn’t be able to see by foot in a day’s time so it was pretty worth it although it kinda tired us. At some point where we had hop-off-ed for photos etc. at some landmark I cannot recall right now, the bus left without us. Ha ha ha right? Well, It wasn’t that bad after all because we walked by all those beautiful little streets and squares and headed to the Pergamon Museum, which as Greeks, we HAD to visit! And it was truly one of our top 5′s of our trip!
Speaking of top 5′s, apart from the whole Bar Convent experience which was amazing of course, my best culinary moment of the trip, was after the city tour when we were quite exhausted from walking and starting to feel the Northern cold through our bones and decided to have dinner at Monsieur Vuong, where we had the best Vietnamese soups and salads ever!
Also, as part of the “spirit-ual” character of our trip we couldn’t have missed visiting some of Berlin’s finest bars, such as the Amano Bar, Bar Immertreu and the Butcher’s Speakeasy Bar!!!
Auf wiedersehen Berlin! We’ll definitely visit you again some time, we really liked you!!!
