In November 2016 I took my best friend with me on a road trip with my parents to Berlin, with a short stop in Copenhagen along the way.
Our departure from home at around 8 in the morning leaves us in Copenhagen about 18 o’clock. We of course could drive all the way to Berlin on the first day, but we chose to spend some time in Copenhagen just for old times sake (we used to go here quite often in my younger days). Unfortunately, I did not have the time to take photos from our short stay, since it was already dark outside when we first came, and we had to leave early in the morning. Our rented apartment was gorgeous though, modern and clean with huge world maps behind the beds.
The next day included a drive about half as long as the day before. Nothing really happened the first day, I showed my sidekick around since it was her first ever visit to Germany. We stayed just at Alexanderplatz, an area I feel very comfortable in. I guess we weren’t really that energetic that day because of the previous long car rides, so we quickly settled down in our hotel for the rest of the night.
Sightseeing was a must on our schedule, to show her around the city that me and my parents have always come back to. We went to Potsdamer Platz, where Mall of Berlin was an absolute must since none of us had been there before. Potsdamer Platz had a winter market going on, which in my taste didn’t look too appealing, but it was still cozy. We also took a visit to the Holocaust Memorial, where we also managed to get some clips for a short film just for fun, running in between the giant blocks. I got a whole lot of shopping done, which felt great for my wardrobe but worse for my wallet.
Anyways, the whole trip wasn’t too hectic, which was nice. It feels good sometimes to just get away for a few days and be somewhere else for a while.
