{berlin adventures}

We’re back home after a long weekend in Berlin and as much fun as I had, I missed all of you and my little blog bunches!

It was my husband’s first visit to Germany’s capitol and my family’s hometown. So, aside from visiting with grandma, aunts, uncles and cousins, we did some sight seeing.
Saturday was a beautiful — but freezing cold — day and we visited a few sights.

The Brandenburg Gate and Holocaust Memorial:

Around the Museum Island at the Spree and the Statue of Liberty-Bear at the American Embassy:

At Checkpoint Charly, the famous crossing point between West and East Berlin during the Cold War:

Berlin is home to a lot of old American cars, like the AMC Pacer we spotted not far from Checkpoint Charly. Below a picutre of a Trabant (Trabi) from former East Germany:

At the Eastside Gallery, a 1.3 km long section of the Berlin Wall:

    Sounds like you had a good time. Next time I’m in Germany, I’m going to go see that! Sounds very interesting. Even though my husband is from Germany, and I went over there to be with him, we visited lots of places but not Berlin. I just love Germany, and he loves Texas where we live.

    Paula, you should definitely try to see Berlin while you’re in Germany on your next trip over! It’s always worth a visit!
    How often do you make it over here? :)
