Before the adventures in Sweden and Denmark were underway, Sebastian and I spent 5 days together in Berlin.
Berlin is Sebastian’s home town and any time we go back, he in in his element.
Of all the cities in Germany, Berlin is my favorite too. It is young, fun, multicultural, artistic, and unusual. I just love the Berlin buzz.
Although I’ve been to Berlin 6 times in the past 3 years, I had never been to the top of the TV tower.
Well, not until this time at least!
I’ve seen many a city from the top of tall buildings, and although the view was great, I wouldn’t put this top at the top of my list because the shape of the glass made it hard to take good pictures. Nevertheless, here are a few shots of the great city of Berlin!
In addition to playing tourist in his home town, Sebastian also showed me a good time at his friend’s birthday BBQ.
In order to save him from embarrassment, I did my best to make the most “normal” food choices.
How to Not Look Like a Weirdo Vegetarian at a BBQ
Step 1: Buy meat look alike products
Step 3: Eat some junk food too!
Step 4: Remember that Halloumi is always a hit.
Step 5: Bring your goods in a container with beer and other BBQ necessities.
Step 6: Be nice to the griller and lick your lips with the rest of them!
Step 7: Enjoy some East German chocolates for dessert.
On the way to the BBQ, we visited the downtown area of the borough in Berlin where Sebastian grew up.
