I am readjusting to being back in the usual weekday routine after a few exhausting, but wonderful days with my lovely family in Berlin.
We took in a lot of the sights, photographed the grafitti on the remains of the Berlin Wall and walked miles!
On the second day we bought day passes and we braved public transport, hopping on and off the U-bahn.
Everyone we asked was very helpful in spite of our poor attempts to speak German and the transport system was really convenient once you got the hang of it, especially as the trains run every 5-10 minutes.
Berlin is a fascinating city and I would love to go back soon.
