A Weekend in Berlin, Germany

Berlin Wall, Berlin, Germany

Germany has long been on both Andrew and my travel bucket lists. We decided that a weekend in Berlin would be the perfect place to start. What interested me most about visiting Germany was the chance to see how history and progress interact in a place where so much has happened in the past 100 […]
