This past January we visited our dear friends in Berlin. As far as our time with our friends goes, it was one for the books! Great conversations, yummy food and endless laughs. However. Berlin was probably my least favorite European city I have ever visited. Admittedly it could have been due to the dreary January weather, but even with that consideration, I can’t say I would go back. That said, it is the third time we have visited Germany and the rest of the country is stunning, it is just Berlin that felt so monochromatic. We are grateful for the wonderful visit we had with our friends, but overall, I would say there are better places in Europe to visit. Here are a few shots of the city, Checkpoint Charlie, the Wall, and a few of the historical buildings. We did enjoy some great German beers!
