Wanderlust Wednesday is a series where I revisit a past travel adventure and memory. This week, we take a look back at Berlin, Germany.
By the time I made it to Germany on my 2012 Euro Trip I had never been so sick. My cold that had started as a sniffle in Warsaw had morphed into a disgusting germ monster by the time I reached Berlin (just a day later).
But, I didn’t let this stop me; this may have one of the stupider things I’ve done in my life, but I only had one day in Berlin. It had to be done.
To take in Berlin, my travel buddies and I joined one of the free walking tours–if you are going to Berlin, I would definitely recommend the walking tours. Over the course of three hours we traipsed all over the city; from the Brandenburg Gates to the Berlin Wall to Museum Island, this tour took us everywhere.
When asked about Berlin, I can only describe it as surreal. It’s a very strange feeling to be exploring a city that was at the centre of so much history. From seeing the leftover pieces of the wall, to standing in the middle of the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe (pictured above); the entire afternoon was incredibly humbling.
If you haven’t had the chance to visit Berlin, I would highly recommend it. I can’t wait to go back; hopefully this time without the cold.
