We got back this afternoon after spending 4 days in Berlin. We had such a fantastic time! We really went because we wanted to go to the Christmas markets...G and I have wanted to do this for such a long time, and we weren't disappointed.
The markets were truly magical - there was so much to see, gorgeous treats to eat and of course so many pretty things to buy. Everywhere you looked, gluhwein was being sold and G certainly enjoyed a few of those! I have to say, it really wasn't for me and I much preferred drinking the apple tea on offer. It was very cold and even snowed, so hot drinks were certainly needed to keep the chill away. Miss M and I also really enjoyed eating potato fritters with apple sauce and hot waffles with Nutella! There were also lots of merry-go-rounds and old fashioned carousels...Miss M had a great time going on those. We all went on the giant Ferris wheel you can see in the pictures and it was lovely to get such a great view of the city from way up high.
As well as visiting the Christmas markets we did quite a bit of sightseeing, taking in the Brandenburg Gate, the Reichstag and the Holocaust Memorial. We also went to the Musuem for Natural History with the main purpose of seeing the dinosaur exhibits (Miss M is a huge dinosaur fan!) and Legoland which was great too.
We bought a few little souvenirs which I will show soon when I get a chance to take some photos of them.
We are all pretty tired this evening, in fact Miss M is already fast asleep in bed, so I am planning a relaxing evening catching up with some blog reading and some crochet! Its great to be away, but I also love coming home to my cosy little house!
