Whenever we land in a new place we both decide what we want to see and do and then I plan the time from there. For Berlin, Magpie wanted to see the Brandenburg Gate. It was the first “site” we went too.
I prefer walking everywhere or if we have to we take the local bus. The walk was approximately a half hour from our apartment in East Berlin to the Brandenburg Gate. On the way we did window shopping. We found lots of vegan restaurants which was great and book stores – english books. It was a sidewalk sale and the books were english. Both Magpie and I found some books. Usually I just read whatever books Magpie gets. We carry onto the Gate.
