Olympiastadion Berlin

To write about our visit to the Olympiastadion in Berlin involves writing for hours about how awestruck we were about the whole experience. After all, we got the chance to explore one of the most significant sites in Nazi German history- having been the site of the 1936 Summer Olympics. It is also where the…

I Miss Berlin

In so many ways, Berlin was the perfect destination for us for our honeymoon. It was this great mix of learning something new, taking in the history and culture, and just walking around together. I couldn’t have asked for a better way to spend the first few days with my new husband than the way…

Take Me Back

On increasingly difficult days like today, I like to look at old pictures and disconnect. I like to allow myself to re-live some great moments just by looking at all the snaps that live on my phone. I mean isn’t it awesome that I get to carry around pictures of our wedding and honeymoon with…

Some More Love in Berlin

There are several forms to express love, as anyone would tell you. And it seems that throughout our trip to Berlin, that manifested itself in so many different ways, including the little stretch of the Berlin Wall at the East Side Gallery where people hang up their locks. Another type we found was in one…

Some of My Favorite Moments From Berlin

We’ve always been the couple who takes pictures of anything at any place. Whether dressed up or just chilling at home, it’s always been a thing of ours to take out a camera and document. So our first trip together, our honeymoon, was no different- except maybe we had two cameras and a selfie stick…

A Funny Thought I Had In Berlin

Checkpoint Charlie is one of those can’t miss sites when you visit Berlin. If you’re at least remotely interested in the history of this city or have the basic knowledge that it was split in two by a massive wall, you’ll want to see this location where one could cross from West Berlin to East…

All The Way At The Top

It was definitely a highlight for us to see one of Berlin’s iconic landmarks, the TV Tower (known as the Fersehturm) all the time from our hotel room. In fact, I’m quite a bit disappointed that I have now gone back to seeing a parking lot and the next building from my bedroom. The TV…

Love in Berlin

Paris has the¬†Pont des Arts,¬†famous for the locks that used to adorn its sides. Lovers from all over the world flock to lock in their love in one of the most romantic cities in the world. Berlin could be as furthest from a romantic city as possible, with its history more commonly associated with war…

Back at the German History Museum

When I first visited Berlin in 2012, the highlight of the trip for me was the German History Museum. I loved going through 2000 years of history over the course of three hours and just learning as much as I could about Germany and how much it’s been through and the progression it has made…

Taking Everything In

I don’t know how it is possible for time to have gone by so slowly and yet so quickly in the past week or so. Let’s just say it has been the most exciting one so far. Even when we were deep in the planning process, it was hard for me to imagine how it…
