Trip to Berlin

In April I visited a good friend of mine who is living in Berlin, Germany for a few years. Her partner, Ben Mauk, is a recipient of the 2014-2015 U.S. Fulbright Award for Young Journalists and they’re in Berlin so he can work on his project. I was fortunate enough to be able to stay with them and have Carleen show me around all her favorite sights, neighborhoods, restaurants, and even venture around some new areas she hadn’t been to. It was a fairly short trip, just 5 days, but I’m so glad I was able to go. For this post I omitted pictures of the two of us and am just showing the highlights of what I saw.

The Bode Museum.

berlin-5Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe.
berlin-6On Museum Island (where the Bode Museum is located) I came across this bridge that has locks much like the Love Lock bridge in Paris. Unfortunately this bridge isn’t made to support the weight of the locks, so every couple years they’re all removed. berlin-7berlin-8The Sony is the area that Carleen and Ben live the restaurants and bars have fresh flowers and are candle-lit at thought I should include at least one picture of me 🙂 The next couple of pictures are at the Berlin Wall – East Side Gallery.
