Having never visited Berlin before I did not know what to expect apart from what I had been told by friends which was mostly ‘You will love Berlin!’ ‘Why will I love Berlin?’ I wondered. Of course I love to travel, and am lucky enough to say it is part of my job as a blogger now, but I wanted to know what made people rave on about this city! As soon as we arrived I quickly realized Berlin was quite different from many of the European cities I had visited before. The contrast between traditional and urban culture makes this city unique and even just being here a few days you can tell that it is evolving and growing stronger still. 

 On our first day we made our way over to some of the famous landmarks of the city including the famous arch, the Brandenburg Gate and the Reichstag Building. Next it was off to the Currywurst Museum to learn all about the city’s most famous food. It was Herta Heuwer who’s credited with coming up with the idea of slivering a sausage, drenching it in tomato sauce and adding a fine sprinkling of curry powder back in 1949 in Berlin. Afterwards it was time for some traditional Currywurst at Curry 36. We had 2 currywurst with fries and mayonnaise! In the afternoon we made out way out to Markthalle Neun for Streetfood Thursday and enjoyed an array of different styles of street food and local brew. Being summer the sun was still out after dinner so we made our way to the Fernsehturm (TV Tower) to take in the 360 views of the city bathed in the glow of the sunset. A beautiful Berlin day!
