Well we made it safe and sound, Berlin is truly a beautiful place filled with beautiful people, lots of beards, buns and bikes. Our first day was mainly relaxing and getting our barings, planning for the weeks ahead. Our hostel is on the outskirts of Friedrichshain the staff are so friendly and welcoming, in the first few days we have made some great friends, mainly French. Unlike British people here will actually approach you and make the effort to chat and build friendships. So all in all our first day was spent drinking cheap beers the size of our face, making plans and hanging out with the hostel dog.
I will keep you guys posted.
