We will miss Amsterdam. Spent yesterday just walking around. There are H&M’s everywhere, so we bought some jean shorts because we both forgot ours and we just felt like we needed them. We found an icecream shop that was soooo delicious. We needed that because for lunch we had some really awful pizza. We will never buy pizza again.
We barely made it to our train to Berlin on time because we forgot we had to get our Eurail passes activated. Woops! Made it on the train though. We did, however, miss our connection at Duisburg, so we had to wait another hour for the next train. We got into Berlin at about midnight. Being afraid of being in a brand new city at dark, we took a cab to the hostel. The driver told us this is a very safe city and not to worry.
We stayed in Pfefferbett hostel last night and that’s where we are now. It’s so cool in here. So much better compared to our past hostels, and cheaper. Our beds were really comfy, we had a reading light and an outlet next to our beds which was so nice, lockers in our room. It may not sound like much, but it’s so much better than where we’ve been staying. We move to a different hostel tonight due to scheduling issues. That one is supposed to be really nice too.
The plan is to take the free walking tour today to get familiar with Berlin. It looks a lot bigger than Amsterdam.
