BERLIN LOOKBOOK

Here is a quick OOTD from my trip to Berlin.

Day one. On this was the outfit I flew in as my cape was far to heavy for my meer hand luggage allowance. Packing smart is one thing, but dressing smart is another. We didn’t do too much as we got to Berlin mid afternoon so we used the time to get our bearings in the city and getting our heads around the underground metro system (which was INCREDIBLY easy, efficient and clean). We just saw Brandenburg gate in all its glory, the cathedral and ate some street food. In Germany they had a street food called currywurst which was basically bratwurst sausage sliced covered in a tomato sauce and dusted with curry powder and served with chips or bread. Don’t knock it until you try it because once I reluctantly ate some of James’, I’ve never looked back.

 Here is my OOTD from Berlin day two. On this day me and James visited the some of the main tourist attractions that where relatively close together including Alexanderplatz, Checkpoint Charlie, Altes museum, Reichstag building and the holocaust memorial to name a few. We ended the day in a beer garden with pilsner and street food once again. As we were very busy that day it was hard to find food places for a snack that would be quick, easy and cheap. What we did however, was grab food in any metro station we where at. Unlike in London or Paris, almost every Berlin underground station has a bakery, florist, convenience store and in some cases fast food places, nail salons, boutiques, ALL IN THE UNDERGROUND STATION. At our underground station in Charlottenburg I would grab a pretzel and coffee, which would set me back about 2 euros altogether? Alsodonuts where 50 cents so every time we stopped at a new part of the city or even just to change trains I couldn’t go without.

On this day me and James visited the East Side Gallery to see the artwork on the remainder of the Berlin wall, followed by a trip around Eberswalder Straße (one of the trendier artsy areas in Berlin) and also shopping centres Mall of Berlin and KaDeWe. We ended our final day in Berlin at the Hard Rock Cafe which is just something be and James like to do during our travels to cities. As it’s so Americanised I was reluctant to visit as I wanted to emerse myself in the local cuisine and all that jazz but I think I ate enough sauasge and pretzels to deserve a burger. Plus the staff were amazing.
