We arrived in Berlin early afternoon and were feeling a bit lazy, but I knew we had to get out and do something. I really wanted my kids to see the former Berlin Wall, as my Mom lived in both East and West Germany and at one point, they escaped from East Germany. I am going to ask for the full story again, because I can't remember the details, other than being on a motorcycle with her father, being dressed up as and pretending to be her Mom. We explored the art on the Wall, touched the wall and headed back to the train. Ryder's one wish while in Germany, was to eat schnitzel. And just like that, on the corner as were almost to the train station, was Scheels Schnitzel restaurant. It was a super cool, little restaurant with fantastic schnitzel. In the evening, we went to a hotel-recommended Biersalon and let's just say that that had to be more about the history of the place and the beer than the food (not so good). Great first day in Berlin.
P.S. I booked only two days in Berlin because I know we will be here as a family. My Mom is German and Steve's Grandparents came from Germany, so we have a lot to explore here. Once Steve retires from the Navy, we can fly free space-A to Ramstein, so we will hopefully take advantage of that in the near future. Yay to military retirement perks. :-)
