Berlin trip pt 1.

It's been a week now since I've been home from Berlin and the blues are just drifting away, I thought I'd share my time there and why I loved the city so much. I took most of my photos on my fisheye (which I still need to get developed) because lugging my massive DSLR around was gonna hurt!

I'm terrified of flying so instead of knocking myself out with pills (like I did on the way home) I decided to get drunk at the airport - big mistake! Massive panic attack ensued during take-off and I felt so uneasy the whole flight but once we had landed I was ready to hit up Berlin hard.

We booked an apartment for the 6 of us using (which I highly recommend, you pay before you get there and they are mostly privately run) and the apartment itself was incredible! It felt like our own shared home:

On our first night we hit up some bars and hung out with the locals who showed us the ropes. its so crazy how liberal Berlin is we could smoke in the bars and they had no measurements for the alcohol  (which had me a bit worse for wear on the Friday) and everything was crazy cheap.

The second evening, after nursing our hangovers, we decided to go to Alexanderplatz and go up the TV Tower. You go up 666ft in 40 seconds in the lift it was mental! The views were great as the day had been pretty clear so the evening you could see about 20miles across the city. There was a fancy bar there too where we had a drink before going back to our place for drinks before hitting up one of Berlins famous House Music nightclubs 'Watergate'. 

I'll post up part 2 of my trip a little later in the week plus I really want to get my films back so I can share some better pictures!
