Dresden to Prague, Wednesday 11 October, 2017

Wednesday, 11 Oct 2017 | Views [35]

Up and straight to the Royal Palace museum.  We were able to secure tickets to the Green Vault but with an hour to kill before our time, we started with the Turkish chamber and the Armoury both of which were excellent.  But the vault was even ... Read more >

Dresden, Tuesday 10 October

Tuesday, 10 Oct 2017 | Views [32]

We headed off to take advantage of the free walking tours that our bus ticket entitles us to.  One of the amazing things about Dresden is the lack of any English-speaking tourists and the locals were intrigued as to why we came all the way from ... Read more >

Berlin to Dresden, Monday 9 October, 2017

Monday, 9 Oct 2017 | Views [23]

As we leave Berlin, I will note that we have done very well – we have not yet been run over despite continually looking the wrong way every time we cross the road – our friendly Ampelmann have been helpful but they are not always there to ... Read more >

Berlin, Sunday 8 October 2017

Our last day in Berlin and the weather was beautiful.  We headed off to the Deutsches Technikmuseum.  Navigated the U Bahn successfully by ourselves.  The museum was amazing.  Had a huge air and space display – both pre and ... Read more >

With the weather continuing to be miserable we decided on a museum day – and there are some great ones here.  Museum Island is right near where we are staying and we went the Neues Museum and the Alte National Galerie.  The Neues Museum ... Read more >

Berlin, Friday 6 October 2017

Friday, 6 Oct 2017 | Views [21]

Went for a wander to Marienkirche, one of the oldest churches in the city.  It dates prior to the 11 th century but no one is exactly sure when. It has the most amazing murals which appear to support Eric Von Danniken’s theories on aliens.... Read more >

Berlin, Thursday 5 October 2017

Thursday, 5 Oct 2017 | Views [45]

I love German breakfasts 😊.  Especially after 12 hours sleep.  Spent the morning in the Bode museum on Museum Island which is literally outside our door.  Our accommodation is good and so well placed.  Walking distance to almost ... Read more >

Berlin, Wednesday 4 October 2017

Wednesday, 4 Oct 2017 | Views [31]

Arrived in Germany and made it to the motel where our room was ready early so we got to shower!!  Kerstin arrived to pick us up for a day of being touristy.  Was great to see her again.  It’s just like she has never been away when ... Read more >

In transit, Tuesday 3 October 2017

Tuesday, 3 Oct 2017 | Views [29]

Big thanks to Maddy for dropping us to the airport. Then Tuesday was just a day of sitting in planes and walking in terminals where we had the chance.  We were in the centre of the plane so did not even see anything special – but I did have ... Read more >

Flew out of Cologne. Ute and Kerstin dropped us the airport.  Left feeling incredibly spoilt as they looked after us like you would not believe and we had a wonderful time.  Sad to go :(  Landed safely in Edinburgh.  Our car had ... Read more >

Today Kerstin drove us on the autobahn to the Dokumentationsstätte Regierungsbunker that was to be the Parliaments protection from nuclear attack drug the Cold War.  It went 20km underground and was interesting.  Weird having Kerstin ... Read more >

Happy birthday Megan.  Today we went off to a genuine castle called Burg Eltz from the 12th century - not bombed or restored and been in the same family for 33 generations.  It was quite amazing.  Had Bratwurst for lunch before heading ... Read more >

Had a nice sleep in and then brekkie with Kerstin before heading into Cologne. Of course we walked up the cathedral tower (552 steps each way) and had a look around the cathedral treasure and crypt. Then met up with Ute and went walking round the city ... Read more >

Left Paris early and headed via Bruxelles (so Ian got to go to Belgium ever so briefly) to Cologne and then Bonn.  Picked up from the bahnhof by Kerstin and her mum Ute. A bit surreal actually being with Kerstin in Bonn.  Had a lovely afternoon ... Read more >

Decided to check out Potsdam. With our Berliner card we get free travel and tours cheap so we went with the same people as on Monday. Today we had Maria and she was good but no where near as intense as Tarek. The city of Potsdam is famous for being ... Read more >

Headed off to the Pergamon museum for the morning.  This is an amazing museum with life size reconstructions of Pergamon and a number of other early sites. The weather is still beautiful with most days about 26 and great for being outdoors so we ... Read more >

Headed off for a walking tour of Berlin. Our guide, Tarek was great.  Half Egyptian, half German and brought up in the US he was passionate about Berlin and his quote for the day was "Berlin is a city condemned forever to becoming and never ... Read more >

Would have been happy to stay for a while in Munich. But Berlin beckons. Caught another of the very quick trains which did speeds of 200km and then dawdled for bits. The countryside was much less changing than the last trip. It was mainly flat, flat ... Read more >

Went touring again and this time to Neuschwanstein. The tours here are done by train so it's basically just turn up on the day and pop on the train with your guide. This makes them quite cheap - not much more than the train travel itself! Our guide ... Read more >
