Berlin

With my family here to see us in London we decided to take some trips in Europe. January may not be the ideal weather to visit Europe, but you can be sure it isn’t peak holiday season. My sister really wanted to go to Berlin, and having never been there before thought it’d be fun. It’s an artsy city with a lot of history that is definitely worth exploring.

This is a city that has been through a lot in recent history. If you’re interested in WWII and the post-war events, I would definitely visit Berlin.
