Berlin is a wonderful city with a ton of energy, great food, and lots to see. Unfortunately it’s also a sad place to explore since many of the sites revolve around the war and the horrible things that took place in the area.

We balanced the sad (but educational) museums with evenings partying with Berlin’s young and energetic nightlife.

The Berlin Zoo is oneΒ of the best in the world! The animals had great spaces, lots of areas with no fences or walls, and most seemed very active.
