Place 13 – Day 3: Berlin – Brandenburg Tor, Reichstag, Checkpoint Charlie & Nosebleed

We visited Checkpoint Charlie today and read all of the information surrounding it, which also included information about the division of West Germany (UK, US & French sectors). 

Before we arrived at Checkpoint Charlie, we popped to look at the Brandenburg tor and then the Reichstag building, which we could have gone in but had to go to another building and register with ID, but Kim had none. There wasn’t really anything to see inside anyway! 

Then, we walked towards Checkpoint Charlie, but stopped at Dunkin’ Donuts first for a light snack. The owner there was very rude to customers and staff and it took ages to get our drinks. It was an interesting experience for sure! 

We popped to the Berlin Mall and Kim went down a slide that was in there. Curtis then decided to get a nosebleed and had to go into a paid WC without paying to get tissue… The attendants didn’t like that, but it was an emergency!!! 

We arrived at Checkpoint Charlie and were going to meet Josh to say goodbye as we won’t see him until we’re in the US, but he got lost so didn’t come and see us. 

We walked around Checkpoint Charlie and read all of the information surrounding it as described in the first paragraph. This was very interesting and informative! 

We then made are way home and purchased a frozen pizza for dinner as it is very healthy…

We had a nice long conversation with our host about Germany, politics, German pasts and his family as well as house prices and wages… All kinds of topics! 

We finished the night with a vodka and orange each and then we sat and watched some TV before heading to bed! 

We leave Berlin tomorrow night, but still have some things to see during the day! 

Auf Wiedersehen!
