After the Wonderland event I knew we deserved some time off from all the hectic promotions, late nights, and early mornings.
Why not a little weekend get away to one of Europe's most artistic and exiting cities - Berlin.
With creative street art on every corner, important history, inspiring botiques, galleries, bars, and cafes. You will never get bored in Berlin. We certainly didn't!
After landing late on Thursday night we decided to hit the Berlin club scene straight away. After a few lounges and bars we ended up at an underground dancehall/soul club (don't ask me how...).
We spent the night hanging out with jamaican rasta's, Jeru The Damaja, and Mr JD.
We were jammin' all night long. All I can say is "Thank god there are no pictures" ;)
In the morning I woke up pleasantly surprised with no hangover. We raided the breakfast buffet, grabbed our stuff, and started walking.... walking....and walking. We did a lot of walking through out our Berlin trip, but more about that later.
Our first stop was the Berliner Dome and the Berlin Historical Museum.

|This dress was made out of magazine clippings - AWESOME!|
Of course I always have to be a nerd and get the information phones.
After a few hours of culture we had to satisfy our stomachs needs so we headed to 'HEat', which was right next to the museum.

|A classic german schnitzel of course!|
Our hotel was right next to the Berlin's famous TV tower. This was very useful since I love exploring cities by foot (the only way to get to know the 'real' city). Where ever I was in the city, I could just walk towards the tower all the way back to the hotel.
I could browse through the cities little alleyways filled with galleries, boutiques, and the traditional german shops all day long - but my feet could only take so much. More exploring would have to happen the next day potentially with a pair of comfortable shoes.
