During their visit, the big trip we had panned was to visit Berlin with Deron, Tina and Brandi. We spent several hours planning out where we wanted to see and were ready for everything! Except the rain.

Although the rain made some of our pictures a little blurry and our heads wet, we had a great time visiting sights in Berlin we have been reading about for years.

Day one we visited Checkpoint Charlie, the Berlin Opera House, and we had dinner at a great "all Chocolate" restaurant that came highly recommended.

Berlin’s hop on-off bus was a great way to see sights and then figure out which ones you could see, and in which order. Day two we took the bus and had lunch at the famous German department store, KaDeWe. After lunch we walked to the Holocaust Memorial and the Brandenburg Gate.

We also saw the Berlin Cathedral and visited Museum Island, where the New and Old Museums are located.

Another really cool sight was the Emperor Wilhelm Church, which was actually very close to our hotel. We had a great time in Berlin with some great friends!
