I had just few hours to visit Berlin, and not getting the map with us was a great mistake. We wandered for 2 hours around the Potsdamer Platz, without being aware that we were just 1 km away from Branderburg Gate. Fortunately pieces of the Berlin Wall were all over the place covered in graffiti, showed as pieces of art, so I can say I saw the infamous wall. It had also snowed and it looked like it was going to rain soon, definitely not the perfect weather condition for a long walk in high heels, but I discovered these Zign wedge boots to be more comfortable than a pair of ballerinas. Anyway I'll have to go back in Berlin in Spring and have a weekend just planned for tourism. But I couldn't leave Berlin without seeing some of the most important sites, so on my way back to the hotel after the Hugo Boss Party I asked the courtesy car to drive me around the city for a bit, just to see the Branderburg Gate, the Spree river and the Fernsehturm. The driver was so nice, he started talking about how New Year's eve is a great celebration in the city, what are the places I should visit next time and what is the typical food I should order at the restaurants.
