Berlin, Germany

Anyway, enough of that whinging. (Except to say: 6 days until I meet up with my sister, brother-in-law, and Mum in Paris!) I'm posting full photo albums on Facebook, but I thought I might select some favourites to post on my blog too.

I started my trip in Berlin. Disclaimers:
  • I'm really out of practice with my photography
  • I'm not very good at using Photoshop either (but I learn fast)
  • The sky was very grey in Berlin
  • I got snow and rain on my lens, and tried to clean it with a tissue, for God's sake. What an idiot!
With that out of the way, here are some photos:

Desperately envious of your travels, and have ventured over to twitter to hear the latest on occasion.

As great as it is to travel solo, I do appreciate the comforts of a travel companion. After a while, you wish you could just nod off for a moment on the train without worrying, or go halves in some rich and decadent food you don't have the room to stomach all yourself. It can just get a little draining.

Congratulations on finishing. I'm so pleased you've had the chance to escape to another world for some time. I hope the move south goes well when you return and the transition back to work is a smooth one.

Good luck and happy travels.

Great photos! I've never been to Berlin so it's fascinating to see it in candid photos. Well done on becoming a doctor too! :)

Schloss charlottenburg is a amazing palace, I think this is the only palace which has not been destroyed during the war, I have impressed by its rooms which is as it is as they were earlier, the view of the lake bordering Berlin river and the garden is really worth see.
