Bye to Berlin

May 31, 2013

Thursday, May 30, 2013

This morning we started our journey back to Berlin and what a journey it has been. Absolutely amazing. An experience of a lifetime to see and do all that we have done on this whole  4 1/2 week trip. WE stopped in Dresden, Germany for the latter half of the morning and  thought this city was very beautiful. It was pretty much flattened by the allied bombing in February, 1945 but has been beautifully restored to its original baroque splendor. Unfortunately it was raining while we were here but we still enjoyed touring around and ate a bratwurst sitting outside under cover of an awning and warmed up from the dampness by a heater. We arrived back in Berlin about 3:30 pm. Trevor said Berlin is his favourite city and truly it is incredible with all the history here. Tonight was our farewell dinner and we were bused across the city to a great little restaurant and had a great meal with as many beverages as you wanted included. Great music too. I can’t believe I ordered the traditional Pig’s Knuckle with sauerkraut meal.. looked terrible but it was actually very good!! The party wound up by 9:00 pm and back to the hotel with lots of sad farewells..I hate saying goodbye! Tomorrow up at 4:00 am to head to the airport and HOME…back to reality….and lots of hugs with those we love.
