BERLIN. This city was a rather “gray” one-not that it was any less interesting, it’s just that the rainy weather and atmosphere was more solemn. Still, we visited many good historic sights and had some delicious food.

The Berlin wall and Holocaust museum was an eye-opener, you could feel an emotional pang as you walked through the paths. We also managed to have a good brunch at Distrikt Coffee, impressive korean food at Yam Yam, and finally had the famous German pork knuckle at Hofbrau.

We had to spend an extra day in Berlin due to the unfortunate situation in Brussels, as Brussels was our next destination. It was sad news for everyone that day, and my heart goes out them.. It puts us into perspective on how everything can change in a second, and to never take things for granted. I really Thank the Lord for always watching over us, and pray for strength to guide everyone affected by it.

Thankfully, we managed to get a refund on all our flights, train tickets, and accommodations for the Brussels trip, and managed to get onto the train to Amsterdam the following day. Shall be posting my last Easter break post on Amsterdam next time!
