Berlin ist eine Reise wert!

A friend of mine called first thing this morning, and asked if I fancied accompanying him on a trip to Berlin. His previous travel companion had had to cancel, and now he had an extra train ticket going spare. I thought about it for a split second, but really, what was there to think about? Woo-hoo, I'm going to hit the road again!

I'll be in Berlin from the 17th till the 21st.

The next call was from Diageo. They gave me a thorough grilling over the phone, then ended the interview by inviting me up to Amsterdam to take part in the next stage: an assessment round (IQ tests and role play). Looks like this is going to be one of those lengthy application processes...

Well, my travelling companion has been very diligent in listing all the sites he wants to go and see:

- Bodemuseum
- Neue Nationalgalerie
- Gedankstatte Berliner Mauer
- Rathaus Schoneberg
- Hufeisensiedlung
- Schloss Bellevue
- Funkturm?

while I have only thought of perhaps paying a visit to the Filmmuseum in the Sony Center...mostly I just want to wander round the shops and relax a bit; so I'm sure I'll have plenty of time to come and meet you.

We're set to arrive on the 17:17 train on the 17th (Hauptbahnhof), and then we'll make our way to our respective hotels. His was fully booked so I'm now booked into the Generator on Storkower St, which claims to be a 'fantastic funky hostel with a great design' -- but most importantly, it offers 24 hr Internet access!
