So it has taken me a while to write this post, BUT here we go:
Copenhagen was lots of fun. I forgot my camera everywhere I went, so that kind of sucked, but it was really interesting and a great time. On Wednesday, right after I got there, Brett and I made dinner, then went to a bar to watch the soccer game. Bar hopped a little, and then had a great shwarma snack (see pattern of trip). The next day, I went into the city and explored/got lost a little, until I turned up in this square, looked up, and there was Brett. So then he showed me around a tiny bit, we tried to go to the carlsberg factory, but unfortunately it was closed, so we went and grabbed dinner, then it was off to a club. Now this club, one of the most interesting clubs I have ever been to, was really not a club. It was an awkward bar. Very awkward. With some dancing downstairs. There were just dicks and vaginas, yes, private parts, as decorations. It was super uncomfortable. Could not even think about it. Even the bathroom toilet/sink/hand dryer was spray painted with these decorations. Just trying to mental block that out now. The end.
The next day, Brett and I flew in to Berlin, meeting up with Ande, Erin, and Kate. We got in to the hostel, I was separated by rooms from the group, so we all got ready independently (in my mind - really they got ready together and I just was downstairs) and then it was off to grab a bite to eat before the pub crawl. Now the pub crawl, very interesting. Ask me about it, cause the details are just silly when it comes to learning that we can take drinks with us out on the street, and lets be real, the night is going to be nuts when the first (really second) drink we had was a jager bomb. So fast forward to the end of the pub crawl, after making friends with a shit ton of americans/most of the group/everyone that was in our hostel, we ended up at this club. It was kinda indie with a separate downstairs dance floor playing (good) music, and the upstairs floor playing weird/top 40 mixed stuff. It was a lot of fun dancing around. There was lots of space downstairs so I loved it. Ended up making friends there and going to an American diner with this group of German guys. Was absolutely hilarious. Then we slept for a few hours, and we were up and at it again! Woke up just in time for a four hour walking tour! It was probably a little longer than four hours, but it went by relatively quickly - other than being the second most cold in my life - wales is first. We got to see so many awesome sites! Really made me understand what Berlin and Germany is all about today. So much history. See attached pictures of the group of us outside some large pretty building (um yeah i forgot the name), the music square, and the Berlin wall. After the walking tour, we took a quick beer break to warm up, then went to dinner at this nice German restaurant. IT WAS AMAZING. By far the best meal I ate all vacation. Then we got ready, and it was off to another night on the town. We tried to get into Watergate, it didn’t really work, so we randomly found our walking tour friends in line as well, and decided to all go to a bar next door. Hung out there a bit, some of the girls went back to the club, but I ended up just going back. It had been a long few days. I wish I summed up the energy to hit the club, but at 4am it just was not happening. The next day, we went to the Jewish Museum. It was really cool, super interactive, and told a lot of personal stories. After feeling dead from a crazy weekend, we headed back, grabbed our things, headed off to the airport. Vacation over. One of the craziest weekends ever, but definitely worthwhile. Now on to Sweden next…
