Day 19

Prague to Berlin

sunny 14 °C
View Europe with a bit of Asian twist on Szufan's travel map.

Germany was probably one of the few countries that phil actually looked forward to visiting. I think it was because he was proud to be a “part” German. ? And I must say, when we stopped in Dresden it did not disappoint. It was tidy and as it was a clear and fine Sunday morning it gave a nice calm and relax feeling. Nice first impression of Germany.

We couldn’t decide on the food options because they were simply too many but they all provided similar European food. I missed Asian food and was excited to see a Sushi bar but it wasn’t open for business yet... what a shame. Canadian burgers were our final decision and I picked a Salmon burger which had slices of melon and tomatoes in it. Interesting taste but yummy. Phil just had a boring Cheeseburger which didn’t seem to be filling enough for him.
After Dresden we headed towards the Capital of Germany - Berlin. We were given a driving tour but there were a few road closure so we missed a few attraction spots ?. It wasn’t until later we learned that it was because of the Turkish president staying in Town and also an upcoming celebration of Reunion of Germany that many roads were closed.

The restaurant we had for dinner was fantastic. It had a great vibe and live band music with dance floors filled with people. It was also a huge place. Food again was absolutely delicious. We had a sort of creamy potato soup as entree, followed by a gigantic pork knuckle with loads of meat and tasty cracking. I couldn’t name the dessert but it was small pieces of cake with cream. ??????
Due to Oktoberfest, beer was like a must-have. Phil and most others had almost 2 litres of beer. On the way home our tour leader, Rhiannon turned herself into a DJ playing party music when nearly everyone on the bus singing along (quite loudly I must add). Even our bus driver, Marek, joining in and was flickering the overhead lights and got the mood up even higher. What a night!
