Last week, I announced that I’d be taking Travel Rinse Repeat overseas for the first time when I visit the Greek Islands this summer. It has been something I’ve always wanted to do since day one of starting this blog, and as I mentioned before, you’ll be seeing more international travel here in the future.
I also made note of how the Greek Islands weren’t the only place I’d be visiting in Europe. I’m also stopping a major European capital city en route to Greece.
I’M GOING TO BERLIN!
Since I was passing through anyways, I decided to stay a couple days and take advantage of being in the city.
This won’t be my first visit to Berlin. In 2008, I was in the city as part of a larger tour through Europe. It was absolutely one of my favorite cities that I visited in Europe and I’m happy to be headed back. It is such an incredible city with a really unique mix of recent history and cutting edge trends.
Also, I’m a big fan of Cold War History, and Berlin was ground zero for so much of what happened between the Americans and the Soviets after World War II.
I’ve always had a love for all things German – the food, the beer, the architecture – it’s one of my favorite cultures in the world, and I’ll always jump at the opportunity to experience it again.
But that’s not all, I have many other exciting trips in the works. I have plenty more weekend trips around the US coming up (Nashville, Orange County, and Austin are all in the works) and additional international trips will also be announced within the coming weeks and months, so stay tuned!
As always, I announced this trip on facebook first. If you want to stay up to date with where I’m headed next, as well as get additional content such as photos, tips, and links that I don’t share here, make sure you like my Facebook fan page.
