  Guten Tag lovely people!   A little catch up on what I was up to in the land of cheap beer, sausages and great museums. I’m back and just about recovered from my trip to Berlin, what a stunning place! It’s not the prettiest city in the world but it’s got some beautiful bits, the river Spree was very atmospheric to walk along in the evenings and Museum Island is a Mecca for history and art nerds like me.
