Last weekend my boyfriend and I flew to visit his sister who lives in Berlin. I’ve never been to Berlin before, let alone Germany, so I was very excited to go. We only planned to be there for 3 days and 3 nights because we didn’t have too much time, my boyfriend had to be back at work/school, but we definitely made the most of it. On the first day we visited the center of the city (although there are many centers because Berlin is a huge city) but we decided to go by the memorials, statues and make our way to Fredrichstrasse (I’m not sure if I’m spelling it right I’m sorry!) That is the main street where there are a lot of stores and restaurants. I discovered the store “And Other Stories” which is HM’s sister company also related to COS ๐Ÿ™‚ I must say I loved their clothes especially the new swimsuits but the price points were really high – almost like those of COS and I was sure it was going to be cheaper. After that we took the subway to Alexanderplatz which is another shopping center and the home of Primark! Never been to Primark before and I’ve heard so many things about it from other bloggers and people who visit Europe. I have to say, we went there on a Saturday so it was completely packed with people and I didn’t love it so much. Everything there looked pretty cheap- stuff you can find at Target and TJ Maxx in the states although I guess their prices are really low so it is a good deal. Pascal, my boyfriend, ended up doing most of the shopping- I just bought a pair of nerdy glasses for 3 euros ๐Ÿ™‚

On the second day, it was a Sunday, so we decided to visit the famous Mauerpark- definitely the highlight of my trip! Mauerpark is like the flea market of Berlin, but it also feels a bit like a festival because there are many amazing food trucks and performances on the grass by really talented singers/musicians. I absolutely loved the atmosphere, and the shopping there is great, too! So many cool vintage finds. On the last day, we decided to visit the Berlin Wall, but of course it started raining on us. We took the subway there and had to run through the streets in order not to get soaking wet. I was able to get one good photo there as you can see above:) Then we took cover in a local cafe which was so cute! Distrikt Cafe, its called, if you’re ever in Berlin you should definitely visit there. Finally, we made our way to another shopping area where there was a huge Nike store and I ended up finding the shoes I’ve been looking for everywhere – the Cortez sneaker in blue and red, and they were on sale for 68 euros! How cool is that:) All in all, I absolutely loved our trip to Berlin. Although it was pretty short, it was fun to visit Pascal’s sister and we did get a lot into the few days that we were there. Stay tuned for a Youtube video next where I show you all the shopping I did in the states and Berlin:) Until next time, xx Karen
