Returning Home, or Multiple Levels of Dante’s Hell

This is the final post (#24) of our Dublin-Berlin trip, for Friday, September 27, 2018. Why is this photo taken at night?  Because after a night of interrupted sleep, at 5:30 a.m. I say to Dave, "Ready to give up?"  He is, so we are out the door by 7:15 a.m. We take the Metro… Continue reading Returning Home, or Multiple Levels of Dante’s Hell

Last Looks at Berlin • Part 2

This is post #23 of our Dublin-Berlin trip, for Thursday, September 27, 2018. Dave returns, and he hasn't had lunch, so we re-trace our steps to the Galerie Lafayette because, as I told him, there are so many choices!  Even though it was only about 90 minutes after my visit, most all of that abundance… Continue reading Last Looks at Berlin • Part 2

Last Looks at Berlin • Part 1

This is post #22 of our Dublin-Berlin trip, for Thursday, September 27, 2018. Okay, what day is it?  Oh, yes.  Our last day in Berlin.  Dave's conference finishes at noon, so technically I have a half day.  I note in my travel journal: "Two things to see today and I only did one of them:… Continue reading Last Looks at Berlin • Part 1

From the 100 Bus to Bebelplatz

This is (long) post #21 of our Dublin-Berlin trip, for Wednesday, September 26, 2018. My travel diary proclaims: "Today is Ride the 100-Bus Day." Downstairs in the hotel lobby, I confer with the concierge about which way to head, which stop to get off.  I've taken to making a screen shot of the directions from… Continue reading From the 100 Bus to Bebelplatz

Can you believe it? More Berlin Museums

This is post #20 of our Dublin-Berlin trip, for Tuesday, September 25, 2018. Day Three of the Three Day Museum Pass, and thankfully, a night's rest really helped in the Feeling Better Department.  I'm taking no chances today, and have decided to limit my eating (it's also hard to manage on a 7-up and crackers… Continue reading Can you believe it? More Berlin Museums

More Museums and Exhausted Tourist

This is post #19 of our Dublin-Berlin trip, for Monday, September 24, 2018. The museum passes we'd purchased were good for three days, and even though I was pretty tired of being on the go for a week-plus, like a good little tourist, I headed out to explore more art and spacious buildings and see… Continue reading More Museums and Exhausted Tourist

Museum Island • Berlin

This is post #18 of our Dublin-Berlin trip, for Sunday, September 23, 2018. I've been on this trip so long, I decided I'd better start making an Instagram marker, just so I'd know what day it was and what the date was.  But today has been set aside as Museum Day, and it's raining raining… Continue reading Museum Island • Berlin

East Side Gallery • Berlin Wall

This is post #17 of our Dublin-Berlin trip, for Saturday, September 22, 2018 (part 2). Cool tourist. Another cool tourist, in front of a toxic waste wall panel. The panels of the wall were painted shortly after the wall came down, and as The East Side Gallery website notes, they: "are for the joy of… Continue reading East Side Gallery • Berlin Wall

Saturday: Chores, then Berlin Wall

This is post #16 of our Dublin-Berlin trip, for Saturday, September 22, 2018 (part 1 of 2 parts). Self-explanatory. But this time, Dave came along to keep me company and he worked on revising his portions of the document they were working on. Afterwards, we walked up to the Bibimbap Stand, but because it was… Continue reading Saturday: Chores, then Berlin Wall
