On the first day we danced until dawn so we started our second day a little bit later than usual. The sun was shining and it was pretty damn hot. We took the U-bahn to Prenzlauer berg and explored the area.
Anne saluted the sun
We met this great little fellow!
Ewa made some pictures with her analogue camera, can’t wait to see!
Checking out the market at Maybachufer
After walking around for a bit we landed at the cinema café and had some really nice ginger tea. We played a game of Bonanza here (Anne won).
Beautiful Ewa in the wind
We went to Warschauer Strasse because we heard there was some kind of love parade.
Always happy Myriam
Ewa and Myriam
And there was a parade indeed! There were several cars or busses driving by with music and people dancing around them.
I was a little bit overwhelmed by the crowd
We decided to leave the parade, find ourselves a nice spot at a Vietnamese shop and had some very cheap and nice food.
One moment you’re in the Netherlands and the next moment you’re in a car driving to Berlin for the second time this year! Anne’s parents are in Indonesia on vacation and had an available car. Together with Ewa and Myriam we drove to Anne’s hometown Berlin and spend the weekend.
Preparing for our first day
The weather was incredibly nice
Probably the subway station we visited most: warschauer straße
Ewa and Myriam had a twin-theme going on this weekend
Waiting for the S-bahn that would take us to tempelhof
I’d never been to the tempelhof area. Really strange to have such a spacious place in the middle of the city. We just sat there and played Bonanza.
I have tons of back-photos as I’m usually kind of slow, but on occasion I run a few meters to capture these cuties from the front.
Then we did this! Ever since I saw that you could canoe on the Spree, I wanted to do that. And although we only went for an hour -thus didn’t see that much- it was awesome. Maybe I’ll do it again another time to see a little bit more.
Time to go home and get ready for the night. And during the nights there are no cameras allowed so that was it for day one!
The last day!
Jabba the cat stayed with us during the night
Michiel enjoyed the hot tub
Timo’s hair looks like a rockstar in the morning
Lisa & Timo tried out the sauna and cooled down on the trampoline. Now it was time to go home.
On our second day we biked to Marken, a small town which used to be an island in the Zuiderzee. It is now a peninsula in the Markermeer. It is very popular amongst tourists because of the wooden houses and traditional costumes. None of us ever visited Marken before so we it was time for some tourist action! But first…
