Yesterday we moved into our new apartment. The hotel was great, but it feels SO good to be in our own place. The apartment is located in Steglitz (an area in Berlin, but a bit south of the main attractions) and is only about a 5-10 walk to the U-Bahn and S-Bahn station at Rathaus Steglitz. In it’s description the apartment was described as a 1.5 room place and looked a little small from pictures so we were expecting teeny-tiny, but it’s actually a lot more spacious than anticipated. There is a long hallway that leads to a kitchen (with adjoining patio), a small bathroom and then a relatively large sleeping/living room. The place is furnished, almost entirely with Ikea goods, and has a homey feel. We’re loving it thus far!
After taking the day yesterday to settle in, we decided today would be a good day to explore our new city. We took the sites at the Branderburg Tor, Reichstag, Unter den Linden, Alexanderplatz and Viktoriapark in Kreuzberg. We’re taking a much need rest at home now, but are going to try and see if we can hit up a bar for “American Football” later this evening. We’ll keep you posted on whether we’re successful in our search!
Much love and GO PACK GO! (Patriots too I guess…)
