Wonderful, Wonderful Copenhagen!

Even  though I am horrified at the videos that appear online of people lamping each other in Asda for a cut price TV, the one good thing I found about Black Friday last year was the Ryanair £4 flight deals. FOUR QUID. Mate, that’s outrageous. So on a whim, I booked return flights for me and my best mate to Copenhagen for a little post-panto break.

BERLIN Part Two- “I take thee, Berlin, for better or for WURST.”

Having awoken with slightly sore and fuzzy heads, we threw back the curtains to find Berlin bathed in beautiful winter sunshine, with the sun gleaming off the snow topped streets. After a hearty breakfast of melty cheesy croissants and strong coffee in our trusty hostel we slung rucksacks on our backs and cameras round our necks and galloped out for a spot of sightseeing. Taking a leisurely amble down Friedrichstrasse, Berlin’s theatre district, we gazed in delight at horse drawn  ...
