Berlin Day 3: Hanging Out With Maria

My last day in Berlin was spent hanging out with Maria, the writer of the blog Deus Ex Machina. It was really great meeting her, and I also met her boyfriend Boris but he was busy on the Saturday that me and Maria hung out together. She wrote her own blog post about meeting me [here].

Because it's taken me nearly a year to write up my post, I've kind of forgotten a lot of what we did. I know that we traveled to Potsdamer Platz, and we visited the Jewish Memorial. I also bought some nice postcards to send to friends.

Brandenburg Gate

Adlon Hotel, where Michael Jackson hung his baby from the balcony (remember that?). I'm not a fan of Jackson, but Maria pointed this fact out to me.

Towards the East Side Gallery. We had to sit down because I stupidly hurt my ankle on a dip in the road. My ankle was still very tender from when I twisted it in Rome, and I thought I had really hurt it again. Luckily, I could hobble around still.

While we were sitting down I got to take a few photos!

Alexanderplatz TV Tower
We sat under this and I ate currywurst while Maria ate noodles. I also got to eat her noodles when she got full :P

I really enjoyed my day out with Maria, even though I hurt my ankle. I loved talking about her life in different countries, especially Berlin. I was so thankful of her German skills, she even ordered my currywurst for me because I was too shy.
I love meeting friends from other countries. I had to explain to Maria about jaywalking, and I'm sure Maria had to explain German things to me :) It was nice to be able to talk to someone, because my trip was very much lonely. I hope to see Maria and her boyfriend, Boris, again in the future!

The next day I left for the UK, which took a very long time to travel to via train.

It's great that you were able to see one of your blog mates :) I'm sure you had a lot in common and had interesting talks.
That Jewish memorial is huge!
