It was a busy August with even more of our dear friends coming to visit us in Berlin. Niko, Gina & Sophia had a layover on their way from Greece back to New Jersey, so we met at one of our favorite biergartens in the Tiergarten for dinner & catching up.
Abby flew all the way from New York for a quick 4-day visit, so we had to fit everything in: bike riding all over city, David Bowie exhibit where we had our faces tattooed (see post), dinners out, visits to the Berlin Wall and chilly afternoons in the park with rosé.
Michelle & I started taking annual trips together a few years back, and this year she hopped over to Berlin from London to visit & meet Thomas. We got back on our trusty bikes (see a theme here?), met Raimond & Stefan for dinner, spent a lazy afternoon touring Berlin’s canals by boat and sauntered through some of Berlin’s great flea markets & sights.
Thanks to all our friends who’ve been able to come all the way to Berlin to visit. We have loved having you!!
We’ve been lucky to have quite a few friends & family members come visit, which is wonderful because we love sharing our new (temporary) home with others. Frank & Louis came to Berlin from Cologne and we met up with them at a lovely Friday night picnic. It was another beautiful Berlin weekend, so we met up at the Tiergarten and strolled through a flohmarkt, the park and discovered one of the cutest biergartens in all of Berlin.
We’ve seen Raimond a handful of times, and were able to spend the weekend with him & Stefan brunching, shopping & sightseeing. My friend Taleah came from New York, and we used her visit as a good reason to be a tourist in our own town too, going to museums, parks and restaurants we hadn’t discovered yet.
Thomas’s sister Susanne came from Essen so we biked all over town, showing her our favorite flohmärkte and parks. And of course, we have Alexandra, Ben & Christian who we see nearly every week. We’ve loved spending Saturday nights at their See House, grilling and enjoying the beautiful Berlin summer weather.
