A Vacation in Berlin, Germany

You might have wondered why I have not posted anything at the blog lately. The reason is that I have been away, on vacation.

I have spent a week in Berlin, Germany, with my wife and kids. We stayed in Abba hotel, at Lietzenburger Street, which is situated just 2 minutes walk from Kurfurstendamm, one of Berlin’s most famous streets, where you can find many shops and malls.

Berlin offers a lot of attractions for tourists, and one week is certainly not enough. There are many historical places, museums, parks, malls, beautiful streets, restaurants and coffee shops. You can find malls and shops in every city in the world, but it looks, as if in Berlin their number is greater, than in any other place. There are more expensive malls like KaDeWe and Galeria Kaufhof, or less expensive, like C&A. You can find in Berlin everything you want. It is a feast for people who love shopping.

It was more than just a trip to Berlin. It was a family vacation. You know how it is with adolescent children nowadays. They are busy with their friends, television, the computer and Facebook, and have no time for their parents. When you travel with them, it is a good time for bonding. They have no choice, but to be with their parents, talk, and spend time with them.
