I've only been to Berlin one time before back in 2009 and I feel like both experiences were so drastically different, but both pretty damn awesome.
The first time around I was traveling with my family in the middle of the summer, so the museums and memorials were filled to the brim with tourists. This time I traveled with a good number of co-workers in the middle of the winter so the streets were pretty barren and covered in snow and ice. We didn't have much time to explore the outskirts of the city, but we really got to know Mitte, the neighborhood we were working and staying in when we weren't heads down in workshops and meetings. Or stuffing my face with wienerschnitzel and beer. But now I'm so, so glad to be home and ready to enjoy this three-day weekend. Tchüß, Berlin!
