I've been to Berlin a shocking number of times - The Other Half estimates 25 since 2005 - and in recent years it's become a staycation for me, just chilling out and doing little on a week off work.
We come to Berlin the first week of December every year for shopping, Christmas markets and to get in the mood for Christmas. Bit of a tradition now. But this year I have little shopping to do, and want to get visiting cultural things again, galleries and museums. It's a long time since I've been a tourist in this city, in lots of ways.
We arrived yesterday afternoon and I thought I'd do a mini-report. It won't be a blow-by-blow account as we have friends here and nobody wants to read about me going out and drinking beer :) But I hope that by doing this it will open my eyes again to this wonderful city.
