"You are crazy, my child. You must go to Berlin."

That quote was above was said by Franz von Suppe a composer during the late 18th and early 19th century - but boy, do those words still apply, you must go to Berlin.  It is a wonderful and beautiful city, filled with so much to do!  Though Berlin was a bit off of our beaten path, I had it in my head that we must visit.  Because our schedule was so jammed packed, we were only in Berlin for 36 hours. We didn't have a guide book at this point, so we walked as much as we could, wandered through the Tiergarten, ate lots of currywurst, and even rented bikes (don't laugh at pictures of me in my helmet! Safety first!).
