Berlin // 18

Two pretty cool things have happened last month.
1. I went to Berlin
2. I turned 18!
 If you check out my post from my 17th birthday, I spent the week in France doing work experience, this year I was on an A-level history trip. Nonetheless, these birthday vacations (if that's what you want to call them) should become an annual thing.

First up: Berlin.
We managed to squeeze so much seeing and learning into 3 days. The Jewish museum, Bundestag (Parliament), The Philharmonic Orchestra, Sachsenhausen (a WW2 concentration camp) and a 4 hour walking tour of Berlin, including a visit to the Berlin Wall. I'd definitely recommend visiting Berlin to all A-level historians, as well as anyone who is simply interested in the city and its history.

This my friends is the Berlin Wall

Next: My 18th birthday!
In short, I'm now 18.
I spent my actual birthday with my family, doing typical birthday things and then repeated it again on Monday night at dinner with my friends. Both restaurants (Wahaca & Cabana) were so beautifully decorated, I'd definitely recommend them if you're looking for some good Mexican or Brazilian food. Plus I got a (stuffed) kitten. I also received some pretty amazing presents, so expect a review or two in the upcoming weeks.
