Germany tidbits

by | Mar 31, 2009 | Travel

If you have never flown into Berlin, be prepared to go through passport control upon exiting the plane, like, 50 feet after getting off the plane. Interestingly, each gate has it’s own baggage claim and passport area.

Daylight Savings Time occurs later in Europe than it does over here, so when you only have 44 hours in a place, try not to book an early morning flight right after the time changes. So, make that 43 hours.

Apparently, Obama has influenced some things in Berlin, like this “Yes We Can” alcoholic drink featuring Tenneesee Whiskey.

I knew the trip was going to be awesome when we saw our friend’s car…

our friend's car... LOVE it.

An orange Audi! Let me tell you, it was never hard to spot where we were parked, especially since most people seem to drive black cars here.

And what was the first thing I consumed in Germany? A beer. Of course.

the first thing I drank when I got off the plane - of course!
