Our air travel to Berlin was at 6am Germany time, which implied we were up prior to 5am. Having actually invested the previous mornings at adidas as well as then nights checking out, drinking and eat dark German draft beer we had not had a good deal of sleep. We had the ability to drop our baggage off at the hotel, yet we weren’t able to head to our space up until 3pm – all I wanted was a shower, to place some makeup on and also a set on the hotel bed with their amazing European pillows.

I have found out that traveling in a foreign country is a true test to your mental self, physical self as well as likewise your sense of direction. A great deal of you may currently know this if you have actually been traveling for time. Keep in mind this is just my 3rd overseas journey, so I am still learning all the ropes!

On today we really did not have wi-fi and also I just had a screen-grab of where I considered hotel was – I recognized a basic and also I imply general sense of where our hotel was in relationship to where the heart of Berlin was. Our baggage hand over was brief so we really did not get an opportunity to get a map from the attendant and in this brief moment I just had a possibility to swiftly talk to one of the hotel’s team to direct us towards a hot coffee as well as morning meal. His English wasn’t solid, so I simply caught on to a few words and also strolled in the instructions he was directing. I already understood there was a high opportunity I would obtain us shed, so I was prepared. From what my map screen-grab told me, we were regarding 12kms from the heart of Berlin, and also with us both being so tired I was just going to stroll 1-2km, due to the fact that I recognized I ‘d need to walk that distance back to the hotel.

We got to Alexanderplatz and also could not discover anything to consume! It was so hard – we were running on vacant as we hadn’t consumed since 9pm – suggesting it was virtually 12 hrs given that we had both eaten. We saw a Mcdonalds, we saw a Starbucks and we saw a Hungry Jacks – I imagine this is what seeing a lake on a desert should really feel like. We don’t eat food like this generally, yet when you’re in a foreign country as well as you are concerning to faint, something’s got to offer. We bought and also after that we went to pay and also the individual behind the counter says loudly ‘No worldwide cards’. I could’ve sobbed. I really did not though, I didn’t have the power as well as to weep over Mcdonalds would certainly have simply been all out embarrassing.

For some reason we assumed we ‘d stray about as well as see what else was available, since you recognize, that’s the clever point to do when you’re past starving. We were informed by numerous facilities that they too didn’t take global cards – I would’ve assumed Master Card would be taken anywhere, particularly in worldwide companies. I know just what you’re believing ‘Why don’t you have currency’, however because landing in Germany we struck the ground running and had not had a chance to find an ATM and everywhere else had actually taken our card!

Murphy’s Law I guess!

Some 45 mins later on we discovered a financial institution and also we took out cash for the following couple of days then ran back into Mcdonalds. Okay we walked. I have actually never had a lot of blended emotions in a mouthful of processed food. We also took photos, but they will never surface!
