Today was a late start with a train journey to Potsdam, we arrived with no idea where things were or what to do so decided to do a tour (our first for the trip). The tour provided headphones for your spoken language though we felt we missed out on a lot of information as the guide spoke a lot more than our headphones gave us so that was disappointing but we visited the largest summer palace in Europe and other amazing historical palaces, it was a 2.5 hour tour and of course only gave a quick overview of things to do in this beautiful relatively new city (only 300 years old). We got to see the palace where president Truman made the decision to drop the bomb on Hiroshima and where the iron curtain and Cold War began. It's a place I would like to go back and spend the day if we get the chance. A massive park called San soucci would be a beautiful bike ride but gees it was the coldest day we've experienced so far with the wind tearing through us brrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. We made our way back to Berlin to gather our things from the hotels storage and head to the station to wait for our midnight journey to Stockholm, it is with surprise sadness that we leave Germany, it's been an amazing start to our trip and I'm glad I've done it with Trent because Germany is not somewhere that I particularly wanted to visit, I have been surprised by how much I like it. We have a 4.5 hour wait at the station so we found the most comfortable booth at the 24h McDonald's and settle in for the night, we finally make our way to the platform in the freezing cold to learn the train is delayed by 30 minutes so our 1230 departure was but a dream so 30 minutes of waiting in the brrrrr we were ecstatic to get on the nice warm train (though we had a panic when the train said it was going to Amsterdam not koberhavn like we were expecting, after pouncing on the first inspector to ask a million questions it was explained that the train was splitting during the journey, phew) we made our way to our first class sleeper (the joys of eurail pass) it was like a mini hotel room, very comfortable and our attendant offering a welcome glass of champagne which we readily accepted (a girl could get use to this) we got in our jarmies and snuggled in for a nights rest.
