This is Monica J. your favorite Travel Blogger. Nikki asked me to share my new-found love of travel with you. Here are some of my notes from my Berlin trip. Enjoy! (For entertainment purposes only)
So, this was not a paid assignment at all. My uncle who lives in Berlin was getting married for the third time. No judgement. Honestly, I was surprised to get the phone invite because he and my father had a row, which is the word for argument across the pond. My uncle called to see if I was rsvping or not. For whatever reason, he wanted to stress the fact to me that we were still family. I appreciated the sentiment. I was slightly embarrassed by the fact that I didn’t have the money to go to the wedding. My uncle offered to pay for my airline ticket. Needless to say, I didn’t refuse. Luckily, two of my co-workers were able to cover my shifts on such short notice. I never got the actual invitation in the mail.
Anne was staying at the Park Inn for the weekend in the “Alex”. The Alex is a major transportation hub in Berlin equipped with trains, stores and other tourist attractions. Of course, there had to be a McDonald’s, so we grabbed a bite for dinner.
I felt so blessed after seeing Berlin and Anne. Big thanks to my uncle. Hopefully, there’s more to come.
