  1. Hi Jonathan, looks like you had a great trip around Europe. I enjoyed seeing your Berlin pictures very much, it's almost 30 years since I visited there and quite hard to picture now how places relate, so many changes in the intervening years. I'm fine thank you, just seem to have been busy and having a break from blogging (though unplanned). It's shocking how fast the weeks go by and then it's suddenly months since I posted anything.

  2. Hi Lisa, glad you're well. A friend of mine visited West and East Berlin in the late 80s, but I didn't get there until the 2000s. I found it pretty easy to get around since a lot of the landmarks are visible by line of sight (the main train station, parliament, etc.). I also enjoyed my first trip to London as part of the trip, pretty smooth sailing for the most part there. I can identify with being busy. Thanks for your comment.
