On Day 12 Janne attended another wedding. I spent the day going through old pictures and organizing on my computer. The evenig was spent in front of some good movies eating a delicious Cookie Dough Ice Cream that her sweet mom had bought for me earlier in the week. Instead of buying one big box of Ice Cream their family buy a small box for each member of the family and write the name on the box so everybody has their own. It completely melted my heart when her mom came home from the grocery store the other day and showed me that she had bought one for me to put in the freezer for whenever I would be in the mood for Ice cream. The sweetest woman! So day 12 was really a relaxed day and most of the last ones will probably be as well!
Day 13 a couple of Janne's friends came over for a game night! We cooked pizza rolls together, Janne's sister makes really delicious ones so she gaves us instructions and we all helped out. After dinner we teamed up and played the board game Activity. After Activity we all decided that we wanted to try the game Cards Over Humanity that Janne's sister just bought. There's a lot of controversity over the game because it can be very offensive. All in all we had a good time, some words in the game were considered a little too offensice but other that that everyone seemed to like it okay and it was a fun night!
 
The sweetest German mommy got me this amazing Cookie Dough Ice Cream!

Day 11 in Germany. We got home really late after taking the bus home from Berlin to Hamburg. After we arrived at the bus station, we were going to take the subway and bus home to Janne. Because of the storm that had been here in Hamburg while we were away, trees had fallen over the train rails, so we had to wait longer than expected for our train. While home I fell straight in to bed and didn't wake up until late. We had decided to use this day to catch up with everything, and just be home! I was able to go through all my Berlin pictures, and also my souvenirs. I love souvenir stores, and I love being a tourist, so of course I had to bring some stuff home from Berlin! I think sending postcards is cute, and that it's a shame that not many people do that anymore. In Berlin, they sell regular postcards but also postcards that are supposed to have a piece of the Berlin Wall attached to them. I love this idea! I don't know for sure if it's a stone from the actual wall, but I thought it's a special thing that you won't see anywhere else so I had to get a few. They of course cost more so I also got a few regular ones as well. The Swedish postal service Postnord also offers to print your pictures if you upload them online and send it as a regular postcard anywhere in the world. I thought that this also sounded like such a fun idea, so I did this as well to a couple of my good friends. Press here if you also are on vacation and want to send a personal postcard.
Moving on to the other items I purchased! I had to have a magnet for my fridge, since Jake and I are new as home owners we find that we sometimes lack things, one of those things are magnets for our to do lists and reminders. When I was in America, I got inspired to buy one from every destination I had seen. I saw a couple who had magnets from every state they've been to, such a fun and cool Idea. So I got my Berlin magnet now! When Janne and I got to see Nashville with our host mom, I bought a picture frame to frame a picture we took together outside of Hard Rock Café. During our trip this time I bought a Berlin one to frame a picture from there. It's a sweet reminder of how lucky I've been to be apart of this journey and to have seen those things. Finally I had to get the sweatshirt saying "I Love Berlin". As a souvenir lover, you just gotta have it!
Do you have a favorite souvenir? Comment below!

Janne and I spent our Tuesday and Wednesday in Berlin! My excitement was beyond words! She had booked bus tickets for us so we could spend one night in Berlin and have two days of sightseeing. It is about a three hour drive to Berlin from Hamburg depending on traffic.The way there took a little longer because we left around nine in the morning when more cars are on the road, while the way home even went faster since we left in the evening. Our first day in Berlin we checked in to our hotel which was Azimut Hotel. The hotel is located close to a shopping street so the decision was made that the first day would be a shopping day and the second one would be our sightseeing day. The funny thing though, after a whole day of walking I had only found a sweatshirt and Janne had not found anything. I guess we aren't a fan of the fall collections cause we usually don't have a problem to find stuff we want to buy, haha!
Wednesday we woke up to the rain pooring in Berlin and we started to think that we had made a huge mistake choosing the first day to walk in stores. Luckily, after running around in the rain looking for our first destination, the rain stopped and we could walk along the East Side Gallery without an umbrella. We were able to catch a lot of the different sightseeing places during our day. Among this we saw what's left of the Berlin Wall, which is the East Side Gallery today, the Museum Island, The Berlin Cathedral, The Reichtag Parliament Building, Berlin Fernsehturm, Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church, Brandenburger Tor and finally the Memorial for the Murdered Jews of Europe. It was a wonderful two days so a huge thank you to Janne for giving me this experience. I am so so grateful, I'm just speechless with gratitude and I will for sure remember this trip till the end of time. Thank you so much!
Brandenburger Tor which has become a symbol for Berlin.
Looked forward to seeing this long before we even started our trip.
So beautiful and simply a must if you visit Berlin.
East Side Gallery, what remains of the Berlin Wall.
The Wall have so many different paintings by so many different artists.
My parhaps favorite painting on the wall. The Berlin Wall should be a reminder that we need to spread love and peace. The Wall was torn down in 1989 with celebration after years of pain. Why would we want to go back in time and build new walls?
Make love not walls.
One of the most popular paintings of the wall.  
One of Janne's favorites!
Propbably the most famous painting from the Wall called "My God, Help Me Survive This Deadly Love".
Loved all the colors of this huge painting.
All pictures of me are taken by Janne and edited by me. Press here to visit her blog.
 
 
So many different paintings, so many different feelings.
 
 
One of the places we ate at was Peter Pane which is a burger restaurant inspired by the fairytale Peter Pan.
They have really nice interior that's supposed to remind you of Neverland, and on the restrooms they even play the fairytale in the speakers
Here you can get the menu in English and it looks like a storybook! I loved my avocado burger.
The gorgeous Berlin Cathedral.   
Berlin Fernsehturm
Memorial for the Murdered Jews of Europe.
Also known as The Holocaust Memorial.
Many feelings here and I feel like a moment of silence is in order.
