For my third trip this year I went to Berlin to visit a friend of mine who was, at the time, studying there. This was my third time in Berlin and I really like the city, but at the same time I will admit that it will be awhile before I go back again.
But, even though this was my third time in Berlin I was not bored at all. Berlin is such an amazing city and since my friend lived there at the time she knew where to find the good local restaurants and parks, so I did not feel like a tourist at all.
Of course, we also went shopping, visited attractions, partied and went to a big outdoor event where we saw the German national football team play in the World Cup and luckily they won the game.
My second trip this year went to Amsterdam and this was actually a school trip. This was my first time in Amsterdam and I definitely fell in love with the city. I love the canals, the old buildings and the feeling in the city.
Even though this was a school trip I only saw my teachers twice. We had some tasks we had to do, but we also had a lot of free time. So, of course, I went shopping, visited the Heineken Museum and just walked around enjoying the city.
I am definitely planning to go back and luckily Amsterdam is not far away from Denmark.
Travel wise, 2016 has been an amazing year. I have visited Chicago, Amsterdam, Berlin, Italy and Turkey and I have therefore decided to dedicate 5 blog posts where I will tell you about each destination.
Back in January I went back to Chicago where I used to live and work as an au pair. I visited my old host family and a good friend of mine. My friend and I went downtown where we went to Navy Pier, The Bean, and just walked around and enjoyed the city. We ate good American fast-food and I had my first legal drink in the states. I was also lucky that my host family invited my along on small family trip to Muskegon, where went to a luge track, which did not go that well since I ended up in the ER with a sprained angle, ups.
Chicago is probably my favorite city in the world and I was actually thinking about going back again in January but decided to go to New York instead to see something else. I also thing that next time I go to Chicago it will be in the summer J
