Europe: Day 4

Berlin, Germany The central train station in Berlin was pretty big. My train arrived on one level and I had to go down another level to get to the main street. I believe the train is accessible on three levels while the station has six levels contain commercial property. It was also hot in Berlin, […]

Europe: Day 3

Cologne, Germany I was greeted with hot weather in Cologne. From what I can tell on the weather map, all of Germany is in the 30s and can possibly get into the 40s. I arrived in Cologne around 4:00PM so that gave me just over 5hrs to walk around. But with the weather, I wasn’t […]

Europe: Day 2

Amsterdam, Netherlands I woke up early in the afternoon. I set the alarm the previous night for 7:00 AM and I’m not sure what happened but I didn’t hear phone alarm go off. The alarm automatically snoozed itself and never came on again. I think the only reason I managed to wake up was because […]

Saving goal

I’ve already started to save for my flight to Hong Kong. I’m going to try to get there during Chinese New Year so that Jenn and I can make the most of our time. The last time I went was at the end of April and we didn’t get to do much together. We did […]
