I love…

oh my.. where to start?!?!?!! The past few days have been amazing, exciting, and so much more, there’s very few words to describe it.

… Fashion… As I’d mentioned previously, I got tickets to the opening night of the first ever Zurich Fashion Days as well as to the Up and Coming Swiss Designers show; it was amazing. Let me tell you, I’m quite addicted now, I can’t wait to attend my next fashion show! Once I’m home and organised (if ever!) I’ll do a proper blog post about both shows with lots of photos!

On Thursday after the morning show and VIP luncheon, I raced to Zürich airport to catch our flight to Berlin. On rushing to the airport – MAJOR TIP – do NOT take Tram 10!! Unless you have lots of time to waste. I did have time but the ride was so long, I got bored!! At least I can say I took the tram to the airport, but never again, that’s for sure.

… Berlin… The last four days in brief:
So Thursday evening we landed in a rather cold and rainy Berlin and after unpacking and settling into the hotel we made a beeline for Alexanderplatz for dinner. Now don’t judge me too harshly but it was SO worth it! KFC Rocks! IMG_1361

Friday morning I was up early and headed to the hotel pool – seriously people, nothing beats a swim in the mornings! IMG_1367After a yummy full American breakfast we made out way on our ‘shopping day’. IMG_1371 They have these mobile sausage stands all over Berlin, one guy had it attached to his wheelchair and others generally strapped to them, so strange to see – I wouldn’t dare buy from them though.

While walking past Deutsche Bank we saw a huge Harrods sign and display, Kismet!IMG_1374 I’d just mentioned at work how I would love another Harrods Christmas Bear (they bring out a new one each year) and look what I got! My cute new teddy IMG_1378 (along with some fudge and English shortbread, hee hee).

Friday night we decided to get a quick bite and found ourselves at some Aussie restaurant – by far the worst meal I’ve had in a long long long time!! IMG_1387 After dinner we went to see Dirty Dancing live on stage, I had SO much fun singing along and dancing in my seat. I must admit it was weird that all the talking was in German and even some of the songs but the dancing was spectacular!IMG_1389

Saturday was a slow and lazy day with a bit of browsing at KaDeWe and a bar lunch of beer and flammküchen (French pizza type thing) IMG_1415     IMG_1410 and in the evening we met with a friend and his son at a restaurant that boasts 100 different beers on the menu and I had a Castle lager!!!

Sunday we decided to do one of those hop-on hop-off bus tours, though we did little hopping off! mainly due to the cold weather and that we’d seen quite a bit already. I took so many photos of buildings around Berlin, I find the old and modern architecture so fascinating! We ended our bus tour with a visit to the Berlin Aqua Dom . Anyone who knows me, knows how I love animals and even more so sea creatures, I can spend hours / days in zoos and at aquariums; and this one didn’t fail to impress and inspire

Sunday, being my last night, we went to the hotel’s fabulous and famous restaurant for some delicious steak. I love how at the end of the meal you get to roast your own marshmallows!!IMG_1492

Then it was a 5am wake up call and off to the airport. It was great heading home last night to get cuddles from my furbabies, I missed them so much!

Now all rested and ready to face the rest of the busy week ahead! Tonight I’m meeting a dear friend going through a break up, tomorrow night I have a facial and Thursday night I’ll be preparing for our next girls dinner party I’m hosting on Friday which I’m really, really looking forward to!! Happy week everyone!!
