First Dinner in Berlin

Hello from Berlin!

We spent the whole day exploring different neighborhoods of Berlin. The city has so much history I can’t keep track but it truly is fascinating. We’ve lucked out on the weather so far and this evening was quite warm with a slight breeze. Tomorrow we are heading to MuseumInsel which means museum island in German. We tried this authentic German restaurant that exceptional so naturally, I took photos to share with you!

The restaurant was called Kurhaus Korsakow and is situated in the neighborhood of Boxhagener Platz (and I thought French was difficult to pronounce). I loved the ivy on the outside of the building and the ambiance inside was relaxed and comfortable.

The first course was a delicious thick potato soup that I think is quite popular in Germany. It’s one was super rich and creamy with pesto mixed in to it. It went quite nicely with a glass of Sauvignon Blanc.

The second course was absolutely heavenly. It was a cheese spaetzel (a sort of German pasta) with this delicious creamy sauce mixed with peppers. There was also a salad on the side with cucumbers, radishes and some other seasonal greens. Somehow the dish managed not to be too heavy even though it was deliciously creamy and cheesy.

Lastly, I really wanted dessert (when do I not?) but my friends were both too full so I resisted temptation. Tomorrow I’m scoping out the best looking dessert I can find! Can’t wait for more adventures tomorrow.

Hope you are having a nice start to the week!

I am officially moved out of my dorm! So crazy, I can’t believe how fast this year has gone by. Though I can’t pretend I was sad to leave my 9 square meter room behind. I have accumulated SO much stuff this year. I have absolutely no idea how I am going to get everything back to the U.S. We’ll see, first I have a little more traveling to do 🙂

Today’s theme is I Care About This… How perfect!

This is my dear friend Cyrielle. She is the cutest little French girl I have ever met and has become one of my best friends. It is going to be so hard to leave her but she is coming to Seattle next spring to visit me! It is going to be so great 🙂 I’m so thankful to have met her and must wish her a Happy Late 23rd Birthday on my blog. Je t’aime Cyrielle!
