If you’re reading these in order, then following our time in Gdansk, our next destination was Berlin in Germany. We headed to Gdansk Glowny on a cold Thursday morning for our 7:30am train to Berlin Hauptbahnhof which was around a 6 hour direct train journey. A pretty smooth train journey to be honest, except the almost non-existent luggage space unless you had a tiny case, and when travelling with Emma, that’s never the case.
We arrived into Berlin a little bit before 2pm, and then just hopped into a taxi and headed to where we were staying for the next few days – The Circus Hostel, in Berlin’s Mitte district. There’s nothing worse than travelling for a long-ish period of time and then have to drag luggage around public transport and then unfamiliar streets in search of your accomodation.
A little bit of an oversight by us, but the Berlin Marathon was on while we were visiting, so as expected, accomodation was on the pricey side. However, the Circus Hostel was spot on for everything we needed – perfect location, our own room, good vibes, and the facilities were good. No complaints.
