Hello and welcome! You may or may not notice that all my previous posts are now gone (boohoo). The reason being I transferred my hosting and domain so there was a 99% risk of losing all my previous contents. I couldn’t back up through the previous hosting etc so yeah it’s gone. I did copy and paste all my previous blog posts and saved it on Word but guess it won’t work either way. The transferring process took almost a week and finally, the status became active today. The whole transferring process wasn’t that easy as I expected but thankfully, the new hosting company is so helpful and quick in solving all my problems. I even received a phone call from China (I was like wtf before I answered the phone call), telling me how to solve the problem.
Anyway, I was on travelling for the past few days since the 5 of April. I went to Berlin and Prague for 6 days 5 nights and then I stayed in Liverpool for a night before coming to Manchester today. I flew to Berlin first and it was a night flight. By the time I arrived, it was already close to midnight but we still decided to take the train to city centre anyway. However, shit happened. We couldn’t understand anything and we didn’t know how the trains work. It was also late at night so there wasn’t any staff to ask so we decided to take the cab instead and paid €41. FOL.
DAY 2 – BERLIN
The night before, we planned to leave the hotel at 10am but we ended up leaving at 1030am instead cos ya’know, Malaysian timing. We went to Distrikt Coffee for breakfast which was about 10 minutes walk away from our hotel. Link can be found here!
DAY 3 – BERLIN
I can’t remember the reason why we wanted to wake up and leave earlier today but yeah, we left at 10am. Good job to us! We had breakfast at a place called Schwarzwaldstuben (don’t even try pronouncing it). So my usual breakfast drink would be hot chocolate so of course, today is no exception. The menu wrote ‘big cup of hot chocolate’ and I thought you know, how big could it be? I had the shock of my life when it came. It was the size of my hand. Not kidding, not exaggerating. It really is a BIG cup of hot chocolate.Since we knew that today was gonna be cloudy, we left Museum Island for today. Our first museum was Bode Museum. They offer student tickets but you need to show your student ID. Me being me, I left my student ID at the hotel but thank God, they accepted my BRP because it says ‘student visa’. Nobody is surprised because it’s just me being me. Anyway, I’m not a big fan of museums because they’re well, boring. We went to another museum after that but left for lunch at Emma’s after awhile. There was 5 museums on Museum Island I think but we only went to 2 museums. We took at train to East Side Gallery after that and then headed back to the hotel to rest. At night, we went to a local pub place and it was huge! It’s much much bigger than Albert Schloss and the food was awesome. We had late dinner so by the time we finished, it was already quite late. We headed back to the hotel after that because I felt unwell. I’m a 두부, no doubt.
DAY 4 – BERLIN & PRAGUE
We had to check out before 11am so we got up early. I received a missed call at 6am so I called back at around 930am. The wifi in the room sucked so bad that I had to talk outside the room, barefooted. The conversation had so much insults I can’t even. Like bruh I just woke up and got insulted 10 times in a row. We had breakfast at Factory Girl and the food was pretty decent.
Our train was at 1pm and we got to the train station very early so we just roamed around the train station because it was huge. The train to Prague took about 4 hours and we arrived in Prague at around 530pm. By the time we got to our Airbnb, it was already about 6pm. We struggled to open the door that we had to call our host to ask her how to open the door. Dumb moments sigh. We headed out for dinner at Vinohradsky Parlament and the beef tartare was so good omg. We went back to our accommodation to have an early rest because we have a full day the next day.
DAY 5 – PRAGUE
Our day started at 9am and we had breakfast at Café Lourve, recommended by my friend. After breakfast, we headed to Old Town Square to see the Astronomical Clock. We went up to the tower and the view was amazing.
Day 1 and Day 2 were pretty much just flying and eating so there really isn’t much to say about it. Overall, it was a great trip. Really loved Prague but as for Berlin, not that much. Definitely gonna visit Prague again one day! Now that I’m back in Manchester, it’s all work work work work. I have so many deadlines coming up and not forgetting the showcase and exam too sigh. I was sick throughout the entire trip which sucked but I still enjoyed myself. Was supposed to be in Brighton today till Friday but our trip got cancelled boohoo. A sign for me to rest I guess?
