Berlin

Recently, I was privileged enough to visit Berlin for a 4 day cultural trip. I enjoyed every minute of it. We visited many of the tourist type places such as the fernsehturm (TV tower) and Check point Charlie. Before visiting Germany’s capital I knew next to nothing about World War 2, but I learnt so much whilst I was on this trip. As well as the historical side I really enjoyed practising my German in Berlin. I used to live in Germany so I had a little bit of understanding already, I had never been to Northern Germany so it was a new experience for me. 20140408_135330

One of the highlights was definitely going up the TV tower, the view from the top was great and we could see for miles ahead of us. I also enjoyed the river cruise we went on. A pre recorded tape told us all about what was around  us in both English and German which meant I could practice my listening skills

20140407_153753I stayed in a  room with some friends who had never been to Germany before. We switched on the TV in our room and put some cartoons on in the hope that we might hear some words that were familiar to us and the first thing we heard was “AUF WIEDERSEHEN DIE KATZE!” and so it kind of became the motto of the trip.20140406_140945

Overall I thought Berlin is an amazing city and there is always something to do or see. I would definitely recommend you visit if you haven’t already.

Looe campsite in Cornwall

 

I have recently visited Looe campsite in Cornwall.
This campsite is amazing with many things to do on site and around the area you will never get bored.

All the staff are friendly and always help you out They give you a choice of pitches and you choose which one you want and they send someone down to help you set up you caravan or motor home.

On the site there is a swimming pool, tennis courts and a mini golf course I recommend trying them all .

In the town of Looe there are many opportunities to try a traditional Cornish pasty they are delicious also try a Cornish ice cream I ate many over my holiday! In addition to this, there are lots of places along the harbor to go crabbing. Not forgetting the amusement park too, hours could be  spent in there  though   unfortunately we had to leave due to not long left on the parking. Looe is a lovely town and well worth a visit.

Polperro is a picturesque place with many quirky shops you will most certainly be able to grab a bargain. Also Polperro was known for its fishing and smuggling and has a very interesting museum. In the town or by the harbor there are many lovely cafes and restaurants.

We went to Bodmin just 35 mins away to visit the triple mini roundabout which has now been made a double mini roundabout  my Dad knew about it because he had to drive round it on his driving test.

Also we went to St Austell brewery 45 mins away as my Dad wanted to see the new refurbishments that had been done since he came last. Even though it is an adults thing it was sort of fun looking at all the machinery and how the beer is made.

Although it is an hour away Newquay is a wonderful place to visit with its gorgeous beach and lovely cream teas it is a highly populated place. It has many shops and places to eat .

Overall this is my opinion of the site xx

Bernard my pet hamster

We not long ago bought a hamster from pets at home . We had thought about it when Jim (colleague from my Mum and Dad’s office)  decided to get one . unfortunately Jim named his Dave which we would of done. So instead we named him BERNARD.

Now this is the weird part, me and my dad didn’t actually go in for a hamster we went in to get Betty’s ( our dog)  favourite food so we took her with us. Dad and I agreed to have a “look” at the hamsters. Yet we came out with dog food and a hamster and its accessories.
