We run away from the cold of Berlin aiming to arrive as quickly as possible in southern Europe to warm up a bit. Our plan was to enter France from Alsace following the rivers, thus avoiding the mountain roads and the cold. But when we arrived in Bamberg we changed our mind. Cold, not cold, it was impossible not to stay for a couple of days visiting this lovely town.
… was cloudy!! We stayed in Berlin for eight days, with temperatures ranging from -12ºC to -5ºC and only four-five hours of sunshine overall. On the other hand we have never seen so much snow and so much ice… It’s not the best conditions to explore a city, but all in all it was worth the adventure.
We leave the Lake of Como heading for Berlin, where we plan to arrive the first week of January; on our way up north we are going to visit some friends in Lugano and Bregenz. Afterwards we continue our drive defying the weather, knowing that most likely it won’t be favorable. What is life without a little adventure? ;)
