TV tower

We got to Berlin on June 1st and the train station is huge! We had no idea where our hostel was so we found an information booth and asked. They had no idea either and couldn't find the street on their map..greeat. We must have asked like 4 different info guys and nobody could help us. Finally we found some internet and looked it up and found some directions. We took the U-Bahn and then headed in the general direction we thought it might be in. Some American girls pointed us in the right direction and we found it. It was pretty sketchy, not gunna lie. It was called Helter Skelter. The room we were in was pretty big and we didn't even have bunk beds..madness. We put our bags down and were really craving McDonalds so we decided to explore a bit to find one.

Not even kidding it took us almost 2 hours to find one. It was insane, in every other city McDonalds is pretty much every other restaurant! After a certain point we didn't even want it anymore, we just wanted to find one. On our way there though we did see the TV tower and a lot of other really cool things.

We went back to our hostel and decided to go out for dinner and find something fun to do. We got suckered in to some East Indian food by a crazy waiter, but it was pretty good. We sat on their outdoor patio for a while before deciding to find somewhere else to go. While we were walking we heard some English speaking people and decided to follow them, they heard us talking and turns out it was a pub crawl. We joined the pub crawl for free and went to some really sweet bars. The first one was outside and the ground was covered in sand and there was a really sketchy building next to it that was also 2 more bars on the higher floors. We went to a 2 story club somewhere in Berlin, I have no idea where though..don't remember a lot from that night but it was a lot of fun. We got back to our hostel at 6am. Late night..
