Berlin was not my first choice of destination during the summer month of August. However, I was very pleasantly surprised. Amongst the hustle and bustle and usual sights to visit in the huge city is a deep historical past. Not usually one for delving into the history of a city, I was skeptical at first. I was soon corrected after spending a day on a guided tour of the Sachsenhausen concentration camp which proved to be an eye opener at the very least. After this and a tour of the Berlin wall, I formed a new found love for the city and troublesome past its past.
