Three weeks later the day was finally there. I and my boyfriend made our way to the train station at 6 am in the morning. We had a five-hour train journey ahead of us. But we had really nice seats at the windows and we reached Berlin on time and had three hours to wander around Berlin. My boyfriend has never been to Berlin and I've been there twice. Therefore, I could show him Berlin and I knew a bit about it, also about the public transport. We looked at the Reichstag, the Holocaus Memorial, the Podsdamer Platz, Checkpoint Charlie, the Siegessäule, the Pariser Platz, the Brandenburg Gate. So we really saw a lot in that short time.
We then had to wait about 1 hour until the inlet began. We were Block D and were only allowed to go to the studio after Block A to C. When we were in the studio we got a bad surprise. We didn't had seats at the side, as we had assumed. We were sitting in front of the usual crowds on two long benches. These are special seats, which many actually want really bad. We were really shocked and did not want to be so seen on TV. Also because we had been awake since 5 am. But it did not help. Luckily we were not seen so much on TV, but only from time to time. The show was very fun and the two host, Joko and Klaas, were very nice off-camera. They talked to the visitors and told jokes. This was really great.
The show was over at 6pm and we headed back to the main station. We had to drive about 45 minutes and our train left at 7:45pm. We reached the central station on time, picked up something to eat and were waiting for our train. I had a salad with goat's cheese, grapes and walnuts. It was incredibly delicious. My boyfriend brought something to Burger King ;)
At 11:22pm we were at our station after a long train journey - again. From there we had to drive to my apartment and after this we had to drive for fifty minutes to my boyfriend's flat to take car of our cats. It was an incredibly long journey. We were awake for almost 21 hours . However, it was an adventure that I would not want to miss. Spontanity produces good things. You just have to trust and say yes!
