Travel Diary: EPT Berlin

Laura Cornelius

I adore Berlin. It has such an edge of coolness about it I was so excited to return there for the penultimate EPT of the season. Having a good friend living there also helped me to enjoy the experience much more. Before the Main Event kicked off, I went out to celebrate my German friend's birthday and get to know the Berlin way of life a little better than I had done before. It was a Sunday night and apparently the best night of the week to go out (that was a statement from a Berliner, so it's pretty concrete.) We started in a Swiss restaurant called 'Helvetia' in Kreuzberg where we ate a cheese fondue. It was insanely tasty and cheap. In fact, I wasn't really looking forward to it so much, I mean, how can a bit of bread and cheese be that great? But trust me, it was. I couldn't stop dunking my bread into the hot runny cheese sauce. Just thinking about it now is making my mouth salivate, so really, if you come to Berlin, you must try and find Helvetia of you like cheese. The address is Mariannenstrasse 50, 10997 Berlin. Go. Go. Go!
