Perfect 2 weeks Girls trip itinerary to Germany, Prague and Austria

This trip idea came from Sari. She said she has been designing the itinerary of this trip which involve going around few cities in Europe by train since 2 years ago. She came up with this idea back in late 2017 and I am of course always up to any Europe trip. So we started to arrange the dates. Initially we wanted to go in August but that would be in the peak of summer and we don’t really want to travel in the heat of summer. We settled for Autumn trip on 26 Oct-10 Nov. I have to leave Hubby and Fabio behind for obvious reason; Hubby has exhausted his annual leave and Fabio can not skip school anymore as he is already on year 7 middle school. I bid good bye to cheap flight ticket for family holiday. I am glad I have had my full share of cheap flight promo tickets for many years until Fabio entered year 6 lol.

After I bought the ticket for Alyssa and me, (Yes Alyssa is coming with me especially because she is only 3 years old and she can travel free on trains and all public transportation in Europe) the nervousness started. Can I really pull this trip; flying long haul just me and Alyssa. Sari live in Singapore and we’re flying different airlines so we will only be meeting in Berlin. I will share in my next post on how we both survive the long haul flight *Big Grin*

Anyway here’s the itinerary:

26 Oct: Fly Turkish airlines 9pm

27 Oct: Arrive Berlin 9.45am. Berlin Wall memorial, Check point Charlie, Topography of terror, Gendarmenmarkt

We’re taking it easy with the itinerary as we are travelling with a 3 years old. Despite of that we are walking 20,000+ steps almost everyday and  I managed to lost 2kg (only to gain it back again in my trip to BKK a week after lol)
