I have never been abroad but I am doing that, and this is a thread in which I request that you help me be all prepared and etc

I also take photos of my driving license, passport and important docs (insurance) on my phone as well to have another back up always to hand.

Having a prepaid currency card - or a bank card without fees - is good.

You probably will need to make sure you have cash on you though. Berlin especially can be very hit and miss for cards being accepted in bars/restaurants.

Further to #adapterchat I’d recommend getting an EU multiport USB adapter rather than a UK to EU adapter. Something like this:

SY355

They’re dead cheap and dead useful, especially if you multiple devices to charge (phone, camera, powerbank, bike lights etc) and if you’re planning on going away again on future!

Berlin again, do visit the Reichstag Building (Bundestag). It’s free but you have to book online. It’s very popular so it often shows online as sold out but tickets come up continuously so check every now and then. You can queue up on the day but the queue is hours long. https://www.bundestag.de/en/visittheBundestag

I’m getting pretty excited. used to be very anxious about this sort of thing.

We also went to good ones called Szoda, Lokál Bar, Eleszto and Spiler (not all ruin bars) and ate at a nice place called Zeller Bistro.
