MY ACCOMODATION The hotel I stayed in was a comfy and friendly place. But the only thing that bothered me was the bed, because it was too hard and did not have much cushion to it. I only stayed there for 2 nights. The hotel I stayed in is called: Meininger Hallesches Ufer HALLESCHES UFER 3010963 BERLINGERMANY (3 Star, Superior Tourist Class Modern Hotel)
FAMOUS GERMAN ICON Albert Einstein 1879 - 1955 1905 Einstein wrote four fundamental papers, all in a few months. The fourth paper showed that mass and energy are two parts of the same thing, mass-energy (E=mc2). His most famous founding. 1915 After a decade of thought, with entire years spent in blind alleys, Einstein completed his general theory of relativity. Overturning ancient notions of space and time, he reached a new understanding of gravity. "The years of anxious searching in the dark, with their intense longing, their alternations of confidence and exhaustion and the final emergence into the light – only those who have experienced it can understand it." 1952 Einstein was asked to become the second President of the State of Israel, but declined. He was supporting many causes, such as the United Nations and world government, nuclear disarmament, and civil liberties.
FAMOUS GERMAN ICON Albert Einstein 1879 - 1955 The Einstein Tower is an astrophysical observatory in the Albert Einstein Science Park in Potsdam, Germany designed by architect Erich Mendelsohn. It was built for astronomer Erwin Finlay Freundlich to support experiments and observations to validate Albert Einstein's relativity theory. I went to visit the ‘Einstein tower’.
FUN FACTS There are more than 150 castles in Germany! Some are still inhabited by aristocratic families, others have been transformed into hotels and restaurants, and still others are in ruins. You would have to try one kind of German bread per day for almost a whole year in order to be able to taste them all! There are over 300 different kinds of bread in Germany.
Yummy Food My first night in Germany for dinner, I ate ‘sauerbraten’. It’s a traditional lean beef roast dish. I ate some ‘bratwurst’. Which is basically German type of hot-dog. It was one of my favourites!
Reflection* Next time I go on my trip, I plan to save up more money so that I can purchase more. It was great fun and experience....
