Here are some pictures from our daytrip to Berlin this past weekend.

This is the trip where I learned not to try and do so much -- it was fun, but also a little problematic for me. I went there with a full day of activity planned in my head, buoyed by how successful our trips to Boston and New York were this past summer -- forgetting, of course, that we spent multiple days in each city and had a hotel room where Shelby could go back and rest whenever she felt tired. Here we only had one day and no hotel room, so we ended up making a lot of spur-of-the-moment revisions to the rough plan: moving more slowly, taking time to sit down, and changing destinations to places that were closer or more accessible.

Fortunately, we'd already been to Berlin, and this was just a fill-in-the-blanks trip, rather than a go-for-broke, we'll-never-see-this-town-again death march -- a good icebreaker for my entry into this brave new "hey, relax" school of tourism.
