Phill and I have just had a lovely week away in Germany. Coincidentally, our friends Helen and Dave went to Berlin at the same time although our trips were slightly staggered. We also got to visit another friend Lorna and her gorgeous boy Philipp who live there now.

It was Helen's birthday while we were away which meant going out for a fabulous dinner. We went to a pizza restaurant called The Twelve Apostles in Charlottenburg in the West of the city. They do lots of lovely Italian food but their main thing in Pizza. They do a special pizza, the Pizza Gigante, which is for a minimum of 3 people. Basically, they make a massive pizza for a group and put a mixture of toppings on. We ordered one for 5 (the maximum) and the only stipulations were no onions or fish. What turned up was truly epic. There was enough parma ham to make it look like someone had grated a pig over it. There were artichokes and capers, tomatoes and different types of cheese and several types of pig. It was delicious. The boys regarded it as a challenge!!

Before: Daniel's head for scale!
After: locusts have passed through!

During the week, we had the chance to do loads of fun things. We went up the TV tower, to the zoo, to the DDR museum, saw the world's largest model railway and drank a lot of coffee! We also went to a cafe where everything was chocolate. Nom!

I have a million pictures so I think I will do a different post for each part.
