Those of you who know me well will not be surprised in the least that as November begins, Matt and I have both gotten sick. Thankfully, with a strict regimen of fluids, rest, and Netflix, we’ve managed to keep the cold to a dull roar and we’re carrying on.
We travelled from Prague to Berlin on Friday morning. After an hour delay at the train station, we finally got on our way. And what a voyage! Matt, being the incredible research nerd that he is, figured out which side of the train to sit on for the best views.
Our main reason for visiting Berlin (besides just being cool hipsters) was to attend Video Games Live at the Tempodrom – the venue that conjures the image of this Turtles in Time level every time I say its name. “Technodrome: Let’s Kick Shell!” 🐢🐢🐢🐢
I was so glad to bring Matt to VGL for his first time, and though it was my seventh time seeing the concert, this was my first time not working. The music was great as always, but I had to rely on myopia to shield me from the Silent Hill and Resident Evil clips. 🤓
Between having a short time here and being a bit under the weather, we most certainly haven’t seen all of the sights – but I’m learning that it’s imposssible to do everything, and there’s no sense beating ourselves up about it. We simply do what we can.
Today is our last day in Berlin before we head off to Nuremberg for two weeks. We’ve visited some cool spots, seen some lovely friends, and enjoyed some great walks around the city… but we’ve also watched more episodes of Taskmaster than I care to admit.
How do you deal with illness while you’re travelling?
