BERLIN Part 1- What’s the WURST that could happen?!

Last Thursday evening, three chums with eyes bleary and heads achey from the slog of the working week convened at Kings Cross St Pancras laden down with overstuffed weekend bags. WE WERE OFF TO BERLIN. Four days of sausages, beer, sight-seeing, beer, hostelling, beer and rollicking good fun awaited us.

I had my last day at my current temp job last week, and once the clock hands tick-tocked onto 5pm, I swept all my stuff off my desk, jumped on it, flashed the office and started popping and locking to ‘School’s Out’ by Alice Cooper.
