Day tripping || Potsdam

This awesome toilet was decorated with pages from manga comics. 
I stayed in there for an age...
way too long.

Heading into my favourite area of Potsdam, 
the Dutch quarter.

Dammit Marie, they're MINERALS!

When we get visitors we tend to go out and explore a lot more than usual. 
This year we ended up travelling just outside Berlin,
to a little place called Potsdam. 

It's seeped in history, to quote my dad,
"it got the shit bombed out of it during the war".
Eloquent as always. 
Which war he is talking about, i'm not sure.

It took about 50 minutes to get there on a train.
We had lovely weather and every intention to get the water taxi around the city,
someone was too cold and needed to buy a jumper,
so we missed to first taxi, 
then spent the rest of the day chasing another one.
[my feet!]

My favourite area was the old Amsterdam quarter.
The houses were beautiful,
i've still not been to Amsterdam, but i want to go even more now!
I would have loved to sit outside a cafe and had a cherry beer,
watch the afternoon slowly go by.

There is even a Brandenburg gate here, 
which was bizarre!

One of the main places it is recommended to visit here is 
Sansoucci Park.
It was beautiful,
but that's another story for another day!
