"One day it occurred to me that it had been many years since the world had been afforded the spectacle of a man adventurous enough to undertake a journey through Germany on foot. After much thought, I decided that I was a person fitted to furnish to mankind this spectacle. So I determined to do it. This was in March, 1878." Mark Twain, A Tramp Abroad


Train Ride Amusements

We had to get a bit creative to occupy Penelope during the four hour train ride from Nuremberg to Berlin. Luckily we were able to plant ourselves in the luggage/wheelchair area where she had a bit of space to move around and explore.

Trying to figure out the automatic doors to the main cabin occupied a good, oh, three minutes.

Then we met Juri and his mom from Berlin. Penelope and Juri quickly forged a friendship, and then the time flew by. While the kids traded toys, the moms swapped stories about raising children in their repesctive countries. We did our best to navigate the conversation while switching between German and English. Penelope and Juri had no problem communicating, however.

Before we knew it, it was time to get off the train and explore the city of Berlin.

More on that to follow...
