Might need a last minute place to crash in Berlin!
Posted December 20th, 2012 - 2:42 pm by from Baltimore, United States (Permalink)
So months ago I planned this 7 day trip to Berlin for New Years with a friend of mine from the states but he has just informed me that he can no longer go on the trip and I'm now on my own.
The trouble is that we were supposed to be staying with friends of his in Berlin but now that he won't be there I might not have anywhere to stay and I've already booked a flight into Tegel on the 30th. I am still very excited to see Berlin (especially for New years) but I'm getting a little worried about getting stuck with out a place to sleep and would really love someone who knows the city to hang out with (maybe even show me around a little and help me with my german, "es ist schrecklich!")

I'm currently in Bad Kreuznach with Sebastian (if you read my/our profile, he is the other half)for Christmas with his mother and to celebrate his Oma's birthdays. On the 30th I will leave him with his family and take the train on my own to Frankfurt where I will then fly to Berlin in the evening. Sebastian is going to be meeting me in Berlin on the morning of January 5 to spend one day and one night there with me before we fly home to Baltimore together on the evening of the 6th.

In short I'm still waiting to hear back from my friend's friend in Berlin about whether or not they will take me in but I am hoping to find someone who might be willing to host me for any or all of the time between the 30th and 6th in the event that they are unable to have me and I wind up out in the cold. Even if it all works out I'd still be excited to meet up with anyone who was willing to share some beers or show me around their favorite part of the city while I'm there.
