Hamburg - Berlin vacay + haul

We had our 6-days getaway at Hamburg, Germany. I was with my hubby and baby Julia. Also my in-laws. Hubby's cousins + hubby's 2 pamangkins. So that makes us 5 adults and 3 kids :p 
So Hamburg isn't the main place to go for a vacation in Germany, but it's actually a big city to go shopping and to roam around (compare to Oslo). I remember when my hubby told me, once you live in Norway and you travel in another country, you'll find everything CHEAPER. And YES! It's true! Hahaha Well not "cheap" cheap, just much  LESS of the price compare in Norway. For days, we roam around the city, eat the most famous "german-ish" foods, shopped at stores like Karstadt, Rossman, Real etc. But I found myself so in love with Douglas shop. There, they have all the cosmetics and beauty products you need, name the brand! MAC, Clinique, L.a colors, benefit, Dior, Chanel, Lancome etc. But the counter I fell in love at first sight with was the NYX counter. Why? Cause it was actually the first NYX counter I saw and able to see and try all of their products. Yay to that! 

On our 4th day, we were able to rent a car, so we went to Berlin the following day (Sunday) but too bad, malls and shopping centers were closed cause obviously its Sunday. But we didn't left Berlin  yet cause we were able to roam around, and guess what? There were so many tourists that time so we still enjoyed our day trip there. We saw the famous Berlin Wall, we got to see also the "shopping" streets in Berlin were you can see high-end brands, Hermes, LV, Bally, name it! 

So with this blog I'm going to show you some pictures of the foods, places and things we experienced in Hamburg and Berlin, and also the things I/we bought back there hihih :) 

Enjoy the photos!

To sum it up, it was really a wonderful experience in Hamburg, even if it's also cold back there. If ill be given a chance ill definitely go back there, or maybe in another city in Germany. Or maybe in US, cause I think shopping experience in USA will be superb!! Hahaha :) It's so nice to travel, maybe I can share and write blogs about my previous travels like in Bohol, Cebu, Boracay, Hong Kong and Singapore!
