We are really so sad to leave our dear friends. Who thought one week would feel short and we miss them already. They were so nice to take us to the airport. We were thinking of just taking public transport but totally forgot that the airport is no longer 15mins away. The new one is quite far.
I bought a mattress from Muji because it was much cheaper in Berlin than in Madrid. It’s nice to have an extra folding mattress that’s comfortable for future guests.
This art installation reminds me of our friend Jinggoy who does the most beautiful installations.
So hard to say good-bye. We miss you already Tess!!! I miss living in the same city as you and Alex.
DiploBaby will miss Ninong Alex his movie buddy!
We did get tax free for what we bought in Berlin but we prioritized checking in so we weren’t able to bring our shopping with us to the Zoll. For us it didn’t matter so much because we only bought things we couldn’t really find in Switzerland and the pricing in Berlin is cheaper. And we don’t shop for expensive luxury items anyway. But next time we know we should go to the Zoll first to show the items we purchase.
They do have machines for checking in but we prefer to check in with a person. Thankfully there was no line.
My MUJI mattress that’s in it’s original packaging. I just made sure to tape the corners well because if a hole forms, it can damage the mattress. I also made a little handle so it’s easy to carry.
It’s super important to have a carseat/booster in Germany because of the high speeds we drive in the Autobahn where there are no speed limits at certain parts.
So car seats or boosters are free to bring on the plane. We did not need to check them in and they do not include it in the weight allowance. I got this for free in the Pay it Forward Parents Nyon group. I’m glad I didn’t have to buy.
Checked in. Time to look for some food.
Found this Mövenpick restaurant. It’s funny because Mövenpick is Swiss but we see more Mövenpick establishments in Berlin. The ice cream itself it pretty common in Switzerland but in Berlin we see restaurants & wine stores.
Having a bretzel before we say goodbye to Germany.
The cookie is pretty delicious too.
Goodbye Berlin! You’ll always have a special place in our hearts especially coz DiploBaby was born here.
Can you tell we are back in Geneva with all the luxury watch ads? LOL!
Duty free automated kiosk
They have bins for soft luggage like this.
Our mattress didn’t appear so we went to Belt 8 for special baggage and found it there.
Ready to go home!
So there’s a free Aerobus for people who are going early in the morning.
So convenient to have his booster ready to use when we arrived because it wasn’t in a packed check-in.
