We aimed for Copenhagen: we missed and hit Berlin!

By bike to Berlin, with the ever-wonderful Elly. Some posts cover more than one day. Here’s a wee key to the links:

  • If they are in pink text, they’re links to Elly’s blog posts.
  • If they are in green text, they’re links to my blog posts.
  • If they’re in bold, photos and videos have been added since they were originally posted, or the post was written after we got home.
  • If they start with ‘EFB’, they’re links to PDFs of Elly’s Facebook posts.
  • If they start with ‘BFB’, they’re links to PDFs of my Facebook posts.
  • If they start with ‘T’, they’re links to PDFs of my tweets.
