After a lovely few days, it was time to begin the journey home.
We started by stretching the hour and a half drive to Berlin with some detours to visit some places of interest along the way.
First stop was Rheinsberg, a pretty little lake side town, once home to Fredrick the Great. However, our attention was initially caught by an ice cream shop offering more than 365 flavours. They even have a web site. I really enjoyed mine, until the last couple of mouthfuls, when it became apparent that they didn’t always wash the machine between flavours. So I suddenly got a burning in my mouth, which turned out to be chocolate chilli! At least Sarah had some of her’s left, so I got to ‘cleanse my palette’.
After driving through rolling countryside with forest, farms and lakes, we arrived at our lunch destination of Neuruppin. Broadly leafy streets and diverse architecture made for a couple of hours pleasant wandering. We ate lunch at a street-side restaurant, visited the main church and walked by the lake.
And then to Berlin where we caught a flight to Oslo and a night in an airport hotel.
