Welcome!

What are you going to be doing on November 7th? How about coming on a virtual journey across Europe with me?

With the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin wall this year, Berlin's history is coming increasingly into the public eye at the moment.

This site will document my progress as I make the 700 mile journey across France, Belgium and Germany to Berlin by train in November this year. The map at the top of this page will be updated along with this blog along the way, adding pins to the map to show you where I'm posting from, so you should be able to see how far I've got!

When I get to Berlin, regular updates here will give you a virtual look around the city, with photos, descriptions, facts and perhaps even a few multimedia surprises!
