Finally we're staying at my friend George's house, at Sewanstrasse... oh, my, I'm so happy about it! I haven't see him in ages!
So, before we leave... remember I asked you about some tips for the cold and recomendations about Berlin? Here they are!
Laia and I made a very similar post, so we're sharing all the answers you gave us... thank you!!
Sandra told us...
You have to bring lots of warm clothes! For example, if you are wearing skirts and tights you have to wear at least two pair of tights. And warm warm sweaters (I wear three pair of tights and three pair of sweaters). It's not as cold in Berlin as in Sweden, but it's still really cold. Don't forget really warm socks, a hat and scarf. ♥
It's almost -10 here and I wear 4 pairs of tights, a polo shirt under the dress, two cardigans and a wool coat. and a double pair of gloves!
Maria gave us some more tips...
If you need any clarifications or have any other questions, don’t hesitate to ask!!
I look forward to reading about your trip!
Ariella told us some good advices as...
I have to tell you, -10 is pretty cold for my standards too. I live by the coast so it rarely gets that cold (although a few days lately it has indeed been that cold and it was practically unbearable) - I really hope it won't be quite that cold in Berlin!
Anyway, to keep warm, wear many layers. If you like to wear dresses or skirts make sure you wear wool tights. You might even want to wear two pairs on top of each other since that usually helps. What matters the most is that your feet won't get cold because that will ruin your day, so wear shoes that have a thick, warm sole. And don't forget mittens (better than gloves since they keep your hands warmer than gloves), scarves and a hat!
I went to Berlin almost two years ago and it was great. The eastern part is where it all happens!
You need to go to the Jewish museum in Berlin. It is so striking, impressive and interesting. We only had two hours there which was way too little. It's the most interesting museum I've ever been to.
Have an amazing trip!

I' m not quite sure i know so much though...I guess i ll say what's important for me is:
- To always cover your head cause all the heat from your body "leaves" from there + when your ears are cold it hurts freaking bad
- Nose, fingers and toes are the places that have a tendancy to froze the fastest so make sure you take good care if them (u can use those handwarmer stuff that you "break" and it provides warm for a while)
- Put cream on your face and protect your lips !!
- Wear high socks so it also protect your leg under your pants or a pair of tights under your pants.
- Don't forget to eat and to have several tea and hot chocolate breaks;-)

I think layering of clothes is most important when it comes to dealing with cold weather You need to have a hat, gloves and some additional socks, cause it's mostly through those three places on the body that you lose most warmth from;D I can't really think of anything else..hehe..maybe because it seems so ... normal to me
But hopefully I was able to help a bit! Have fun in Berlin! :*
And then, some lovely people recomended us great places...

You should go to the east (I think) part of Berlin. Vintage and 2-hand shops all over the place! And in Galeria at Alexanderplatz they have the coolest tights. I think it was almost a floor with tights and socks.
And at the milkabilly, if i don't remember it all wrong, they have the best icecream ever!
Hope you'll have a great time in Berlin. It is alot to see there. Enjoy!
So that's it... thank you for all this lovely advices and suggestions!! I'm sure we'll have a great time! See you next week!
Tschüs!(Bye in German!)
