Back up to Copenhagen...

Well, everyone I talked to said Berlin is an amazing city so I had some pretty high expectations - and I'm happy to say they were more than met! Amazing city with a great vibe, great nightlife, and huge amounts of culture from museums to street performers to amazing artistic graffiti. The fact that it's also fairly inexpensive (as compared to Scandinavia) just helps with the overall impression.
Did a free tour on my first day to get my bearings and then spent the next few days wandering around checking out the sights, visiting museums and monuments, enjoying coffee and beer.
Really enjoyed my time in Berlin - thanks to Cat for planting the seed in my mind, and to Dave and my Mom for the suggestions on what to check out. Back in Copenhagen for a couple of days before I hop a flight back to Iceland.
I've updated my travel map to one big trip so it's a bit less messy when you look at it - check it out.
