Life In A Day reist nach Deutschland …

19 Feb

February 19, 2011

Yep, Life In A Day traveled to Germany… and we were invited to go along!

Thrilled beyond belief, we received the news just days after returning from Utah:

Bob – I’m not sure if we told you, but the film is also going to premiere at the prestigious Berlinale Film Festival in Berlin on Saturday 12th of Feb. We’re still trying to confirm a few things and it’s not 100%, but I wanted to check to see if you and the family would be available for a trip to Berlin? Think of it as Sundance v2.0!

YES! YES! YES! We would most definitely be available!

By Wednesday, they had confirmed that it was official. They wanted us to come to the festival:

Bob – I confirm I have great news! We definitely want the Liginskis to come to Berlin to join us for the festival. At this stage, we’ll want you arriving in Berlin either Thursday or Friday next week. The big premiere is on the Saturday night (the 12th) so not much time…

Not much time is right but we kicked it into gear. By the following Wednesday we were on a flight to Berlin Germany…

It was a long flight but with the help of books, Legos…

and a few zzz’s…

we were in Germany and excited to get our very first stamp in our passports…

Time to hop on the subway. Which way to Spittlemarkt? This way to Spittlemarkt…

We made it! Hotel Sweet Hotel…

Once settled and deliriously tired but not able to sleep, we decided to venture out to see what we could see.

Very old buildings…

Two of mom’s best friends…

And a park smack dab in the middle of Berlin…

Back at the hotel we tried our best to stay up until at least 6 or 7pm. Pop helped for a while…

But before long, we were pooped…

We headed up to bed only to have our jet-lagged bodies wake us up again at 1am. So what do you do at 1am in the morning?

Well, you can check out the streets of Berlin from your window…

You can meditate by a faux fire…

And you can eat chocolate covered pretzels…

Finally we all fell back asleep and didn’t wake up again until 11am the next morning.

Completely rested, we were up, out, and ready to go…

Achten Sie Berlin … Die Liginskis sind im Haus!
