The day after the Essence Beauty Bloggers Secrets Party I had decided to make the most of being in Germany and do some sightseeing.
After breakfast we headed to the hotel we’d booked for the second night. The hotel was the Metro One and for the price I really recommend it! It was modern, clean and the location was great, just a 15 minute walk away from the cathedral in the city centre. Myself and Lissa had a refresh before meeting up with the other girls to explore the city!
A couple of members of the gang had chosen to go shopping instead of the tour, so we met up again at the end of the tour. At this point we tried to get into the cathedral, only to be thrown out because our shoulders were showing. Now don’t get me wrong, I understand why they have these rules in religious buildings but there were plenty of older women, and men, walking around in strappy vest tops and the staff were really rude. None of us had jackets as it was so hot so we had to leave, such a shame because it’s a stunning building. If you are coming to the area, I recommend you bring something to cover up if you want to get past the entrance.
We had planned on hitting up the town at this point, however to be honest, we were all either tired, unwell or both, so we stuck to having cocktails in the hotel bar, which was actually rather lovely. There were lots of laughs and we had a fantastic conversation with the waitress who was absolutely amazing, and an Iranian pop star! We stayed up late just enjoying ourselves, watching weird youtube videos and drinking cocktails. Check out day two for more exploring!
