Christmas day was quite a special one. Ice skating on what seemed like our own private ice rink was whimsical unlike our ice skating skills. Right along an icy river in Berlin, snow flurries graced our cheeks as they became a bit rosy. It was almost picturesque. With only one stumble caught on video there were no catastrophic falls. A bit of glühwein (hot wine) and hot chocolate curbed our chill and then we were off onto our next adventure.
