We've not been abroad for 17 years..... However we're attempting to go to Berlin in February 1/2 term... I say "attempting" because having not been abroad for so long, I've no idea where to start! I thought an escorted tour would be ideal because everything would be sorted out..However, googling "escorted tours to Berlin" yields some quite unsavoury results!!! I know people book flights and hotels on the Internet all the time, but when you haven't done it before, it's very confusing and frankly disheartening. It doesn't help that our only local travel agent is helpful only if you know exactly what you want or buy what they suggest so I can't even go down that route. I've spent hours trying various travel companies' links and come up with nothing. Before I give up yet again and stay in the UK, how do you book a holiday when all you know is that you want to go to Berlin for 3 days in February, stay somewhere central with B&B and fly from wither Manchester or Liverpool?
