Got up early for a walk around Fulda. All in all a pretty town.

Spent much of this morning on the train from Fulda to Berlin. We shared a carriage with the Frankfrut FC supporters on to their way to a game against Berlin FC.

And here is the nub of the planner's lament. I can travel on a first class train over a distance of 500km at speeds between 150 & 250 km/hr with 4 stops inbetween. Passing through lots of agricultural fields with what seems like villages 2 km apart. Some villages seem a little bigger, but none seem to be bigger than 2,000 persons. So how can they run a first class train service over such large distances? I would kill for such a service connecting our major towns.

Then you arrive at Berlin a city that exudes vitality. Spent the afternoon just wondering around the local hood, familiarising myself with the the area.
