How I ended up in here . . . . . .
I came to Berlin for a weekend for a friends Birthday, Berlin had never been on my radar as somewhere I wanted to go and the extent of my knowledge of Berlin was from History in school. In November Berlin is cold as fuck, I hate the cold but I fell for the city in 4 days (like in all great love stories!) It wasn't one thing it was just being here felt good there is an ease to the city.
So April I'm in a pub in Kingscross having a conversation with my flat mates friend and we start talking about Berlin and she tells me she's been there so many times and if she didn’t have to consider her partner and her new Job as a Teacher she would move there in a heartbeat. I'm listening to this and thinking, I don't have a partner and my job moves with me so why don't I move there?
Sitting on a London Bus I saw these billboards about how London is getting so expensive and the decrease in quality of living in London. So I text my Friend Dionne and wrote 'Wanna move to Berlin with me?'
3 Months later we landed in Berlin 3 suitcases each and it was 38 degrees! July in Berlin is fucking Hot!
I love Berlin it is a smash up of my home town of Hereford and London. And I started cycling for the first time since I was 15 (even though everyone thought I couldn't!)
