Falling For Fall
I’m not sure I could ever live in tropical climate because I love the changing of seasons so much. I’m a Canadian girl at heart and will never be able to live anywhere where I can’t watch the miracle of spring’s growth, enjoy long lazy summer days, pull out my favorite fall fashion and wake up to a white Christmas.
As Berlin’s cold wet summer turned into a warm sunny fall, I’ve noticed just how beautiful the city has become. The leaves have changed color, fallen off the trees and created a carpet of color on the ground below.
A recent move to a new flat in Prenzlauer Berg placed me even closer to my favorite local park, the Volkspark Friedrichshain. Yesterday, I woke up early and went for a walk to find it bathed in the most glorious light. I don’t wake up early very often, but this was worth dragging my lazy butt out of bed …
Beautiful, right? I couldn’t think of a better way to start my day in Berlin. It’s days like this that make me realize that my move abroad is completely worth it despite some of the difficulties I may encounter sometimes like language barriers (working on that) and missing home (a visit’s coming up soon).
I left my park feeling renewed and more determined than ever.
