Instagram Postcards Of Berlin – Jul 2012 Edition.

November 6, 2012
Berlin Postcards.

Procrastinate much? Yes, it’s November and here I am publishing posts about my expat life in July. It took me 9 months of living abroad to tell you the whole story about why I moved to Berlin, so you can’t be surprised at the lateness of these posts. So in what may prove to be a vain effort to appear more timely, I’ll publish one of these posts every 1-2 weeks in order to finish up my Instagram Postcards of Berlin by year end.

As readers (primarily my mom) often ask me what life is like in Berlin and what I do when I’m not travelling, here’s a glimpse into the first half of my fun summer in Berlin which included celebrating Canada day with pizza, hanging out in beer gardens, attending fashion week and swimming in lakes.

      @Mom – I have a pretty good life in Berlin, so I certainly cannot complain. 🙂

    Love the “will code for $$” sign

    Such a diverse city. Love the cardboard “will code for $$” sign. In English, in Germany. That compared to the ratty couch as well as the high fashion just sort of typifies Berlin in my mind. That said, i have really only visited it twice.

      @Andrew – Berlin’s great! I’m a big fan of the code sign too. Hope you get back to Berlin to spend even more time there! 🙂
