In keeping on with my Expat Living series showing what day-to-day life is like for me as an expat in Berlin, here’s the next installment of Instagram photos showing what I was up to in Apr and May of this year.
Admittedly, I spent most of April away from Berlin and travelled to Gdansk where I glimpsed the Baltic Sea for the first time, Budapest where I experienced a magical moment watching dusk settle over the city and Umbria where I watched men in tights throw flags and even took a donkey ride through the mountains. While being on the road was fun, it was really nice to come home and settle down for a while (which incidentally turned out to be only four weeks).
Home meant starting a new job as one of the bloggers for the Concorde Hotel in West Berlin and doing things like checking out the posh Astor Film Lounge for my first ever German movie watching experience and sleeping in the same bed as Halle Berry after spending a night in a Concorde suite!
Watched Ziemlich beste Freunde with a friend while leisurely sipping a Hugo in a reclining leather lounge chair.
Hung out in Volkspark Friedrichshain and dipped my feet in the pool of the fairy tale fountain.
Attended the opening party for Hostel One 80 with Kash from Budget Traveller. This guy laid here all night barely moving!
