Instagram Postcards Of Berlin – Jan and Feb 2012 Edition.

It may seem that I’m always travelling. What kind of travel blogger would I be otherwise? Yet I do have a place I love to call home and that’s Berlin. As I’m on the road so much, it’s only natural for people ask me “Cheryl, what is it that you do when you are not travelling?

Rather than bore you with the minute details of my every day life, I’ll show you instead through my favorite Instagram photos. I think the images help paint an overall picture of my new life as an expat in Berlin.

This post will be the first of many more to come and is part of a regular series to be published monthly.  Since my boyfriend iPhone and I have only been together since January, this introductory post will focus on things I saw and did during January and February 2012.

Instagramming Berlin

Highlights included going for long walks around my rather lovely district of Prenzlauer Berg, attending a Berlin Fashion Week party, going to my first Rollin Restaurant dinner and quite oddly a 90’s dance party featuring Haddaway (yes, you read that correctly).

So as you can see, life in Berlin is good! A little crazy (I mean who actually goes out of their way to watch Haddaway perform?) but good.

  1. @Nathalie – Thanks! I think we do. I love getting to know Berlin and am happy I decided to move here. I feel like I’m living out a life I only dreamed about previously.

    @Cherina – Thank you. And isn’t that idea great? I love it too. Saw one like this in a small Italian village recently.

  2. @Ayngelina – Aww, thanks! It’s such an easy way to show what I’m doing as opposed to writing a long blog post for each one! šŸ™‚

    @Tristan – They should put these up in Toronto. I think people would love them.

  3. @A Montrealer Abroad – Thanks so much! Glad you enjoy them. šŸ™‚

    @Christy – I really hope we can meet the next time you’re back in Berlin. That would be so cool!

  4. I’m brand new to your site and now I need to visit Berlin! It looks awesome. I’ll be teaching in Spain next year, so hopefully I’ll be able to make it there or at least to Germany! I look forward to continuing to follow your site!

  5. @Mike – Thanks for stopping by! šŸ™‚

    You most definitely need to visit Berlin. You’ll prob find yourself not wanting to leave. It’s a special place and I just can’t wait to get back.
