Instagram Postcards Of Berlin – Jul 2012 Edition.

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.

  1. Looks like you have lots to do in Germany. Hopefully you will come back to Canada to visit. Love you. Mom

  2. 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.
