Today is a good day – here’s why:
- After a week of 12 hour days, it’s my Friday!
- My landlord has promised to fix my broken radiator…finally. Considering the temperature in London lately, this is major.
- FedEx is delivering my shipment from Seattle that has been stuck in customs for no apparent reason. Yay warm clothes and more shoes!
- I’m going on my first European trip of this expat adventure to Berlin.
As my gorgeous friend Megan at Neither Here Nor There described in this blog post, expat life is a collection of ups and downs – and feelings about living abroad can change in an instant. After having a frustrating week, instantly London and I are back on good terms.
Back to Berlin. I know I want to see the Berlin Wall, Checkpoint Charlie, and some Christmas Markets. Other than that, I’m looking forward to exploring the city and all its culture. I’ll have 3 full days in Berlin. Anyone been? What are the must-dos?
