After finishing my year of aupairing for the german family in London the Australian, my boyfriend, and me decided to move to Berlin. Originally I had wanted to go back to Munich for my studies, but to be honest I am happy we didn’t. It is much easier here for a non german native speaker to find work and get around in the first place, but also because after living in London, a cultural and international centre, going back to tiny Munich would have been quite a culture clash.

I’d say we arrived well. The Australian has an amazing job at a café and roastary and I have started my studies. Our cute little flat is located in a quieter area in Charlottenburg, West Berlin, and we love our new life together. Eventough I had a very hard time leaving London behind and I will always miss it and all our dear friends it is good being here now.
