When reading my posts you may have noticed that I have been travelling to Berlin quite regularly for many years. Therefore I have an every day bicycle there and I also purchased my netbook mainly because of the travels to Berlin.
Now I have the opportunity to live in Berlin permanently and will leave Augsburg soon. Even though I was not born in Augsburg I grew up here since my early childhood and can see this city definitely as my “homeland”. I experienced the late 1970ies including the U.S. army in Augsburg and the back then “new” triangle at Königsplatz as it existed between 1977 and 2013. I learned to know the Leonhardsberg as “Magesberg” (since there was a textile shop named “Mages”) and I remember many other details from the last 40 years. On the other hand Berlin became a kind of second home over the years with many good friendships and I also know some areas there quite well now.
