Autumn and winter in Berlin…
I’ve been living nearly nine months in this city now and I will soon have experienced all seasons here. It was certainly a good decision to move here in spring and not in winter – because this can be quite uncomfortable in Berlin. The group Seeed expressed this quite spot on in their song “Dickes B”: “Dickes B, home an der Spree, im Sommer tust Du gut und im Winter tut’s weh.” (fat B, home at the Spree, in summer you’re good and in winter it hurts).
In remembrance of Sir Terry Pratchett this website now also sends a Clacks overhead in its HTTP header.

I’ve been living in Berlin for half a year now – and nearly three months in the new flat. By now I can say that I arrived, even though there are still many unknown places in the city and many things to explore. I find my ways to the office and to friends without a map and I still enjoy it to be able to use my bicycle most of the time.

A week a go I moved to the new flat. There is still a lot to do but at least my computer and the internet connection already works :-).
Meanwhile I also used the opportinity to explore the neighbourhood a bit and also found this view with the Funkturm Berlin and Internationales Congress Centrum (ICC):
I’ve been living in Berlin for more than three months now. During first months the available room was limited and I also did not have a place to store my bicycles. The only way would have been to carry them the balcony on the second floor, which is also quite cumbersome.
I’ve spend some stressful days and this afternoon I finally go to Berlin. Today I will visit my empty appartement for the last time to hand it over to the landlord.
Even though I’m not born in Augsburg I lived here for about 40 years and the city had certainly become my homeland. On the other hand I am also happy to open a new chapter in my life.
