Winter in Berlin

January 14, 2011

So nice that there are plants in the staircase. So nice that I live about 200m away from where I once wrote my name in 2006 because I wanted to live in this neighbourhood.

Everything’s very grey now, I look forward to Spring and Summer, I’ve never been here in the Summer and people say it’s amazing.
Summer in Berlin (Alphaville is playing in Berlin in March, wow)

    Spring/summer in Berlin is the best. You gonna love it. I lived in Berlin last year and in the beginning of April it was warm enough to sit outside (in t-shirt) and have lunch!

    Oh…love that you live SO close to where you wrote your name…I guess they might haven't been so pleased that you di that! lol…
    Spring and Summer in a City which comes alive and everyone sits at Cafe's with friends in the afternoon/evening after work… can't be bad!

    Writing your name where you want to live… is that how it works? Perhaps I should give it a try!

    Ich sehne mich nach Deutschland… That's why I love reading your blog. Thanks for sharing your great photos… Hopefully I will visit Berlin in Spring. I have only been once there in late December while I was living in Göttingen and was really cold, but still a great city! Until then… I will stay tuned to your blog!

    I imagine it isn't exactly easy right now but it is at the same time such a beautiful moment in your lives.
    My best life moments were often the hardest ones.

    I am really enjoying the beginning of your life in Berlin, Sandra. I was looking forward to the move just so I could enjoy seeing the photos of your daily life in one of my favourite cities! Hopefully I will be making the move later this year too.

    Hee hee, funny idea to add a door bell :D.

    Beautiful pictures, love the palm trees – they remind me of a former neighbor, he had those in his room, too.

    summer in Berlin especially in Friedrichshain is so lovely with all the nice little parcs and cafés. Nice to hear that you love Goodies – me too 😉 You should try the dark brownie cookies… they are wonderful.
    When you are in need of a little bit nature go to Alt Stralau, (you can go over the Modersohn bridge by bike, 15 min) it is in the opposite of the Treptower Park, a very nice place, especially in spring when you can sit on the lake/riverside…

    hallo sandra, du wohnst wohl in friedrichshain?

    Alphaville??? You mean the same one from the 80s? I didn't think they were still around anymore…are you going to go? I would…just for the sheer nostalgia of it 🙂
