About the Relle

Born and raised in Auckland, New Zealand I was nearing my completion of the tried and true steps to becoming an adult. University? check! Job of 2 years? Check! Living independently away from home? Check! Ready for something more challenging and a whole lot bigger than Auckland, I moved to Berlin in April 2010. As a Kiwi, avoiding an OE is about as unlikely as Tom Cruise converting to sanity, although choosing Berlin made for a pretty bold move. Not being ready for adulthood and frightened by the multitude of friends marrying and contemplating children..it was time to gap. Armed with very little comprehension of the German language but a big yearning for all things unknown we set off on one big year adventure. I aim to provide insight into life on the other side and hopefully convince all those doubtful kids out there that you can conquer Berlin!

Oh Rome

My lovelies,
I report all about Rome, these days I find myself reminiscing about my brief time there far too often!  Oh Rome! Rome is the most beautiful City I've laid eyes on and exceeded any expectations I had.  Oh the romance, the good looking stylish people, the gelato, skipping through cobble-stoned footpaths, laying eyes on Vatican City.  Weaving through the maze of tourist attractions, the free hugs around Trevi Fountain, climbing the winding stairs to the top of St Peters Basilica, taking in the view of St Peters square. Ahhh do you have all day because I could go on and on and on and on!  The monstrous colosseum, relaxing on the Spanish steps, and most of all getting to experience every attraction with 2 of my most amazing friends.  I have a million and one photos because we all went a little overboard, however I made a little movie for your happy viewing:)

Enjoy my beautiful people!
