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!

Most of 2010 I made excuses for not enjoying Berlin completely. My main complaint's were; not earning enough money, the cold brutal Winter, being without certain beauties of friends, going an entire year without eggs benedict from 'The Fridge' and the grungy state of the city in general. It's only now after having exhausted all excuses that I've fallen completely and madly in love with Berlin.
Thanks to Natalee for taking some pretty perfect shots of Berlin during her visit.

  1. Yes, it is rather smashing, isn't it? They're having a joke with the length of this winter though. Enough already!

    Lovely photos btw.
