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!

Today was an exploration day dedicated to Friedrichshain. Starting with a positively nerdy visit to the computerspiele museum and finishing with some thrifting at Humana (4-story second-hand store). The sunshine was out this afternoon and despite the weather being on the chilly side, it was another perfect day in Berlin.

The Pain Game - everytime you lose a point against your opponent the pad where your hand rests heats up, you get shocked and a rubber cord whips you. Judging by her hand my guess is that she wasn't winning? *ouch*
