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!

Cupcakes & Gonfaron

Walking down Griefswalder Str
Last Sunday had a sweet little cupcake date with a few friends at a delectable cafe by the name of Vanilla. During this catchup I was introduced to a lovely French guy who unbelievably knew of Gonfaron. Gonfaron, France - come 9th April our new home for 4 weeks. ~eeeheeeheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee~

Friends..meet Gonfaron:
  • Located in the Provence-Alpes-Cote d'Azur region
  • Somewhat famous 'Le Village des Tortues' (Tortoise Park) where they take care of up to 200 tortoises yearly
  • No real particular attraction for visitors. However, there are old fountains.
  • A yearly celebration takes place - the legend of the "flying donkey"
  • Not so far from St Tropez
    Needless to say..I'm excited!!
