A celebration of culture, travel, new experiences, music, food and Berliners.
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!

hear them roar!
One Saturday afternoon following a Tigers basketball match, the team decided to wreak havoc among the streets of Kreuzberg. An army of men roamed alongisde the U1 tracks..equipped with Berliner kindl and a cat in a bag.
The rest of the story after the jump....
sizable group of Croatian men
What began with a few brewsky's and a sizable group of Croatian men at Luzia ended with numeous apfel korn empties, a peanut throwing competition and men swapping stories about the most outrageous foods, or rather, things they'd consumed. All outside a spätkauf.
Long live those fond memories of my afternoon with the tigers and Voltaire the cat.
