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!

I have to say in all my years of celebrating St Patrick's day, there really has never been any experience quite like last night. An interesting combination of a Mexican restaurant La Pulqueria masquerading as an Irish Pub, the bar refusing to sell Guinness and a piece of tiramisu being thrust into my mits all contributed to a very memorable St Patty's. Long live the leprechaun!

Friends singing the Irish anthem
Even the guy selling roses was getting amongst the Irish love
The after party was a hop across the road at an Irish-run bar named Kleine Reise. If my memory serves me correctly there was a guitar and piccolo flute duo jamming out some CCR just to top the night off.
