I love flea markets, especially here in Berlin. Today Tilda and I went to Mauerpark, and later we met up with both Charlotta and Kristoffer at Boxhagener Platz. We took a look at the market there, and then we went to Yoyo and ate vegan burgers. Super yummy!

Thankfully we found a grocery store which was open so now at least I’ve got some breakfast for the coming week. And tomorrow I will sit down and register to a language school, for real this time. Promise to give you an update about that!


French kissing

Okay, last night didn’t end up as I’d planned. Instead of going home early in the evening, I arrived home early this morning. But let’s take it from the beginning!

I met up with Tilda and Charlotta at Alexanderplatz around eight o’clock. We bought pizza and beer and went to Charlottas apartment to drink up. Later on we took the u-bahn to Fredrichschain and walked to f.u.c. bar. It’s a really cool bar with huge disco balls, rough decor, great mix of guest and cheap beer. And there was three dogs there as well which made me really happy. 

Around half past twelve I got a text message from a french number and it turned out to be one of the four musicians that Tilda and I saw preforming on the street this Thursday. He said that they were at a bar in Wedding with an open scen and they invited us to join them. So after hugging Charlotta goodbye, Tilda and I made our way to Wedding.   

The bar, Kiki Sol, is close to the Wedding station and so it was really easy for us to find it. And the bar was amazing as well. It felt like a home party with live music, a lot of cool people and quite rough decor. We had a great time and both Tilda and I are invited to visit the guys in there house in Bordeaux. And I would love to go there sometime during spring if things works out.

Tomorrow I’ll go to Mauerpark with Charlotta and Tilda, and hopefully Kristoffer will join us as well. I also have to find a open grocery store cause to buy some food and stuff, which is a real challenge here in Berlin since most of the stores are closed at Sundays. I promise to give you an update tomorrow.


Friedrichshain, Kreutzberg and Second Hand

The day before yesterday (after signing the contract) I met up with Charlotta, Tilda (friend from Sweden), Kristoffer (my soon-to-be flatmate), Max (Charlottas boyfriend) and Karo (Charlottas friend) in Fredrichshain and went to a bar and took part in a musicquiz. And it was a really nice evening!

 I spent the night at Tildas hostel and yesterday the two of us walked around in Kreuzberg the whole day. In the evening I had three skypedates: one with Johanna, one with Ebba and one with Jacob. It was so nice to see and talk to them again, and I really really miss all of them so much.

Today I haven’t done much. I slept in, ate breakfast/lunch, watched some episodes of Friends and talked to Jacob over Skype while I put my make up on. Now I’m off to Alexanderplatz to have dinner with Charlotta and Tilda. I don’t know where the evening will end, but I’ll probably go home quite early.

I’ve found an apartment!

Yesterday I met up with a girl from Norway (that I found through a group on Facebook) to take a look at her apartment. She is going back to Norway for a few months and need someone to rent it. And today I  signed the contract and also met the guy that I will share the flat with! He seems great and is from Sweden as well. So now I have a place to stay for the rest of the year!

I’m so excited and I can’t wait to show you pictures as soon is I move in.

Weird things in Berlin

Yesterday at Charlottas birthday picking her friend Carlos asked all of us what the weirdest thing is that we’ve seen in Beelin.

And that really got me thinking. Since I’ve only been here for five days I haven’t witnessed that many weird things. But one of the biggest difference that I’ve already noticed between Berlin and any Swedish city that I’ve been to is the drug cultur. Here it’a all out in the open.

Just take my ride home last night for example. First I took the tram and there two guys offered me a joint and at the tube, five minutes later, I’m sitting right in front of a two guys dealing drugs/money.

I don’t know if I’ll ever get used to all the drugs that circulate around me in this town. But I will ask myself the same question (that Carlos asked yesterday) in a few weeks and see what my answer will be then. So stay tuned!
