After the relaxing week in Bali over the Eid break, I was busy packing and getting organized for the move to Berlin. I packed my 2 large suitcases, 1 carry on, and Dan was soon driving me to the airport on Friday, September 23. I arrived in Berlin where I would be spending the next month in a hotel in Potsdamer Platz. That afternoon, I met some of my new colleagues at the local brewery BRLO where they were meeting for a team beer tasting event. A great start to the new job! I went for a run the next morning in the nearby Tiergarten park where they were also getting set up for the Berlin marathon on Sunday. The new job started on Monday. I don’t have too many exciting things to report for the first week but I would be meeting up with Dan that weekend to partake in the Oktoberfest festivities in Munich.
