After Oktoberfest, I was back to the grind at work. During the next 3 weeks, I would be spending most of my spare time looking for an apartment. I was also trying to get a few other things set up like a German phone number, bank account, gym membership, etc. After spending countless hours searching and 10 apartment viewings, I finally found what I was looking for. I moved into the new apartment in the Mitte area on October 23rd. On move in night, I kept up our tradition and ordered in pizza for dinner.
During this busy time, I also managed to check out the Festival of Lights. The festival uses light projections and video art to illuminate Berlin’s most famous landmarks. I also found a movie theatre that shows movies in English so I went to see Bridget Jones Diary on opening night. The rest of my time in October was spent getting things settled in the new digs. I hope to have many people come to visit!
