Because I’m all about learning from others’ mistakes and wasting as little as possible (time money, food, steps, you name it), what I’m aiming to do here is be as helpful as possible to people planning trips I’ve already taken. So I will try to give you The Top Line about the places I’ve been and the things I would do again – or not. Ie, was Chocollonia worth the trip? (Always) And if so, what was worth doing there? (Eating all the chocolates)
I’ll try to give you as much of the practical info as possible–flight and hotel prices and how far in advance they were booked or things to do and the usual opening hours and prices — the delicious bits of the trip have another home on which to be listed.
So feel free to pop by if you need, as I try to document my Roaring Twenties for myself to read in my Boring Eighties.
Once upon a time, this blog was intended to bring 4 girls in 4 cities together on one little blog. Alas, the best-laid plans. But sometimes, I can get it together (minus the 2 years I was doing the MBA, apparently…), and so for those times, I try to write here. Because living in London afforded me some of the most amazing opportunities I could have asked for. And so did Barcelona. And now Berlin.
Going back my British birthland for a job I’d been dreaming about really was a dream come true for me, what with my first foray into the professional world, submersion into a world of accents I knew would (and did) overwhelm me with pure joy, and an onset of frequent visitors to my new home. It was an immersion I left after 5 years having gained a husband, a Rost, and a deep, undying love for London and all it has to offer to embark upon a final academic adventure in Barcelona at IESE. Now, we’re in Berlin, where I’m getting to work in a new space, both geography- and industry-wise, and getting to live a whole new dream. So here goes.
