I recently went to London (a week ago) for a long weekend kind of thing, and you know how it is. Whenever you go somewhere else, you end up comparing many things to how it’s done at “home” and so on. Even though it does not take much for me to call anything where I sleep home, it is like that.

Hard to admit, but I guess if I move in Europe it will be either one of the wilder countries (CZ, PL, HU) to the east, or probably . :-)


Not many other cities in Germany (actually none), match up to Berlin and I would just get bored at the Schanze in Hamburg, or with the very stylish and chique people of Munich, or the whole D

    Before living in Berlin, I lived in London and I really can underline the aspect on the high cost of living. I really like coming to London as a tourist, but staying there permanently isn’t really my thing.

    “up to 600lbs per month” – some people pay an awful lot more than that – the going rate where I live is more like 650 per month, exlcuding bills; when you add those in it can easily reach 800-900!

    I can relate to your saying that if you had to move anywhere within Europe it would or be the East or London. I cannot imagine living in any other German city eiher, going back to where I come from does not seem like an option and the thought of living in places like Brussels, Amsterdam, Paris or any other “old” European city, makes me yawn. Maybe totally unreasonably so, but that would feel like taking a step backwards.
