UK British expat living in Berlin
- Gender: Female
- Interest: art, photography, children, travel, crafts, reading,
- About me: I'm Fiona, a mother of 2 occasionally pleasant children, living in Berlin and getting to grips with the language and the culture day by day. I'm also attempting to re-start a career that's been on hold since I gave up sleeping whole nights (see children for details). I love Berlin, and all it has to offer. There's even a quaint charm to standing at the checkout and finding out for the 16th time that the bank has cancelled my card again and left me looking like a foreign idiot. My blog covers all my mishaps and social faux pas, and describes my encounters with all the culture shocks that take you by surprise and leave you bemused. Boys in tights? Uh-huh. Standing naked in an office while you have a 'chat'? Been there. Having your letting agent tell you when you can take YOUR holiday? Naturlich! Welcome to my wonderful life. Take a look round my blog. If I'm not there, you'll find me 'somewhere between facebook & flickr'...
