Feeling comfortable with the new situation?

That’s the most asked question I get to hear during this time.

As you may have read in the previous posts I was planning to move to another city, namely Berlin capital city of Germany. Ok, plan sounds like I was the one who decided that :) I got a great job offer there and now I am living a this strange place.
After about 3 weeks being away from my hometown, I can just say, that it is really hard sometimes. I really miss my drums, and I am so looking forward to buy a Yamaha-DTX edrum, just to have the chance to play a little bit here. In adition to this I haven’t been able to rehearse with my band, which really makes me going mad.

Being not able to talk to your friends and family face-to-face may give someone the rest….

But these are all the negative parts, let’s look forward and try to be opened for the new situation here. Berlin is a city, which can basically be described as a heap of minor cities, each one living on his own and only unified because of its name. The people here even start to be friendly, or is it just me getting as cold as them? That’s the first thing I’ve recognized here, that a lot of people look and behave like they lost their job, wife and car the last hour before. But as soon as you get used to that, you get a better instinct for really friendly persons :) And the restaurants nearby are all great. It’s time to go further to other parts of Berlin. But nothing can beat the Dr. Funk Son available at the Siam Bar nearby my hometown.

It has been a really hard night finding a cocktail here, which I really could recommend to a friend.
After working one week now for my new employee I can just say, that it is quiet different to the jobs I have worked before, but isn’t that always that way? And different does not necessarily mean, that it has to be negative. It is just….. yeah different :)

All in all I have to acknowledge, that it is really interesting to be in a complete different environment, but also I miss you all sitting at home. I cannot believe that you continue your life or have fun without me :P

And I guess as long as I say “home” to my previous living place, everything is still as it was before. Just hundrets of kilometers away…

P.S.: The formatting in WordPress can be really frustrating sometimes…. Just imagine some more breaks everywhere….
