It’s 12:32pm and I’m in waiting in the airport of Amsterdam to fly to Taipei.
After five years of living in Berlin, I’ve said goodbye to the city last week. It’s been an absolute blast. A small summary would not do justice of everything I learnt here, so I’ll keep that for later.
I feel very blessed to have been able to do what I did. When I moved to Berlin with my brother and two friends, we had the feeling we could create our own universe, and I believe we did. It was the reason why we moved to Berlin, but it is not the reason why I’m leaving Berlin. Berlin still has everything that makes the city awesome.
Last year has been intense. It was the best and the worst of Berlin, all within 12 months. It has shaped me a lot, and the balance is very positive.
Now I’m taking a few weeks off to go traveling through Taiwan. I’ll meet a friend, and will spend my time biking, eating, and hiking. I brought my phone, but I’ll not be sharing any updates (just assume I’ll have a great time, haha).
When I’m back, I’ll move to San Francisco, with a pit stop in London. I’m joining Eventbrite’s product team, and I could not be more excited. Who wouldn’t be? The ticketing industry is broken, and we’ll fix it.
Keep exploring, and see you on the flip side
