Thank you so much for all the encouraging words, support and giving me hope by sharing your own stories of how you overcame horrible break-ups. You all helped me tremendously!

Before catching my flight to New York last week, I was able to spend a couple of days in Berlin again and as usual, I loved every minute of it. There are only very few places in the world where, when I arrive, I feel immediately at home, but Berlin is definitely one of them. Even though my visit was way too short, I managed to explore some new places (who knew that Berlin had an open air gas lantern museum?!), splurge on a divine 3-course meal at the fabulous VOX Restaurant at Potsdamer Platz and catch up with good friends. Of course no visit to Berlin would be complete without at least a short visit to Tempelhof, the airport-turned-park that is among my favorite green spaces in the world. I am already looking forward to returning this summer for some sunset picnics, running sessions and maybe I’ll even overcome my fear and give kite land-boarding a try!

  1. An open air gas museum hey! That sounds pretty cool! I’ve been to Berlin twice and I can see why you love the city so much.
    I wish you a really good time in New York and a lot of strenght and courage to get through the hard times. You seem like a very optimist person so I’m sure you can do this xxx

    1. Thanks so much, Fanny!! Much appreciated and much needed 🙂 I am an optimist indeed, so I am trying to look forward and to leave the past behind.

    1. Rachel – it took me a long time to become a serious runner!! 33 years!! I think you still have time 😉
