First of all I’d like everyone who left a comment on my last post, who emailed me, sent me a message on Facebook or another social media channel to know that I was deeply moved by all the support I received after writing the hardest piece I ever had to write (and never thought I would have to!). 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!
