I’m moving to Berlin

Here we are. If you follow my social media accounts, there’s a high probability you caught that I was moving out of France for a while. Thing is : This is the last year of my Bachelor Degree and I’ve been asked to do an internship in a foreign country. After more than 120 spontaneous messages sent to numerous cities in Europe, I eventually got hired in a Public Relations firm in Berlin, Germany.

In less than 24 hours, I will be in a plane from Lyon, France to Berlin and although I still have no place to stay I am so excited to live this adventure. Five months away from where I was born, away from my friends and family in a country I don’t know a single thing about. To be honest I don’t even know how to speak german. I got hired based on my english and the fact that I’m a french native.

So, in order to make this journey memorable I also bought myself a brand new camera. Please welcome my Panasonic Lumix G7, its 14-42mm kit lens and its Canon 50mm f/1.8. You can expect a lot of stuff coming out from this object and I can’t wait to share this experience with you guys.

This is a short post and I’m sorry about that. You can also expect a data visualisation post of all the e-mails I sent, the percentage of answers I got etc. I noticed that there’s some countries who tend to not answer at all and other countries where people always take the time to answer even if it’s for a no. I think we can extract some interesting hypothesis out of my numerous batches of emails I sent.

Anyway, I’m probably already in Berlin by the time you read this so if you want to know what I am up to, please follow my social medias accounts. Most importants are my new Twitter account and my Instagram.
