Wintering in Berlin

More than a month has passed since 2017 made its glorious and loud entry, here in Berlin. I will spare you the usual “New year, new me” crap: I know myself well enough to know when, and if, I will change at all.

Something, however, has objectively changed. I started a new job and this has been my only focus so far. After six months of sabbatical and dolce far niente, it wasn’t easy to go back to a normal business routine. Funny enough, I have started to write on my company’s engineering blog about the challenges of my new position there. If you are curious, you will find the link here.

Winter in Berlin has proceeded smoothly so far. We had some snow and cold days, true, but it hasn’t been as harsh as the last one.

Here are a few pictures taken in Volkspark Friedrichshain, close to where I live:

Sadly, I have no concrete travel plans in the near future. This doesn’t mean I have no ideas, though, and I wish to keep up with my writing nonetheless.

Take care,

  • Lieve Dierckx

    still love your pictures, Alessio, and the blogging
    the new job looks quite challenging, wish you lots of success there
    here, reading and writing, writing and reading
    still hard to get used to the sedentary life
    feet longing to walk
    lungs craving for oxygen
    looking forward to your next read
    lots of love,

    • Thank you Lieve 🙂

      Indeed I also find myself thinking about the o-henro very often, craving for more, but also happy to enjoy some “quiet quality time” here in Berlin. Wish I had more “writing” going on, but it’s so difficult with a full-time job… Or at least that’s what I tell myself not to feel too lazy 🙂

      Keep in touch,
