Shhh, it's a secret

So, words, huh?
I believe i promised you words.
Well, i just got my pictures from Berlin back, so there'll be pictures too, even though my current (but not future) photo-guy ruined a bunch of them. Yeah, bummer.

So i think i'm just gonna come right out and say it... say that thing, you know, the thing that's been bothering me? That stuff  i haven't been able to share here?
Here goes!
As i mentioned in this post, we went to Berlin last week, so Allan could tattoo our friend Sarah, and that's all true, and he did, but wasn't the only reason.
We also went there to look at apartments.
Yes, that pretty much means exactly what it sounds like. We're moving to Berlin!

The reasons i couldn't talk about this are numerous, and i'm not even sure i should be saying it now, but hey, that just happened!
One of the main reasons is of course our shop. Then there was breaking the news to our families and friends before it hit the internet, and of course we also wanted to be 100% sure. And we are now.
We started talking about this move way back in April, so we've been planning it for a while already, and it's been tough not venting about the ups and downs here, but i'm glad i can finally share this with my readers.
I'll be telling you way more about the what's and when's and how's later, but for now, this is what i'm comfortable sharing.

Here are some Berlin pictures... mostly of baggage and balcony's, for some reason!
Mostly taken around Kreuzberg and Friedrichshain with my Canon AE-1 and a Kodak Portra 160 film (whaaaat? I remembered!)

Enjoy!


 











Aahhh, that was scary, actually!
Not because i'm worried about moving, cause i think i'm way past that point, but because it's been a secret for so long and i still feel like i'm not allowed to say anything!
But we have to eventually, right? We can't just move and yell "surprise!" afterwards.
Oh well... you heard it here first!

  9. Niiiiice. That is great new actually. Now I have a huge reason to go back there, used to live (squat) at a friends on place on Linien Strasse 41/42 between merchant marine gigs and backpacking back in the days. Fucking LOVE Berlin…Scandinavia not so much to be honest. First Berlin then Tokyo right…? Best of luck with the move and stay sharp!

  11. I'm not too crazy about Scandinavia myself, haha!
    And i'd move to Tokyo in a heartbeat if it was possible... so Berlin will have to be the next best thing!
