A small journey with big consequences

Thursday night to Saturday morning.
It was a quick, little trip to Berlin, but one so important that i was having trouble sleeping and even eating (never a problem for me!) in the days leading up to it.
Our meeting was on Friday, and what we though was a meeting to sign a contract turned out to be something completely different, but it went well anyway.
Really well.
Well enough so that i can finally announce here, and on the other blog, that we are for sure moving to Berlin, hopefully in the beginning of December.
You can't imagine my relief, after so much not knowing. I didn't even know how unhappy and tense i was because of all of this, until it was suddenly over and i found myself able to breathe and be excited about things again.
Right now i'm even excited about London this weekend, and Tokyo right after, trips that were only causing me stress just a few days ago.
We're not gonna have a lot of time to pack, and we still need to sort out just how exactly we're gonna get all of our stuff from Copenhagen to Berlin, but i'm not even sweating it much.
I'm just fucking excited to have gotten the most amazing place against all odds.

Straight from work to the airport

Good to see this dude and his brother again

Only a few hours before the meeting, killing time on Urbanstrasse

After the meeting our lovely real estate lady took us and our translator Ewa to the house (which had somehow gotten bigger and better since last time)

Hello new home

Out for coffee in our pretty new neighborhood, after exploring and measuring at the house

Morning train to the airport

From the airport to the country side to pick up this dude

My brother and his wife had looked after Lucifer... Gilbert, and Carla the dog, helped, i'm sure

Sorry for the nephew spam, but i don't get to see this guy often enough

Such a little poser

This is what our home looks like now, but i don't mind, i've wanted it to look like this for a long, long time

Now, if you'll excuse me, i need to look up moving companies and maybe fix a particularly nasty headache with a cup of coffee and some water.


  1. I am getting excited just by reading all your stuff on here and on Twitter.

  2. I can't believe it's actually happening!
    I think you and Lindsay were the first people we told when we started thinking about it, and if you guys hadn't been so supportive, maybe we would have just dropped it? So thanks!
    I can't wait for you to visit, we'll have guest rooms, so start planning a trip next year.

  3. Aww if you had told us we would have supported you for sure!! E probably would have helped with some translating!!

  4. I'm sure he would haven, but luckily i've been able to get by with my google translating skills up until it got serious and Sascha took over :)

  5. this is such exciting news, and I'm so happy for you that you found somewhere you love (and that looks so incredible - I'm a nosey instagrammer!!) also, your overnight bag in the airport picture is stunning haha! x

  6. It's awesome seeing/hearing you so excited, you've wanted to move for so long!

    Congratulations lovely :)

  7. I love this post! I love hearing that you are happy and it's going well but most of all I just love that picture of you and Allan! It's adorable! Oh and of course Lucifer and Gilbert <3

  8. Yay! Congratulations and good luck with all your trips and packing and moving and, well, everything!!! I know how it feels to want to be somewhere else but it's the best feeling in the world when you finally get there.

    Yay again!! ;-p

  9. Yaaaa congrats, how exciting, i know how it feels like to move to a different country and it is freaking exciting!!! Best of luck to you guys. And what aobut some interiour shots of the place!!!

  10. Thanks!! I'll post some shots when we move there, it's hard to take pictures when it's all dark and empty. But it's great inside too!

  11. Yeah, they're pretty cute too :)

  12. I'm having a hard time believing it, but i am super happy! Hope your move went well!

  13. thats super duper excited for you all! I can't wait to see all your progress..

  14. Thanks, it might be slow progress since there's just the two of us to do everything!

  15. Yeah, i can't wait till it's really real and we're there to stay!

  16. Thanks, it's from Urban Outfitters, cheap too!

  17. Ooh goood! It will be so fantastic for you! Wish you all the best!
