I Said I Do To Berlin!
So today it was a very special day, I went to Wedding in Berlin for a very significant date. After long lines, rain, and filling out so much paperwork, it’s finally official…
“Follow your bliss and the universe will open doors where there were once only walls.”
The past 3 months I have been traveling around Europe. Many times I felt like I was day dreaming, but then I realized that I was here, present in the moment. I have been enjoying the stunning landscapes, discovering new cultures, talking to the locals (or just using non-verbal signs), enjoying unique, almost fairy tale moments that are so special to my heart!
Many times (as a true New Yorker), I was impatient because people walked so slow ahead of me, or I got lost and couldn’t ask or receive clear directions because of language barriers, or the waiter didn’t bring the bill right away, or just simply because they brought me sparkling water and not natural…LOL.
Culture shock at first, it’s all about getting used to it. At the end, these months have taught me so much about myself, about the way I see life and the way I want to live it from now on. I know that I am right where I need to be at this second.
The most amazing thing about traveling solo is finding people on your way that you would have never met otherwise, laughing with them, singing with them and getting lost in the middle of a city. I have been blessed to find so many angels that only God and the universe would have been able to put in my way. They not only extended a helping hand but most of them have become the closest of friends. This is the beauty of traveling!
Today, I went to obtain my German / Schengen visa and I’m pleased to announce that I’m officially a Berliner (got married to berlin lol)! I’m relocating to Europe, although I will be back and forth to New York and the U.S. for business and, of course, as a travel writer. I will be jet-setting around the world, but now I get to call Germany my new home. I’m joining the Berlin community, the Silicon Valley of Europe, a city full of creative people like myself. Even though in my heart I will always be a New Yorker, this is a time for change. And I’m going for it! Thank you to the universe and all the people that simply believe in me.
She believed she could so she did!
