We're still in this expat limbo phase, but have made so much progress these past few weeks. As it turns out the Germans take their Grundlichkeit very seriously (even as a half German I didn't expect it to be that way) and so we've spent the past weeks mostly on getting a bunch of paperwork together. Basically no paperwork = no apartment/job/life... important stuff!
You may have seen on my Instagram feed (or Snapchat!**) that we spent a few days in Berlin last week to look for an apartment. Well, the lack of the complete paperwork package was a bit of an inconvenience, but at least we got to explore the city as future residents (opposed to tourists) and we now have a really good idea of where we want to live (hey Berlin Mitte!)... ideally.
We may have found a beautiful apartment for April, which means that we can officially move (on) in two weeks and then start the hunting full-force. Can't wait!
