It suddenly got quiet here

That’s mainly because I am pretty busy preparing the move to London and all that’s associated with it. There’s a lot to do and it seems to be more every day – but it’s a lot of fun moving abroad again.

We (Nicolas, my former and future housemate ) found a beautiful flat in Islington, a really nice neighborhood in the northeastern part of London. Not only will the commute be manageable, by a lucky coincidence a lot of my London friends also live pretty close. Nicolas is already on the ground in London, so the apartment hunt was very easy for me (“Oh, you found a place. Awesome.”). I understand that this was supposed to be how I get to know the city a bit (and see a lot of other people’s bathrooms), but what can I do…

This coming weekend I will be in London to set up my life in the Kingdom and, more importantly, adjust to left sided traffic. I am still quite certain that this is the biggest safety hazard I will encounter, so hold your thumbs for me on this one.

  1. Don't worry, you might feel like beeing in driver's school first (as of concentration and efforts required), but it takes by average only a couple of minutes driving to get used to it! Though there's still danger waiting in some more complex roundabouts or at larger intersections afterwards… 🙂

  2. I will reach out and email is still the best way to reach me in return. Let’s fly London – Augustin, my mom would be very happy about that!

  3. Morning Sir ;-),
    enjoy the time in the city and let me know how to reach you. We will be in the area in the end of June, probably staying in Richmond.
    … Dann kann ich Dich also gar nicht mit dem Flieger in Augustin besuchen – war letzte Woche fast dort, musste dann aber wegen Wetter nach Paderborn abbiegen…
    Meld Dich! Schöne Grüße,

  4. I dont have a car and I do not plan on owning one soon. i am biking, so this
    whole thing might be even worse 🙂 But, since I will move over in smaller
    increments, I hope to adjust slowly but surely. And get hit by a truck back
    in Germany, where I feel all safe.
