We moved to Germany! To Hamburg in fact. Richard's company sent us here on a temporary three month assignment, and we are beyond enthused to experience living abroad as expats if even for a short time.
Hamburg is the second largest city in Germany, and also the second largest port city in Europe, hence why we're here: Richard works in international supply chain logistics. It's an affluent and beautiful city. Voted Europe's greenest, it boasts a lush landscape with rivers, lakes and canals with plenty of opportunities for waterside patio drinking (if you know me, you know patio drinks are my #1 hobby in life with bonus points for views). Even more specific, our humble abode is located in the Harvestehude neighborhood of Hamburg, just a five minute walk from Lake Alster and a 20 minute walk from Richard's work.
Before I delve into Hamburg, today marks just one week in Europe, so with jet lag still lingering I'm ashamed to say I've spent more time inside the four walls of our new digs than I have actually being out exploring my new city. (Please cut me some slack! I'm working remote too with clients nine hours behind). Luckily, our apartment is so cozy and stunning that there could be way worse places to work through a jet lag hangover.
Here I kick off my travel blog (per my Auntie's request, I see you Tina!) with a tour of our gorgeous new digs: Pinch me!
