I’m selling all my stuff and moving to Germany

by jennine on February 2, 2008

It’s true. I bought the ticket, turned in my notice at work. I’ll be leaving in March…

Going to Europe for love, and for love of adventure. You know, I thought I’d never fall in love again, nor would I ever leave San Francisco… It goes to show how vivid my imagination is. But everything seems to be falling in place, it’s time… and I feel real good about the move. My boyfriend is German, and needs to go back home to finish his degree. We talked about it a lot, and decided we didn’t want to be apart. He has a lovely place to live… and I have lived abroad before, I went to college in London, so I won’t be far away from my friends. And I know I can always come back.

Anyway, I’ll be selling a good chunk of my stuff on eBay and Etsy… right now I’m sorting all the stuff I think I can part with. Marc Jacob shoes, I harldy wear… a blue sparkly shirt.. etc.

So check back in tomorrow, I’ll have more details. I mean, if you’re interested in buying any of my clothes.

Oh my gosh! I’m so excited! This is just amazing… Mary, yes, I’m planning on learning Deutsch, although, I keep calling my class the shpraklekoors (which drives rocky crazy). And I’d LOVE to do a bloggers get together in Berlin… Fenke, It would so great to meet you!

I’m not leaving Europe w/o going to both Spain & France

And Susie, you bet… you know I have a great fondness for London, and I’m certainly going to be there.

(I’m sooooo excited!)

What an amazing adventure! Best of luck to you! I’m hoping to be moving to San Francisco by the summer — not half as mighty of a move, but still a meaningful one for me!

Arggh…That’s awesome! You’re lucky! I want to do something like that someday.

Oh my! You’re selling your shoes?!?!?! I wish you wore my size. :[ It’s just oh so terribly DEVASTATING to see all of those gorgeous shoes slip past me because my feet are too big. -cries-
Good luck, darlin’!

Congratulations! What an adventure. I do hope you’ll share some information about the process. For instance, how do you plan to handle employment abroad? Thanks!

Wow! i’m so happy for you! that is so cool and exciting! i’ll miss your presence in the neighbor hood though. i’d love to buy some of your stuff, i’m sure it’s so hard to decide on what to give away or sell etc. too bad i wouldn’t fit any of your shoes, you have amazing taste. you’ll have to keep up the blogging you’re so great at coming up with interesting/ inspiring things.

Holy sh!tballs! I’m so excited for you! And I’ll definitely keep my eye out for ebay auctions.

Where in Germany, may I ask? I loved it there, despite all of the (largely nonexistent) stereotypes.


25 Claudia February 9, 2008 at 6:06 am

hey, that’s cool! frankfurt isn’t half as bad if you know your way around. there are lots of nice little cafés and markets. and in summer the main river is a great place to hang out and have a picnic.
if you want some tips or have a coffee, send me an email.
