That one-way ticket

Six years ago today, I reset my life in Berlin, Germany as a voluntary migrant. At this point, I have spent more time here than in San Francisco OR Mountain view. In about two years, that operator will be an AND.

It was beyond words incredible that my desire to live in Europe for more than twenty years became a reality. It still feels incredible. I am not sure this feeling will ever be lost on me.

Over the past six years, I have learned C1-level German and A2-level Hungarian, and have maintained my Finnish and Mandarin, and have started learning Russian.
