I signed up for 9flats because for me visiting another continent, country, city I am interested in getting an idea of how it feels to live there. Staying in an apartment/ private housing feels more like that than staying in a hotel. Since I spent two times half a year in Massachusetts and New Jersey during my Internships in 2005/ 2006, I love to come back to dig into the American way of life again ;). My job as a Brand Manager in a medical device producing company in the south part of Germany and being married with no kids leave me enough possibilities to visit my favorite country at least twice a year. My passion(s)?? I love to browse around for all kind of “nice” things and I like sports like running, skating, Yoga…My dream is to one day run the NYC marathon in November- so far I did water volunteering twice when I lived here but I prepare for this goal with regularly participating in half marathons in my city here.
