Yes, I am slowly getting excited with moving to Berlin. Hence, I have bought a guidebook; I figured it would be great to read about what the city has to offer beforehand, and have a little book I can consult every now and then. I remember my parents doing that every time they moved. I remember that the very first Lonely Planet we owned was Lonely Planet Micronesia, which we bought in Japan before we moved to Guam.
Unfortunately, there wasn't a Lonely Planet Buffalo, or Lonely Planet Western New York, so when I moved to Buffalo in 2005, I didn't have anything to consult. I just did my research using other means. Now, I believe there is a Lonely Planet New York State, but, as I have been living here for seven years now, I don't really need it anymore.
So, I bought myself a Lonely Planet Berlin. It's time to get familiar with the city I will call home next. Speaking of which, I am already processing my paperwork for my impending move. I am supposed to report to work on September 15, so things are getting there. Come to think of it, it's less than two months away!
