Hi, I‘m Fränzi from Germany. I’ve been living in Berlin for more than 10 years now, moved there to study and stayed there for work. I fell in love with the city over the past years and am so happy to call it home. However, ever since I spent a year abroad as an Au Pair in the United States after finishing highschool, I always knew I wanted to spend time traveling. So I decided to take some time off work (I used to be a Brand Manager) to travel the world. I decided to travel Europe first. I’ve been to a lot of European places already, but it’s always only been for a short vacation that was packed with so many things to do and see. What I want to do now is really get to know places, stay there for a little while, meet locals, get a sense of what life is like here and there.
Since I’ve always been someone that had everything planned out weeks in advance, I‘m excited for the chance to try new things, get out of my comfort zone and just see what’s next.
I love to sing and play the piano. Recently, I’ve been enjoying baking a lot, trying different recipes for cakes and tartes. I also discovered my love for arts and crafts (lettering, making birthday cards, makramee). Love reading crime novels and watching travel documentaries. Big fan of discovering a city by just walking around, huge fan of trying new restaurants and cafés!
I just spent 1.5 months in the Netherlands, discovered places like Amsterdam, Delft, Leiden, The Hague, Rotterdam, Utrecht, and Haarlem, and also tried some things I have never done before: walking across mud flats or kite surfing, to name just two, both a fun adventure! I also joined my Dutch roommate in his morning yoga and meditation routine right at the beach which was an amazing experience.
When I was a kid, I used to have piano lessons and still love to play when visiting my parents. I also used to sing in a choir and even was part of a big open air opera production when I was a teenager. Recently, I started with lettering and makramee, and surprised friends and family with DIY birthday cards and flower hangers. :) also started baking and really enjoy trying recipes for fancy cakes and tartes.
I feel comfortable working in the garden and around the house. When I moved to my new apartment in Berlin, I painted some walls myself and managed the move with help of friends and family, so I‘ve done a bit of handy work before. I‘m happy to take care of animals, especially walking dogs, as I grew up with a dog and used to walk my friend’s dog in Berlin.
I joined the buddy program at both companies I worked for full time to welcome and onboard new hires. Furthermore, I volunteered to be a “big sister” to a child from a refugee family in 2019 and generally enjoy working with people.
