Friends, I can hardly believe it’s been a whole three months since I’ve been in this space. The year very literally started off with a flu diagnosis, then got swallowed up by jet lag, long work days, intense deadlines, and half-marathon training (Heidelberg in a few weeks!). On those evenings when I didn’t have to hit the gym, I was working late, and then on the weekends I tended to avoid my laptop as much as possible. Quite honestly, that probably won’t be changing much in the immediate future, but this post counts for something, doesn’t it?
So let’s get on with it! A few weeks ago, I was super excited to be invited to do a week-long takeover of the Mein Bremen (My Bremen) Instagram account, tasked with sharing my own perspective of the city. I’ve only done one other Instagram takeover before this (LOVEBREMEN), but I knew it would be a lot of fun to interact with nearly 8 times as many followers as I have on my own account! It was definitely something of a time commitment, since I wanted to make sure to share my best photos with my own unique perspective. Plus my captions and comments were in German, which just took me a bit longer to write and proofread than when I write them in English. Plus I was spreading the love as often as possible in the #MeinBremen community, adding to the InstaStories, and keeping up with my own Instagram account. But I loved every second of it!
Since I’m most in love with the city’s architecture, that’s where I took my inspiration from for the week. I highly encourage you to take a look over at Mein Bremen to see my photos (and everyone else’s!) in all their glory — but here are a few of my favorites from the week.
Many thanks to Mein Bremen for the invitation! It’s actually quite appropriate that my first blog post in months is about Instagram, since it’s basically where I’ve been micro-blogging anyway all this time. :)
Happy Easter to everyone who celebrates, and happy April to all!
