Hallo! My name is Aryn. A lot of people I meet have a surprising amount of trouble saying it. Those people tend to call me “Anne.” French people tend to call me “Irène.” I’ll let you decide for yourselves.
I’m married to Jon, an academic and the reason we moved to Berlin…twice. The first time, he was doing research for his dissertation in something German which most people find a little boring, but that’s what makes it an amazing dissertation topic. Since then, we’ve — yes WE — earned a Ph.D and have returned to Berlin to do some postdoctoral work, This bog is all about exploring Berlin, often with our 5-year-old in tow.
