I'm Jennie and my partner is Joerg. I'm Australian and teach English literature and cultural studies in the English Department at Freie Universität Berlin. Joerg is born and bred in the vicinity of Berlin and works as a lawyer in a local firm. We've been living together in Berlin for the last 5 years and wouldn't want to live anywhere else. We're lucky to live in Kreuzberg, one of the most vibrant and artistic areas of Berlin and we love it here for the cafes, the trees, the beautiful old gas lanterns, our local haunts where everyone knows us, the boules tournaments just around the corner on the promenade by the canal, the freestyle DJs that set up in the park down the road on warm summer evenings, and the miles and miles of bike paths that can take us right out of the city.
