My Hamburg Song

If Hamburg were a living breathing person.

I would fall madly, deeply and passionately in love with it.

My four-month stay in Hamburg is the most wonderful experience that has ever happened in my twenty plus year of living in this world. From the people I met to the places I visited, everything has been the most life-changing experience.

I’m not going to lie, when I arrived here I was very anxious. I was worried about a lot of things, starting from where I’m going to live because -at that time- I didn’t have a place to stay to the fact that I hardly speak German. My German is extremely limited to ordering food and just that.

So, naturally, before I came here I did a little research on the internet and what I found was:

  1. In their ‘Under the Iron Sea’ album, Keane wrote a song titled Hamburg Song.
  2. My favorite Beatle, George Harrison, was deported from Hamburg for being under-age.

Not really useful information.

Though, despite everything, I did eventually enjoy my stay here in Hamburg. Once I found a place to settle, I began to explore the city. I met some of the most interesting people, worked with the most diverse mix of colleagues, ate the most delicious food and visited some of the most beautiful places.

Sadly, my time here in Hamburg is coming to an end.

There are definitely a lot of things I will miss. My friends, the very efficient public transportation Hamburg has to offer, falafels, Otto’s burger…well basically everything.

I will miss everything.

Hamburg has been a great experience that I shall forever cherish.
