I moved from my wonderful apartment in Somerville back to my parents' house this past Sunday. Most of my things are still in boxes because I need to clear out a lot of stuff in my childhood bedroom before I can put away my current things. But by the end of December all of my favorite clothes and cooking supplies will be packed up again, in suitcases this time, and flying with me to Berlin.

The most important thing I need to do this week is sign up for international health insurance. I am going to get a plan through Allianz Worldwide Care but I am not yet sure what to sign up for. It's too bad that I am leaving my job as an after school teacher, not only because I'll miss my first graders terribly, but also because I'm giving up my full health and dental insurance coverage. *sigh* It will be okay though. I'm so thrilled to be moving to Germany that problems like this aren't even getting to me.

So what is this blog going to be about? Definitely not health insurance, I promise. I've been wanting to start a vegan food blog for a while but I never really had a strong point of view or creativity in my cooking and simply never got around to it. But now that I am moving to Berlin, which is full of exciting vegan things, believe it or not, I think I have a good excuse to start a blog. I will write about my day to day life, post photos of the delicious food I cook, and describe the adventures I hope to have in country where I don't (yet) speak the language.

Oh, and the title, "go buy altitude, it's the best game ever"? That came out of the conversation I had with Shawn (the one I'm moving to Berlin for) when I asked him what I should name it.


what should I name my blog?

blogs are lame

actually name it "go buy altitude, it's the best game ever"

And so I did. I'll even put a link to his game

Sprechen Sie Vegan is the real title though. All I really need to understand is if my food is vegan, right?
