Quarantine Diary: Andrea Bury in Berlin, Germany

June 10, 2020

Andrea Bury, founder of Abury, shares her quarantine experience while at home in Berlin, Germany

  • Where are you quarantined, since when and with who?

I am in Berlin. I'm living in a flatshare together with a friend and his two daughters, aged 9 and 14. They spend around half of the time with us. We've been in quarantine since mid/end March. I actually really like having them around from time to time and supporting them with some of their home schooling. I now understand as well how hard it must be for single mums at the moment.

  • What has been your best quarantine activity?

Cycling and discovering the beautiful surroundings of Berlin (Grunewald etc.)

  • What fun things are you doing online to stay connected to your family, friends and team?

Nothing too sophisticated to be honest. With family, we send a lot of funny pictures through our family WhatsApp group.

  • Helping from home: are you supporting any particular nonprofit or relief efforts?

We are going shopping for the elderly in our area. It's easy to do and not a big deal but it's a great help for some.

  • How do you stay positive and keep calm?

I am generally a very calm and positive person. I always try to focus on the positive things and to be constructive, meaning to see what you can do with the current situation and make the best out of it.

  • Complete the sentence:

Being in quarantine has given me a new appreciation for silence, nature and home.

  • What's the first thing you want to do post-quarantine?

Maybe have dinner in a nice restaurant as I am not a great cook and it's gotten a bit monotonous in the kitchen! ;)
