Brought to you in partnership with On Running and The Cloudaway Agency. We partnered to offer our community an alternative way to feed that need for new horizons with a series of guides and getaways inside their own city limits.
Writer, editor and photographer Octavia Bürgel has been a New Yorker for much of her life but “moved to Berlin on whim” in October 2019. Drawn to the city’s vibrant culture and her personal link to it, she quickly found her feet within Berlin’s creative scene and has become an important part of it. Now an associate editor at the influential 032c Magazine, Octa is able to use her work and writings to investigate all the cultural happenings within the city.
Over the time she has spent in Berlin, Octa has found her favourite spots to eat, shop and chill with friends and has learnt the ins-and-outs of Germany’s capital, somewhere she now considers a second home. As a person of dual German-African American heritage, her experience of the country has not always been easy, but over time, she has been able to cultivate a community of friends that understand her identity and have helped her settle in. From offbeat reading-rooms and pizza places to small wine bars and out-of-city lake getaways, Octa takes us Trippin across the city in the Cloudaway.
