Who are you and what are you doing in Bremen?
My name is Duygu (pronounced „Duigu“ – Turkish word for „emotion“). I´m 25, a student of media culture and love everything media-related. I’d consider myself an „internetperson“ – One of my mottoes is „home is where I know the WiFi password“. Apart from being online all day long I love to go window-shopping with friends (my bank account is also emptied regularly because of excessive online shopping…). I´m also a football fanatic and die-hard supporter of Werder Bremen.
What’s your Twitter account?
My private twitter account is @Duigooo . Expect lots of randomness! I warned you…
Are you originally from Bremen? If not, what’s your story?
Born and raised. I cannot think of another place to live. Whenever I´m out of Bremen for a longer period of time I come back and kiss the pavement first. My parents are originally from Turkey – so for me I prefer not to identify soleley with nationality but with the city I live in. Whenever someone asks me if I feel more German or Turkish (one of the top spots on my „frequently asked questions“ list by the way), I just reply with „Ich bin Bremerin“.
What do you like most of Bremen?
Good question. I love its size – it’s not huge but not too small either. I love its people and its diversity. You’ll just find all sorts of folks here.
What’s your favourite place in Bremen?
Without a doubt: the Weserstadion. I´ve experienced wonderful and very tragic moments in there.
What’s your top 5 list of things to do in Bremen?
Going to a football game of Werder Bremen at the Weserstadion
Shopping at the Waterfront – Besides the crowd of people walking around with gigantic bags from Primark – A shopping mall no one should miss on a trip to Bremen
Eating at El Mundo – very nice restaurant in the Überseestadt – my stomach approves!
Visiting the Rathaus – Unesco World Heritage, just standing in front of it you can feel and smell its history
Taking a walk at the Bürgerpark – Definitely a must-do!
