Swapnil (or Swap as his friends call him) has been living in Berlin for over two years after moving from Bangalore, India. Swap is an adventurous traveller and curious person who loves to try new activities and find the next best bars and cafes. Professionally, he is a Senior Software Engineer who works building technology. We’re so lucky to have him as a part of our LifeX community!
What’s your favourite thing about living in Berlin?
The public transportation, the late night unlocked city, the summer vibe, the young crowd, the huge number of activities available, the socialising aspect and of course the parties!
Experiencing different parts of the world and cultures brings in a lot of perspective. After coming here, firstly, I realised the value of the sun that we always took for granted.Then I also miss the amazing chaos and liveliness, the animals, the delicious food in every street and every corner, the comfort of understanding your own language and last but not the least the lack of so much german bureaucracy 😉
I’m a Software Engineer with a graduate in Chemical Engineering and masters of Maths. I love how there are so many amazing problems to solve and it can all be done using the same keyboard that we all use to type.
Last favourite I remember is Kultur der Karneval Berlin (pictured below), I danced for quite a few hours. And the Christmas market time is pretty good too with all the Glühwein 😉
The great Indian Thalis! As pictured below and yes, these are single meals!
I unconsciously whistle while doing things and I won’t remember when you ask the name of the song. I can also hold my breath for 3 mins (not sure if this is fun fact)
Hypocrites and McDonald lovers.
Midnight youtube videos marathon (and the amazing youtube algorithm) and reading amazing comments combined with a bit of dessert.
I can whistle like birds and call animals 😗 And the rest you might find here!
