In 2012, I got sick of living a mediocre life that left me lacking and unhappy and decided to move to Germany. Given that I wasn’t rich and didn’t have a rich backing, I found that I could become an au pair in order to secure free housing, food, medical insurance and still be paid to be there. Through my time in Germany I experienced many ups and downs that ultimately landed me back in the US for two years.
I went back to work, got back into my relationship but soon found something was just missing. I travelled within the US, staying in New York City and adding the Gulf of Mexico as one of my favorite locations to visit, but still wanted to return to Germany with my entire heart. One day, similar to the day that I decided to go abroad the first time, I decided to make a new profile online just to see what was out there. I am a firm believer that life will pull you exactly in the direction to where you are meant to be, and within three days I had secured a three month stay in Germany again.
Today, I am living, breathing, seeing and sharing life as an American expat living in Germany with you- how it happens, as it happens. Join me for the good, the bad, the funny and the crazy as I experience this life once again and travel through Europe.
