About Me


13339497_1054186487951572_5550137296981922558_n The living in Germany page and the corresponding face book page, started out being something like a hobby about 5 years ago.

We had met a bunch of new Americans that had moved into the village we lived in, and i tried to bring Germany closer to them and help them with day trips, bills or just every day life.

I started with a little blog and moved to a page my friend provided to me for free; until finally a couple years ago, when I got my very own website. Recently i gained the opportunity to write for a printed Magazine for Americans in Germany, that is ran for the Stuttgart area.

If your a newcomer or even if you have been here for a bit this page may be for you.

There is just so much information out there… I thought it would be a great idea to put it all down in writing.

So, here it is. If you are looking for a site that will tell you about Cuckoo clocks and Dirndls this would not be the site for you. Why? Well, because most of us Germans do not own a Cuckoo clock or a vast collection of beer steins.

However, if you need help on store’s opening hours, what trash bin the yogurt cup goes in or where to go for the weekend, you have come to the right place.

I really do try to do my very best  to sit down and write when ever I get a chance
and add information, but:

I am a part time working mom of 2, English is not my maiden language either; people that know me personally, also know I tend to a little Zoo of my own at home.
I have 2 beautiful teenage daughters, one of them is chronically ill. And my hubby does like to see and spend time with me every once and a while too…. so time is limited

I am always happy about constructive criticism, I love it, when people send me things to add to the page.

please keep that in mind when you find spelling mistakes or there is something missing on the page.

Hopefully my volunteer work is helping someone out there
