Hello and welcome to my blog!
First of all I want to thank you for reading my blog. I appreciate your time and hope that I am providing useful information to you. Please let me know, if you have any topic that you are interested in and is not yet covered in my blog. I am happy for any new ideas and suggestions!
But why am I writing about living abroad? Because I am an expert? Certainly not. But it is part of my life! I went to live abroad several times in my life. I think going abroad is like a virus, once you have been bitten by the expat-bug, it will never let you go. Living abroad, whether as an expat, a student, intern or au pair will change you forever. It is an exciting adventure and I want to share my experience and tips with you to make your dream of living in a foreign country come true.
The first time I went abroad was when I was 16. I came to the US as a High School exchange student. After my graduation, I went back to Germany, but I knew that I will return to my life abroad eventually. Six years later, I finally made it back to America and finished my Bachelor in sunny San Diego. As life in the US was nothing new for me, I decided to spice things up a little and went to Beijing, China for an internship. Going abroad while being abroad – the definition of home became very blurry at that time… Working in a completely different culture was certainly not easy, but I learned a lot from this adventure. After my internship I returned to San Diego to continue my studies. I have been back for about one year now and I start to hear this faint voice in the back of my head: “Let’s go Maria, where to next?”
