My weekly ramble No. 30 Finally I get to share more of my happy place with you. Hopfen am See (Hopfen-by-the-lake) is a little lakeside village that belongs to Füssen. It’s located in the state of Bavaria and the Southeast of the Allgäu. Most people probably know Neuschwanstein, the castle that served as a model for the […]
My first link love post of 2018 – yay! Did you make New Year’s resolutions? Usually we do, but this year we didn’t. Oh well, usually I’m also sharing these links on the second Friday of the month in a Friday Link Love, but I was busy hosting a birthday party for a teenager yesterday. […]

That’s why this December Link Love is rather short. If you have a book or and interesting article you want to share, please comment! Thank […]
It’s the most wonderful time of the year…. and for a German this time is especially shaped by Weihnachtsmärkte (Christmas markets). A Christmas market is a street market associated with the celebration of Christmas during the four weeks of Advent and I’m sure that almost every single German citizen visits at least one each year.

I’m Kathrin, a German who’s been living the last 9 years in the crazy world of Silicon Valley. Even though I love our life in California, I’m still missing Köln (Cologne) and the German lifestyle a lot. On this blog I share some of my stories and ruminate about what home really means. I’m a mother of two girls and the wife of an iSlave, a teacher, a social introvert and very passionate about the things I do.
I’m glad you’re here! Schön, dass du hier bist!
