It’s late on Friday, but I still like to share my monthly Friday Link Love with you. Here are some articles, and tweets that I’ve clipped over the last weeks as well as some videos. Articles I’d like to share my friend’s article about workplace diversity on D!gitalist Magazine. In the global world of today, this […]
Just a random post because it is National Bratwurst Day. Yes, that’s right. I wouldn’t have known, but Huffington Post keeps me posted about important stuff like that 😉 Celebrate National Bratwurst Day. I’ve actually planned pasta for the family’s dinner, but I will definitely grill these sausages from Costco tonight too.
Bake a bread! You know what every German replies when asked “What do you miss about Germany?” “The bread!” (and probably “Brötchen”, too) That’s why I want to share my favorite bread recipe with you. It’s super easy, delicious and it comes pretty close to a good German “Körnerbrot” (whole grain or seed bread). The […]
Yosemite Of course. This is one of the best spots, if not THE greatest place in the Golden State. You feel small and irrelevant when you enter this spectacular valley which is full of natural beauties. River and waterfalls, mountains and gorges, cliffs and meadows, so many trails for hikers and rock faces for climbing lovers.
I’ve had the ultimate German grocery shopping experience today! The first time in more than eight years and I got to shop “ALDI” in California. OMG! I was in heaven.

My post from yesterday was a bit blah. Happy birthday to me! We had a wonderful night with close friends, champagne and cake at midnight and […]
If you have ever been to California, you hopefully have seen the most beautiful stretch of Highway 1 between Carmel-by-the-sea and Cambria. And if you haven’t been to the Golden State yet, make sure you won’t miss this part, because it is the most amazing coastline. Do it on a sunny day because clouds will spoil […]
Words of the day
Tell me, what you will do with your one wild and precious life?

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!
