Speaking Denglish

http://www.speaking-denglish.com/

Living in the land of pretzels and punctuality seems to agree with Alex, a non-German-speaking Texan who intended to live short-term in Deustchland, but has found herself still there 6 years later. This 'Texpat' blogger/student/small business owner shares her adventures and tips (such as how to find a student job in Germany and the real experience of flat hunting in Munich) whilst she pursues a Master’s Degree.

Lehrer Werkstatt

https://mrsralf.wordpress.com/

Lehrer Werkstatt focuses on living and teaching in Germany. Initially Kathleen's impression was how similar Germany was to her American home, but before long she began to get under the skin of the weird and wonderful differences of a land where beer is often cheaper than water.

Having lived in Germany for 3 years, Danielle hasn't just fallen in love with a local lad, but the language chicanery of Deustchland.

Share her linguistic discoveries and a plethora of travel adventures.

Back To Berlin And Beyond

http://ianandebe.blogspot.co.uk/

Ebe and Ian are Seattle expatriates with a penchant for mischief and an addiction for travel. Alongside their everyday adventures, with a Berlin-specific resource page, advice to aspiring expats and some rather unique German housing experiences (including starring in a TV programme), Back to Berlin...and Beyond is a wonderful journal of their experiences.

Monkeys And Mountains

http://monkeysandmountains.com/

Professional travel blogger Laurel believes that adventure travel is the key to transformation. Originally working for a university in Calgary, Canada, she dreamed of an escape from long winter months - booking a swimming session with sharks, on the same trip she met a German who whisked off for a life of escapades and adventures in Europe. With a selection of expat tips and advice on active ways to explore Europe, Monkeys and Mountains is a fascinating read.

Submerged Oaks

http://www.submergedoaks.com/

Aaron and Meghan say that they are just an average, twenty-something married couple, but scuba-diving addicted engineers who moved from Detroit to Germany after a quick discussion aren't run-of-the-mill expats.

Blogging their adventures, they share tips on how to drink with Germans, the rules of picking bi-nationality baby names (for instance, one rule is that the name may not endanger the wellbeing of the child) and the oddness of throwing Thanksgiving in a pie-free country.
