Stories from my life and travels as an American immigrant in Germany!


Jessie Meier oaeblogMy name is Jessie, and I’m a 35-year-old American living in Wolfsburg, Germany with my husband. We moved here from the Detroit area in July of 2017. This blog originally started out as a place for me to share my opinions and to occasionally post short stories. Since moving, it has evolved into a travel and expat/immigrant experience blog.

Here, you will find anecdotal evidence about how life in Germany is awesome, occasional lighthearted complaining, embarrassing stories from my failed attempts to communicate with the natives, and travel stories.
