Re: Expat mamas how do you make friends?
I'm so sorry to hear about your husband's job loss! It's great that he found something new but it sucks that you guys had to move so far away for that.
Yeah, I know the different dialects in Germany are hard to understand sometimes. I had a friend in college who was from up north (where they speak proper German - Hochdeutsch) and she could hardly understand the older locals in Bavaria.
So are you planing on moving to the US some day or are you going to stay in Germany? Are you raising your son bilingual? If so, how is that working out so far?
I am from a small village about an hour away from Nuernberg, Bavaria.
Before my husband and I moved to the States almost one and a half years ago we went to the Schwarzwald on vacation. It's a beautiful area and it reminds me a little of Bavaria.
