Working online can be interesting, but it can also lead to a writer feeling somewhat isolated. Some of our current six German Way Expat Bloggers have met each other in person, but not everyone has met everyone in our group face-to-face. I have met most of them in person myself, always somewhere in Germany.
Besides myself (in the USA), our team includes Jane (Germany), Ruth (Canada), Chloë (Germany), Sarah (Germany) and Erin (Germany). Several other expat bloggers have left us (including the only other male), but are still in touch. We had a blogger Treff (get-together) in Heidelberg back in the summer of 2009. My wife and I had the pleasure of meeting Jane and Sarah, and their spouses at Sarah’s home near Heidelberg. It’s hard to believe that five years have zoomed by since then (in which time Sarah and her family moved to Ireland and then back to Germany).
