  • Why will I get a stiff fine if I only leave a note on the parked car I dinged?
Book cover

PUBLISHER: HUMBOLDT AMERICAN PRESS

These are just some of the topics the German Way Expat Blog team members have been writing about since 2008. In the corresponding book, Germany for Beginners: The German Way Expat Guide, you’ll profit from the real-life experiences of eight German Way writers who have been there and done that.

Expat life in Germany can include glorious outings to Alpine castles, bratwurst and mugs of beer in the local Biergarten, and weekly shopping trips to the farmer’s market on the colorful local square. But it also can mean isolation, displacement, unemployment, and exclusion. With blunt honesty the authors address these issues and many more. How do I deal with homesickness? How can I make friends in my new country? How do I deal with being a trailing spouse? These are vital matters that rarely get covered in your standard expat “how to” guidebook. You don’t have to do this alone!
