GW Expat Blogger Laura Vásquez.

Laura is a dog enthusiast, amateur singer, storyteller, and cook – and of course madly in love with Germany for more than 15 years and counting. A six-year-long ping-pong game of bouncing between Mexico and Germany was the result of said love. The good news? It’s finally coming to an end in the very, very near future. Germany will become my permanent place of residence.

Places Laura has called home: Mexico City, Guadalajara, Berlin, and Karlsruhe.
