Amongst the Kiwis: An American PhD Student in New Zealand

This blog describes my experiences as a postgraduate student in moving to Christchurch, New Zealand, which is a city still in the process of rebuilding after its earthquake. I point out differences compared to both the U.S. and U.K. where I've lived previously.

Doitsu Gaijin Memoir

2 years ago

Since July 2013 I am living with my family in New Zealand. In August 2012 I started to write this blog about Japan in German but many readers from abroad wanted an English blog. I am not perfect but I try my best :). My husband is Japanese and I am German. In our intercultural marriage we have many funny encounters in daily life, some misunderstanding and we are learning about each other cultures. William Shakespeare wrote about Othello and Desdemona, I am writing about us, first hand! I lived and worked for 9 years in Singapore. After a short stay in Japan we moved to Dubai and I spent three wonderful years as housewife and mother there. In 2010 we moved back to Japan only to leave again in 2013 for New Zealand. The original website is written in German and you can find it here: http://martinemueller.blogspot.com Email: martinemler@rocketmail.com - all right for photos belonging to me or the original photographer.
