I am an expat mom of two, navigating the ups and downs of all that Europe has to offer
Germany is my new home and Girl in Geilenkirchen is an account of my experiences settling into a new country. It's everything you would expect, including humorous anecdotes about language barriers, interesting photos from European travels, and the travails of learning to navigate daily life in unfamiliar territories.
I am a 1 and-a-quarter Mom from the US living in Germany. I say "Quarter" Mom because I am not only the mom to a 15-month-old son, but also a Stepmother to an 8 year-old daughter. (The "Quarter" part will be explained at a later time.) My husband is German, which makes us in a cross-cultural relationship, and my stepdaughter is also German. I moved here with ZERO German language skills and did I mention that my stepdaughter only started learning English when I first moved here? But we'll get to language barriers also later. I moved to Germany 2 years ago, and the plan is to stay and raise the children here. So no turning back for this Expat.

"Beth Cherry is not dead yet" is just an offbeat semi-daily journal of a woman who has found herself in Germany.
Of antipodean origin, currently living in Germany with the "Ger-Man", little "Caspi-Man" and four-legged "Olli". Dream is to have a permanent place in both hemispheres and the means to travel betweeen. Am lucky to have family & friends in far-flung corners of the globe but, where ever I am, I'm missing someone terribly. Prone to procrastination and to wearing pajamas and animal ears - I often find myself outside my comfort zone...life seems to be a vertical learning curve.
