Dear Everywhere Besides the US: why can I not buy a home ice maker that produces #nuggetice? For those of you here in the U.K., it's the same ice they have at #Nandos...crunchy, soaks up the drink, makes the perfect cold beverage...yeah, that stuff. Of course I can get one at home in the US. Can I get one here in London? Can I HELL!!! #expatproblems #americanslikeice

Another #sunsetstagram from #puertovallarta #mexico πŸŒ… Pro tip: Give yourself permission to put your phone away, wherever you are, especially when the news gets to be too much. Please don't ignore what is going on in the world. But we need you. So please take care of your mental and emotional health. πŸ’œπŸ’›πŸ’— #natureheals

They never get my name right
As a German with Turkish roots, having my name mispronounced was rather the rule than an exception but In Japan new variations joined the game!
At the set for shooting a commercial I was called "Giselle-San". Didn't find that too bad compared to a recent Japanese Google Translate, where my name was pronounced like I'm some kind PokΓ©mon: "Gizaaamu" . My husband couldn't stop laughing πŸ™

What was the funniest version of your name you've ever heard?

Getting settled into a new country can be exhausting--work permission, phone contracts, bank accounts, taxes, reinventing your social support system, etc. but taking an afternoon to explore your new home can be really helpful in reminding you why you embarked on such an adventure in the first place #expatlife #lifeabroad #gramthedam #canallife #lifeoverseas #travelgram #relocation #amsterdam #springhassprung #instatravel #traveltheworld #expatwoman #expatexplore #wanderlust #expatproblems

Oh California. It seems that every time I have a really nice moment in Eire, like meeting a load of rad beach bums and mermaids, it is immediately followed with this deep gut wrenching homesickness. I miss MY rad beach bums and mermaids and crusty surfers. I miss campfires and beer and never ever littering and singing songs and dancing until dawn. I wonder will that feeling ever go away? Will I ever have a lovely day and not have a lovely day homesick hangover the next morning. How long do I have to live here before it feels like home? If any of my expat friends have read this far.... Tell me how you deal/feel in the comments. ❀

Oh man, having one of those punch in the gut homesick expat moments that comes every summer. I haven't had a Californian summer since 2012. Or well, like any summer at all really since then. We do get nice weeks here in Eire from time to time, but not like, 'shoes off buns in the sun beer on the beach sunbleached hair floating down Austin creek on an innertube' nice. No one sunbathes here because you'll get rained on. Rain is great too, don't get me wrong. It makes for such a lush green island, and you almost never have to water your garden here. But...... but..... Anyway. πŸ˜ͺ
