The Broke Expat with Jenny

The Broke Expat with Jenny

December 13, 2018

Season 1, Episode 24. Not all expats move abroad with the support of a company or solid financial backing. Many move with little savings, which tend to get spent quickly with moving and immigration expenses. Jenny and Nicole are two of the latter; both moved to Germany with some savings and low income expectations, but both were able to create lives they love within monetary confines.

How do they do it? How do they make it work as an expat on a budget?

They share their lists of tips, tricks, and life hacks to make life within a budget feel not so constrained. One such tip? Trash picking! Yup, you read that right. Jenny explains how she was able to find a whole wardrobe, many times over, as well as great furniture and decor - all from the free things left out on the street. Check out The Expat Cast on social media to see some example outfits for every occasion.

A Plethora of Resources for Living in Germany with James

A Plethora of Resources for Living in Germany with James

December 6, 2018

Season 1, Episode 23. When host Nicole was preparing to move to Germany, one of the websites she frequented was Live Work Germany. It seems like they've got a resource guide for every bump in the road of moving to Germany, from registering your address to navigating a foreign qualification recognition process - all up-to-date, all in English. As a librarian who loves a good resource, Nicole has long been a huge fan. So it was an honor to sit down with the man behind it all, James!

James moved to Germany from England 12 years ago for a job after studying the language in university. He didn't expect to find a new home to the extent that he did. Lucky for us all, his career evolution led him to launch a website and blog to help other expats and want-to-be expats figure out the practicalities of moving to Germany. He also chats with us about his new service, where users can send in their German correspondence and get, in English, a short run-down of what they need to do.
