Intercultural Relationships with Katie

November 14, 2019

Season 3, Episode 14. "You're always going to have one set of parents or family who is sad because they're missing their son or daughter."

Katie, an American, is married to an Austrian. Their relationship has been colored by what language they communicate in and where they live - in the US, in Austria, and now as digital nomads. Although sometimes it is as magical as taking twirling in the Austrian Alps, singing songs from The Sound of Music, there are numerous challenges that come up when you are in an intercultural relationship.

Katie comes on the podcast to talk about all the messy challenges that are inevitable for relationships like hers. But it isn't all heavy! We also giggle about how wearing house shoes, as is common in Austria, really throws a wrench in your outfit choices, and Katie tells us the wild story of how her and her husband met, which is honestly the kind of story that makes me want to believe in fate.
