This blog is where I share my experiences and travels as a person living and working abroad through the lens of neurodivergency.
I was diagnosed with ADHD last year, but even before then, it affected how I would travel and how I settled into a new life in Germany. I hope sharing my experiences help other neurodivergent folks navigate life and adventures abroad.
Living outside of my home country came with challenges, and I have gone through major life ups and downs since I left the US and moved to Europe in 2014. I feel finally settled into a stable life in Berlin and plan to stay here indefinitely. I love city life, but I have discovered that time away in remote areas in a campervan is the most restorative kind of holidays for me. I'm looking forward to purchasing a tiny van this year and converting it to cozy campervan for more trips around Germany and Europe.
