45. Alex – a Texan in Munich

45. Driving, Dating & Dirndls: A Texan in Bavaria – with Alex Katte Transcontinental Overload

Today's guest has made me miss not only one, but two places! Alex Katte, originally from Houston, TX, lives near Munich with her German husband and new baby son. We discuss the weird similarities between Bavarian and Texan cultures, the joys of driving without a speed limit, and the special charm of traditional clothing.Of course we also delve into the cultural differences, and how tricky it might be to incorporate two cultures within one family, the difficulties of the German language and what it's like to get married during the pandemic.If you're thinking about studying in Germany, the DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service) is a great resource! I hope you enjoy today's episode as much as I did! You can find Alex on Instagram, or follow her soon-to-be-revived blog. To read up on why I haven't been around, check my blog, and find me on Instagram, Facebook, or right here on my website.
