My name is Tessa and I’m an American living in Görlitz, Germany.
I grew up in California and Arizona, where I met my German husband while he was studying abroad at my university. He hinted that I should start taking German classes and the next thing I knew I was moving to Dresden with him.
We made a lot of mistakes during those two years and ultimately returned to the US because I had trouble adapting to life in Germany. But this time around I feel that we’ve learned from these mistakes and I’m a lot better equipped. I’ve become more fluent in German and even began teaching it at my university back home.
Since December 2016 I’ve been settling in as well as exploring & falling in love with my new home. Before I’m through, I’ll have you planning your own trip to Görlitz!
