House hunting, finding day care, and handling rough starts (Wafeeqa from Saudi Arabia)

House hunting, finding day care, and handling rough starts (Wafeeqa from Saudi Arabia)

When Wafeeqa and her family moved to Germany, they thought things would be easier: her husband had a job, and his employer was arranging accommodation for them. Plus, they both had experience with learning languages, so they thought maybe German wouldn't be too much of a challenge. But as is so often the case, things didn't go according to plan...

Wafeeqa discusses finding a place to live, finding daycare for her twins, trying not to disturb neighbors, and more.

4GEPADFO time: charity drive 2022
As we do every year, Nicole of The Expat Cast and I are raising money for a charity - but this time, instead of a competition, we're doing it together! The project we're supporting this year: krisenchat, which provides psychosocial support for young Ukranians. 


You can support the show in various ways: 

  • BUY THE GERMANY EXPERIENCE PODCAST A COFFEE – there are a lot of costs associated with running a podcast, like expenses for hosting the audio and the tools used to record the episodes. Every donation will go towards the monthly expenses of keeping The Germany Experience going.  And it will make my heart happy!
  • SPREAD THE WORD – share your favorite episode in an expats in Germany Facebook group, on Twitter, or any of the other social channels. Or if you know someone who might need this podcast in their life, tell them about it!
  • WRITE A REVIEW – write a review about The Germany Experience on my site, on Apple Podcasts, or on Spotify (or anywhere else you can think of).
