When you move to Germany, like with other countries, you might find yourself needing to re-invent yourself due to the language and the culture. For example: if you were funny and outgoing in your home country, you might suddenly feel like you're introverted and "boring" in social situations in Germany. And how do you deal with feeling that you can't show Germans the real "you"?
I discuss this issue with the two hosts of Americans In Germany Drinking Whiskey, Geoff and Alex. We also hear about how they came to be in Germany, and just how much whiskey they actually drink every week.

A filmmaker and voice over artist that grew up in California, USA. After graduating high school he went on several backpacking tours through Europe and eventually decided to move to Vienna, Austria to learn the German language for a few months. This eventually put him on the path towards Berlin and those few months turned into many, many years.
A kindergarten teacher that grew up in the little state of Rhode Island, USA. A few months after graduating college, Alex had a conversation with a friend living in Berlin. After a bit of convincing, he booked a one way ticket to Berlin, having never been to Europe in his whole life. Once there, he found a job, took some German classes and decided to stay for the long term.
