We are Geoff and Alex - two Americans living abroad in Berlin, Germany. We will discuss our years of experience living in Europe as expats, give advice to those who are hoping to make a move abroad and share plenty of funny stories that will help give insights into life here in the land of beer and sausage. Along the way, we will test a new bottle of whiskey in each episode because…whiskey.
