A. Stephenson lives with her husband, two kids, and two dogs in Alabama. But she’s about to put her worldly goods on a slow boat to Germany. Follow her if you want to hear about all of the firsts, foibles, frustrations, and follies of an expat’s life abroad. There will be travels and travesties both, that’s a promise.
A little background: Ann teaches English part time at Auburn University, Montgomery. Her past experiences and adventures include teaching jobs at UMUC, Methodist University, and Valdosta State University, and years of expat life on the Turkish Mediterranean (3 years) and in Northern England (4 years). Her foibles and follies. . .are too lengthy to list here.
UPDATE: We’re now on the ground in Germany!!

My name is Joyce, I am a marketing executive at expatfinder.com which is a leading expat information and services website.
I saw on your blog that you are and expat. I wish to interview you to further share some of your tips. The questions are mainly about the housing, the daily life etc.
It just takes 5 minutes (or more depending if you have lots to say 🙂
Of course, if you accept we can add a link to your blog or some of your website.
If you are interested to participate at this project, please send me an email at email@example.com.
Auburn? You must be joking. 🙂 (have we already been in touch? In a previous post?) I went to Grad school at Tuscaloosa! (Roll Tide!) So technically we should be arch-ennemies. Or not?
Ye be good naw ye hear?
Small world. I will forgive you the “Roll Tide,” as I enjoy your blog too much to be rivals! Best regards,
Haha! I know it was a bit of a provocation and thank you for not holding it against me. Would “war eagle!” be appropriate? 😉
Kind regards back my dear.
Thanks so much for following my blog 🙂 I’ve followed yours too – always happy to hear tales from the life of a fellow expat! – and looking forward to reading more.
All the best,
Hi, Ann. I came across your blog while searching for blogs written by expats. I’m helping to market a new memoir by an expat living in Helsinki, and I think it might be up your alley! The author is a classically trained musician who moved to Europe in her 40s on a whim, and ended up meeting the man she would come to marry. I’d love to send you an digital advanced reader copy of the book. We also have a limited number of print copies available for reviewers willing to blog or post about the book on social media. You can learn more about the book and see the cover here: https://lindajamsen.com. If you like what you see and you’d like a copy, I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you! – Nancy
Hello, Linda. I’m intrigued. I’ll take a look at Linda’s site. Thanks.
