carolineandmathewThanks for visiting our Germany blog: carolineandmathew.com

My wife is German, and I am an American. Our life, troubles and triumphs.

Caroline, my wife, comes originally from Kaiserstuhl, Germany. And for myself, I am a native of Middleton, Wisconsin USA. We hope that someone will be able to relate and possibly enjoy our journey stories. Please excuse my denglish throughout the texts and the reversed syntax in the english sentences, some days are definately better than others with regards to my bilingual competence.

Our Germany Blog

Our mutual path is currently guided by German-American cultural creases, language flops, why you shouldn’t marry a foreigner, VISA lines out the door, what do I need an American drivers license for, dirty socks laying on the kitchen sink, learning to enjoy Schlager music and of course our first dog that my wife secretly picked up one day from the local humanes society.

Please feel free to contact us if you need content creation solutions, German-English translations, your house sold in Wisconsin or somebody to manage your digital marketing campaigns.

And yes, one of our favorite foods is cheese – doesn’t matter how its made.

  1. Hi Caroline and Mathew,

    I am a television producer working on the US travel show ‘House Hunters International’ and I am getting in touch because we are looking for English speaking expats who have recently moved to Germany to feature on our show. I wonder if you might like to share your story?

    House Hunters International is a half-hour TV show currently airing on the Home and Garden Television Network (HGTV) in America. The series is designed to de-mystify the international home-buying / renting process, by going behind the scenes of a house hunt where expats and their real estate agents tour 3 homes. At its core, House Hunters International is a travel show concentrating on the idiosyncrasies of the locales and what makes them special and different.
    Here is a link to show you what our show is all about!


    We would love to film in Germany again so please get in touch if you or any of your contacts might be interested in finding out more!

    Best wishes,


    Michelle James
    1-3 St Peter’s Street, London N1 8JD – +44 20 7704 3300
