About La Mari

I’m a traveler…

And these are my tales…

Thorsten and I celebrating a German World Cup 2014 win!!

I first created this blog as a way to communicate to friends and family back home about my travels to the United Kingdom back in 2011.  As of June of 2014, I moved to Germany to start a new life and new job with my German boyfriend.

As of April 2015, T and I got engaged and are not getting ready to navigate the next stage of our lives!

The name “La Mari” comes from my Peruvian side of the family.  Whenever people would talk about me, they would always refer to me as La Mari.

I know my friends and family will miss me here in the states so I decided to revive this blog as a way to allow them to follow me on my journey of preparing for the move as well as the move itself.

This is a necklace that I had made courtesy of this lovely woman from Chicago.  I wanted to wear something that ecompasses my two passions: traveling and writing.  It also serves as the perfect logo for this site. 😀  It has since evolved to add the charms to an Edelweiss necklace I bought recently at Muswiese.

Everyone is welcome.  I hope everyone can use this blog to learn from my experiences in traveling alone or moving to a foreign country for love.

  1. Hi La Mari!

    I am a television producer working on the US travel show ‘House Hunters International’. 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. Hi Michelle!
      Thank you so much for the email! Unfortunately T and I are not in the market for a new apartment or house but keep in touch and maybe down the line we may be interested.

      Thanks again!
      La Mari

  2. Hi,
