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 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. If you want to read about my adventures in the U.K. Start Here…
We had a long distance relationship for the first year. He was in Germany and I in the states. We decided to try and make it work by asking for transfers within both of our companies so we could move closer together.
As of June of 2014, I moved to Germany with my pug Abner to start a new life and new job with my (at the time) German boyfriend, T. We got an apartment in Ueberlingen, Germany on Lake Constance for about four years.
I knew my friends and family would miss me back home in the States so I had 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.
At the time, I had a little pug named Abner. He was the love of my life and I knew he had to move with me to Germany so I documented everything I did to get him ready for the big flight HERE.
Since having moved to Germany, Abner and I have experienced a lot including getting married!
I am currently science fiction and fantasy author with two books out as well as a free short just for signing up for my newsletter!
I hope everyone can use this blog to learn from my experiences in traveling alone, moving to a foreign country for love or just adventures as a writer.
