Episode Two: Chelsea Pyne, American Expat Au Pair in Germany

I belong to several wonderful Facebook groups for expats and repats, including Grumpy Expat, started by my friend Alison; Grumpy Repat, also started by Alison (mainly at my request;) and Two Fat Expats. It was on one of these pages that I saw some posts by Chelsea that really resonated with me and so I reached out to her via Facebook Messenger and we found we had a lot in common.

I was happy when Chelsea agreed to be on the show because her expat-repat experience was so different from mine. Chelsea had always wanted to live abroad and the first time she left the US was to move to Germany as an Au Pair at the age of 22. She went abroad young and single and found love and enrolled in German school in order to stay longer. Then, due to visa issues, she had to leave quite suddenly and before she was ready. Give it a listen to hear how Chelsea dealt with the abrupt change, regret and muddled her way through repatriation. And don't forget to subscribe and give us a positive review on iTunes.
