Say What Now?

How hard can it be to turn up the heat or find a mailbox after you move abroad? For Mareike Korn, very! These are not the only cultural differences she faces after relocating from Germany to Boston. To get herself organized, Mareike self-reflects in her bullet journal's "Weekly Recaps".


Normally, Mareike Korn would find a lengthy visit to a foreign land thrilling. Making the trip when she’s twenty-six weeks pregnant is another matter. But when her husband’s job is temporarily relocated to the USA, keeping her family together in the late stages of her pregnancy becomes more important than being a stranger in a new place. 

To keep herself sane through the ups and downs of her adventure, Mareike chronicles her experience in her bullet journal. The panic of impending parenthood. Awkward faux pas in a new culture. Getting lost on practically every outing. Whether good, bad, or hilarious, Mareike jots it down for posterity. 

When the experience ends, will looking back allow her to see the beauty of the customs and traditions she uncovered in the mundane of daily life? Or will nostalgia for all she’s been missing prove there truly is no place like home?
