Hi, do we really need another blog online? Yes! I, Ben, need it to document my upcoming new life in some form. I not only do this for myself but also for family and friends. The story is as follows: In about two weeks I´m going to transfer my life from Germany to the US. This means quitting my current job, leaving all people behind that I got to know in my life and building up social and professional environment abroad. For me this is easier than you would normally expect for people emigrating to a foreign country. My wife Sarah is American so it was relatively easy for me to get hold of my green card allowing me to live and work in any American state. Furthermore, everything is set up when I’ll arrive in Washington DC because Sarah already found a job and an apartment. Let´s call it emigration light.

Why do I call the blog “global gateway”? On the one hand, because DC is known to be one of the worlds biggest international airport hubs many people from other countries have to pass before they can go to their final destination. On the other hand, because this blog is supposed to be my own private window to the world to let people know what´s going on here in DC or wherever I will end up.

For all you guys wanting to know what´s happening over there this is the place to check out. I´m trying to keep all the posts in English to improve language skills but you´ll never know.
