Genau:  The German word for “exactly” or “precisely”, used very often in conversation.  Also, our last name.

Ausländer:  The German word for foreigner.

Genauslanders:  Us!

We are an American couple in our late 20s who recently finished graduate school in Chicago and moved to Germany for a year or two of European adventures.   We started the blog to keep our family and friends informed about what we’ve been up to, and also use it to share our run-ins with the German language, culture, and people: the good, the bad and the (hopefully, occassionally) funny.

My…oh my!
