From Tennessee to Germany: I Must Be Off!
Hey, BlogExpat! Thanks for asking me to do this interview. I’m Christopher Allen, the guy behind the mask on the expat, gluten-free, photo-literary, so-you’ll-know-where-my-hands-have-been travelogue I Must Be Off! I'm from Tennessee but moved to Germany with my dog, Bodie, in 1995.
1. Why did you move abroad?
In German “für die grosse Liebe”. I guess love takes a lot of people on wild goose chases around the world. The “big” love I found in 1995 lasted about six months, but I’ve been in my present relationship for almost 14 years now. And of course I love Munich and London, the two cities where I split my time. But is this why I moved abroad? I think the deeper reason I moved was that I wanted an adventure. Seventeen years later, I’m still not done with it.
