Madrid | Australia | Munich | San Francisco + Silicon Valley
A European In San Francisco was born in 2013 when Elena moved to the San Francisco Bay Area following the relocation of her German husband to the heart of Silicon Valley: Mountain View.
One of the first things she did was to buy Pepa (her car) and soon right after she started blogging about her adventures living and working in Silicon Valley.
Experienced Expat: Elena became an expat for the first time after graduating, when she relocated to Belgium to start her career in Marketing. Since that day she’s worked for the Australian Government in Europe and for the most innovative start-ups in Germany and Silicon Valley.
There are many blogs about the San Francisco Bay Area. Most of them are in English, some are in German, Spanish… and all of them are good but what makes A European in San Francisco different? this blog is a super honest, down-to-earth tale of someone like you:
moving to/living in Silicon Valley AND with a lot of questions!
Elena has been blogging since 2011 when she was living in Germany. Her blog there: My Adventures in Munich. She was one of the very few expats blogging in English about Munich and some months (and blog posts later) the Blog became very popular amongst the expat community in Munich and was featured in InterNations as one of the very few recommended blogs. Soon after it got nominated during the Munich Web Week Isarnetz as the Best Munich Blog (and got nominated again the following year later).
My Adventures in Munich is today one of the most influential expat blogs about moving, living, studying and working in Munich. National German newspapers have featured the Blog several times in articles regarding the best blogs about Munich.
We hope that you enjoy reading A European in San Francisco, as much as I enjoy writing it!
Have a great day!
