Meet the Girl Behind the Blog!

Hey there! I’m Lorelei Marie – a fearless, California girl from San Diego living my dreams in Germany! Since I was 14, I have had a ravenous desire to travel the world! I have a serious addiction to some of Europe’s most Disney-esque fairy tale, half-timbered towns and castles, channeling my inner princess. When I’m not wearing my imaginary crown, I’m down to earth, ready to put on my dirndl and keep up with the Bavarians! Currently, I’m a co-host of the wonderful travel community link up #TheWeeklyPostcard!

WHO is California Globetrotter?

California Globetrotter is a blog that was started by an every day California girl who randomly decided to sell EVERYTHING and move to Germany alone, to teach English as a foreign language to pay for her unquenchable desire to travel the world. Along the way, she shared her experiences with her friends and family to encourage them to get out there and TRAVEL! Little did she know that her little blog would turn into a full-blown travel blog!

What you’ll find on California Globetrotter

California Globetrotter is an expat travel blog which focuses on sporadic bursts of travel throughout Germany and Europe with her husband to some of the most hidden, charming fairy tale half-timbered towns. This blog features personal stories of her experiences living abroad, travel stories and tips, amazing photography and attire for a lady as well as some light humor. Caliglobetrotter’s goal is to encourage others to live their dreams and travel to some of the lesser known corners of the world! More about California Globetrotter’s unique story here!
