Welcome to Live, Laugh, Leipzig!

This is a story about a goofy girl, her witty husband, and their adventures as expats and travelers! Originally from the United States, these two are now living in Germany’s former east in the hip, musical city of Leipzig. In their spare time, they travel around Europe taking in the sights, the culture, and the food and share the best of what each city has to offer with YOU!
