The uncertainty of the expat life is magnified by life during a devastating global pandemic. But how often to you get to hear from the same person, just before and then during a major catastrophe that touches virtually every person in the world?

Today we're joined by Stephanie Fuccio, Italian-American long-term expat (mostly in Asia), and host and creator of the Geopats podcast network. Through the magic of radio we hear from Stephanie, first back in January, days before she moved from Shanghai to Berlin, then a month later after she had settled in the German capital, then fast-forward six months to post-lockdown Berlin. It's a very personal journey that turned out much different than expected.

Find Stephanie on Twitter, Instagram, or on her website.
