Our Story

Who would have known that these two cute kids would end up like this:


After 1 1/2 ¬†months of marriage – literally – we packed up all our most important possessions, schlepped them to Michigan, and began the tedious process of moving to Hamburg, Germany, to fulfill a two year contract Ken has with the CFEL group at DESY Hamburg. With nothing more than an air mattress, two bags of clothing and a lilliputian German dictionary with us, we embarked on what we think will be our most exciting adventure yet. We hope that you enjoy reading our musings and support our American idiocracy whilst abroad. Hopefully, by the time you are all ready to visit us, the rain will have stopped, we’ll speak more German and you’ll already have a good account of our adventures. Thus begins our new life as the Beyerleins….
