"It's always been my goal to live in America. Our family will realize this dream. We have already bought a house in Los Angeles. The children don't even want to return when we're there on vacation. I like the whole lifestyle in America. The people are laid-back, and the sun always seems to shine. But it's not a decision against Germany, but one for the USA."
