Mareen alstede Moved to Idaho from California


who is mareen alstede?

Mareen Alstede is originally from Germany. She was born and raised there but “escaped in 2008 to find more freedom and sunshine” with her spouse. They ended up in Hawaii, which definitely checked the sunshine box, but wasn’t long until the island fever started kicking in. 

Fortunately, right when their son was born, a job opportunity  pulled them to Southern California, where Mareen and her family lived for seven years. They worked hard to provide for their two children. Given the dynamic of Southern California, they found that they were spending more time traveling to work than they were with their kids, though. This resulted in them making a move once more — this time to Idaho.

why did mareen alstede move to idaho?

As Mareen would put it:

“We finally found home!”

Here, she enjoys meeting people, getting to know them, and calling them friends. Her family spends far less time in the car and much more in the outdoors. They especially enjoy riding dirt bikes, and Idaho is the perfect place to do it!

You can catch more of Mareen on the Treasure Valley Dave YouTube channel.
