I’m still here 11 years later

I am a  50+-year-old British man, born in Hereford. Worked some, ran my own business (computer stuff) and then just had enough.  I live with my partner (Italian) who I’ve been with for 6 years and two Bearded Collies, near the centre of Milan. By day, a program manager for an...

German life is the way for me!

My name’s Kate and I’m a British expat living in Germany. As much as I like a good cup of tea, I decided to leave England in April 2012 in the pursuit of an adventure and discover myself. Along the way I partied in Amsterdam, spent 6 months working in...

Like mother like daughter

My name is Rhea Boyden and I was born in Ireland in 1975 to American parents and spent much of my childhood moving back and forth between Ireland and the United States. When my parents separated, my mother left Ireland and was always a bit of a wanderer, ever in...

Going by the rules

I started working in Germany in 1980. I came originally because I studied German in London. I felt at home very quickly. However, on a personal level I do feel sometimes that Germans can be a bit uptight and super formal. They like to go by the rules more than...

Absolutely no expectations

I’m a British girl who studied Japanese and English teaching at university, then went on to be a junior high school teacher in Japan for a few years after graduation. After the tsunami happened, I thought it’s probably best if I returned back to somewhere closer to home, but I...

Say yes to everything

I’m Rachel, originally from Shropshire in England, now living in Munich in beautiful Bavaria. I studied French and German at uni, and spent some time living in Paris, and then Tübingen in the southwest of Germany. Paris was wintery, vast, sprawling and taciturn and Tübingen was the complete opposite. I...

A British national sport

I’m a 35-year-old Brit from London with qualifications in literature and psychology and a rather varied working background in music, television, neuroscience and all manner of things in between. My passions, however, lie in travel, writing and food, and with my blog, I’m able to focus on these (albeit not...

Germans don’t beat about the bush

My name is Amy and I am English. My partner’s job brought us to Germany a year ago. Cologne, in comparison to Amsterdam, might be a bit gloomy and not so pleasant on the eye, but it does not disturb me anymore. The longer I stay the better it gets!...

Difference needs to be appreciated

My name is Liz and I am English. My husband’s job brought us to Cologne in September 2013. I have a linguistic background and one of my main priorities while here is to learn the German language. Now I hear people talking but I cant understand them. It is the...

Happy to live here

My name is Clare and I am English. We are new to the city, though my husband and I visited several times before we moved here. I’m very happy here, and I feel lucky to live in Cologne. Before moving to Germany we lived in Cairo for just under two...

Very accepting

My name is Alison and I am from Great Britain. My husband’s job brought us to Cologne two years ago and I like it! I was actually pleasantly surprised what a nice, clean and cozy city Cologne is! I especially enjoy the open space and the whole city atmosphere.  It...

I have become too German

I came to Germany from Great Britain more than 40 years ago as a volunteer with the program called “Help your brother” and stayed for good. Most of the time I was a school secretary in Michaelshoven. I definitely feel integrated into the society, mainly through sport, my voluntary work and...
