Passenger without handcuffs

Forrest Gump was right, life is like a box of chocolate and you never know what you are going to get. Last December I was travelling for work from Frankfurt to Ljubljana. I passed through the security gates and was waiting patiently to board until a twenty-year-old, handsome guy accompanied by two...

Who smuggled you to Germany?

My name is Mohammed Al-Sarray and I originally come from Iraq. The best experience here was to learn the German language and to know a new culture.

Priceless experiences and reasons to stay

I’ve learned from my experience that the earlier you start taking an interest in the local culture and participating in local life, the easier the integration process is. In a way you have to let this new culture in, to be open to it. Maybe the integration process doesn’t necessarily...

Germans are pure socialists at heart

I have never had any German friends while in Germany, despite the fact that I was born and raised there. I blame it on them being too cautious towards the unknown and we, the minorities, are in a state of culture shock. But my observations have lead me to believe...
