I like everything about this country!

Hi, I am Gabriela, from Bulgaria, currently living in Milan. Actually the “currently” lasts since the far-off days of 2004. My biggest passion is to travel, so sometimes I might be out of town for a month, or two or six. Why Italy? I started learning Italian when I was...

I hope it will open many doors to me!

Hallo! I am Ahmad Budeir, 27 years old, dentist (graduated from the University in 2013) and of Palestinian – Syrian origin.

The concept of nation state needs an overhaul

There are certain realities in the world we just have to deal with. I don’t think there is any viable alternative to having pluralist diverse societies. ‘Multiculturalism’ is just a word, a word we place too much importance on. There is a heated debate in Germany on whether German society...

Less discipline and more creativity

The general rule for all aspects of German society – Ordnung muss sein – shouldn’t be taken so seriously. Sometimes less discipline and more creativity ought to be considered. Just picture the life in Germany afterwards.

They should be punished…full stop!

It’s terrible what happened in Cologne during the New Year celebrations! I am Syrian myself, I came to Germany many years ago though….long before the so-called “refugee crisis”. I’ve been telling my German and European friends and colleagues to watch out for the refugees and this welcome culture…. It is...

What do you mean, not all men sit down to pee?

I am Niklas, a 27 year old German, currently studying and living in Copenhagen. I’ve spent more than 2 years building new ventures and in my spare time I have a fable for surfing, art and chocolate. How and where did you get the idea for your book “German Men...

The Dscherman

I am from Bavaria, so Germany didn’t seem so far (laughs – ed.). No, it’s just the fact that I am from here, so I know a lot of stuff you practically can’t know as a foreigner. For example: In 1998 1. FC Kaiserslautern won the Bundesliga, after qualifying for...

France was the obvious location

Hi! I’m Molly, a Texan (without a Texan accent, except for the occasional y’all) currently living in Paris. I was originally in marketing before deciding to follow my passion for baking by enrolling in the 9 month Pastry program at the Cordon Bleu, in where else, Paris! After completing the...

Can’t we make this world a better place for everyone?

Around one hundred people (mostly Syrian, Afghan refugees and a lot of journalists) demonstrated yesterday in Cologne in front of the main train station to condemn racism, violence against women, sexism and war. Saturday’s demonstration was organised on Facebook and initially estimated 500-1000 people to turn out for the rally, however...

The perfect combination

Hello! In my old life I was a City lawyer, living the corporate dream in London.  Having studied law for five years, and undertaken on-the-job training for another two, a legal career was the obvious career choice (um, I didn’t know what else to do…). And London life was a...

Russian-French Designer: from Chanel to anaplast

Notes from France… It’s obvious that food for a true Frenchman is everything. It’s his/her God ;-). The French can spend long hours having their dinner and enjoying all sorts of wines and cheese. Perhaps, the only nation that can tell you the exact “race” of any wine ;-). It’s...

You can make it work!

I come from Moscow (no, I was not born there 😉 ), where I had a  successful career in a big international company. I got married to my great German husband 😉 and moved to Hamburg when I was 27 years old. When I came here I found myself in some sort of  a “stupor”!...

Russia is not an exception

In general, Germans are very friendly to all nationalities, Russia is not an exception. The only thing that bothers me here is a certain social isolation…perhaps it is not only peculiar to Germany, but to all EU countries. In Germany home and family are the most important things: friends, neighbours, colleagues and other acquaintances...
