Sneaky photographer – Bamberg in Germany

Today I would love to share with you a short photo story about a UNESCO city Bamberg in Southern Germany, about 1 hour from Nurnberg and 2 hours from Munich by train. This is an amazing opportunity to spend a day (and a night) enjoying the fleur of the old Germany.

The buildings in the old town were built between 11th and 19th century, therefore the city looks like a cartoon village from Hansel and Gretel. Bamberg was far away from any military point, therefore you will see many original facades. It is not overpopulated by tourists, and after 22 you will find almost no foreigners on the streets. There are an old town, a castle and a monastery open to you in Bamberg.

If you look for a magical experience in an old German city – this is a place to go!

Thought for the day

Read in the German subway today: “If you did not make it to an It-Girl (comment: a young female media celebtrity and a socialite), come to us and become an IT-girl!”

Coming soon in my blog: Hannover trade fair, the place where technology meets IT. I am in motion, jumping from a stand to a stand looking for new technological partners. I’ll keep you posted 😉

Your “abroad” is guaranteed: work&study agencies vs. your own way

Looking for more security, political stability, financial opportunities, better healthcare systems, Russians are ready to invest an impressive amount of money in an opportunity to move to another country. As Russians get less and less satisfied with the life in the country, the amount of agencies promising an almost guaranteed place in summer schools, universities, companies etc. grows as well. This article will be concentrated on pros and contras of working with “work&study aboard” agencies. What can you expect from them? When are their services pointless? What should you look at by yourself when preparing a big change in your life? Let’s talk about it openly.

Thought for the day

The Power of Positivity has presented a unique video on how a grandmother helped her blind granddaughter to get a university degree, when no books are available for blind people. I hope, they don’t mind that I publish their video on my page 😉

Disabled people have much better chances to get a degree and a job in Europe. Moreover, in countries like Germany there will be financial advantages of hiring a disabled person.

In Russia, we think that we have less disabled people, because our women get pregnant earlier and bear healthier children. Nope, my dear, that’s because they have nowhere to go and no sources to go out…


Power of Positivity опубликовала уникальное видео о слепой русской девочке, которой бабушка помогла получить университетское образование, не имея доступа к книгам для слепых.

Инвалиды в Европе обладают шансом на достойное будущее, образование и карьеру. Более того, к примеру, в Германии законодательство построено так, что компании, нанимающие на работу инвалидов, выигрывают на налогах.

В России мы привыкли считать, что у нас меньше инвалидов на улицах, потому что наши женщины рожают раньше и вынашивают более здоровых детей. Нет, мои дорогие, это потому, что им просто некуда идти, да и возможности выйти у них тоже нет..

One-language career: where can you build an international career in English only?

For this article, I will concentrate my attention on such countries as China, Germany, Denmark, Spain and, yes, Russia. I work with many expats from different countries from  all levels and many industries, therefore I understand the consequences of coming to another country without knowing the local language. Can one come to a country with a 0 to A2 level of the local language and feel comfortable at work? In the everyday life? Let us have a look at it.

Thought for the day

Just today I understood that more than 10 years later I came back to develop the region, which granted me my knowledge of the German language during a school exchange program when I was 15…I did not even think about moving to another country at that point..

We all pay the price – sometimes in a very unexpected way. I can only hope that I will be a good return on investment=))


До меня только сегодня дошло, что, спустя более 10 лет, я вернулась развивать регион Германии, в котором изучала немецкий язык по программе школьного обмена, когда мне было 15…Я тогда даже и не помышляла о переезде в другую страну..

За всё приходится платить – порой крайне неожиданным способом. Надеюсь, я сумею окупить вложенные в меня усилия=))
