First of all, here is a small announcement: As I discovered that my readers often use mobile phones to read my articles, I will shorten the stories and divide them into small parts, so it would be more comfortable for you to read when you are on your way to work, university or language courses 😉 If you dislike the new format, just write your opinion in the comments!
There are many countries, which I imagined to be different before I came there, and India was one of them. This week I will post 5 thoughts on the Indian work culture I experienced this fall, one thought per day, so do not miss them))
Ever wondered, why man Europeans have been in so many countries in EU, but still living in hostels? Because they had an InterRail pass and it was affordable!! This is a kind of abo, which allows you to travel with no limits from country to country, from city to city! 5 days during 15 days for EUR only 269, for instance, any city and any EU country. Check it out here! No adverts, just an idea for your next vacation 😉
Cities are what people create – cities are what people inside are. Some cities, just like we all, take, some give, some offer you people in exchange for a small fee of experience. While Barcelona always GIVES, Frankfurt immediately takes away. Most people come here for work, but never make their home here – therefore, you meet this very special “office city” without any expectations.
I paid for this visit with my time – a month, which disappeared right before my eyes. It’s time to get back to work!
Coming soon, starting tomorrow:
- Why confident talented Russians get fired in Europe
- 10 reasons why your education and work experience have no value abroad – and what to do with it
- Shopping time: which things people from CIS-countries do not value at home?
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!

Executive lounge-the only positive part of having a BF in the consulting business. At least, one gets hotel benefits on vacations for living 5 days a week away from home..
In Russia, I was a “strong 5 from 10” type. Small, curvy, well educated, with many interests in various areas, I was not in the centre of attention. Surprisingly, this has changed once I moved abroad – but not necessarily for the best. This article will be a summary of stories from some countries, which shows, how men around the world are fixed on the idea of “Russian brides”, and how to deal with that.
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.
