If you wish to know more about us, then here it is. We are expats from Finland and Britain and we’ve lived in several places including England, Finland, France, Spain and Germany.
We have experienced just about everything possible when relocating to a foreign country. Having stupidly pointed at an item in a store, we know how it feels to live in a foreign city. We have lived at times in places where locals have been unable or unwilling to speak our language.
Since learning stuff is such fun, we decided to create emotional country guides for those who wish to know more about the place and its people Germany’s Great tells a story about the Germans and Germany with many insights. We have started there because we lived there for so long and stumbled across such curious stuff. Projects on this site include the Smile Days, which is good for everyone, and the Du Project, which is good for the German society.
Having been fined by the authorities for not informing of a move, we have learned the importance of knowledge. That’s why we started doing what we are doing with Amazing Capitals. Put simply, we are experts who wish to support others who find themselves in similar situations with regional and city expat guides. Commenced in Düsseldorf, expanded and continuing to grow.
And whilst we were on the move a wonderful idea was born. The young are our future. Some youngsters lose out on the best of life so we are forming Village Green, our non-profit creative centre for less fortunate children in the European Union. We have a long way to go and it will be marvellous.
Thanks for joining us, Garry
