All what we always want to share in this blog is cultures and everything related. Let’s get to know who we are:
Girindra Wiratni Puspa:
Hi, Indra is writing here. I am an Indonesian and have been living in Germany since 10th January 2014. I’d started living in Germany by working as an au pair in Austrian family who lives in Munich. It’s been an amazing year for me.
A year after, I moved to another beautiful city (in northern Germany), Hamburg. Not that I don’t like Bayern, it was just because I wanted to improve my German language ability (in Bayern, I hardly understood what German people talk to each other). Yes, because of their Bavarian Dialect. ? In Hamburg, I had worked as voluntary Service (in German’s term would be Freiwilligendienst Soziales Jahr or FSJ) for 18 months. It has ended in August 2014, exactly 2 months before I have started my Master Study.
By the time I am writing this text, I am a post graduate student of Austronesistik study in University of Hamburg. (let me check what date it is now : 14 March 2017) ?
All that I want to share here is my experience living in such country which has totally different cultures, people’s perspectives, habits, norms, and many more things. Moreover, I am also sharing ways, information, and tips considering to the Indonesian people who currently are living in Germany, or they who want to go to Germany. Accordingly, I am writing in Indonesian language (Bahasa Indonesia).
There are some articles which were written in German for Germans who are interested in Indonesian cultures. There will be more and more (I hope I will have more mood and time for it).
This blog welcomes everyone to join as a guest writer. People who want to share their interest and cultures. Most welcome for Indonesian who also live in different country and culture.
Looking forward to meet you in a real life 🙂

Tobias Nico Denker:
Tobias Denker (Denker means literally: Thinker) so you can call him Tobi a Thinker man ?. He is a 100% German, but more proud to be an Italian or Indonesian ?. He is an amazing guy who did a bike tour in more than 10.000 km through European countries. If you are interested in knowing about his journey, please visit his very own blog (written in German: Tobi On Tour). Now, he is settled and has a job in Hamburg. He is not an active writer in this blog, his job is helping the writer to comment and correct the articles she has written in German.
