Images of Egypt bring forth thoughts of camels, endless sand, souqs, Pharaohs, the Pyramids, and a far off and exotic land.

They were masters quarrying, surveying and construction techniques; a system of mathematics; a practical and effective system of medicine; irrigation systems and agricultural production; the first known ships, glass technology; new forms of literature; and the earliest known peace treaty. The Egyptian legacy rivals that of the Romans. (More)

Guide pour expatriés sur Edimbourg en françaisWe have now fully manually translated our original guide in English into French.

Scotland is an ancient, mystic land of the common man, and the original intellectuals; lush green valleys and rolling hills; the intimidating dish of haggis, legendary whiskey, and fried Mars bars. As identifiable as Scottish brogue, family tartans and bagpipes appear all over the world as reminders of the great, little land so many people come from. The gregarious people have a reputation as storytellers with many legendary writers like Sir Walter Scott, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Irvine Welsh, and JK Rowling all leaving a mark upon the world. Scotland has also produced the inventors of the television, telephone and penicillin, and the cloned sheep Dolly. It is part of the United Kingdom, and yet, it's own separate jewel. (More)

   


Guide for expatriates in Berlin

Expat guide: Berlin, GermanyWe are proud to launch our new city guide for expatriates in Berlin.

People from Berlin often point out that Berlin is not Germany. Though it is the capital, the city is distinct and different from the rest ofteh country. However, there are many symbols of Germany's rich history in Berlin, from the grandiose Brandenburger Tor to the bomb-scarred side-walks. In the center of the city, an island of world-class museums showcases the history of Berlin and artifacts from around the world.

The city is far from being all about history. Insane night-life, the ever-changing restaurant scene, the omnipresent cranes, and a new neighborhood usurping the crown of "the coolest" every decade or so proves the city is alive. Even the people of Berlin are constantly changing. It has a reputation as a place filled with people from elsewhere. Someone who has lived in Berlin for ten years will see themselves as a "true Berliner" compared to the person who has been there for only five. (More)
