What is life like as an expat in your area?
When we asked people living abroad what life is like in their areas and how people spend their time, they said...
"It is a university town, so there's always a lot of nightlife and cultural/academic events. It's population is too diverse to generalize, but it doesn't seem to have as much of a materialistic 9-5 business-minded attitude as I'd imagine would exist in a larger city," mentioned another expat when asked about moving to Heidelberg, Germany.
"Apparently Munich has the highest number of single households in Germany. Family is no. 1, then friends and socializing. The English Garden attracts leisure walks in all months and of course beer garden visits in summer or when the sun is shining (even in winter!)," commented one expat who made the move to Munich, Germany.
