Who are we?

40% German was created over five years ago as blog recounting the somewhat odd adventures of a former UK resident living in Germany. 

Today, the blog has grown into a larger attempt to look at many aspects of German life and culture, through the lens of English speakers who have chosen to create lives in Germany.

The name 40% German represents the how expats begin to take on aspects of their adopted countries cultures and social norms, becoming hybrids of both their original and adopted homes.

Our hope is that readers from all backgrounds, whether English speaker, native German, travellers and holidaymakers or those curious about Germany will find something of use within our website.
