What does ‘Heimat’ mean? What is ‘Fremdsein’ and how does the experience of being foreign change you? These were the key questions of the interdisciplinary project ‘Fremdsein 4.0’ which took place at Karlsruhe University of Applied Sciences in 2018.  
The project enabled a personal perspective of the reciprocal perception of ‘Fremdsein’. The inputs of the workshops helped to raise awareness of dealing with “foreignness”, especially at a time with increased migration from south to north. The workshops around the topics ‘Heimat’ and ‘Fremdsein’ had been locally anchored and helped to provide impulses for individual and collective self-reflection in the everyday dealing of the participants.

The week that I arrived in Germany the temperature was -10°C which was about 20° colder than what winter would be like in my home country. I was definitely not prepared to brave the cold! One positive was that I had always dreamt of seeing snow and having a snowball fight! When my friends and I heard that it would be snowing in the black forest we we're on the first tram out into the cold. I soon learnt that I don't know how to make snowballs and I need much more practice , I'll definitely have to come back next winter ;)

I actually felt the feeling of "Fremdsein" in my hometown after I stayed for 6 month in Delhi, India to do an internship. Allthough the streets are loud, dirty and busy that you always have to struggle around I missed these sounds and the smell when I got home. I remember the first day walking down the street in my village in Southern Germany. I was like caught in a bubble, in a world where I still was present but couldn't escape...yet. Sure it got better after a few days but I will always remember that particular feeling of not fitting in your hometown anymore.

...is often mentioned as something negative of german people. For me the german coldness is something positive. I connect it to snow, mountains and winter sports. The feeling of snowboarding in the mountains and the sound of snow under your snowboard is great. Living near the Black Forest is something special. You have so much possibilities of leisure activities for every season.

Some people might find the "matatus" noisy and chaotic, too but most Nairobians find them cool and entertaining when commuting within and outside the city.
In Germany the public transport are quite and organized.
