Founder’s Diary: Birthday Celebrations in London

Last month, on September 11, 2014, InterNations turned exactly seven years old to a day. What better place to celebrate this special occasion than our largest InterNations Community worldwide? So I got myself on a plane to London in order to meet up with our three local InterNations Ambassadors at that night’s event location, the […]

Survey Spotlight: See the World Through Expat Eyes

InterNations has grown tremendously in these past seven years, from a small start-up to the biggest expat network in the world. With around 1.4 million members, we decided that it was time to find out what moves expats around the world: Why do they relocate? What makes them happy? And what is life abroad like […]

Founder’s Diary: Thessaloniki

After my last two visits to InterNations Communities took me to Northern Europe, this time I’m heading in the opposite direction – on a two-hour flight to Thessaloniki, Greece’s second largest city and the most important in the country’s north. In stark contrast to Munich’s rather rainy summer, 30°C and Mediterranean sunshine await me. My […]

The Lucky Number: Happy 7th Birthday, InterNations!

Seven is a lucky number, and this is a lucky occasion for us: It’s the seventh birthday of InterNations. Seven years ago, in 2007, our website went online, launching what is today the world’s largest expatriate network. Last year’s anniversary neatly coincided with us celebrating our 100,000th Facebook fan and member #1 million of our […]

Founder’s Diary: Gothenburg

Gothenburg is one of our up-and-coming InterNations Communities in Sweden, with as many as 2500 members.

It has […]

Founder’s Diary: Reykjavik

It’s cool, up north: Malte Zeeck, founder and co-CEO of InterNations, lately paid a visit to one of our northernmost Local Communities in the Icelandic capital. “I wanted to go to the end of the world, but not quite so far away.” That’s what a German InterNations member from Cologne told me at our recent […]

Playing for a Change: The InterNations World Games 2014

By now, the FIFA World Cup counts as old news, and even the euphoria in the wake of the German victory has died down. However, at the InterNations office in Munich, we now have another soccer-related reason to celebrate: The first InterNations World Games series has just finished! What are the InterNations World Games? – […]

Founder’s Diary: InterNations Goes Madrid

When I described saying good-bye to Catharina, our long-term Local Ambassador in Madrid, a few months ago, I promised to be back with exciting news concerning our InterNations Community in the Spanish capital. This time, my visit to Madrid was again a very special one. In March, after Catharina stepped down as InterNations Ambassador to […]
