Now that the year 2010 is coming to an end and the festive season is drawing near for many of us, we’d like to take this opportunity and send all of you seasonal greetings from Munich’s currently less than idyllic winter: The InterNations Team wishes you a Merry Christmas, if you celebrate it, Happy Holidays, a relaxing vacation, and all the best for 2011! May the New Year will bring you good health, happiness, peace, and contentment.
The last year has been very exciting for us. We were very happy about the steady growth of the InterNations Community worldwide. Providing a virtual home for now 230,000 expats and global minds all around the world has required lots of joint effort from our office team; but it has also brought us the satisfaction of getting a great deal of positive feedback. Since “connecting global minds” is our mission statement, so to speak, we were especially delighted to see how many members attend our regular events and how much they appreciate the networking opportunities, from Argentina to Zimbabwe. We now also have the resources to support a vibrant local life in smaller InterNations Communities, such as Kathmandu or Accra.
We are having plenty of plans in store to improve our community and your international experience even further in 2011. See you all safe and sound in the New Year!
