Living in a new country is not easy. It might be exciting and scary at the same time. There are a lot of cultural differences  and hurdles you might face so of course, it is never wrong to try and prepare for your journey. With the help of the internet it is very easy to communicate with other people all over the world and ask about their experiences or find articles and clips that may answer the questions you have in mind. Vlogging is one of the most natural and creative tool for sharing experiences with others. That is why we are looking for (5) Creative Filipinos who can show us around their new city in Germany.
