Jenna, Kemnath, Germany

Greetings from Kemnath, in north-eastern Bavaria. We are close to the Czech border; one of the towns we like is pictured over leaf. We arrived here in 2018. Previously, my husband had worked in Yorkshire. We are a multiple-heritage couple. Racism had always been rife but it got worse after the EU referendum. My son and I are German speakers so we chose to escape here! It's a quiet town, but people are so kind. We have a train station nearby, so we travel to bigger cities a lot that way. We get so much more sunlight here, which is wonderful. We are lucky to be able to call it home. All the very best,
