GermanyisWunderbar is the distillation of the expertise of two well-known enthusiasts for travel in Germany, one British, and one German. The former a long-established writer, and the latter a communication consultant and freelance journalist.
Andrew Eames is a travel writer and author with a particular penchant for things German, having married a lass from Lower Saxony.
Over the years he has written about Germany for a range of UK newspapers, including the Times, the Telegraph, the Daily Express, the Evening Standard and the Independent. He was recently ranked sixth in the UK Press Gazette list of the top 50 travel writers in the UK.
His favourite thing about Germany? “The German diet: beer and bread.“
