"In Spain, family values are different. In Germany, there is more emphasis on self-centred questions like ‘what will my future look like?’ or ‘how can I find fulfilment?’. The focus is more on the individual. There are people here who see their parents only once a year. That does happen sometimes in Spain, but it’s not as common as here. We see each other more often, talk together more and spend more time on the phone with each other. The family ties are much closer."
