NICKY GARDNER is a writer based in Berlin, Germany. She has a particular interest in social and cultural minorities in Europe. Nicky has authored hundreds of articles for print publications, many of them exploring aspects of everyday life in unsung parts of Europe. Her work is, she says, an exercise in literary cartography, quietly uncovering aspects of European life glossed over by the regular media. She is also co-editor of hidden europe magazine (www.hiddeneurope.co.uk).
