May Day, May Day…
2 May 2009, 5:01 am

watch out for little mischievous German kids!   Let me give you a little background before I go into my story. In Germany, this a national holiday and everything is closed.  The Germans  motto is Tans in den Mai (Dance into May) and in many towns people gather to the center of the town to dance, [...]

is all I feel like I do!  It is interesting to compare running errands in the states to being over here.  It really takes forever and not to mention puts many miles on the car!  First being if you want to mail something or recieve mail.  You cannot just go to your mailbox outside your [...]

17 May 2009, 1:38 pm

back from a long & exhausting work trip?? It feels great to be back home in Germany, which sounds a little weird saying for me still, but nonetheless it’s great to sleep in my own bed. Blogs will still be somewhat sparatic for the next month or so due to school kicking my arse. Hopefully [...]

30 May 2009, 3:52 am

when i said that the posts would be sparadic for the next few weeks. It’s not because I’m out partying every night and taking baths in all of the Dunkle and Kristall beer i can find either. I’ve been stuck inside on a computer doing homework for the last few weeks and have a few [...]

Study your schooling little heinrich…..
8 June 2009, 3:48 pm

and you may be allowed to go to school past the 10th grade.  10th grade you ask, what is he talking about….well this how things work in Germany.

The school system in Germany isn’t quite the same as it is in the states and by not quite the same I mean completely different. Kids in Germany [...]

It’s happy Corpus Christi day…..
11 June 2009, 2:50 pm

at least in Germany it is. What the heck is Corpus Christi day? Do the Germans have a secret love for cities in Texas? No, not at all actually. This is just one of the many public (or federal) holidays the Germans celebrate. In fact this is one of the 16 holidays that very few [...]

Comparing “home” to….
25 June 2009, 5:04 pm

“home” with my recent trip back to the USA and it was interesting the things I noticed since this was the first time I have been home since I left. In some respect not much has changed, afterall it’s only been 9 months since I left. On the other hand though, I noticed many little [...

2 July 2009, 3:25 pm

at least that’s how I feel right now. It’s been at least high 70’s to mid 80’s for the past 3 or 4 days and you’re probably thinking that’s nice weather. Well it’s not nice when you don’t have any air conditioning in your house or even your office. The...

12 July 2009, 4:28 am

it has not been over 65 degrees for the past week or so – with about 4 of those days raining most of the time. I have complained about the hot weather before, but know it’s time to complain about the cold weather. I actually would choose cooler weather over hotter weather (especially wit...

The slogan for Germany……
22 July 2009, 1:29 pm

has been created by 2 Americans who recently visited Munich. It sounds improbable, I know, but it’s true and I am living through it to confirm this. The official slogan of Germany should be “Anything Goes” (kinda like THIS). Why you ask? There are so many reasons that I would proba...

12 August 2009, 2:41 pm

never even close to being right at most of the stores here in Germany. I have learned that the term “Customer Service” is more of an afterthought and not the standard here. This is totally different then back in the states where you are greeted with a smile by virtually every employee, a...

Back from the dead…..
15 September 2009, 4:35 pm

once again. I can’t believe that it has been over a month since my last post and I apologize for this. I haven’t been sitting around enjoying the beer gardens (or biergartens) the whole time though — just most of the time.       I have just moved to a new place in Deutschland a...

26 September 2009, 11:32 am

comes up to the door and says “Yea, I got a delivery….for a Joe Smith”. Guy at the house says “uh he’s my neighbor”.  Delivery guys says “Yea, whatever. sign here.” Apparently this how it works for the Germans when it comes to delivering a package. Le...

round here, are ya? Last week I made my yearly trip to Oktoberfest, I say yearly because it has been 2 years in a row now (and it sounds cool to say I make a yearly trip to Oktoberfest). For the most part it was the same wonderful time as it was last year- beer, [...]
