Including my year abroad in Hannover, I've now been living in Germany for over three years. Woah. Over these years, I've become accustomed to doing things that are accepted and expected in Germany. I've also got used to not doing things that are not accepted and certainly not expected (and I'm talking things that may… Continue reading What to do (and not to do) in Germany
(Just to note, as per: This article is not meant to cause any offence - it's purely all meant as a joke, of course!) Ah, Germans. Aren't they great? With their Hausschuhe and their Brötchen... I wrote a nice little post about them a few weeks ago which you can read here. But, what happens when… Continue reading A German’s first time in Britain
This month is going to seem more like a big holiday photo collection - Tim and I went to Great Britain (and it was Tim's first time there!). I'll write a more detailed post about the trip, so for now you get an overview through a random selection of photos. The first half of the… Continue reading July 2016 in pictures
What an... interesting month June has been. But, they say a picture says a thousand words. So here goes:
Those Germans, eh? Being a Brit, there are some things they do that I don't quite understand, but I still love them. I mean, I wouldn't be here if I didn't love them, of course. And, as I'm sure you're aware if you know me well, I mean in no way to cause offence with… Continue reading Typical German reactions to everyday scenarios
May has been a really good month, possibly the best of the year so far. From walking around Leipzig half drunk, half hungover after my first German wedding, to sailing in the Netherlands and having some of my college friends visit. So it's this time of the month again - May 2016 in pictures! Enjoy!
Today marks the day that I've been living in my second Heimat for exactly 22 months (I do love numbers). That is, of course, not including the 13 months I lived in Hannover before moving back to England for a year to finish my studies, but nevertheless - 22 months is quite a long time! I… Continue reading What have I had to get used to living in Germany as a Brit?
And finally we're up-to-date! April itself didn't seem too exciting judging by the photos I took, but it ended absolutely fantastically with a wedding in a little village near to Leipzig. Germany's definitely good at Spring, that's for sure!
February, according to my photos, was a little more exciting than January. The most exciting thing was most definitely Karneval, which I spent in Cologne. Despite the huge queues for the toilets (which was no fun after you'd had a few beers and broke the seal). Of course February also Pancake Day which a Brit… Continue reading February 2016 in pictures
A little on the late side, but I'm going to power through January to April now in four separate posts. After looking through my photos from January... well, let's just say, it seems like a pretty boring month. Two of my weekends were work meetings, and generally I didn't take that many photos. So here… Continue reading January 2016 in pictures
