how to survive in Germany, Deutschland without cultural barriers, best and worst of Germany
I live in Germany since 2009. I never thought life will take me here but it did. Contrary to the common opinion, I did not come here as to look for a better life. As many would think after they find out I come from Eastern Europe. No, my husband was head hunted to Germany by an English headhunting company and we ended up here.
Together with our kids we live in NRW (Nord Rhein Westfalen).
This country is everything else but the stereotypes I had when coming here. It keeps me still wondering. Everyday something happens to me that gives an insight to a real German life. And I will share with you. And you see if it has any value.
In order to be authentic, I write my own truth. I do not copy and paste. Unless I am republishing another blogger´s post but then its clearly stated. Therefore my views might not be always politically correct. I might say something people do not talk about here. Maybe its a topic it is ok to talk in the culture I come from. Maybe its the only place I could talk about it?
I have great respect for country I walk on, live in and that has become my home in the recent years. I also have made a big investment here and planning to make some more. Also, I am earning a part of my income outside Germany and spending it here so contributing to the economics of this huge and wonderful country.
I do not find it contradicting to me saying something that I do not like here. It is ok. I do not like everything also in the country I came from. And it is normal. No people no countries are perfect. And it makes a planet a beautiful place.
