In summer, when the weather is nice, no one raises the questions: “how to keep little children entertained on a rainy, gray days”? Well, if you live in Düsseldorf, rain here is the daily bread, and the sun rather a rarity. Let’s face it, every day hanging out in the wet sand at the playgroundRead More
Founded in 1895 and entered the league in 1913 they were a fixture in top-flight play from the early 1920s up to the foundation of the nationwide Bundesliga in 1963 where they participated in 22 seasons between 1966 and 1997. But I won’t be telling you the F95 story…If you want to know more justRead More
If you come on a tour, passing by chance, or intending to move to the “ex-enemy fortress”, please familiarize with a few basic words, phrases or names. Curses are no longer enough as a “weapon”. I will serve you a couple of useful German classics, which will allow you to dive into the world of sauerkrautRead More
Being expats, we often feel isolated from the country we come from, or we arrived. Often changing the language from which we deal with in everyday life in past create quite considerable problems for smooth conversations with the outside world.
We would like to turn on the television and hear the news in “our language”. Take up a newspaper and read an article about unimportant aurora borealis … in “our language” , not clipping syllable and sweating at the same time.
In Düsseldorf you have an opportunity to purchase a foreign language newspapers, unfortunately, in limited places of the city, including the main station Hauptbahnhof. The huge Grauert shop has it’s own site where you can check what interests you directly or take a trip and get lost in tons of books, magazines and DVDs offered by the store. The biggest source of Mangas!
If it’s true that we are what we eat, Germans are? What?
I introduce to you Spezialitäten:
1. Würstel – a vienna sausage is a kind of hot dog. Mainly made from pork,finely ground to a paste consistency and mixed with salt and spices, notably mustard, then stuffed into a long casing, sometimes smoked and always thoroughly cooked.
2. Eisbein – literally ice leg/bone, is the German name for a culinary dish involving the pickled ham hock, usually boiled, alternatively grilled on a barbecue.
Heavily marbled meat covered with a thick layer of fat.Commonly served with boiled or mashed potatoes or sauerkraut, and with mustard.
So let’s start weather: shitty almost whole year; no winter, no summer; generally rainy; food: boiled pork; roasted pork; fried pork; pork; currywurst; Altbier; public transport: exist; always in delay; inversely proportional to the ticket price; D’dorf tribe: never smile; wearing Marc O’Polo and Tom Tailor; drinking Altbier; eating pork; laughing loudly during drinking AltbierRead More
Not always spending less you will make a good deal! ‘SPAREN!’ I don’t understand why the German people are using that word as the “amen” in a prayer.
Every shop, every supermarket, every stand in the market shouting “SPAREN!” even if they want to sell you something completely useless.
But the Germans buy because the price reduction is an ‘opportunity’ that can NOT be missed!
I’ve heard a metropolitan legend once, about how the German take a shower, in the meantime washing with his feet his own clothes taken off before. All for the water savings…
Well … Hopefully it was only a legend…
If on the advertising flyer there is no such word as ‘Sparen!’ that kind of piece of paper isn’t even taken in consideration.
This time we take you on a Journey to the West. Not wild, but different.
There are red brick, low-floor houses.
Strong aromatic beers.
Chocolate in a hundred different flavors and colors “pouring out” to the street from every other patisserie in the old town.
Crowd of tourists.
Narrow, cobblestone streets.
Half-naked women in spring dresses at a temperature of 13 degrees is a chilling sight.
And everything not so far away!
Welcome in Brugge. Belgique.
