New York meets Germany

Story behind this chapter

by Sascha Reinking

Just married! In November 2006 a guy called Sascha Reinking from the backwoods of Germany got married to Jackie, a girl from Portland. This wedding took place in his hometown, Döhren, which is by the way in the middle of nowhere. Lot's of brave Americans invaded Döhren with a blow-by-blow survival guide for New Yorkers who are forced to stop by in the land of Bratwurst and Autobahn (where the rubber meets the road).

This is not the story of this wedding - It is the story of a guide, a guide called The Travel Guide to Germany - not an Earth book, never published on Earth, and until this wedding took place, never seen or even heard of by any Earthman.

So sit back, relax and enjoy...

Let me start by putting something straight: Germans are nice people!

Forget everything you ever saw on TV or in the movies. Colonel Klink from “Hogan’s Heroes” probably isn’t the best example for German character studies. Don’t trust all the old wives tales you might have heard from people who never visited Germany. Forget all this…and witness for yourself.

We Germans might have a funny accent but we love to communicate.
We Germans might be stubborn from time to time but we have a big heart.
We Germans might like to complain but in the end we fix it.
We Germans might have had an obsession with David Hasselhoff in the past but that is long gone. I promise!!!
And yes, it’s true: We Germans like to drink beer…but be honest: Who doesn’t?!

With this little “travel package” I would like to give you some tips that could come in handy during your trip to Germany. The “knowledge” I would like to offer is meant to be more a “guideline” then strict rules.

And now, please follow me into the (sometimes entertaining) differences between the German and the American culture and some tips you don’t wanna miss.
