All right, I got 10 minutes to write about 1 month (a bit less) in Germany.
Initially we’ve been shocked a bit, our arrival followed one really hot sunny day and then 5 or 6 rainy days. With rainy I mean, it poured, almost continuously. So that was a bummer.
What followed were a few really enjoyable days. Our container arrived a bit late and so we had time to kill and nothing to put together (meaning furniture). We met our parents, became members of the Zoo and really appreciated the excellent public transport. S-Bahn, U-Bahn, Tram and Bus took us wherever we wanted and the kids enjoyed that a lot, too.
We now finally got our container with the household, car is still being modified… the container truck driver from the UK was a bit a shock. Easily the most horrible person I have ever met in my life. He accused me of telling him to not bring his buddies to unload the truck, meaning he, my neighbor an myself did that job. When he left, we still had a rough 70 pakets unpacked in the house, so we spent a few days unpacking, sorting, putting together furniture. That was not too easy with the kids at home, but we made it.
Now we await our car, finally, and then we seek a normal, ordered life again from September on. Work, kids at kindergarten, etc. Call it normal, but for me and my wife it will be refreshing as we now spent camping (no furniture, no car) for more than 2 months. It’s time this is over :-)
