This page features articles and a tour guide of places in Germany that you should visit. Articles include apsects of traveling from an expatriate’s point of view (including my pet peeve on the German Railways), while a tour guide features Christmas markets visited that are recommended (some of which are marked with TIP 🙂 ), as well as places in Germany that should be visited. This includes a section on Flensburg, where the column originated from and some interesting facts about the city by the border. The list is ongoing so stop back here on occasion if you want some ideas on where to go and what to be aware of while travelling. 🙂
