After we finished work yesterday my host here in Germany, Ralf, took me on another quick sight seeing tour. We went back toward the area we visited a couple of days ago, but not quite as far this time. The town we stopped in is called Rudesheim and it sits on the banks of the Rhine River. It’s a very pretty town with very narrow streets and lots and lots of pubs.

From there we went up to the Niederwalddenkmal monument Continue reading

Currently I’m over in Germany, and well the television that I can understand is quite limited. Apart from CNN and BBC News, the only other television channel that I can even remotely understand is MTV Germany. About half of their programming is in English and consists of the standard MTV fare, ie. Rock of Love, Viva La Bam, Nitro Circus, etc. as well as a selection of American and British music videos, the other half are German music videos.

While I can’t understand what they’re actually singing, I can get a sense of what the song is about and whether it has a good tune or not. So here you go, my favourite German music videos…as seen on MTV.de Continue reading

Today I arrived in Germany. Man am I wrecked, I think I managed about 6 hours sleep since I left Newcastle early Saturday morning. Hopefully the belly full of snitzel, and beer, I now have will help me get some sleep.

To try and adjust to the time zone a little better my host here in Germany, Ralf, took me on a tour out into the country side today. I have never seen so many castles in my life. Continue reading
