"Germany - my roots" Germany by Mandy23

Germany Travel Guide: 59,437 reviews and 181,011 photos

I am now a resident in the U.S., but Germany is where my roots are. I am a German citizen and was born in this beautiful country. If it wouldn't have been for the love of my life who is American, I would still live in Germany. I was actually born in the East Germany, the former "DDR" (Deutsche Demokratische Republik). Even though I was relatively young, I do remember the fall of The Wall very well and the following re-unification of east and west Germany. An event so special, will always be one of my strongest memories.

Pros and Cons
  • In a nutshell:bustling big cities, idyllic rural areas, 1,000 year-old cultural monuments and high-tech industrial plants, lowlands and mountains, culture and commerce, science and folklore

    They think that you are playing with yourself under the table and find it rude.

    on gargabe separation: I'm a lawyer by training and profession, but I find myself often in front of this choice of trash cans trying to figure out what goes where. I've had cases that were easier to solve!!!!
