One of my uncles works for the US Army in Germany, after having retired from a career as an Army NCO. He married a German woman, who has also since retired.
I received a message from the German arm of my family recently, inviting me to come over and visit them. They said if I wanted to stay longer, it is easier to find work over there. I have never been to Europe at all. The last time I crossed the Peace Bridge into Canada, you didn't need a passport.
I was never more curious about seeing Europe than I am now. The fact that my hometown's economy is in horrible shape is probably giving me more inspiration. It would be quite a major move, but I am curious.
Has anyone in this forum travelled to Germany in recent years? Has anyone here worked there, or worked for German employers? What is it like to visit or live there?
