It's Official, I'm Off To Germany

Recommended Posts

I finally decided to leave the UK for good. With Goride at the helm things are only going to get worse, and the seeds of more HPI are being sown, regarldess of the eventual consequences. Living standards are going down for most people, resonable jobs are harder and harder to find, and the misery our economy inflicts is becoming more and more evident on the streets.

It`s a good job this is not WW1 as you would find yourself in front of a firing squad executed for cowardice. :)

you can't run away from the global central bank agenda - it'll catch up with you eventually

Probably a good decision. What are you going to do for work, or is this a work related move?

If you can figure out how to move all your stuff over there cheaply then please tell. Removal men cost several thousand. So at the moment we're considering hiring a Luton van and driving it over there ourselves a multitude of times. But as my partner hasn't ever driven in Germany and is scared witless driving anything larger than a car, it's not something we are looking forward to. I did start learning to drive (and really enjoyed it) but had to give up as we couldn't afford the lessons anymore.

Congrats on the choice by the way.

Good for you but why did you chose the most uninteresting country in europe. If you're going to leave go somewhere exciting and decent.

No way, Germany is fantastic. It would be my choice, maybe I'd also consider Denmark and Sweeden.

BoomBoom, what will you be doing for work?

Another ignorant post. Which part of Germany are you thinking of, or are you just dismissing the whole country.

Of course, you'd want to avoid moving to somewhere like Rostock.

Not the whole country just 90 % of it sucks.

Don't know how you'll solve the van problem (although they're not much harder to drive than a car, especially on a motorway), but Speedferries' multitrip vouchers are a bargain and they currently have an offer on the 6 trip one: http://www.speedferries.com/speedVoucher6.php

What a strange thing to say. I've lived in Germany for 10 years, wife is from there, and we wouldn't claim to even know 10% of the country well enough to make a comment like that on it.

Ooh thanks for that link!

As for the van problem, I reckon a large whip might help solve it. Actually, we have two options. The retired husband of a friend of my parents loves driving and has driven to Germany before. My brother has also driven in Germany. So we're thinking of trying to get them to travel with us for a week at Christmas.

Unfortunately, the voucher is only valid for one person, who must be on each trip the voucher is used. Even buying normal tickets, they're still the cheapest way I've found to cross the channel.

edit: clarification
