Ich wunsche Innen einen schönen tag (Have a nice day)
I am a foreigner and living in Germany right now. I agree what Manuel del Vol said "Ignore the people who give you dirty looks and those who are openly rude (and yes, you will come across a few) - They're not people you want to know anyway and there are plenty of other people who will accept you - particularly if you try to accept them" That is quite true what I am facing.
English is not common in Germany, if you don't know the language, you will feel quite alone, not so easy to find some friends.
Besides, I would like to remind you if you plan to married in Germany, you need to get approve from court by married dept in Germany and submit a lot of documents eg Passport, Org. Birth certificate, certificate to proof your are signle. If married & divorce before, you need to submit completed divorce paper and old married certificate. All doucments must certified translated into German. It takes min 3 months to proceed, court charge depends on your ex-salary.
You also need to consider how many chance for you to find a job in here. No matter how good edcated peoples like my man. He has Master Degree "Msc" and he was a Director in Asia.. When we back to Germany, he is difficult and take long time to find a job. Recently, he got it but not so good offer as before.
Hope this info. can help you to prepare yourself to come to Germany !
Thanks very much for your reply. I am glad to know have such nice lady in Germany that I never meet.
My hushand was contacted the transportation dept in Germany several times. All of them replied that the Hong Kong driving license can't convert to German one, I must have a written test and driving test but no need to go to the driving school that proceeure I could skip it. He was question they why the German driving license holders are entitled to convert in HK only, why I cannot get the same benifit in here which is not equal for the HK people. Honesty, the people who's working in the government dept are not really kind and nice that what I had for the past one year.
Causeway Bay is my favor area, I was living in Tai Hang before and you?
But Hong Kong is too small, too crowded everywhere and too hot.
I am came from HK and living in Erfurt. I think I can"t meet you gals in Karlruha becuase my Hk driving license can't exchange in to German one.
Do you have any idea which I can swap my driving license into German one. As I know I can go to UK to swap it but not sure whether sucessful or not becuase I am not the residence there. If I borrow the uk address from my friend and register as a residence. Is it possible to do so? Can you give some advise ?
