Where have I been?

Sorry for not posting for a while, but I have been super busy with other projects all of which relate to a house move, wedding and a major career change.

Unfortunately, my schedule is not likely to improve for the foreseeable future, although I will try and post some interesting tidbits periodically as and when I can. However, please bear with me as I will be studying in the UK for six weeks soon, and in Summer I will be in the USA getting married.

Bis zum nächsten Mal!

Traben Trarbach in 1941

I am always interested to see things depicting the Mosel towns and villages in days gone by.

Here is some footage of Traben Trarbach dating back to 1941. You’ll see a couple of Swastikas and the old iron bridge that was destroyed during WWII, so it hasn’t always been as peaceful as it is now!

Online German Property Searches

In response to a growing number of messages I am receiving asking about how to go about finding properties in the area, I can recommend the following web search engines:

Unfortunately, they are in German but it is easy enough to find your way around them using a dictionary, or for those who really cannot be bothered, by running them through an online translator such as the one available on Google Chrome.

I am working on doing a full article which will include common terminology and other bits of advice on finding property. I will publish that as soon as I can.

Merry Christmas or Frohe Weihnachten as the Locals Say

Just a quick posting to wish everyone a very merry Christmas and hope you all have a lovely time wherever you are.

I myself am currently in the warmer climes of Beirut in Lebanon where the wine is also good and I brought lots of Lebkuchen and other German Christmas treats with me!

Grüß aus Libanon ☺️
