10 things I learnt from my trip to Germany

  1. Doing things at the last minute does not always work.
  2. Anything is possible. Always prepare for possibilities like the taxi wheel rolling away or missing suitcases on the flight
  3. Never never ever make the mistake of flying with Air Deccan
  4. Always always check things with at least two people before deciding on a course of action. Mistakes can be costly (almost 90 euros :( )
  5. How to survive in a foreign land with almost no money and only marie biscuits and one small pack of nutella for two meals
  6. The miracle of how Germans survive eating German food. They only eat bread for breakfast, lunch or dinner (Even 300 different kinds don’t really make for much variety). They do not drink water – only wine, beer or soda.
  7. People are basically the same everywhere. Some nice and some idiots
  8. Germany has the best cars in the world
  9. Losing a tooth is not the end of the world
  10. Chocolates are very expensive, especially when you are counting pennies and have a long list of people back home waiting for you.
