Why I love Germany


A German with a sense of humor does exist. I was watching Deutsche Welle last night and it was actually in German instead of English. I swear every time I turn on that channel, people are talking in English… Anyway, there was a report on Moritz Volz (he’s a Fulham footballer/soccer player) and how he likes to ride around London on his bike. You have to check out his website. The song on the main page kills me.

See him cycle down the Fulham road
His German sausage in his hand

He plays football but he hardly ever scores

He dreams of Knight Rider and the fatherland

Ja, Ja, he is an alien, a humorous Westphalien

He’s a German man in West London

The Where It’s At page includes useful German phrases, such as Wo kann ich die neue David Hasselhoff CD kaufen? When is David Hasselhoff’s new album out? and Mir juckt’s in der Lederhose. My lederhosen are a little itchy.

The Hoff love is real. We all know that David Hasselhoff saved the world. Click on the picture if you don’t believe me. If it’s tagged on an abandoned building in east Berlin, it must be true, right?

    OMG, don’t even get me started on how much I love the Hoff. I mean, who else could make those genius music videos??? This soccer guy may become a favorite too!

    I think it’s awesome that he believes he’s the reason why the Berlin Wall came down.

    Gotta love modesty. And this:

    Haha, yep, I couldn’t believe it when I found out he performed live ON THE BERLIN WALL the night it came down.

Why is Jennie no longer in France?

I created this blog in September 2006 when I moved to France from Michigan to teach English. Many of the earlier posts are about my personal life in France, dealing with culture shock, traveling in Europe and becoming fluent in French. In July 2011, I relocated to Australia to start my PhD in Applied Linguistics. Although I am no longer living in France, my research is on foreign language pedagogy and I teach French at a university so these themes appear most often on the blog. I also continue to post about traveling and being an American abroad.
