Although I liked Germany, there were definitely things I wish I had known before I went over. Here is a collection of tips based on the snafu’s I encountered in my time there. Many thanks to Tina, who contributed to this.

1. Have or get Euros immediately. In America, we can swipe our credit card for everything, including a $2 McFlurry at mcDonald’s. Not so much in Germany. Although I had called my bank before leaving America to make sure my Visa card would work, I was surprised at how many places didn’t accept credit cards and further… didn’t accept Visa.
