Lucky Thursday: Win Überlin Book

A while ago we already introcuded you to James and Zoe from überlin in our Berlin Experts series. We love their blog and their beautiful photos and were pretty sure that they are meant to succeed and aim for more. And in the meantime this has actually become a reality: The released their first book. What I know about Germans is a compilation of over 101 tongue-in-cheek observation about Germans and their quirky habits written by Liv Hambrett with illustrations by Josh Bauman. And I can tell you that much, these are not only funny to expats who live here among us Germans, but also for us. Yupp, we do have a sense of self-irony. We are raffeling off one of these awesome books because it’s your lucky Thursday. Take a look inside the book after the jump and find out how to win!

Just leave a comment below until Sunday (January 26, 2014) at midnight and make sure to use a valid eMail address in the form. If you feel like it tell us about the quirks of Germans that you came across so far. Good luck!

    Germans are bürokratisch! – I finally gave up on having internet in my house 4 months after I moved here: to. much. pain. and paperwork. I did “manage” to have a working bank-account after 3 months…

    Great book. Awesome illustrations. Germans smoke a lot of hand-rolled cigarettes with filters should be on this list.

    Excellent book – so much truth in it!

    In my experience, Germans sure do like to stare. So many photos from my recent Berlin trip show someone off to the side staring either at me or at the camera. I don’t think it’s a bad thing necessarily, just something to get used to.

    Very excited about the book!

    Ich liebe die Deutsche Bücher lesen. Ich wurde gerne mehr Deutsche sein.

    German quirks eh…? Since I moved to Berlin 4 months ago, many things puzzle me about the Germans:
    – how they keep their feet warm – mine, they freeze
    – the apartments are so well insulated – airtight like a lunch box – but the Germans have irrational fear of mould, and so they must also air out the apartment by opening the windows and doors, even in the current -12C temperature
    – random bar opening times – yes, it’s fun, and there’s always another bar around the corner, but but but….
    – Suppenhuhn – do not attempt to roast one of these things. I found out the hard way. It’s basically an old, sinewy chicken. Sunday roast was a falafel instead
    – Street-, train-, tram- and bus-beers – many Germans have a beer during transit – this phenomenon seems to straddle all demographics groups. It’s wonderful. And now I think I’ll do the same
