Denglish 1: My Wife Lives in A Tiny Apartment in Marburg, Germany

My wife once described her college apartment in Germany at Philipps-Universität Marburg in the following manner:

THE WIFE: “It’s in a medieval building and the showers are communal; you have to use tokens and you only get 10 minutes of hot water. The ceilings are too low for you. There are only 2 rooms. I live in a Hobbit House!”

  1. Got to love rain when camping. My husband and I camped out when we went white water rafting after we got married. It started lightening when we got the tent out. By the time it was set up there was a full thunderstorm. Woke up in the morning almost as wet as I imagine we’d have been if we just slept outside lol.


  2. Hi, I ran across your website after searching for differences between American and German weddings. I myself come from Texas, living in Germany with my fiance. bla bla bla I started reading though your blog and ran across this specific one… I too went to Philipps Universitaet Marburg :D I always thought it was such a small town, but lo and behold, other people have gone there as well!

    I look forward to reading the rest of your blog! Good to know there are others who hate all the German grammar!

    Liebe Gruesse aus Stuttgart!
