The German Winter

The beauty of Neuschwanstein under the snow.

Germany is about extremes. Painfully low temperatures in the winter and a crushing sun in the summer. How does an Englishman, used to soft grey skies, survive that?

Well, huddling in a bar is a good start. Until you realise that smoking is accepted in bars in certain regions of Germany. It is too cold to go outside to have a cigarette. Allowing people to smoke indoors is therefore logical right?

In my experience, having a drink in a bar where everyone smokes is enduring: prickly eyes, a sore throat and gasping lungs.

A room full of toxic fumes where people can’t breathe…now what does that remind me of?

I cough!
