Well, it’s finally official and I can blog about it for sure. :-D! I am leaving for Germany. I got my work permit today and I would be taking off by the first week of July. I am still at a quandary tho as to blog about the whole thing here, or create a separate blog about it, now that wordpress does allow multiple blogs under the same name!
So, I would be as of now staying at either Erlangen or Forccheim in the state of Bavaria [Bayern] and would be working at Forccheim! Hmmm… I think it should be good :-D!!

congrats man! so is this like a temp or permanent posting?
It’s more like a temp-permanent posting :-D! I am going there to develop certain aspects of a product. Once the product is released, will have to be there for the KT and charms raised. After that, we’ll see from there. ;-)!
ooooooooooooohh..Bavaria..bet the place must be steeped in history, culture, and beautiful architecture..it’ll be sooper dude!!! congrats again!
Bavaria, huh? Cool.
Let us know how the place’s like. Do you get to travel to other places in Europe as well?
I do, but not for the first 3 months. Till then I am on a GERMAN visa. I have to apply for my Schengen visa [for other EU nations] from there. Once that’s granted, I can move my ass to about 9 countries :-D!!
The best part tho is that the driver’s license from India can be used as is, save for a German translation, which will be taken care of once I get there. The Delegation Centre will take care of it!!
Of course, planning to start a new blog on the German scenario and all. Will keep ya guys posted :-)!
cool. I’d have wished u luck with german women as well, but a european friend says the joke goes:
So well, good luck with the rest![:P]
Congrats dude! Hope you get to enjoy the “oktoberfest” there 🙂
Hahaha. But, heard they aren’t all that bad with the fairer sex, especially with the World Cup Fever ;-)!
Furthermore, EU is now open for travel, as soon as I get my Schengen visa. :-D! France is but 3 hours away from me ;-)!
I am indeed hoping to catch that. However, I have heard that it’s only oh-so-great for the foreigners. The Germans are pretty ok wth it. It was actually popularised by the Americans :-D!
Also, you know it started as a festival coz the Baron [if I remember rite] wanted to congratulate and offer his gratitude to all the farmers in Munchen [Munich]. Hence, it was a gala event. Now it’s a place where all the major beer players showcase their specialty in huge tents. :-D!
Let’s see.. Will definitely blog about it, unless I don’t make it :-)!
“Now it’s a place where all the major beer players showcase their specialty in huge tents. ”
That’s the “perfect” sentence containing the “perfect” word for me.
Will be looking forward for a post from you, while you will be sitting in one of the tents alongside a beer-keg 😀
I suppose you’ll find that they’re more the “paid” versions 😛
@ Neeraj: Amen!!
@ sukhi: LOL! Yeah read about that. Apparently they are having a very “profitable” time with the World cup “rage”?? ;-)!!
