Default Is there a 'Notes from Spain'-style Germany blog/forum?

Hola a todos!

Like the thread title says, just wondering if anyone has come across a blog/forum on Germany which is as good as NIS? I'm after something with as much debate and useful advice re regions and life in Germany as I've found here - the more I search the web the more I realise this website is pretty special! I know we're all Spain lovers here but thought some of you might be learning German too...?! Here's hoping!

Not that I know of.

I read somewhere that the best business ideas are the ones that can easily be packaged up and applied elsewhere (like supermarket/coffee shop/fast food chains, etc).

So maybe if Ben keeps applying is recently honed business skills and sky-is-the-limit attitude, we'll soon see NotesFromGermany, NotesFromFrance, etc, all based on his successful NotesFromSpain model, and maybe even a NotesFromEurope portal to access them all?

There's definitely a gap in the market! Ben, are you reading this..?

Can I apply for the notesfromgermany.com franchise?

Until then, I'll carry on blogging and podcasting on AllThingsGerman.

Hi, thanks for the link! I've had a look around your site and listened to your podcast about moving to Germany, which seems pretty useful. The site's now in my favourites list!

Hm this Notes from... idea is proving very popular, I'd better bag myself a country before all the good ones are taken! The Maldives, perhaps...? Am guessing NotesfromLiverpool wouldn't have the same appeal...
