Halloween: The Big Let-Down

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 31, 2016 in Immoral Conversations |

I may well not say it, but I certainly think it every year: Halloween was a let-down. Halloween in Germany, at least outside of the big cities, is boring. I am sure there are plenty of parties and theme nights amidst the bright lights, but here, well, no. In fact, I have hardly seen a […]

Panic In The Aisles

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 2, 2016 in Immoral Conversations |

It’s that time of the year again and, unlike last year, that time of the year falls on a weekday. Happiness for those who can claim an extra day off from work, rather than complaining that a holiday day falls on a day which is free anyway, but mass panic when it comes to the […]

Journalism: Changing Our Understanding

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on May 13, 2016 in News & Opinion |

There was a fire in the neighborhood last weekend, a barn next to one of the local hotels caught fire on the morning following a holiday day when many people go out and celebrate Father’s Day. In Germany we celebrate both but in completely different fashions: on the one the women get breakfast in bed, […]

Germany: The Day Of Work

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on April 30, 2016 in Immoral Conversations |

Anyone can claim that Americans are strange, and be perfectly correct, but should remember that everyone in foreign countries is strange, according to their own traditions and customs. Wherever we travel, we find the curious and startling simply because things are different, and we’re not used to that. Settled in our ways, some believe everyone […]

Stuff Your Global Warming

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on April 24, 2016 in Immoral Conversations |

It’s the start of spring over here, and we have had several hours of sunshine to prove it. Everywhere the flowers are beginning to bloom, the trees are taking on the first of many shades of green and there is a fresh, revitalizing smell in the air. Except when the local farmers spread their muck, […]

Watching Paint Peel

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on April 19, 2016 in Personal |

I was amused, recently, to read a set of comments about those who write blog posts, add status updates to their Facebook profile, photos to their Instagram profile or Tweet to Twitter apologizing for not having been present for a while. Generally they seem to ask if anyone had missed them which, as we all […]

Cellphone Users: You’re Missing The World

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on March 11, 2016 in Immoral Conversations |

Have you seen those people who believe that they are so important they must be reachable at all times of the day and night? You know the ones: they have a gadget permanently stuck in their ear; they sit in art galleries looking into the laps; they hold up traffic on the freeway; they walk […]

ICYMI: Combating Climate Change

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on February 29, 2016 in Immoral Conversations |

Some people take climate change seriously, some are still skeptical or, for some unknown reason which has nothing to do with reality, cannot accept that there is any form of change. And then there are those who try to make something of the whole climate change debate without actually doing anything. I caught sight of […]

Syke: For Foresight And Knowledge

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on February 13, 2016 in Immoral Conversations |

I’m not in the business of giving out awards, but if I were, and because my interests tend – as far as my further education goes – in the direction of tourism and transport, I would definitely want to give an award to the town of Syke for their wonderful attempt at solving a traffic […]

One Season Ends, The Next Begins

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 28, 2016 in Immoral Conversations |

Have you finished shoveling snow yet? Or has the weather changed where you are and the rainy season begun? If you’ve just managed to clear up all the mess after a successful Christmas festival, you’ll be glad to hear that things are moving on and you do not need to worry about preparing yourself for […]
