A few short years ago I had cause to move with my entire family to the country you know as Germany.
We would live there from July 2006 to June 2007.
During that time, we would be known as Auslanders, outsiders, aliens, and we would experience, for the first time, the feeling of immersing ourselves into a culture that, while it seems from the outside to be pretty similar to our own Canadian culture, is actually very different. And we would be doing all that immersing in another language that none of us could speak.
The stories that came from that year were collected in my original blog for close friends and family, and now, after a bit of seasoning, I am collecting them into a book which will be published by FauxPop Media in the next few months.
I hope that you will read these stories as I present them here at fauxpop.tv, and then I hope that you will go on to buy my book and allow me to trade that money you gave me for food, soap and Apple products.
