    yes you have to check in online and print your boarding pass. unless you order a hold bag expect be charged fro your guitar which will not fit the hand baggage criteria.They wont charge you 70 euros at check in unless you have not checked in online and not brought your printed out boarding pass with you. Take the opportunity to check your guitar and pay for it online. this will avoid a bag fee at the airport which is likely higher.

    The problem with Germany is that they identify dogs being on a leash as the only way to control them (overkill) as opposed to UK law which requires the dog to be "under control" whch does not specifically state leash...its all in the mentality...

    Dusiburg has two, Essen has one, Krefeld might be favourite although there wsa McGlaughlins there at one time which then closed...but I see that there is two there now.
    Bonn has a couple, Koln a couple...this link tells you where pubs are currently located so you can avoid competing..

    from a purely literary view..the story is interesting, enough to keep the reader if not riveetted, interested, at least.
    There could be a lot more descriptive prose especially regarding the student lady, how did she look, in detail, how did she smell, how did you feel? and the like.. Liked the humour..try deeping your memory track and relive the moment, if indeed this was an experience that happened to you, if not then deeply trawl your imagination to bring it more alive for the reader, I understand that you are not neccessarily writing for the reader. Perhaps drag out the sights sounds, smells, passion, desires, whatever it was. This will help captivate, more deeply atune the reader.

    Oh and of course everyone likes to be a critic, some just are plain nasty, some are constructive...It is a brave soul who puts their writing up for all and sundry to shoot at..

    There is an International School in Dusseldorf and Neuss, perhaps your future employer could include paying for your childrens education. It would be hard to enter German school system at their ages (for them)given the language challenge

    I agree with the above. I am beginning to believe the OP has had his chance, has been told the corrct can lead a horse to water..the solution is in his hands...if he doesnt take the opportunity then he cannot be helped...obviously avoiding conflict is more improtant than his masters thesis and health...

    Imho trying to get a huge raise is to negotiate a good salary at the beginning. Losing salary for lack of German in a tech business is simply unwise. Generally all younger Germans especially those engaged in those type of businesses are good english speakers.
    You are selling yourself short and they, are, by their offer, showing you that you are not really valued by them. Just saying.
