  • Interests I lived in Tsukuba (~60km NE of Tokyo) for two years and enjoyed the international community very much. Tsukuba consists mostly of research institutes, therefore there are a lot of foreigners around and they are all very internationally minded. Coming back to Germany I felt far more lost and homesick than I had ever felt in Japan, I hope to meet some people here that have a state of mind similar to the other gaijin in Tsukuba ...
  1. One-way van rental issues

    This might be the cheaper option:
  2. Changing Bank - is internet banking a viable solution

    I know exactly how they can afford this because I had one of their special bonus (when using the card to buy petrol etc.) credit cards for a while: They cheat. The card that I had was rolling credit but I always paid the full amount by the due day, except for a couple of times when I was a few days late. The interest for these few days would have come out to a few cent, but they always charged me several Euros. Each time I complained they just reimbursed the money, but it kept happening... Very strange IT "error". Probably most people will not look at their statements too closely and so they get away with it.
