Secret to Alleviating Chronic Pain?
Secret to Alleviating Chronic Pain? I once hired a kid from Arizona State University to help me with marketing. He asked me to explain what I do so he could prepare some materials. I thought about that for...
I was stationed in Germany back when I played racquetball for the U.S. Air Force.
And what I discovered about German food is that, while it’s not necessarily healthy, it sure is comfortable.
Wursts and sausages.
I’m getting hungry again just thinking about it.
But this is important to note: maybe the best part about German food was the German culture that surrounded it.
People genuinely cared about whether you were enjoying yourself or not. I’d never seen anything like that.
My job for the Air Force led me to drive tractor trailers all over the country.
Wherever I went, I preferred to stay in a gasthaus. The word gasthaus means inn. Today, we would call it a bed and breakfast, probably.
You actually stayed in someone’s home while they were still living there. They gave you a bed and fixed you a home cooked meal.
That became one of my favorite things to do in Germany. It gave me the chance to sample the food, get to know the people, and learn about the culture.
I learned the German language as fast as I could to go even deeper with the experience.
To date this has been one of the most important experiences of my life.
I urge anyone who hasn’t done it yet: travel as much as you can. Get to know other people. Enjoy. And learn!
