Duesseldorf and the Rheinbahn

I now have my monthly public transportation pass and I am going to ride to all corners of this beautiful city. I want to explore it all. I will begin taking some photos of the various sections of the city and will post them to this blog as I take them. It is so much easier having a monthly pass than trying to find the right change each time you get on the streetcar or underground.

Hi James,
very interesting for me to read about your life-changing experience because I actually went the other way: born and raised near Frankfurt/Main, I moved to the US (1 year Chicago, 8 years Seattle) and recently the magic of love allowed me to "conquer" my third continent, South America (although many consider America one continent!) Anyway, I now live in Lima, Peru for more than one year. I went through your adjustments and challenges a couple of times and you describe them perfectly.

wünsche Deinem Lebenspartner und Dir alles Gute, hang in there :-)


PS: These German washers ARE tricky. Even the Germans need to take classes to fully understand them.

I just made my way here via Actually and I have to say, I really enjoy reading your blog. I hope, you'll have a good time here in Germany and don't mind old pesty German ladies, they do that to everyone. I hope, it's nothing genetic because if I ever get like that I want someone to shoot me or well, at least, medicate me! ;)
And P.S. No matter what anyone else says there are some nice places to visit in the "Ruhrpott" as well or maybe visit the "Münsterland". Münster is my all time favourite city in Germany ( and no, has nothing to do with me growing up close to it..;)..)

Yay James! You tour around and get us some pictures because I'm loving getting to know Düsseldorf through your eyes!

Exploring foreign cities is always fun... one of my favorite memories in Prague was riding the subway out to the last stop and wandering around the neighborhood at the end of the line, which was vastly different from the city centre.

Heeeee's got a ticket to rrrrrrrrii-iiiiiide! :D

I love exploring on the train/subway. It's like a mini adventure. I love doing stuff with no plan and just ending up somewhere I didn't expect.

Have fun sweetie!

Aaaah, the monthly Karte. Such bliss. (<--sweet respite from speaking to grumpy drivers or sellers of tickets)

You sound like me, James--or how I want to be. With all my leisure time (rah rah), I really should get on the tram, on and off, all day long and find every nook and cranny of Hannover. Hmmm. You'll be my inspiration, I'm sure.

Is buying that monthly much cheaper? I had to learn those ins and outs of Switzerland and learned that the half price passs was the best buy, but I've got no idea in Germany... I'm sure you know what to get by now...
