Our Junk Arrived!

Boxes of Junk

Boxes of Stuff

It took about 7 weeks, but all our worldly belongings finally made it to Germany! We had them shipped by boat, which takes forever. Every day, I longed for a sharp kitchen knife and a sauce pan. And I can’t wait to get my rocking chair put together. The floor in this apartment is ridiculously hard.

There were a few small damages to larger furniture items, but everything packed in a box looks good. What I didn’t see coming, was electric problems. Before we left the US, I went around and checked a bunch of electronics. My computer? Check. Monitor? Check. Various other things? Check. Everything else? Forgot to check!

So here is a comprehensive list of all the electronics we shipped three thousand miles, and can not currently use.

  • Rice cooker
  • Bread maker
  • Computer speakers
  • UPS battery backup
  • Laser printer

I was hoping to avoid getting a voltage converter, but it looks like we’re going to need one. I hate converters.

But enough of that! Time to make some sauerkraut!

    I can see your bike in the corner! Did you buy one for the breadwinner yet?

      Not yet!

      Speaking of bikes, our apartment comes with a downstairs storage space, which is apparently pretty common in Germany. It’s nice to have. Keeps stuff out of the way.

    Now you are truly home. Congrats!
