Haha, willkommen zum horseforum!!
Mir kommt vor, dass es eher ein treffen von alled deutschen users ist:). Ich komme aus Tirol, aber lebe in Suedafrika seit 8 Jahren, habe schon 2 Pfrede und ein Pony gehabt. Es ist schade, dass Pferdehaltung soooo viel kosted in Europa :(. Uebrigens, meine grammatik ist warscheinlich nicht die beste, aber ich bin ja auch seit 8 Jahren unter englisch sprechenden leuten..... Ciao

Welcome to the forum
And as you see we already have some willing translators here that will be only too happy to assist if you need!!!
I lived in a small village called Heiligenkirchen just outside of Detmold for a year, it was a really beautiful area.

I expect its changed a lot since I was there. I can remember going shopping in Bielefeld as they had department stores for clothes there that were more like the UK ones and a lot cheaper than the very traditional stores in Detmold - though they sold better quality stuff they were expensive. We bought most stuff from the NAAFI in Detmold
I'm afraid my German was limited to buying things from the local village and doing my best to be vaguely understood in general!!!

No longer military in Detmold. My dad was brought up there as my Opa was 9/12. He lived with my Great Grandmother, and didn't learn English till he was 7. We went and looked at the old house.. fallen in to disrepair and really spooky!

Bielefeld is a lovely town centre, far better than what we came from. I just can't wait to get on the Ridge during winter with the dogs! All a bit soggy at the moment.

Just had a TK MAXX open in Bielefeld.. and the Germans love it!

My German is typically limited to horses. I am improving, and understand more than I speak. After living on an English base for 11 years, my German really suffered. Everyone on the base, and surrounding towns would speak English.

I want to live out here forever, but BFG will be gone by 2020. I currently work with the persons responsible for the drawdown process. Very sad to see it all go!

Can't live out of the NAAFI anymore. Its full of Iceland and pretty rubbish. You're lucky if you can get white bread. We shop mainly in Lidl and Martkauf- a lot cheaper too!

Ja genau lol. Grammatik ist mehr English als deutsch. Ich war 8 Jahre in Ifalien bevor ich hierher kam. Hat meinem Deutsch auch nicht geholfen, mein Goettergatte hat sich koestlich amuesiert mit drei Sprachen in einem Satz....
