Why it always rains there?????
In a nutshell
Much to experince if you like to party.
If you plan on doing a lot of travelling in this area and can afford a rental car, get one. While Germany has a good train system, the cheap tickets will get you the slow train. Germany also has a great bus system for heavily populated areas. Spangdahlem is not a heavily populated area though. Taxi fares in Germany are very expensive. A 20 minute taxi ride will cost you the same as an all weekend train ticket.

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Germany has as much, if not more, rain than the Pacific Northwest. The only difference is that here it is very unpredictable. We joke about the changes "if you don't like the weather, just wait a few minutes". I've literally seen the sunny and warm/rain storm/lightning storm/hail storm/snow on the same day here.
The morale to the story. Always keep a jacket and an umbrella handy!

Favorite thing: If you meet a German who you know is fluent in English there are a few German-English (Genglish) phrases you can use. Sometimes the results can be very entertaining:
- Instead of "Morgan" (good morning in German) say "Morgan y'all".
- Instead of "Dankeschoen" (Thank You) say "Donkey Shorts".
- Instead of "Bitteschoen" (please, thank you, you're welcome) say "Bitter ***".
- Instead of "Auf wiedersehen" (formal for goodbye) say "Auf wieder bye bye".
I'm sure there are others that I just don't remember at the moment, but I'll be back for updates later ; )
