It all started with a dream. During a semester abroad in Europe, Savannah Page visited Berlin, got lost in a former East German neighborhood, and made a discovery…and a promise. She was enamored of the multikulti city that offered her everything she wanted in a home: big city-life, rich history, on continental Europe, and a diverse community. She was determined to call Ber ...more

After reading "Bumped to Berlin" I am going to buy some fresh flowers, open a nice cold German beer and look at plane ticket prices to Berlin ASAP! Savannah paints a picture of Berlin that is so warm and inviting - that I can't help but to hope to include Germany in my next round of travels. Savannah, ready or not here I come to visit "your" Berlin. I dare you to read this book and NOT want to find a German husband and make the move across the pond!

I so enjoyed this book and I look forward to her next one. I have been to several cities in Germany over the last couple of years. Last year we were in Germany but only spent one day in Berlin so I can see we missed out on so much. Even though I haven't lived there, I can relate to many of the differences I observed between our American culture and the German lifestyle. I have loved both of my trips there and look forward to many more to come. We have also hosted some German students and friends ...more

I would expect an aspiring writer to proofread and to know the proper use of effect and affect, for example.

I enjoyed reading about her experiences in Berlin and her reflections on the cultural differences. I didn't enjoy all the pages spent on her personal shopping obsession.

Being a former ex-pat in Zurich made this book really click for me. It was enjoyable.

There was a really good book in here somewhere, but it sorely needed some copyediting and proofing. I enjoyed reading about the cultural differences between the US and Germany, and had some LOL moments while reading about the grocery shopping experiences of the author. A German friend of mine mentioned to me how nice the cashiers are in the US compared to Germany. I wasn't sure I entirely believed her until I read this book. :D I expect to hear more from this author in the future and hope she co ...more

I'm not sure what I was expecting from this book, so it was just okay. I suppose if I realized ahead of time that it was a How-To-Survive-in-Berlin guide, I would have appreciated it more. But, then again, I probably wouldn't have picked it up because I don't have any immediate plans to visit Berlin, let alone live there. The advice was handy, but the writing was a bit dull and pedantic for my taste. However, if/when I make plans to visit (or move to) Germany, I'll definitely reread this!
