Friday 31st August 2012
It absolutely poured with rain today. Yesterday night it was decided that we would seek assistance. The British Consulate at Möhlstraße 5 would surely be able to help us solve a few of our problems! And sure enough so they did. We asked questions surrounding the following topics.
- Lohnsteuerkarte? (Income Tax Card)
- Sozialversicherungsausweis (Health insurance)
- Whether we need to register with a doctor
- Recommended accommodation?
- German sim for a phone?
These questions were all answered by a fantastically helpful man called Chris Dowers, he put us on the right path in about twenty minutes. In the afternoon we managed a Lidl shop to resupply us until Sunday.
Looking forward to Simon arriving from Stuttgart tomorrow morning on the express train!
