Don’t let it stress you out!
Fortunately, my colleagues also integrate me a lot into their leisure activities, so that I get a lot from the country and its people. All in all, I was very warmly welcomed and I like the culture of going out very much. Here, for example, it is customary to simply divide the bill by everyone at the end of a meal. Annoying dividing up and calculating like in Germany is no longer necessary.
In addition, the colleagues confirm a nice cliché: they are productive on the job, but still more relaxed. Everything is done on time – with less stress factor. This is a skill that I absolutely want to retain in Germany.
