Don’t say I didn’t warn you, although I have to admit that this warning comes a little too late, but if you’re an American planning to come over to vacation in Germany this summer and you’re not Paris Hilton, don’t do it. No, not because of security considerations or anything like that, it’s just too damned expensive over here. And come to think of it, don’t come over here if you’re Paris Hilton, either.

While many Germans are staying home for vacation this year for dark and unfathomable reasons of their own, a lot of Americans coming to vacation in Europe will wish they had. The miserably weak dollar has made vacationing over here even more expensive than it usually is, and that’s saying a lot.

Five dollar cokes and thirty to forty percent price increases on the same items you might buy back home are just a few of the examples this guy noted. This guy had it easier. But hey, like I said, I should have mentioned this before.

Well, there we have it. I said it. My, that was short and sweet. Now let’s move on. Besides, you’re already over here anyway.

I don’t know if we can afford McDonald’s tonight, honey.

Come visit me at Observing Hermann…
