Berlin in 2023

Will be back in Berlin later this month for 4 nights. Was there in 2020 for a super short visit. Y'all gave me some good advice last time; got any new advice? What should I eat, where should I go? Am a fan of food, thrift shops, flea markets, farmers markets, film, queer-friendly spaces, and good sex toy shops. Please note: I do not drink alcohol. Am not a vegan but am vegan friendly.

What should I do in Frankfurt?

I’m spending a couple of days in Frankfurt. I like quirky stuff, social experiments, and any sort of event or space that fosters interaction among people. Basically, I like something where you can show up and interact with people, or something weird and unusual, and bonus points for something that is both those things. What would you recommend?

Purchasing a hard sided cat crate in Frankfurt Airport?

This coming spring we'll be moving from Denver to Tbilisi, Georgia, with our cats. We're able to have both of them in cabin with us from Denver to Frankfurt, but apparently one will have to be in the hold for the Frankfurt to Tbilisi leg. We can work with this, but I can't figure out how we're going to find a hard crate at the airport. Lufthansa didn't have any suggestions -- anyone have any ideas?

American accountant with no CPA looking for a job in Germany

I am planning to move to Germany with my fiancee, who is an EU citizen but not from Germany but she speaks German fluently. I am an accountant and I have around 8 years experience, but my title is still staff accountant, and I have no CPA. However, I do have a Masters in Accounting. I also do not currently speak German, but I have a strong interest to learn it since I like languages. I just want to know what the job market in Germany will be like for me with the credentials I listed above. Will I have a difficult time finding a job?

Last-Minute Trip to Germany

My partner is going to Germany for work, (Hamburg, Frankfurt) and I impulsively bought tickets to visit. They were an unbelievable deal. The low cost is offset by the fact that the tickets don't go exactly where I need to be. There will be trains and buses involved. I don't speak German. Having never been to Germany, how feasible is this? [more inside]
