In just a couple weeks, the Mrs. and I will be headed back to Berlin for Kamailio World. Last year, we visited for the first time and Berlin truly made an amazing impression.
Yeni and I have always shared different views on punctuality, so visiting a city where timeliness actually means something had me in a great mood. Food was great, pricing was amazing, and transportation was easy.

To gear up for the trip last year, we upgraded our credit card to a card with no foreign transaction fees; and then found most places we visited in the city (as well as Germany as a whole) preferred cash.
I asked why people rarely used credit cards and the answer was both simple and representative of a different way of approaching privacy…
Where I spend my money is my business only.answer to why credit cards are rarely used in Germany
As I get ready to head back I’ll need to remember to bring cash.
