I have been in love with Germany as long as I can remember myself. My grandfather who was in the war taught us how important the Franco-German friendship is. While growing up I was always very interested in Germany and its culture. For a long time I dreamt about marrying a German and having a Franco-German child. The dream has come true.
I have this feeling, and I didn’t expect it actually, that in Germany people are more free. There’s so much trust in people. It’s expected that everybody follows the rules, which provides a sense of more freedom for everyone. For example, you can grill in the park. In France it would end with such a mess! So you cannot even allow anybody to grill in the park. It really was a surprise for me – this unexpected sensation of freedom through personal responsibility.
