You wanna go to Germany? Here are some things you  need to know before you go from a German native! 

Hallo Servus and welcome back to my Youtube  channel! My name is Felicia, I’m originally from  

Munich, Germany but have been living in Cincinnati  Ohio off and on since 2016. Now travelling isn’t  

really a thing right now but I know that many  of you can’t wait until that’s gonna be possible

all of you who’ve always wanted to visit Germany –  or even move to Germany – I’m sharing some things

220-230 Volt in Germany whereas it’s only 120 in  the US and not all electronic devices can handle  

the switch so be sure that you do some research  about that before you go. Especially hair dryers  

and hair straighteners usually don’t work with  a different voltage – I actually broke a hair  

straightener once because I tried using my German  one in the US and that just made it stop working.  

What does work usually though is laptops and phone  chargers and those kind of things. And even though  

I’m obviously aware that the outlets are different  I totally forgot about it this past Christmas when  

I went home to be with my family cause I got  a new laptop recently in the US that came with  

an American charger and I totally forgot that for  the first time ever, I’d need an adapter that goes  

from an American plug into a German outlet, and  not the other way around, but luckily my dad has a
