The bumper sticker I received for contributing to Germany Ja

Over the last few weeks I’ve had a few posts published on Germany Ja and wanted to highlight them as well as tell you a bit about Germany Ja and other “Overseas Yes” sites. The “Overseas Yes” series started with Okinawa Hai. Then Germany Ja was added followed by Korea Ye. The purpose of the “Overseas Yes” series is to help those who get orders overseas go from saying “Overseas Yikes!” to “Overseas Yes!” Each site contains information in several categories: to do, to eat, to learn, to live, to shop, to travel, and to parent. If you have been stationed in any of these countries and would like to share your experiences, go to the “Writers Wanted” section at the top of Germany Ja or Korea Ye and the “Submissions” section at the top of Okinawa Hai.

Below you’ll find my posts to Germany Ja in the order they appeared:

Saving Money at the Commissary was posted November 27th and provides a few tips on ways to save money at the commissary when stationed overseas (although some of the tips could apply to those of you Stateside as well).

6 Thoughts on “Contributions to Germany Ja

  1. I’m a fellow GermanyJa writer from Graf 🙂

    • 🙂 How do you like it up there?

      • We have been here since Jan 2008 and we are in the middle of our 2nd tour…Graf…meh, theres better posts but atleast we are in Europe, have nice housing and close to all the major cities. I would say I love it more than I hate it but then again we have been here for that long that most bad stuff has either changed by now or grown on me lol
