You can find germans in all countries of the world an usualy you do not have to search long for them. It’s true, germans travel a lot. Several Millions of us leave Germany every year during summer-holidays. The most favorite destinations for such travels are inside Europe: The coast and Islands of Mediterranean Sea like Spain, Italy, Greece and Turkey or the Mountains of the alpes in Austria or Swiss.

Sure, many Germans also stay in Germany for their holidays.

Just something about Germans travelling is a Myth: We do not have to wear uniforms while visiting Europe. This is an old myth from WW1 and WW2. And that times only the German men went out to see the foreign countries. Today most Germans do not like to wear uniforms. And the travel-Groups of single men are smaler and have a differnt interest: They look for Beer and Girls and not for conquering. Sending out uniformed travellers is privileg of other countries now.

This might be a true prejudice. The more: Germans like to have each job done till end - no halve things apreciated.

Lets take the war in Iraq as an Excample. After US bombed an officers-club in center of Bagdad to dust, german secret service found out, that there still are iraqi officers meeting there. “Just halve job done” the german Secret Service thought and teased the US guys, send them the coordinates again and confirmed their own prejudices about “Americans make their job only for half”.

But its not true, what Germans think about Americans: Those guys prooved, that they are able to use coordinates and informations and bomb something from dust to atoms - it just take sometimes some more time and sometimes the corrected informations …

From a friend in Tulsa Oklahoma I heard: “In Germany only three TV channels are broadcasted, so they can’t be informed, whats up in the world.

Are all Americans this stupid, or is this a Oklahoma hillbilly thing? How it comes, that a nation where most people do not differ between Australia and Austria judge a other nations knowledge?

Fact is, we have around 40 free TV channels, 4 news channels, at least 90 pay-TV-channels including porn TV.  Even channels like CNN and El Dschasira are broadcasted in Germany.
As you see, even if a nation has 200 TV channels, it doesn’t mean people are informed about the world.
