There would be two advantages to me in taking this step:
- I could vote here
- I could travel with a credit-card-sized Ausweis rather than a bulky passport.
And yet I am still unsure that this is a step I want to take. Previously I was quite sure that German citizenship was not for me, because I want to remain an Irish citizen. Now I could have both, and I'm still not sure. It seems that I am carrying more emotional baggage with regard to my nationality than I had supposed.
Has anyone else undergone a citizenship transplant?
