The colloquial Low German ("Plattdeutsch") spoken in several varieties in Northern parts of Germany is actually resembling English as both languages have their roots in North Sea Germanic dialects.
Swabian, on the other hand, belongs to the Upper German dialects, and is quite a different thing.
So, yes, I can understand that this was quite a change for him. :)

Germany as a country didn't exist until less than 150 years ago, and before that there were at times several hundred of smaller "countries" in the same place. All with their own sovereign, their own laws, their own measures (for weight, volume, etc.), their own currency, and also their own dialect.
Modern standard German is a Koin language that was basically started with Martin Luther's Bible translation in the 16th century.

The closest I ever got to Austria was after the first Gulf war when our unit came back to Germany. I went to Bertesgarten for a few days of R&R. The tour bus took us up on a mountain to the Eagle's Nest, and I was told looking down one side was Germany, the other Austria.
My sister, on the other hand, has been all over Europe. Actually, she lives in Hamburg now.

Almost all state borders produce similar feeling... "here are we, there are they".

Really? I still haven't visited even a half of the Europe... I mean that one where I don't need visas and expensive travels :-)

She was lucky. She's 10 years younger than I, and had the opportunity to be an exchange student in high school. Then later during college, she studied for part of her degree in Frankfurt.
She became a lawyer working with US companies operating in other companies.

Lots of travel.

I got to Germany in 1989, shortly before the Berlin Wall came down and Re-unification.
So he would have gotten there in 1986-87.
