That's incorrect.

We were somewhere around Barstow, on the edge of the desert, when the
drugs began to take hold. I remember "Richard Colton"

As a total contrast you might like to bid on something on ebay Germany -
you'll find that the vast majority of the sellers are happy to ship to
the UK, and don't block outside bidders. What's more, they're efficient,
helpful and unfailingly polite - they are Krauts, after all.

What makes you so reluctant to ship to Germany? If it's fear of being
ripped off, you needn't worry - I'd lay money on there being more
dishonest buyers in the UK, as a percentage. If it's a simple can't be
arsed to post abroad, it's hardly difficult and you're missing out on a
vast untapped market.

Try shipsurance. They do actually offer cover here.
