Amsterdam Continued

I forgot to mention that on our 1st full day in Amsterdam, we had an AMAZING brunch at a restaurant called Bakers & Roasters. It was started by 2 friends, one Australian and one Brazilian and you can really feel that in the laidback, almost tropical vibe of the place. Apparently a line can be…

Foodstuff Fridays

Hey guys, sorry I’ve been quiet all week. It was really busy at work work with lots of late nights so I just got lazy in writing posts. But, it’s Friday and you know what that means?? It is Foodstuff Fridays, full of foodie links from around the web that I find during the week….

Amsterdam

Amsterdam was always on my bucket list (no, not for those special brownies) and we FINALLY decided to bite the bullet and go during the holiday weekend in August, thanks to a Brückentage or bridge day on Monday. Flights are direct from Nuremberg to Amsterdam and just about an hour. Easy, peasy. We left after…

Bagel Making Adventures

Something that seems to be severely lacking in Germany are really good bagels. Or bagels at all really. You can find them occasionally as part of a sandwich (I’ve seen them at the Coffee Fellows chain) but they have left a lot to be desired. It’s funny because back home I didn’t eat them all…

Malta – Part 2

You can’t go to an island(s) without going on a boat! We girls decided to do a boat cruise that took us to the islands of Gozo and Comino and included some stops along the way. The water was sooo blue. The first stop was on the small island of Gozo which is more rural,…

Foodstuff Fridays

Hello dear friends. I am going to continue my Malta trip but I thought I would maybe try something different on here (instead of just spewing out my trips and such). “Foodstuff Fridays” will now be a regular feature with links of food-related things that I find around the inter-webs. These could be anything from…

Maybe The Most Random Place I’ve Been

When I told people I was going to Malta, most were like huh? Where’s that? What’s that? Thanks to an opportunity for a girls’ weekend and super cheap Ryanair flights DIRECT from Nuremberg to Malta, I was off. Probably the only hot weekend I experienced all summer (it was in the 90’s as it was…

Professional Thai Chefs

As promised like a year ago, I wanted to talk about the cooking class that my husband and I took while in Chiang Mai, Thailand on Dec 31, 2016. You all know how much I love to cook and I take any opportunity to sign up for a cooking class. There were many to pick…

Schwarzwald – Day 2

We were lucky again when we woke up to beautiful sunshine as we headed off to Titisee-Neustadt, about 35 minutes from our hotel. The Titisee is a small lake tucked away in the Black Forest and was recommended to visit by a friend. This place must be hoppin’ in the summer time. It was almost…

The Black Forest

The Black Forest is not called the Black Forest because it’s black in color. No. It is named for how dense the forest is in the southwest corner of the state of Baden-Württemberg, Germany and is the backdrop for the Brothers Grimm fairy tales. This area of the country is known for it’s beauty, Black…

So

So. Yeah. I know it’s been like almost a year since I’ve last written. You can see I had been posting occasionally on my Instagram page but become…uninspired? I’m not quite sure. But I think I do want to get back into this. For starters, I am almost at my 2 year anniversary of being…

Thailand – Chiang Mai

After a short flight from Bangkok, we landed in Chiang Mai. We stayed at the Thannatee Boutique Hotel which was only about 40-50 euro a night and included breakfast and shuttles to the airport. Amazing. This had more of an authentic Thai feel in comparison to our Bangkok hotel. We spent that day just wandering…
