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…

Thailand Part 1

Happy holidays to all (obviously very belated). I hope everyone enjoyed their Christmases, Hanukkahs, and New Years! We just returned from our amazing trip to THAILAND on Tuesday morning. I’m struggling with how to split up my blog posts but hopefully you were following along on Instagram to see some of our adventures. We were…

Year in Review Part 2

Hey hey. We actually spent the day in Salzburg, Austria yesterday. Austria is a place I’ve never been to and Salzburg was only a 3 hour train ride away from Nuremberg. I will tell you all about that later but I am going to continue our year in review. I left off with Budapest, Brussels,…

One Year

Hi all. We have officially have been in Germany for 1 year! I can’t even believe it. It has been quite the year, we were able to travel to all kinds of places and experience living in another country with a new language. I would have to say we have adjusted pretty well. And have…

Life Lately

I know, I’ve been horrible about updating this thing. I need to get back into it. Truthfully, not a whole lot has been going on lately.Winding down at work before the holiday season has been the main focus. Since we traveled so much earlier in the year, we have taken the last month or so…

Sushi and Gin

Fall is in there air here in Germany. Actually it has felt colder than fall, brrr. Christmas market season isn’t so far away (Nov 25!) and the days are significantly chillier and darker. After a few crazy weekends, this weekend was pretty low-key. You saw on the Insta but I made a Smoke Salmon Niçoise…

Paris Day 3

Our third and final day in Paris 😦 Obviously our day started with this: After breakfast, we headed to the Basilique du Sacré Cœur which is located in the Montmartre. Montmartre is the artists’ part of the city and feels like a mini small town when you walk amongst the winding and hilly cobble-stoned roads. There…

Paris Day 2

There’s a corny country song by Terri Clark called “I Wanna Do It All” and one line is “visit Paris in the fall” therefore I had this song stuck in my head the whole weekend. We did not have as early of a start on Day 2 luckily and got some much needed sleep. We…

Paris Day One

Paris. Was amazing. I think I mentioned before that up until a couple of years ago, I had no desire to go to Paris. It was at the bottom of my list. I had started to become more and more interested. And now, I booked a trip with my husband for our 2nd anniversary to…

Fest Season In Germany

Hello all. I’ve been neglecting this poor little blog lately. I was back home in the US from the 13th through 20th for my sister’s wedding! It was full of ‘Murican food like bar pizza, pumpkin beer (oh how I missed you) Mac and cheese from Fat Cat, one of our favorite restaurants in Quincy…

Weekend Musings

Ah weekends go by too fast, especially when you do nothing. Actually, that’s a lie. My husband I were very productive yesterday after starting off the day with a cat staring into our window. The joys of being on the ground floor. We got an oil change and then walked to the mall (it was…
