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…

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…
