Best of Hamburg<3

Hello there Loves,

I hope y’all had a wonderful Christmas!
Ours was basically just one big feast but in between all the food and quality time with family and friends, I finally found some time to write down our experiences made in Hamburg. Such a charming city!<3 Continue reading “Best of Hamburg<3”

Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site

Hey everybody,

I promised there would be another post on our “falling back in time”-trip. As you know, Tristan, my american friend Tara and I first visited Neuschwanstein Castle.
We then headed north to Dachau to see the concentration camp.

It was built on March 22nd, 1933, and operated until April 29th, 1945, when it was finally liberated by U.S. forces. With its nearly 12 years span of life, Dachau was the concentration camp that was operated the longest. Continue reading “Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site”

Of Carriages and Real Life Fairy Tales: Neuschwanstein Castle

Hey Loves!

As some of you might already know – a friend from the states visited me in Germany last year. Two weeks were definitely not enough time to show her everything I wanted her to see. So we had a pretty tight schedule but, nevertheless, tons of fun! We especially enjoyed a little trip to Southern Germany: Early in the a.m. we headed out towards Füssen to see Neuschwanstein Castle because it IS true after all: Americans love sappy stuff. And this castle is the embodiment of real life fairy tales. Boys, listen carefully: Do not let your girls see this if you don’t intend on taking them there!

Enchanting Middle Rhine Valley

Hey there, loves!

Yep, still alive. Even if you haven’t heard from me in a while.
My boyfriend vacayed on Bali… Which left plenty of time for me to explore my closer surroundings.

Since I live on Rheingau’s doorstep and just love white wine, I couldn’t resist a little day trip to Germany’s senior paradise. Yep, you’ll meet mostly older people here but that shouldn’t keep you from visiting the Rhine River valley from Walluf to Lorchhausen anyways. This region offers breathtaking views over green vineyards, the rhine river and numerous castles and ruins. Great spot for bikers, too! The Wispertalroute with its plenty curves and serpentines is within closest reach. Continue reading “Enchanting Middle Rhine Valley”

Day Trip to Austria’s Leutaschklamm

I have a therapist. Her name is nature.

By now, you should know that I love the outdoors. Well, it’s a love-hate relationship because I’m not too fond of most other inhabitants that crawl or lurk around in the shadows. But when it comes to the weather (number one excuse for not going outdoors among Germans: “it’s too hot”, “it’s too cold”, “uhm, it’s raining?!”) – there is no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothes!
