So if I was surprised by how much I loved Leipzig, I was absolutely blown away by how much I love Hamburg. After my relaxing time in the beautiful city of Leipzig, I took a train north to a city I hadn’t really heard much about. Everyone thinks about Berlin when they imagine a bustling German … More Hamburg; A Surprising Blend of Old & New, Man & Nature
Let me tell you, I was completely surprised by how much I loved this city. The couple of posts I looked up as research before I went said that the city was beautiful and worth a stop, but I was not prepared to love it as much as I did. I guess the bus ride … More Leipzig; One of Germany’s Hidden Gems
So I finally got tired of all the jaw drops from people when they found out I hadn’t been to Munich yet after living in Germany for a whole year.

What better way to do that than … More The Frankfurt School visits Luxembourg
Life got really busy the last couple of week so I apologize for being late with this post. At the moment I am two weeks behind on my blogs because the weekend before last I was on a plane and last weekend I was moving to a new flat. Here I am, doing exactly what … More Birthday in Italy
Sorry this post is a week late. I was super tired after my trip and then I started work which basically consists of staring at a computer for 10 hours a day. The last thing I wanted to do when I cam home was stare at a screen to write a post. Museums After taking … More Berlin, Kassel, & Home Again
After a hectic semester immediately followed by running around the country, holidays, and adventure, it was very nice to take a breather in Berlin, staying at my former host mother, Vera’s house. I got there on New Years Eve (which I wrote a separate post about) and after that crazy night, I’ve mostly been taking … More Lazy Week in Berlin
On New Years Eve I hopped on a train at an ungodly hour to go to the second largest New Years celebrations in Europe. They say that the party in the 2 km stretch between the Brandenburger Tor and Victory Column hosted over a million people last year and the firework and laser shows the city hosts … More New Years in Berlin!
