Munich: The Most Hyped City in Germany

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. I really didn’t know what the fuss was about, after all, there are so many beautiful cities in Germany. After finding out that I basically…

Travel Germany this Summer with Super Cheep Train Tickets

So much has happened since uni let out for summer and yet nothing at all. To sum it up, after about a week of emails, meetings and appointments, I confirmed that my visa will only allow me to work 120 days per calendar year, no exceptions. When I had been issued my visa, I was…

Berlin, Kassel, & Home Again

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…

Lazy Week in Berlin

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.

A Traditional German Christmas in Bremen

Between working the majority of my winter break and how expensive plane tickets are, I knew a long time ago that I would be spending the holidays and my birthday away from family. As many of you may know from my last post, I was invited to stay with my friend Ivana and her family for…

(Re)Visiting Darmstadt

This week turned out to be a bit lazy but I still have some fun stuff to share with you all. Darmstadt On Monday I went to visit my friend from Darmstadt. It was so good to see her after having not seen her for over a year. We went for coffee, ran a few errands, and…

Stunning Festival of Lights in Berlin

What a fun and busy week. This is what I signed up for when I moved to Europe. Botanical Gardens I originally thought that this week would be very boring so I decided to spend a day in the Frankfurt Palmengarten. It was very nice and I got many beautiful photos. It’s rather small compared…
