Swiss Miss is legit

Share Alden and I went in search of “budget dining” this afternoon in Lauterbrunnen.  Not necessarily for the section of the magazine, but for the sake of our own wallets.  After seeing several restaurants with pizzas and sandwiches costing 20+ CF, we found a “cafe bar” across the street from a backpacker’s hostel and hoped…

We walked through the city of Regensburg, which is about an hour and half train ride from Munich, and saw tons of examples of incredible architecture, great people, outdoor cafes and more!

Germany’s Romantic Road- Augsburg & Landsberg

Germany’s Romantic Road- Augsburg & Landsberg

Share Over the past four or five days, I have seen more castles, palaces and cathedrals than most Americans will probably see in a lifetime. And all of them were at least 100 years old, of course. It is hard to imagine living in a place with so much history, walking by these things every…

A day in Fussen

A day in Fussen

Share Sunday we traveled to the small town of Fussen, Germany to visit the Neuschwanstein Castle, which worked out great because all the shops in Bavaria are closed as it is a Catholic state. Some of us were also able to tour Hohenschangau Castle while we were there. These castles are a MUST SEE while…

Market shopping

Market shopping

Share As it started to sprinkle, I figured I should make my trip to the market quick if I wanted to get done before a downpour, so I headed in what I hoped would be the general direction of the famous market area of Munich, called Viktualienmarkt from the Latin word for food. As I…

Second Day in Berlin: Holocaust Memorial and McDonald’s

Second Day in Berlin: Holocaust Memorial and McDonald’s

Share When approaching from behind, the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe does not look impressive. Small slabs of concrete. Still. Emotionless. Then, you walk through it, down the slightly sloping passages until you are alone, surrounded on everyside by the suddenly massive structures. It comes on slowly. With virtually no markings or engravings,…
