A Castle on A Hill: Heidelberg Castle


One of the most beautiful places I visited in Germany was Heidelberg Castle. I would have to say this is one of my all time favorite castle ruins (and I’ve been to a ton).  Did you know that there are over 20,000 castles in Germany alone? (Yes, I said twenty thousand.) I know crazy! You can pretty much find a castle in every town you go into. 


Heidelberg Castle is a short 45 minute drive from where I will be living in Germany. It is absolutely massive and breathtakingly beautiful. To be able to enter the courtyard and various …

An Afternoon in Austria: Ehrenberg Castle and Highline 179

So amidst all the holiday content I wanted to share some pictures from a day trip Rene and I took in September.

These are all the only things you will have from the time …

A Day of Solo-Exploration in Frankfurt, Germany

It is a chilly September day here in Germany – I’m talking in the upper 50’s low 60’s. That’s basically freezing for this Florida gal. I am currently here to visit my boyfriend who recently had to move back due to visa issues. He works 3 days a week and I have to find ways to stay entertained – instead of sitting around I’ve chosen to do some solo-explorations and go off by my self. Yes, in the beginning it was a bit terrifying. First I had to brave the German public transportation system and some how make it from my boyfriends hometown (Pfungstadt, Germany) to Frankfurt.
