I’ve been living in Deutschland for almost 7 months now. Never have I been this far from home for this long. And while I miss my people back in the States, I haven’t felt the first tugging of homesickness. My heart and soul belongs in Europe. From the dragon scale roof tiles, to the random … Continue reading Colmar, France
It’s been some time since Tristan and I have had the chance to travel. We’ve both been busy with work and school, but now that sixth grade is winding and the weather is trying to cooperate, we’ve been making plans. Spring in Deutschland has been a burst of rich, vivid greens littered with scarlet, pinks, … Continue reading Trier, Germany
Tristan and I have often simply pulled off to venture up to a castle ruin we see from the road. It’s easy to do here as they’re often scattered along in the towns and villages we pass. However, on our last pitstop, Tristan asked if we’d ever stop by a castle that was “whole.” He … Continue reading Castle Chronicles: Burg Rhinestein
This edition of “Little Things” is mixture of both positives and… less positives. Don’t misunderstand – I love living here (you know, in the whole four months that we’ve been here), but there are some things that I miss from home – as well as absolutely baffle me about Germany. While there are things that … Continue reading Little Things: Part Three
If I understand correctly, there are multiple Frankenstein castles. There is the ruin in the village of Frankenstein in Rhineland-Pfalz, and there is the castle in Hesse where the (from what I hear) amazing Halloween festival is held. We visited Burgruine Frankenstein, the castle ruins in the village of Frankenstein. Something I’ve noticed about the … Continue reading Castle Chronicles: Burgruine Frankenstein
And suddenly, in a few days, it will be three months since we made our journey. In these three months, I’ve begun working, found an amazing sitter for Tristan, explored a few castles, met some wonderfully welcoming co-workers, learned to drive the German roads, learned to move fast in the checkout line, eaten an insane … Continue reading Drei
Remember how I said there are over 20,000 castles and castle ruins just in Deutschland alone? They literally litter the landscape, popping up on hills and mountains seemingly from nowhere. Driving down the autobahn, you can see church steeples and castle towers. Almost every town, city, village has it’s own castle or castle ruin. It’s … Continue reading Castle Chronicles: Burg Nanstein & Heather Cliffs
Since getting my driver’s license, I’ve had many questions! Now, I’ve only had it for a short time, and have only driven to some familiar places, but I thought I would write a post about my experiences thus far, as well as some others’ that have been driving here for a longer time than I … Continue reading Fahrschule
It’s been almost a month since I’ve posted last – it’s been busy around here! I began working on the unit (I never knew how much I could miss patient care), and we moved into our house. There is still so much to do in order for us to be fully settled, but we’re over … Continue reading Castle Chronicles: Burg Neu-Wolfstein
It’s been a month since our big jump across the great blue pond. We experienced two weeks of quarantine, lots of binge watching great television, doggie walks, and lots of learning curves. My curls are a hot mess; my kid has yet to start school; and I’ve spent way too much money on brezeln and … Continue reading All in a Month
