Destin Florida May 2020

As soon as the farm got a big rain and Florida reopened their beaches and restaurants, we were outta here! Even though it was just a quick 4 day trip, it was a much needed break from being cooped up in the house for 2 months! Especially with our travel obsessed family! Several years agoContinue reading “Destin Florida May 2020”

Walt Disney World February 2020

Considering we’ve been confined to our homes for over a week now due to COVID-19 and social distancing you would think I would be caught up on my travel posts by now, but I am not, of course. This is the last post in our winter travel adventures though so I wasn’t too far behind!Continue reading “Walt Disney World February 2020”

Disneyland Paris

It’s no secret that we are huge Disney fans. We visit Walt Disney World 5+ times a year and enjoy every second of it! So one would think that it would be a no brainer for us to visit Disneyland Paris while in town, but that was not our plan! We only had 5 daysContinue reading “Disneyland Paris”

Paris France January 2020

If you have a fantasy like dream of visiting Paris sipping espresso and eating macaroons beneath the Eiffel Tower in a picturesque setting then I advise you to stop reading now. I too had romanticized Paris. I took French throughout school as my foreign language and was smitten with it. When cheap flights to ParisContinue reading “Paris France January 2020”

Getting Around Germany by Train

Germany has an amazingly efficient and expansive country-wide rail system. You can go basically anywhere in the country quickly and cost effectively. Your public transportation options include high speed ICE trains, regional trains, S-bahn, U-bahn, Trolley/Street cars, and city buses. Germany also has long distance buses but they are not as efficient as train travelContinue reading “Getting Around Germany by Train”

Munich Germany December 2019

We arrived in Munich on December 26 to find that the city was all but shut down. Apparently this is called the second day of Christmas and is still celebrated as a national holiday just like Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Who knew? We had planned on visiting some of the museums and monuments inContinue reading “Munich Germany December 2019”

Nuremberg Germany December 2019

Nuremberg is a cute town right in the heart of Germany. Probably most famous now for it Nazi history and the home of the post-WW2 Nuremberg trials. We chose Nuremburg as our location to spend Christmas because it’s also world famous for its huge Christmas market! Spread out all across the city center is aContinue reading “Nuremberg Germany December 2019”

Köln Germany December 2019

After our leisurely train ride from Berlin we made it to Köln around noon. Köln has really easy to use public transport, but we had accumulated so much stuff in Berlin we were over loaded with bags and decided to just take a taxi to our apartment. We had a really amazing airbnb apartment inContinue reading “Köln Germany December 2019”

Berlin, Germany December 2019

After a whirlwind of a process trying to get to Germany we finally touched down in Berlin at 11:30pm on a Tuesday night in mid December. Berlin has an awesome public transportation system, but Tegel airport is pretty far out of the city center. For our family of 6 with 4 of those being 4Continue reading “Berlin, Germany December 2019”

9 Hour Layover in Lisbon, Portugal

Our 2 week trip through Germany started out rough. Very rough to be exact. Our first flight was 2 hours late which caused us to miss our connecting flight which caused a 24 hour delay in all our plans. Thankfully we were able to sip some sweet lemonade from those lemons and ended up gettingContinue reading “9 Hour Layover in Lisbon, Portugal”
