  • Mainz, Germany- Christmas market






    Something that I have wanted to do for over the past decade was to experience a true German Christmas market. I have seen other cultures’ takes on the German tradition but I knew it wouldn’t be the same as seeing a true German market during the holidays. Finally, I was able to secure a trip(…)

  • Mainz- Without a Wallet






    I opened up my bag to get ready after a long flight to Mainz, Germany and my heart sank. I had forgotten to move my wallet from my purse, which I don’t carry when I travel, to my flight bag. I have a few bags with various currencies that I keep in my suitcase, so I(…)

  • Travel Tips – Daylight Savings
