Choose Your Own (Fairytale) Adventure

October 27, 2011


I am quite a happy little lady this week. I’m feeling on top of the world, which is in fact somewhat like where I found this little ladybug. I’m living a fairytale. That is if fairytale princesses wore backpacks instead of ball gowns. If fairytale princesses stopped cleaning stepmothers’ houses and stopped ever feeling quite […]

Can You Hear Me Now? Good.

October 25, 2011


I know. Three days almost went by. The journey from Brussels to Munich was, if painless and way better than the Oregon Trail, exhausting. I went to bed Saturday night beat. Munich is gorgeous. Simply beautiful. Unfortunately, I was tired cranky during my Sunday walking tour, and it was cold, so you have to take […]

Sometimes clouds are the best. Also, we just so happen to be in Berlin for the start of the Festival of Lights… Everything is great. Scenery and Skies … And the sillies. These kids walked by us in two lines, wearing boots and hazard vests… Adorable. Erin hates scaffolding with a passion. Erin: “All that […]

The Berlin Series: The Wall

October 14, 2011


I was two months old when the Berlin Wall fell. It was really odd to realize I was standing next to the remnants of it, in a few spots around Berlin. Most pictures were taken at the East Side Gallery on Thursday, October 13.

The Berlin Series: The Jewish Museum and the Holocaust Memorial

October 14, 2011


All Erin and I have done in Berlin is walked… Long and far, and often incorrect, ways. It leads to great pictures and stories. As you walk down these streets, you don’t have to enter a museum to see history, and it’s true all over Europe. Here are just a few snapshots of what’s been […]
