Photo Diary: Lunch In Heidelberg

Rewinding back on a quick lunch stop in Heidelberg as Lukas drove us on a 6-hour car ride from our castle in Aerzen to Munich! In rainy weather with a pretty bad rental car experience, he was a real trooper. I was really the luckier one in this situation! We got a slice of no rain for a late lunch in Heidelberg and spent a short time walking through the center before getting back on…

Photo Diary: Old Hameln, Germany

Hello, Hameln! Lukas drove us a couple hours out of Hamburg to the small town of Hameln which is right on Germany’s Fairy-tale route. It has been a town since the 12th century and is most known for the famous medieval tale The Pied Piper of Hameln. L and I were staying in a nearby castle, Schlosshotel Münchhausen, and we spent a couple days exploring Hameln’s tiny old town. We love day trips to these…

Fairytale Living: Schlosshotel Münchhausen

Let me just say I’m not this well trained at living in castles. I’ve seen quite a few and stepped inside but sleeping in them? Having afternoon tea in the Knights Hall every day? Let’s just say it’s not always on my agenda (though it really should be). That did change for four spectacular days as Lukas and I traveled to Germany’s countryside and lived like royalty. It’s an adventure right on the property! And there…

Photo Diary: Hamburg On The Water

First time out on the water this year! Aside from the ferry trips, of course. The weather just warmed up enough in Hamburg where we felt comfortable going out on the Alster River in some smaller boats, pedal boats to be exact. We rented one for a few hours and spent the afternoon together. This post was sitting in my drafts and are from a couple weeks ago, right before I returned back to Boston…

Day Trip: Bremen, Germany

Yay for weekend dates! L and I have been filling up our weekends away and we went to Bremen a couple weeks ago. He said it was a strange city but worth seeing for a day so we hopped on a train and on our way we went. Out of our small town adventures so far, (Luneburg, Lubeck, and now Bremen), and I do think Bremen is the strangest. It has a unique vibe set…

Photo Diary: Lübeck

Recently Lukas and I ran off to Lübeck, a small city about an hour outside of Hamburg. An unusual city and the first where I was greeted with such a prominent gate. Lübeck is a UNESCO World Heritage Site with its gorgeous gothic architecture and its old town is really darling. Lukas has three days off a week and we’ve been making an effort to visit many places just outside the city as little day…

Photo Diary: Lüneburg, Germany

Lukas and I took a short train ride outside of Hamburg for a daytime date. 45 minutes away to explore the town of Lüneburg in northern Germany. It’s one of those picturesque towns in Germany that makes you feel you stepped onto a film set! Or placed yourself in the middle of a snow globe, sans snow. Founded in 956 (yes, that’s right. the year 956), the town was most popular and wealthy in Middle…
