Living in Germany
Travel That Fits Your Budget
Day Trips, Weekend Trips, Tips and Advice
Germany holds a special place in my heart. It is my second home, because we have lived in this country off and on for a total of 15 years. We were married here; we had our two daughters here. It’s part of us.
With all the beautiful towns, castles, fortresses, rivers, fun activities for all ages, and great food, you will love it, too. I really hope that if you are considering a trip to Europe you plan to see some of Germany. You won’t regret it.
