Visiting The Kuchlbauer Tower and Brewery in Bavaria

Art and beer, beer and art. These two things don’t necessarily go together, but in Abensberg, a small town not far from Regensberg, in Bavaria there is a brewery and beer garden where it’s all about the art. It boasts a magical tower that will have the kids of all ages gaping and smiling. Jim and I heard about this unusual combination, and couldn’t wait to go. Honestly, it doesn’t take much to convince us to visit a brewery anyway, but with a little whimsy, you just can’t keep us away, and one thing that the Kuchlbauer Tower promises is whimsy! Am I Dreaming? The Kuchlbauer Brewery and Hundertwasserturm Experience The Kuchlbauer Brewery, brewing wheat beer or weizenbier, a wheat …

Best Places To Visit Europe In Winter

Traveling in Europe is amazing all year round. Since we began living in Germany, we have been able to check out the best Europe has to offer in winter, and it has become one of our favorite seasons to travel.  When choosing a place to go in winter, first you have to decide what you want to do while on vacation. I like to experience snow, skiing, sledding, hot chocolate, fondue, wintery things…usually. I have to admit after a string of German gray days with no snow, I’m also ready to escape the cold and go somewhere warm, but there are not many places that are truly warm in Europe in winter. You usually have to go much further away …

Durian – Stinky Fruit or a Must-have Delicacy?

Durian the Stinky Fruit

As you know, we love trying new foods everywhere we go.  It is surprising how differently taste develops around the world. Whenever I travel I make a list of foods that are popular in that place, and to be honest I find that sometimes I am not a fan. However, and sometimes even more surprisingly, I find something I like that I would have never tried otherwise.  In many parts of Asia, especially Singapore and Malaysia, one must-try fruit is the stinky durian. It was so high on my list that I didn’t even sleep once I landed, I headed straight for the Chinatown market.

Society has always dictated that we should gain a good education, develop a strong career and then purchase a house, have children and grow old …

A Perfect Day Trip To San Marino And Its Castle

Sunset view from San Marino, castle and fortifications walls

One thing we knew for sure when we were planning our summer road trip in Italy, was that we had to spend at least one day in San Marino. The tiny, “Most Serene Republic of San Marino,” is on the border of the Italian provinces of Emilia Romagna and Marche and is not too far off the track driving between Bologna and Tuscany. San Marino is one of the oldest republics in the world, established in 301 AD, and has remained largely unchanged throughout its history making it a natural UNESCO World Heritage Site. From its origins as a small refugee community atop Mount Titano, San Marino grew to the present day micro-state consisting of the towns of Fiorentino, Montegiardino, …
