Punctuality: Panic at the Terminal by Daniel

Before I begin my soliloquy, let’s set the mood with the following definitions of punctuality, as explained by myself and my lovely wife. Definition per Jenny: The act of being present directly prior to departure or an event starting. May or may not include airport shopping, applying mascara or grabbing a last minute coffee as […]

Denmark, A Journey of Love: iPhone edition

We started our trip with a 3:30 am wake up call. (Thankfully I finished packing our stuff around midnight so we got a few hours of rest.) We took the ICE train to Köln and walked around a little bit. We ended up going to the airport early because our backpacks were pretty heavy and […]

I’ll Pack light… and other lies I tell myself.

Whewwww… It seems like every time we plan a trip I tell myself I’ll be ahead on the laundry and I’ll pack a few days before we leave. Guess how many times that has actually happened… <NEVER>. It sounds like the perfect solution to my never ending packing catastrophes but in reality we are too […]

Europa Park: You’re Never too old for Amusement Parks.

We started the day with giant cappuccinos and a crash course of teaching Krissy how to drive a manual car. Surprisingly we all made it to Europa Park in one piece and she never stalled the car! If you’ve ever traveled in Europe, you’ll notice that almost all of the cars you rent have manual […]

Burg Lichtenberg: The not so dirty Thirty!

Krissy moved here last year and quickly became one of my closest friends (and neighbors) in Germany. We were delighted to help her […]

America Land of the Free: Washington DC

It has been said in a million different ways that the United States is a land of opportunity. A land of freedom and bravery. A land of dreams. I feel so incredibly blessed to have been born in such a country. A country that gives us the opportunity to work hard to achieve our dreams. […]

Philly, Family and Delicious Cheesesteaks

It started with an impromptu first class seat from Chicago, IL to Philadelphia, PA. I decided to run to the restroom prior to catching our flight. In my absence my fiancé Dan volunteered us for what he thought were exit row seats. Surprisingly, as we boarded the plane we realized the flight attendant bumped us […]

Let it Snow. Zugspitze: Garmish-Partenkirchen, Germany

Shredding. I use this word because Dan is an everyday comedian. We went to the local sports store to rent his ski gear for a weekend in Garmish. He used this word excessively with the rental guy. So much so the guy couldn’t help but laugh at him. [Lets just set the record straight… I was […]
