Thanksgiving, Friendship+Skiing the Alps

I met Erin in 2012 while we were learning all about ARDS, CKD, MODS, sepsis, “The Sugas” and may other intensive care things we were cramming into our brains at the time. She was the quiet, (almost) front row sitter and I was the notorious back row sitter that talked far too much. #somethingsneverchange A […]

Amsterdam, Netherlands: Windmills, Waffles+Rainy Days

After an 8 hour layover in Germany, we finally made it to Amsterdam. We grabbed the rental agreement and headed to pick up the car. I told the guy we rented a convertible and he looked extremely dismayed. Then I laughed. He said “whewwww you were kidding,” and laughed with me. Apparently the lady at […]

First Impressions: Lisbon, Portugal

As I’m sitting here drinking a breakfast beer, I’m reflecting on how much this new place has changed my perspective. First of all, #prost because this beer is DELICIOUS. Sagres Bohemia is absolutely my favorite amber beer I’ve EVER tried. Second of all…my plane leaves in 40 minutes and I have no idea which gate […]

Ireland: The Ring of Kerry

Raise your hand if you’re habitually late to everything in life (except work)….. you are the ones that understand my struggles. However, I want to preface this story by saying this time…it was not my fault. I was working night shift the day before we were supposed to leave for Ireland. My hilarious, beautiful and […]

Birthdays and Princess Castles: Neuschwanstein

I’ve wanted to visit the Neuschwanstein Castle since I first moved to Germany. It reminded me of all the princess castles we watched in movies growing up. It looked so perfect in photographs and I wanted so badly for it to be that beautiful in person. Unfortunately, King Ludwig II died before it was completely […]

Mallorca: Piña Coladas and Cliff Diving

Mallorca, Spain is one of the Balearic Islands located right next to our favorite one (Ibiza)! We went to Mallorca, Spain for Labor day weekend in 2015. I can’t believe I haven’t blogged about it. This one is gonna be just pictures… because I can 🙂 Enjoy.         Wishing for sunshine today, […]

Norway: Let’s Go Chasing Waterfalls

Our Norway trip started with a bang by almost missing our flight from Copenhagen, Denmark to Bergen, Norway. I’ll admit it… It was definitely my fault🙋. I was buying postcards for our families and didn’t realize they started boarding our flight. I arrived at the terminal and we quickly took off. A short flight later, we […]

Denmark, A Journey of Love: Marriage

Living in Europe has it’s perks and choosing the perfect spot to say our vows was difficult to say the least. We fell in love in Ibiza, Spain and decided that our little piece of paradise was perfect. It was only missing one thing, we had to be Roman Catholic to officially get married there. […]

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 […]

Burg Lichtenberg: The not so dirty Thirty!

As each year passes we get the opportunity to celebrate life. If you’re going to live in Europe you might as well celebrate your birthday in a castle, like a true princess! Krissy moved here last year and quickly became one of my closest friends (and neighbors) in Germany. We were delighted to help her […]
