Explore Germany: Neuschwanstein Castle


AH! Germany! Literally cannot wait until we get to go back and explore more of it! As soon as I found out we were headed to Garmisch I was excited for a lot of things - but I counted down the days until we could go see the famous Neuschwanstein Castle. I did a lot of research online to make sure we were actually able to see and do everything we wanted to! We purchased our tickets online a few days ... Read the Post

Explore Germany: Hike to the WWII Memorial


Whenever we travel I like to do a little bit of research on not only the best places to see and where to eat; but the history on what has happened in these beautiful towns.

We stayed at the Edeilweiss Resort and purchased our tickets through them and drove about 10 minutes away to ... Read the Post

We went with some good friends and met new friends & had a blast. ... Read the Post

Explore Italy: A quick trip to Verona


Verona is just 45 minutes from our front door, so with a free afternoon we decided to go explore and start putting our To-Do list together. With so much history in Italy, I feel like we need to visit every city a few times to be able to see everything, so sometimes it's nice to go check it out and explore and make a list (Can you tell I'm Type A?) of what to see and do and then get to researching. ...
