Brad’s Le Tour de Normandy

Brad’s Le Tour de Normandy

Last weekend, Brad travelled to France to participate in a three day bike ride through Normandy. This wasn't just any bike ride though.  It was the Liberty Ride--400 cyclists from surrounding European countries riding to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the...

Mainz Christmas Market

Mainz Christmas Market

This year was our first visit to the Mainz Christmas Market. We have visited Mainz various times since moving to Eltville and love the energy that fills the city; it is both historic, yet modern. The Christmas Market proved to be no different. Set in the historic...

Wiesbaden Sternschnuppenmarkt

Wiesbaden Sternschnuppenmarkt

A visit to the Wiesbaden Twinkling Star Market has become a yearly tradition for our family. Nestled right in the heart of one of Europe's oldest spa cities, Wiesbaden, the Market is easy to love. It offers all of the things that are traditional of a German Christmas...

Rüdesheim Christmas Market

Rüdesheim Christmas Market

The Rüdesheim Christmas Market is one we go back to every year. It takes place in the heart of Rüdesheim am Rhein (on the Rhine), a quaint, wine producing German town that is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site. A visit to the Rhüdesheim Christmas Market allows for many...

Our Summer Trip to Austria

Our Summer Trip to Austria

When Brad and I chatted about where we wanted to vacation this summer, there was one place that we both agreed on--Austria. We had the opportunity to travel there last December and we absolutely fell in love with it. This trip, with summer in full bloom, had a beauty...

Nathan’s First Camping Trip

Nathan’s First Camping Trip

Camping is something that Brad and I have enjoyed doing throughout our almost 14 years of marriage. Now that we have Nathan, we have been waiting for the perfect time to introduce him to the great outdoors. This past summer seemed like that perfect time. So, we picked...

What We Did – When in Rome

What We Did – When in Rome

Our trip to Italy was quite an adventure. Note to travelers: It rains in October. We stayed dry in Rome, but the rest of our trip was quite a soggy mess. So much so, that we had to cancel a stop in Venice (they were in 5 extra feet of water!). Rome, the capital of...

Day Trip to Koln

Day Trip to Koln

On my birthday this year, Brad and I took a day trip to Koln (also known as Cologne). We headed out mid-morning and made the hour and half drive up from the Wiesbaden area. The day was dreary, but at least we were able to get in a few hours of sight seeing before the...

Brunch in Downtown Wiesbaden

Brunch in Downtown Wiesbaden

This morning we woke up and hit the pavement. We walked downtown to have brunch with some people from Brad's work and their spouses. The food was good and the company was even better. Brad and I both had an entree that included: 2 fried eggs, a few strips of bacon, a...

Auf Wiedersehen American Arms Hotel!

Auf Wiedersehen American Arms Hotel!

We are so thrilled that the new Army Lodge was made available so shortly after our arrival to the area. The official opening of the Wiesbaden Lodge has been long-awaited by many. The project, like many overseen by the government : ), has endured its share of glitches....
