Munich Guide: Pasing

It occurred to me the other day that I’ve been so focused on experiencing (and sharing) Munich city center, that I haven’t talked much about our little neck of the woods – Munich, Pasing! Pasing is a district in west Munich and feels like a city of its own (because it originally was). It has […]

A Week of Happies (no crappies!)

Sorry for the language, but 2020 is a sh*t show. I mean, now Kayne is running for President? I just can’t. And Shane’s job? It was supposed to start in May and now we’re looking at September (more on that in a later post). Thanks, Corona! My sister and soon-to-be brother-in-law taught us a game: […]

Munich Guide: Olympia Park

Our trip to Olympia Park was an accident. Ok, kind of. I mean it was on ‘the list’ and we did intentionally bike there, but our original plan was to go swimming in the Isar river. That plan was foiled once we looked at the radar. So instead, we decided to check out Olympia Park, […]

Hello, Munich!

Tot ziens, Holland. Willkommen in Deutschland! We did it, we made it to Munich! Before I start, I wanted to take a moment to acknowledge current world events – specifically the Black Lives Matter protests happening in America right now. As an American living abroad for the foreseeable future, to be honest, I feel a […]

48 Hours in Munich, Germany

I don’t know about you guys, but I need a mental break from the coronavirus news. We’re not on full lockdown here in the Netherlands, but bars, restaurants, and gyms are closed, public transportation has been reduced, and people are encouraged to work from home. Long story short, it’s all anyone can talk about. So, […]
