Capture the Color: My 2013 Travel Photos

I don't need a reason to go through my travel photos every once in a while: I love images, and I always love a little trip down memory lane. So when Alex, my favorite Texan expat in Germany, tagged me to be a part in this year's Capture the Color Photo Contest, I was excited to go through my photos once more. In this contest, participants choose one photo for each primary color. I however, chose a few more photos to mirror my favorite destinations of 2013 thus  far (although I violate the contest's rules) -- each destination, depicted in [...]

A Taste of Belgium

I already admitted that I'm not (yet) a foodie. Okay, so I might have turned into a part time foodie throughout the last months, but I'm about to destroy this reputation with the revelation of my dirty little foodie secret: I love French fries! To be exact: French fries are my favorite food. Seriously. In my perception of the world, fries cure headaches and hangovers.

Photo Essay: Medieval Bruges

If I look back on the cities I traveled to this year, I'm surprised how I managed to stick to my (unintended) theme of gorgeous cities with canals and a medieval center -- Nuremberg, Strasbourg, Colmar, and even Paris are all places with an exciting medieval history and I adored visiting all of them. Although I probably described their outer features very much alike, for me, they was totally different: Nuremberg's medieval history was overshadowed by anti-Semitism, Strasbourg and Colmar have always had a special geographical position due to their location right in-between France and Germany. I don't know when [...]

A Birthday in Bruges

I think I'm a little weird when it comes to birthdays. Usually, I try not to care about my birthday and I rarely plan anything, sometimes even trying to pretty much ignore the date. In the past, I would rather take an extra shift at my part time job in a clothing store than throw a huge birthday party. Somehow, birthday parties never really worked out the way I planned them and so I stopped doing something special, because I think I'm just too afraid to be disappointed. Instead of throwing a party, lately I developed a habit of "not [...]
