You’ve Got Questions, I’ve Got Answers (FAQs – Round 2)

I honestly have no idea how time flies so quickly! I feel like I blink and another month has passed. Between work, German class, hanging out with friends, and celebrating Jerry turning into an old man, we haven’t had a lot of time to just chill. Fortunately on Sunday, we finally had some much need…

Playing Catch-Up

I just realized that I haven’t done a new post in over a month. Such. a. slacker. We have today off for “Christi Himmelfahrt” – or the start of Christs Ascension into heaven or something. I don’t really know (I should because I went to Catholic school for a thousand years but I don’t). All…

Observe and Report – Episode 3

I hope you all had a lovely Easter weekend! Today is my last day of freedom before starting my new jobby job and apparently I want to spend it blogging. I looked at my phone this weekend and realized that I had a bunch of random stuff that I wanted to share so here we go!…

Reality Check

Ever since we announced we were moving to Munich, we have been met with a lot of comments that generally fall within the realm of “I’m so jealous!” or “We’ve always wanted to do that!” (you totally can btw – I’ll probably blog more about that subject another time). And while, yes, we love living…

And In Recent News…

Well friends, I have some good news and bad news. The bad news is that due to the Lufthansa pilot strike, my flight to Rome this weekend was cancelled so I was not able to participate in the marathon and therefore will not be able to share with you a full race recap. I know….

Observe and Report – Episode 2

Happy Hump Day friends! It’s definitely been a busy couple of weeks! I enrolled in a couple of German classes – one of which is 4 hours/day everyday – and I’m really hoping doing this puts me on a path to fluency or at least to know enough to be able to work in a pub or biergarten (gotta dream big right?). I…

A Brief Word on Fasching

I was hoping Jer would be able to write a post about Fasching – aka Carnival – because it had been going on since we arrived in Munich. But the man works and I don’t so you’re stuck with me for now. Fasching – as its called in Bavaria, Austria and a few other places in…

Observe and Report – Episode 1

Now that the first week of living here is officially complete (for me – Jerry’s been here for a million years), I thought I would do a series of general observations — about life here, about funny things I’ve seen, etc. As there will be several in this series, here is “Episode 1.” Recycling is…

Taking Your Animal to Europe – Dos and Don’ts

I cannot tell you how many people asked if I was taking the fat cat with me to Munich and were shocked that I said yes. I guess it’s fairly common to give up your pets when you move?? For me, it was never optional. Could you leave this face behind?? I couldn’t. In case…

Willkommen in München!

The fat cat and I have officially made it to München! I woke up about an hour ago after getting about 12 hours of some much needed sleep. Before you judge, I’m entirely positive that I’ve never been so tired in my life as I was these past few weeks. With all the final packing…

Eisstockschießen (aka Adventures with Bavarian Curling)

*Every so often Jerry will regale us with tales of living in Munich in (mostly) his own words. Enjoy!* As Steph mentioned in the last post, I started my job a few weeks ago and so far, I love it. It’s such a great company and I really enjoy working with my team. One of…

Not So Bumpy After All…

So…I was wrong. I’m willing to admit it. I definitely blogged way too soon about our potential setback with the foreigners office being closed on January 2 (see the previous post here). We were both very frustrated that weekend for all the reasons I previously stated but turns out, we really had no need to…
