2012 Travels in Review – a Truly Crazy Ride!

2012 Travels in Review – a Truly Crazy Ride!

So much happened in 2012, that I get overwhelmed trying to remember it all. So, Jared and I thought we’d go through our photos and make a small monthly collage of our life happenings…but that proved to be even more overwhelming! How do you sum up so much in only 5 monthly photos? 2012 was by-far the most amazing year of our lives. We experienced so many new places and cultures, as well as learned and grew...

Flying Qatar Airways to Thailand

Flying Qatar Airways to Thailand

Our flight out of Frankfurt, Germany was at 10pm. This allowed us to pack up, clean up our Aunt/Uncle’s apartment that they had let us use, and have a more relaxing exit to the airport. A friend recently told us how her family loves to arrive at the airport very early and relax, so as to avoid the stresses of last-minute check-in, etc. We took that to mind (since we are usually literally the last ones to...

This year we’re spending our holiday eating traditional American Thanksgiving foods among...

Our first day in Austria was very wet—a perfect day to be underground! We took off for the Salt Mine Tour...

Ludwigsburg Pumpkin Festival

Ludwigsburg Pumpkin Festival

When we found out that the Ludwigsburg Palace has an annual pumpkin festival, how could we possibly resist?! The festival boasts that it is the world’s largest pumpkin festival, with 400,000 pumpkins and over 450 varieties on display. Each year they pick a theme—last year it was dinosaurs (which looked awesome), and this year it was Switzerland (kind of weird). I imagine it’s easy to build displays when...

Medieval Festival in Rothenburg, Germany

Medieval Festival in Rothenburg, Germany

After learning that there was a Medieval Festival in Rothenburg the day after we visited, we couldn’t help but rearrange our plans to return for the festivities! It was another beautiful day, with clear blue skies and a perfect temperature, to boot. The festival is technically called “Imperial City Days”, and started in 1974, when they celebrated the 700 year anniversary of achieving imperial status....
