Esslingen The last time I graced this country with my presence (for more than a few nights) was in 2009. It was my first look at any country in Europe, and it was everything I hoped it would be. This time around, my hope is to see some places I missed in the first trip.
Woke up at 6 on my first day. Safe to say that I did not get enough sleep to catch up. I waited until about 8:30 and headed over to the U5 and went straight to the Römer/Dome area…
Going to keep it short. Our last few days were spent getting to know Dresden beyond the Altstadt. Including a day trip to Moritzburg… Our second last day in Dresden involved a day trip to Moritzburg, which is another suburb of Dresden. The residence here served as a hunting lodge for August the Strong (at … More Dresden: Phaetons and Moritzburg

Considering I spent more time in smaller towns in Germany, I had been accustomed to their flow. Meissen made for a great day trip from Dresden, where we had been staying for close to a week.
As we walked towards the old town, I peered over my shoulder at Grandma, who subsequently gave a goofy smile as she raised her hands over her shoulders. She was repeating the embarrassing walk that she put me through 3 years prior, in freaking Disneyland…
Every once and awhile, it’s okay to waste money on silly things to distract you for an afternoon.. I have previously written on Sachsenhausen, and this little excursion occurred the day after visiting the concentration camp. Maybe an attempt to “lighten the mood”. The weather wasn’t great though, so you could say the mood carried over … More Filmpark Babelsberg and a grumpy German
(Courtesy: Ferienwohnung Hachenberg) First time in Freiburg, and boy was I impressed! Despite ripping off the title of one of my favourite comedies, Freiburg really is one of the sunniest spots in Germany. If you wanted to live in a smaller city/town, Freiburg should be near the top of your list. It seems like a … More It’s Always Sunny in Freiburg
