Starkbierfest

Hey everyone!

geheimnisse_mass_1

Since I have been talking about Starkbierfest (Nockherberg) for so long (I mean a week now). I have decided to make a very brief blog post dedicated to starkbierfest. I hope you saw my wonderful sarcastic video and if you haven’t you need to CLICK HERE

Munich (Bavaria actually but I will keep to Munich because I have a little more knowledge about Munich) is full of bierfests. I feel like the only things you can always be certain for in Munich are late s-bahns, changing weather, and bierfests.

The whole idea of beerfests is something so welcoming for me. The idea to drink, eat, socialize, and dance is something that really makes my heart happy. All over Munich and throughout the year there are many different types of bierfests. Whether it be Wiesn (Oktoberfest), Frühlingsfests, Starkbierfests, Waldfests, Sommerfests, etc etc. The supply of beerfests in Munich is ENOUGH and there will usually be one no matter what time of the year you show up.

I have been to Starkbierfest every year since I have been in Munich. I think for me it’s a tradition now. Plus it keeps me happy during these cold depressing winter months. Hopefully I will have a vlog up and running for you guys showcasing my time at Starkbierfest by next Sunday (I won’t make any promises). If you are in Munich and you are looking for something to do this weekend… Starkbierfest is here!

I wish you guys so much fun and lots of warm weather *hopefully* (I mean as warm as March in Munich can be).

Berchtesgaden… again

Hey everyone! 

28500564_639251916407496_373520023_o

 

I am so behind on blogging (as always) but I am trying to focus on Youtube a little bit and be able to make more videos. With that being said and getting it out of the way…. Mike and I went on one of our wonderful ausfluge- about a week or two ago. We ended up in route to Salzburg but decided to make a detour at Königssee and Berchtesgaden (Rossfeldpanoramastrasse). I have mentioned many many times that Berchtesgaden is BEAUTIFUL… and the definition of PERFECTION but what I have never mentioned is the fact that Königssee is one of the most breathtaking places in all of Bavaria/Germany.

It’s very hard for me to enjoy anything in Germany right now because the weather is really horrible. The temperature is painful for me and it just doesn’t bring the mood up but I have been trying my best to stay positive and push through. After our short *entertaining boat ride on Königssee (the captain played a little song on the trumpet…hopefully it was a trumpet and told us a wonderful story about the history that has to do with Bavaria/Königssee and so much more).

Afterwards we headed to Rossfeld and watched the sunset (Mike watched, I sat in the car sulking at the -11 degrees) and afterwards made our way to Salzburg to eat some of the best braised ribs I have ever had in my life.

 

Thank you so very much & lots of love from me to you!

Shooting in America

As I sit in Starbucks (this is the only place with good internet) waiting for my next vlog to be uploaded I decided to make a blog post about what is about to be uploaded.

As most of y’all know, I am not the biggest gun fan in the world… and I have spoken about the wonderful “gun” problem we have in the USA… Gun problem/as*hole problem whatever you want to call it… I think too many people die a day in the USA due to guns. In the USA one of the biggest industries is the firearm industry. The amount of money spent on guns/maintenance is astonishing to me.

Mike decided he wanted to go shooting (shooting in Germany is not as easily accessible as it is in the USA) and we went to an indoor shooting range… It was seriously top of the line (in my opinion). If you are in the Lee county area of Florida (Fort Myers/Cape Coral or Naples) it’s a cool experience, if you’ve never shot a gun before… Mike wasn’t the only German there 😉 I will link it HERE
26981585_615749588757729_1941441578_oAfter just filling out the paperwork and giving our ID’s to the people we were allowed to let loose. We shot semi auto & automatic (well I didn’t shoot the automatic because it was too loud for me) Mike was in love!! He said that it was an awesome experience. In my opinion it’s better to shoot guns in a controlled “safe” environment with people around you that can help and know what they are doing.

SOOOO did I do good?

Not really -_- I am usually a better shot but this was my first time shooting at a range and the amount of noise/shots going off from every direction scared me. Mike, my brother and mom did awesome but maybe next time I will prove myself :p

 

Love Always,

Disney World

Good Morning/Evening/Afternoon

So I ended up at Disney last weekend. It was a family trip (a family friend’s daughter celebrated her birthday) and I spent 2 magical days at Magic Kingdom and Hollywood Studios. It has been a few years since my last Disney trip and let me tell you….Magic Kingdom was PACKED. I have seriously never seen so many people in an amusement park before.

I have been to Disney more times than I can count and I do not remember it being so crowded… Hour long lines just to meet Jasmine :p Unfortunately I did not get any pictures with Mickey but it was still beautiful and worth it. The weather (aside from not packing a proper jacket) was beautiful and there were seriously not that many clouds in the sky…. The sun was shining like a diamond!

I am so happy that I was able to go back to Disney and relive my childhood and I am so thankful my mom made it all possible 😉 … Sometimes it’s really good for you to be a kid again 😀 I hope it’s not freezing in Germany anymore! I promise I am sending a bunch of  sun!!! *If you are planning a Florida/Disney trip anytime soon please be sure to do everything in advance* There are certain rides/restaurants that are sold out for reservations and fast passes for at least a year -_-

Florida 2018

Hey y’all! 

26610485_608797096119645_1113444330_o.jpg

I am a little behind with everything but I have finally gotten settled in and have time to do my social media stuff. Florida is awesome y’all (right now there is a “cold front” and we can’t really go to the beach) but we are still enjoying our time. I have been eating too much… As was expected but I hope to start working out sometime this week. Tonight I am going shooting and will kick everyones butt in target practice.

I spent the first couple of days in Naples with a wonderful 23 degrees and clear skies….It’s currently season in Florida so there are a bunch of Germans here and people from up north. I feel like I’m back in Munich with sunshine :p

 

Love y’all ❤

I have arrived

Hey everyone,

I have made it to Florida!!! It was one of the longest travel times of my life but that is ok. I don’t know what happened when I booked the flight (I could have sworn I picked the flight with only 1 layover NOT 2) BUT for every negative there is a positive. Even though I ended up with an 18 hour travel time from Munich to Florida, I was upgraded by Icelandair (I could sleep, recline, and actually eat..If you don’t know… Icelandair usually does not offer food on their flights for economy). Thumbs up for Icelandair.

Since i have arrived safely in Florida… I will spend some time with my grandma then go to my mothers for Christmas and eat my heart out.

I wish you all a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!!

Heres a picture with me and my new best friend :p
