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

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

BYE BYE GERMANY

AND I’M OFF

So I feel like I tend to write this often and tend to say bye bye to Germany…..OFTEN but this time I am actually leaving (not getting attacked by monkeys) and I won’t be back for awhile. I need to get out of Germany for some very much needed family time and vacation time. The snow/cold/grey can really bring someones mood down. Vitamin D is calling.

As most of y’all know, I am going back home to visit my family and friends. I haven’t been home for Christmas since 2014…It’s time y’all!  I am really excited about the amount of food I will be eating, the fun trips I will be taking, the beach/sun, and the videos that I (z.b. Mike) will be producing. I am hoping to make at least 1 vlog a week and a major “impression” video that highlights my whole trip. We shall see. I am also bringing German snacks and words with me from across the pond to try and trick my friends and family :p

I know being somewhere that doesn’t snow for Christmas seems a little strange for a lot of my German viewers BUT let me tell you….. It’s strange for me to celebrate with snow :p  I am currently on my long (I don’t know what I was thinking when I booked this flight) 18 hour flight home (MUC-RKV-JFK-MCO). Wish me luck you guys and be prepared to see some sunshine on my blog soon!

Neuschwanstein

24879163_594511347548220_1182393259_o

Hey everyone,

Mike and I (mostly me), decided it would be an awesome idea to go to Neuschwanstein. I have been trying to make more “travel/interactive” videos…..which require me to actually leave the house and brave the outside world. We looked up the weather and saw it was actually going to be decent outside…So I thought to myself  it would be nice to finally start my Neuschwanstein video. Now there are so many things I have to say about Neuschwanstein and hopefully this blogpost won’t turn into a rant (please lord let it not be a rant).

I have been at least 5 times to Neuschwanstein….I live in Munich and have been living here for almost 3 years…..Why not go…It’s only an hour+ away?

It was extremely cold this time. This was seriously the coldest I have been in my life…Even with my down jacket, my beanie, my sweater, pullover and etc etc. I was still freezing my assoff…. I could seriously feel my soul turning into an even bigger ice cube than it already is (if you plan on going to Neuschwanstein from November-March/April DRESS WARM). I do have to say that the snow made it a little more magical though :p

There were too many damn people! Y’all! I am not over exaggerating but there were seriously SO MANY PEOPLE. Everywhere I turned……a selfie was being taken, people were talking too loud…People were touching things that weren’t supposed to be touched etc etc. It was just really crowded and sortuve made me feel like a sardine in a can.

Baustelle (construction). There seems to always be construction at this dang castle…If its not the bridge being closed, it’s the whole front of the castle being wrapped in plastic and metal. I mean the castle is still beautiful BUT the whole metal bars and ugly yellow signs just take away some of the beauty.

If you are in the Munich/Bayern area and you are thinking about going to Neuschwanstein….DON’T DO IT. I say this after going many different times and experiencing it during many different seasons. Neuschwanstein MAY be the “Disney” castle BUT it’s not worth the money in my opinion. The castle has too much of a “hype” around it and I seriously find it to be a tourist trap. I would recommend going to the little sister castle which is called Linderhof. SO MUCH MORE BANG FOR YOUR BUCK! Plus…The tour isn’t as crap as the one at Neuschwanstein. :p

SO EXCITED

Today is Thanksgiving (I have no idea when I will post this but hopefully it won’t take forever) and I have actually spent the day throwing up and other things. I ate something bad and I am just miserable. The reason I am writing this blog however is not to tell you about me being sick but to let you know that in less than a month I will be in Florida.

It’s been so long since I have visited home and since the whole South East Asia/Australia trip got pushed back, I decided to take a little break from the world and go home. It has been a year and a half since I have been back and boy do I miss it.

I realized that living in Germany has changed me in so many ways and the weather has made me have thicker skin when it comes to the “cold”. I will be one of those people in December swimming in the ocean….Because 70 degrees is HOT.

I am VERY excited about vlogging and showing y’all my family again but this time in depth 😀 I will be spending a lot of time 2+ months at home and I feel I have so much to tell my friends and family about Germany and most of all show you guys!

 

Sorry if this blog is all over the place BUT I AM SO EXCITED AND CANT WAIT!

 

Love always,

Hayley ❤
