Walking in Germany

Good evening everyone!

Since living in Germany I have done 2 things….Gained weight and learned to walk. Granted I knew how to walk in the USA but it’s just not as common as in Germany. They have the whole “spaziergang” thing down to a T. I know you would think if I walk so much more nowadays, I shouldn’t be gaining weight….Have you ever heard of German bread? It’s the devil’s best friend.

This post isn’t necessarily about my weight gain, it’s about WALKING and how nice it is. I am able to experience Germany in a different way. Walking the streets of somewhere is half the fun. Anyone can drive a car, park it and arrive at the destination but I have learned that the journey is what makes everything so magical. I think I realize now one of the main reasons I fell in love with Munich (don’t get me wrong, there are millions) was due the fact that I discovered this city all by myself by foot. I have discovered treasures that I would never be able to discover if I did not WALK.

If you are in Germany and you are able to walk from point a to point b…PLEASE DO SO. Not only is it the healthier option, it is the most scenic 😀




Hello Everyone!

Let me start off by saying….I KNOW. I am so behind in my blogging BUT I promise..I PROMISE in the near future it will get a lot better.

Mike and I are that couple that drive 2+ hours on the weekend to look at rocks. I mean who doesn’t like really high altitudes with amazing views? Basically Berchtesgaden (spelling) is a city or area or…. place in Bavaria. Everyone travels there because it was a vacation hot spot for Hitler and the “Eagles Nest” is nestled not too far away.

Doing a little research on the Eagles Nest and Berchtesgaden and making a day trip out of this would be a good idea on your part (JUST SAYING). I mean Mike and I were extremely “Spät dran” because of traffic and missed out on EVERYTHING but we still made the best of the situation and got awesome photos and videos 😀



Love y’all ❤



Cheap Train Tickets Through Bayern

Hey you guys!

I have been traveling with the “trains” for quite some time here in Munich. You would think I know all the tricks… BUT, I still seem to surprise myself. Well I don’t surprise myself, the Deutsche Bahn seems to surprise me.

Basically, if you are coming to Munich/Bayern as a group (up to 5 people) anytime soon, and looking for a cheap way to travel I would recommend getting the Bayern-Ticket. Not only is it cheap, you can order it months beforehand and you can also get it at any DB ticket automat.

The ticket lets you travel throughout Bayern for the day for DIRT CHEAP. I mean….REALLY cheap. I bought the ticket once with 4 other girls and we took a trip to Salzburg (near Bavaria) and it cost 50 euros there and back for all 5 of us. Granted we could not take the ICE and had to take the regional trains BUT STILL 50euros for a round trip to another country is a great deal. There are so many places that are accessible with this ticket and so many places that you could visit. If you are thinking about traveling to Bavaria and wanting to visit many destinations/make multiple stops the Bayern ticket is one of your best bets. PLUS the views are amazing.

This table just shows the amount of people traveling (anzahl Reisende) and the difference between price and class (2. Klasse = Economy, 1. Klasse = First class, Nacht = evening train rides).

I hope you will have so much fun and wish you so much luck on your journey through Bavaria!!

Love, Hayley ❤


Traveling to Munich?

Hey You guys,

Ok so most of y’all know that  I live in Munich, Germany. BEST PLACE IN THE WORLD. A lot of people that watch my videos, read my blog or follow me in general are interested in A) German culture through an American’s eyes or B) Looking for tips before coming to Germany. This wonderful blog post is for you people that are coming to Munich in the near future.

Munich is full of fancy cars, beautiful people and most importantly BEER. Not only is there a lot of it but the beer actually taste good. I 100% recommend a trip to a biergarten if you are in Munich from the months of April/May-September :D. The buzzing atmosphere will make you feel so welcome.

I have found a map of I guess the “best” biergartens in Munich that are accessible by public transportation. There are many that are not accessible by public transportation BUT I can’t give y’all all the secrets, now can I?

Biergarten Munich

Have a wonderful day & I love you guys ❤


Hi Everyone!

What’s up friends?

I have finally gotten my computer back and a new phone. Thank the heavens! Mike and I decided it would be fun to make an ausflug to one of our favorite locations… Kochl Am See/Walchensee. I promise you guys….If you are in Bayern and near this location you would probably find Mike and I there. We spend way too much time in the same spots…Last week however, we decided to eat somewhere a little different… NO MORE TEGERNSEE BRAUSTUBERL 😀 We decided to eat at Karwendelblick.

It wasn’t the “best” restaurant we have ever been to but the location was nice and the food was tasty PLUS it was relatively cheap 😀

I do feel bad that I force Mike to wait to eat until I take photos of our food 😉 Hopefully you don’t have a significant other like me.

Happy Monday everyone! How are y’all on this wonderful day? I hope you are doing ok, I know Monday’s are no fun BUT we can try to change that? hopefully? Maybe? Mike and I decided to make a little Ausflug last weekend. The trip basically was us riding around in the car to different places in the south of Munich.

The sun was shining in one direction and the clouds were grey in the other directions. Days like this make me sleepy and cuddly. Not only did we have an awesome day together, we decided to take some cute photos (well Mike took photos of me because I suck at taking photos). I am seriously one of those people that will stop on the side of the road to take a picture with a cow or a flower.

If you are in Munich and you are able to move around (Car, Bike or anything that allows you to move freely) I recommend going towards Wolfratshausen ❤ It’s so beautiful and the photos ops in this area are amazing!

Love yall ❤



How to Learn German FAST

Guten Tag ❤

Hey Ya’ll! Ok so most of yall know me from Youtube and have some sort of weird obsession…maybe I should call it passion…Like myself with Germany. I have soaked up the culture (a mixture of German and Bavarian ;)) like a sponge and try my best to be as Germanized as possible.

One of the easiest ways to understand a culture and adapt the quickest is to learn the language! I know, it’s a lot harder than I make it seem BUT that is the reason for this post. I have teamed up with a wonderful app (because I love educational apps that help spread language knowledge) called Flash Academy, you can CLICK HERE to have a go at it.

I personally find Flash Academy to be user friendly and engaging. I am one of those people that can not sit in a class listening to the same lecture for an hour (or as the German language courses like to do, 2.5+ hours). I get bored, I get distracted and everything is so monotone. That is why I personally like this app. It’s constantly changing.

If you would like to watch my video about the app you can CLICK HERE

Basically this app is trying to help you graduate on to the next level of language “mastery” (these are my own words such a wonderful “describer”). There are puzzles, games, exercises…All which cater to learning German and making it fun 😀 I would recommend getting an app 100% (I said this on Youtube over a year ago) and I feel that after searching through and through, Flash Academy is taking learning German to a whole other level!! ❤


I wish yall a wonderful happy Saturday and be safe!!

❤ Always Hayley
