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 😀

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 ❤

Dirndl Time

Ok, so I have neglected my blog. I know, I am horrible. I have been extremely busy…You try having 2 jobs and working an average 40-50 hours a week and run a Youtube channel and blog (If you do this…Bless you). I am so happy to finally squeeze back into my dirndl. I took a hibernation phase which also meant gaining SO MUCH WEIGHT AND HAVING TO go 2 sizes up in my dirndl BUT I enjoyed all the chocolate :p

“About uh week ago..or 2” My favorite Dirndl brand EVER Trachtenwahnsinn LINK HERE had a fashion show in Aloft Munich for their new collection. Basically bringing in the new season for Munich means Dirndl fashion shows everywhere (just kidding). 😀 I was there to add my dimples to the mix and let me tell you guys I fell in love all over again with these bad boys. These dirndls are seriously HAYLEY, they scream my name from the top of the rooftops all through Munich all the while throwing glitter and flowers at pedestrians (am I weird?).

I would just like to say that I am having so much fun in Munich and it’s living up to be everything I ever wanted ❤ Also if you want to see me being stupid on TV…. CLICK HERE

Hopefully I can add more to this story of mine..This relationship I have with Trachtenwahnsinn is so geil :p I also plan on making some videos about this so we shall see!!!

BAYERN

Good Evening Friends ❤

This past Saturday I was riding all around a winter wonderland. I really love Munich, Bayern, Bavaria…ETC ETC. It is seriously one of the most majestic and beautiful places this world has to offer. I am not too happy with the lack of snow BUT hopefully that will come some time very soon! Aside from being in the car going 100+ on the country back roads, I was able to see such beautiful scenery! From Kochlsee to Tegernsee to Wallgau to Jachenau.

I plan to have a video uploaded sometime next year about riding/driving in Germany..We shall see how that goes! I hope yall have a wonderful weekend and Happy Early 4th Advent!

❤ Hayley

Ho Ho Ho

Happy Holidays Friends

It is December…The time has been flying by so fast and I still have yet to get my life together. I am currently sitting at my desk eating chocolate and praying that the chocolate is magical and does not make me fat -_- A girl can dream right?

Coming from Florida I never really had the “White Christmas” experience. I saw snow when I was 16 and I was not that amused. I am used to being at the beach on the 26th of December drinking a Pina Colada (no joke, it’s like a tradition..I’m an alcoholic..UGH MOTHER DONT JUDGE ME). None the less moving to Germany has taught me a lot of things and has opened my eyes to so many culture shocks BUT one of the most major culture shocks I have experienced are the Christmas/Festive/Holiday/Winter times.

Ok you’re probably thinking “Hayley Christmas is Christmas”..YEAH I USED TO THINK THIS AS WELL BUT I WAS WRONG.. WE ARE WRONG TOGETHER. WE ARE ALLLL SIMPLY WRONG.

This post will not go into the details about Christmas/Winter it will just skim the surface and I hope that is enough for yall. I will post a video this a week before Christmas (the 16th-18th ish because Christmas is on the 25th for us crazy Americans) and you can watch it to see some more points/hear what I have to say about Christmas. I will be listing  5 points and save the rest for the video! Enjoy ❤

  • Christmas is celebrated on the 24th in Germany and the 25th in The United States
    1. The Germans (some) have a “preliminary”(the easiest word I could use) Christmas that is on the 6th of December and children receive presents.

 

  • Germany has crazy Christmas Markets (seriously you can not compare it to anything in the United States). In The USA we have a bunch of parades and they usually bring about a feeling of Christmas.

 

  • Trees in America are ridiculous (we have candy canes, lights, popcorn Cindy Crawford Home decor..hehe). German trees seem to be more traditional.

 

  • The German Santa Claus system can be very confusing if you are not informed about it beforehand. Different regions use different names for the same person. In the USA we use Santa for EVERYTHING.
    • Don’t be surprised if you are in Munich that you hear Christkindl and if you are up north you hear weihnachtsmann….It’s typical

 

  • The final point which is my favorite is that in The USA we have eggnog and in Germany there is GLÜHWEIN which is basically THE BEST DRINK EVER… Mulled wine…Sweet, warm and makes you want to sit on the couch cuddling your dog or cat or hamster…Whichever you prefer.

 

If you are moving to Germany or just visiting, enjoy as much and as many Christmas markets as you can and take 1,000,000 photos! Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and many many kisses.

Dating German Men- Behind The Scenes

Good Evening everyone

Happy 2nd to last day of November :p I am quite excited because very soon my video with Dating Beyond Borders aka Marina aka funniest girl ever, will be posted!!! Marina’s channel focuses on dating around the world with a funny twist added to it. I love her videos and was so excited when she asked me if I wanted to work with her. Not only did we have a good time, I realized how much I love Youtube. I have met so many amazing people from different walks of life through Youtube and I don’t know how I would pass my time without Youtube. Hopefully the video will be posted in the coming weeks and then I can laugh alone in my room late at night while I put it on repeat….I am not weird…I promise.

The Whisper Challenge

Good evening everyone 😀

I am having technical difficulties with my computer and it’s not uploading videos to Youtube. WHATEVER APPLE…REBEL. I DONT CARE. IT’S NOT LIKE IM TRYING TO HAVE A SUCCESSFUL YOUTUBE CHANNEL ANYWAYS -_-

As most of yall know I met with Theresia and as always we made a video 😀 I will not upload the video for awhile due to editing and my upload schedule. I am always happy to make videos with her but this video really made me laugh my @#$ off. We decided The Whisper Challenge would be fun and entertaining to do. I always watched these videos on Youtube but after doing it myself I realized that it was anything but easy.

I can’t wait to post it but until then…PICTURES ❤
