Frankfurt: A Modern City

Frankfurt is the hub of German airline Lufthansa so we flew in and out of it. Known as Germany’s financial capital, Frankfurt has a modern skyline that’s paired nicely with its own section of the Main river ; you should definitely walk and run along there as the city straddles both sides of the river.

Hamburg: A Spacious City

Hamburg was one of my favorite German cities because it reminded me so much of Florence, Italy. It was so spacious but also bustling at the same time.

Queenstown: The Perfect Lakeside Town

Queenstown is that city I look for on every international country trip I go on. It’s relaxing, quaint, and not a big city. Big cities really all look and feel the same after awhile (it can get old) but smaller getaway, picturesque towns are always the sweetest place to unwind. Located on the shores of […]

Winter Vacation in New Orleans

Even without Mardi Gras, you can still admire the architecture in the French Quarter, ride the St. Charles street car to see dozens of the antebellum mansions, eat fresh and soft beignets (powdered sugar […]
