An Afternoon in Büdingen, Germany and a Few Fun Facts


After only 2 hours in Rothenburg ob der Tauber, I knew my Mom wanted to spend time in a place with a similar charm.

2 Hours in Rothenburg ob der Tauber, Germany


As an archaeologist, I’m more accustomed to slow travel. Spending days, weeks, or even months, in a location is my normal.

We quickly booked a train and hotel and made our way to Mont Saint Michel at the end of...

Learn How to Cook and Eat Well for Free


We all need to eat. Sometimes (or most of the time) we find ourselves in situations where eating out or buying ready-made meals is not an affordable/available/wanted option. One of the best ways to reduce costs is to learn how to cook and actually do it. Cooking your own meals can help save money when you’re travelling (especially in locales where eating out is expensive), stretch funds...

Butter, Baguettes, and Beer: French Foods Worth Trying


When I was in middle school we had two foreign language options, Spanish and French. I don’t know why, perhaps it was due to the all the Madeline I watched as a child, but I picked French. When I entered high school, I found out that every two years or so our French teacher would take students to Paris for about two weeks during the summer. I immediately started saving any money I made...
