5 indispensable “cliché” souvenirs to bring back from Brazil

#1 Language: English 🇺🇸

-By Vivi Morgado

I love shopping for souvenirs! And who doesn´t like to receive them, right? Every time I visit my family and friends back home in Brazil, I try to take with me interesting gifts that say something about the German culture. That´s why, a few days ago, I was inspired to write about souvenir ideas you can buy in Germany to take home for yourself, or for special people in your life! I thought it would be something useful to read from somebody who has to do this every year and can´t repeat gifts, lol.

Living in a small town in Germany

#1 Language: English 🇺🇸

-By Vivi Morgado

When people ask me where do I live in Germany, I often say “Frankfurt”. But that´s just a way to avoid saying the name of our small town and hearing back “what?!”. Well, just like everywhere in the world, living in a main city here has become very expensive. Besides, most of the times, you have to give up on space and comfort in order to live in a central area. We chose tranquility and well-being over location. So, today, we will share with you a little bit about our experience of living in a small town in Germany!

Hilton Munich Park – A comprehensive Review

– By Mathias Nicolai

#1 Language: English 🇺🇸
For a get together with a former colleague in Munich, we decided to take the Hilton Munich Park as our meeting point. Located directly at the English Garden, the hotel offered a fair price and a nice view. Nobody knew, at that point, that the beginning of our stay would be so difficult. How my stay was and if I would recommend the hotel, you can read it here.

#1 Language: English 🇺🇸
A trip to New Zealand was always one of our biggest dreams! After doing a lot of research and seeing it becoming reality, we were sure this would be a different trip. Though we normally choose to stay at brand hotels we know we can rely on, due to our crazy itinerary we couldn´t do this for New Zealand.

10 ideas of souvenirs to take back home from Germany

– By Vivi Morgado

#1 Language: English 🇺🇸
Traveling is all about experiences and the unforgettable memories we collect, right? If you are lucky, some of these moments will be captured in pictures while others will be fondly kept in our minds. The special thing about souvenirs though, is that they have a way of reminding us of special occasions or stories, sometimes even unexpectedly. For example, every time my mom cooks in her Bavarian apron, it brings me back to the trip I had with my parents and a friend to Germany back in 2012! Read More

Farmers´ Market in Frankfurt

 – by Vivi Morgado

#1 Language: English 🇺🇸
Sometimes we need a little push to try something new, right? It´s been a few years I passed by the farmers´market in Frankfurt on Saturdays, but I was never curious enough to actually stop by and take a look. It´s not that the market didn´t seem attractive. I mean, tell me where there are food trucks selling fresh local food and I´m there. But since we usually go to the farmer´s market in our little town on Thursdays, I just assumed that in the city you would find the same stuff for a higher price. Additionally, we are usually on a mission when we visit Frankfurt on the weekends, so a stop at the market would cost us time. Read More

Rüdesheim am Rhein is one of our favorite cute little towns in Germany! Rüdesheim is located at the Rhein Valley and it has all of the charms of a small community between a scenic river and a mountain. But I hope you don´t mistake small for boring: there´s plenty to do here if you like history, shopping, hiking or wine tasting!
