Easter in Germany: a Happy Time!

What I like the most about Germany is how people here really enjoy every season. In Brazil, Rio to be more specific, I felt we had summer all year long except for about 3 colder months (June, July and August), when the temperatures can drop until 15°C at night.

5 (of the many!) Instagrammable Coffee Shops in NY

Let´s get one think out of the way already: I don´t drink coffee. I have nothing against it, I actually have tried to become a coffee drinker.

Key West: Florida´s unpretentious South

Do you know what I like to do when it´s winter in Germany and a fluffy onesie, a cover and two cats seem to not be warming me up enough?  Yeah, a cup of hot chocolate wouldn´t be bad, by no means. But what I really like to do is to reminisce about summer destinations, […]

Some pretty cool Disney Restaurants!

Every trip to Disney World is different. My first vacation there was all about the attractions and the characters. Food was just something I had to eat really fast in between attractions to keep me alive and running around. But things definitely started to change from my third visit on.  Isn´t it interesting how the […]
