Learn a Language as Painlessly as Possible

I’ve been struggling with German for some time now due to many factors in my life. Here’s a link to one of my numerous German posts. Anyways, since we received some extra money at Christmas time, I thought I’d finally get my butt moving on learning German, so I signed up for the Goethe Institute. They’ve been around for decades […]

Quarantine Time

Hello Everyone! It’s been a month since I’ve posted on my blog, and I’m quite disappointed in myself. I wanted to make sure there was a post every week. Fortunately, I have a lot going on. First, I updated my author website, so if you get a chance please check it out and let me know what you think. https://authordenisebaer.com/ […]

Knock Knock

Is anyone home? I AM NOW!!!! *wipes sweat from forehead, takes a gulp of water, and continues typing* “Home is where your story begins” For the past 2 months, my husband and I have been prepping to move, moved, getting our new home ready, and cleaning up the old flat. It’s been non-stop. Last summer, we spent so many days […]

What up, Everyone?

Hello, It’s been a while since I’ve posted. I spent 3 weeks in the States with family and friends and it took about a week for my sleep pattern to return to normal. It was a long trip and I’m glad to be back home. Before leaving for the States, my husband and I found a house to rent long-term, […]

Enjoy Your Surroundings

Sometimes I forget to just BE in the moment. To look around and appreciate what’s around me. When I do, I wind up being and feeling pleasantly surprised. And I also want to share the experience with others. I’m going to bring you on a little journey. This journey consists of one of several bike ride routes my husband and […]

Hidden Gems in Germany

Today I’m going to take you to a few hidden gems we visited over Easter vacation. I’m always looking for those different places that aren’t overrun by tourists. The little towns tucked away in the hills or by the sea. We had such a lousy winter that we were ready to take off to someplace else, so we rented a […]

A Trip Down Medieval Lane

This past weekend, my husband and I drove to Rothenburg ob der Tauber, a town in Ansbach District of Germany. I had always pictured Germany looking just like this preserved medieval town. Since we traveled here during off-season, the weather wasn’t the best, but that didn’t stop us from enjoying ourselves. At this time, we had gray skies, cold weather, […]

An American Immigrant

Life is magical if you live it. If you look outside the box, move outside your comfort zone, question government, converse with people, and enjoy the beauty of the world. Through my life, I’ve always been one not to conform to the norm. Traveling was always something I enjoyed, and I’m one who embraces change. This set me apart from […]

Good Morning and Happy New Year Germanica!

And everyone else out there. It’s a new year and fresh starts always get me excited in a non-sexual way (I think that needed clarification). For Christmas, my husband and I decided we should each choose one gift. Amazon had a sale on Kindle Fire, so my husband jumped on it, and I got a portable stepper. So while he […]
