Can’t seem to find a pet sitter around the holidays? Thinking of taking your dog with you? Don’t even know where to start? You’re in luck, today, we’ll be covering kennels in the Kaiserslautern area and a beautiful hotel made specifically for you and your dog!
It’s late in the day, most likely a Saturday, and you feel like you could use a pick-me-up. Head no further than your closest “Backerei” or “Konditere”i (a type of café that specializes in pastries or confectionery) and order your coffee or tea of choice.
The food in Europe is amazing — plain and simple. Fresh, organically grown produce, meat straight from the butcher, and breads and pastries baked daily. Eating out isn’t just a meal, but an experience to savor.
Caring for a baby can be very rewarding. It can also be exhausting. Along with those amazing first-year milestones can arise teething misery that disrupts the entire household.
You’re flying down the Autobahn at thrilling speeds, jetting off on another European adventure (or on your way home from one). Suddenly, a sea of red fills the windshield — brake lights as far as the eye can see.
If you poll Americans living in Europe and ask them what stores they miss the most, I bet you’ll find a lot of “Target” responses. Who doesn’t miss haphazardly walking down the aisles as you put your fifth facial mask in your cart, convincing yourself you “need” it?
Situated in the vineyard-dotted slopes of France’s Bordeaux region, a luscious city of wine awaits. Part museum, part wine-tasting, France’s La Cité du Vin is a wine metropolis for oenophiles.
One of the greatest joys (or perhaps disagreements) of traveling is planning where to eat. The obvious choice in Cologne is German food. For those of us that have been living in Germany for a while, we know that German food gets old pretty quick.
If your summer bucket list consists of sunshine, road trips, relaxing by the pool and spending time with friends, you have your priorities straight. However, if you really want to take of YOU, try adding one more thing to your checklist — eating healthy.
Groom for warm weather. Days that are mild to us can be unbearable for our buddies wearing year-round fur. Make sure your pet’s coat is trimmed. If your dog doesn’t do haircuts, brush him to reduce shedding.
Got a pair of bored kids on your hands? They’ve had their book learning throughout the academic year; now, how about setting their sights on critical life skills that will stand them in good stead throughout their adult lives?
Lace up those hiking boots and get ready for an outdoor adventure that includes a delicious meal! It isn’t every day that you venture off on a hike and end up at a restaurant or overnight accommodation. The Höllentalanger Hut, a managed hut owned by the German Alpine Club, lets you do both.
Is there any toy that better expresses the essence of summer than an air mattress? While a cheap and cheery model is just the thing when you’re vacationing next to a lake or by the sea, there are plenty of other inflatable items designed to bring that beachy feeling close to home.
Collecting souvenirs is an important part of travelling for most people. But how do you avoid tacky figurines of famous landmarks? I found that the best way to get souvenirs that you actually like is to focus your search on a few themes.
(StatePoint) Never underestimate the power of scent. When you first open that dryer door or pull a warm, freshly laundered shirt over your head, you feel good, confident, clean and ready to face the day. You might not consciously think it, but you feel it.
Wandering through the sunny streets of Nice on the French Riviera, you may come across a little stand advertising “socca.” Also known as “farinata” in Liguria or “Cecina” in Tuscany, these are pancake-like flatbreads made of chickpea flour (also called garbanzo bean flour), water and olive oil.
