Living in Germany? Plan ahead for the hot weather that's coming or you may be spending time camped out at the air-conditioned commissary.
Stay-at-home evenings might have become the new normal, but that doesn’t mean each and every one of them has to revolve around the same old drill. On the hunt for a new activity to share amongst a small circle of friends that doesn’t involve the TV or the grill?
You’ve heard it your entire life: drink more water. Water seems to be the magical cure for everything. Dry skin? Drink more water. Headache? Drink more water.
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.
Tasting unique, one-of-a-kind regional food is one of my favorite things about moving to a new assignment. You can discover amazing, authentic flavors that you may not have otherwise tried. Burnt ends in Kansas City? Yes, thanks. Loco mocos and malasadas in Hawaii? Check.

We’ve all been there — a really long day at work. A micromanaging boss, a co-worker who snuck into the fridge and ate your lunch, hours spent in meetings which could have (and should have) been conducted via email.
If there’s one takeaway from living in Germany it is that Germans excel at many things they put their minds to. From cars to beers, Germans definitely know about quality, and their wine is no exception.
Although it’s not for all tastes or seasons, strong alcohol has deep roots in European culture, and, as in so many other things, traditions vary greatly as you move across the continent. For many travelers, tasting the national cuisine is a must.
With many events canceled and public venues closed, the backyard is likely going to be the new hot spot destination for families nationwide. But staying home doesn’t have to be boring. Using these tips, you can put together an afternoon of sunshine and fun, right in your own backyard.
