  • Gosh, this village is soooooooo cute! And I bet he has 🥖🥖 in his bag.
.
I have been catching up on the news and I am sadden with what’s going on with the children who have been separated from their parents.
.
I was five-years-old when I came to America. My dad was on a student visa. I had many friends from Vietnam, Laos etc with parents who came as refugees. The move wasn’t good for me. I was extremely close to my grandpa and it was a traumatic experience having to have been separated from him. I missed him so much and it made me very ill. Up to this day I still remember one of my many nightmares from those sick days.
.
Just last year I actually had a panic attack whilst going through therapy and believe it or not, a lot of my negative feelings stem from those few months when I was five years old.
.
I hope these families get reunited again and that the childhood trauma will one day heal ❤️

  • Who wants to sit at this most adorable table? 🙋🏻‍♀️
.
An amazing dinner date with the hubby at this Michelin guide restaurant. This particular table was also where Anthony Bourdain sat last week filming Parts Unknown.
.
Anthony, 🥂
.
A great day exploring Eguisheim and Colmar. Of to see some more villages tomorrow.
.
Have a great weekend!
  • What a sweet little swan family ❤️
.
Growing up my family had pet swans. I hated them as much as they hated me. Imagine being 4 or 5 years old and being chased around by these birds. Squalling with wings spread out.
.
Spending a few days in the Alsace region. We have zero plans. Any recommendations besides cute villages? We have our dogs and kids and indoor activities and wine tours may be limited.
  • Dude was wondering if Rupunzel would throw down her hair. 😜😂
.
Here is another thing I love about Europe: cobblestone streets. Here is one thing I am not too big of a fan of: walking on wet and steep cobblestone streets.
.
Off road tripping again tomorrow💃🏻🎉
.
Right now though, I need to Bath the dogs. I don’t want smelly dogs in the car 🐶 I love how doggy friendly this area is!!
.
Laters!
  • Hello beautiful, Luxembourg! Can you spot the car?
.
Went on a wet drive to this beautiful country and city. Sorry people of Germany who had to drive behind me. It was very 🌧🌧 and that morphed me into a granny.
.
The old part of the city and the newer part in the backdrop. This is what I love be about many European cities, the centres are often preserved.
.
Lovely chat with my new friend and despite a couple wrong turns, even into ING Direct’s private parking garage and holding four cars back due to it, we made it there and back.
.
Until next time! 😘
  • Bernkastel-Kues is a bit of a fairy tale town in my opinion. M said while there: Wow, I still can’t believe we’re in Germany and only about an hour away from this place.
.
Lots of rain today with more to come. This week.
.
In a little bit school will be out and unlike the last few years, I have not planned for anything yet! No activities/clubs, National Trust sites, or general outings. I suppose in the past the summer was always automatically filled with gymnastics training and the one or two empty spaces we’d fill with an outing. But this year, the girls have no activity and while it’s something we’d love to do, realistically we can’t travel all the time because even if it’s just petrol, they add up quick.
.
What do you all do/have done with your children that’s quite inexpensive?
.
Have a great one!!
  • Can you spot the cats?
.
Sadden by the passing of Anthony Bourdain.
.
A few years ago we went to Paris to not sight see but to eat at the places Anthony ate at and eat the things he tried, andouillette being one. He helped hubby and I be more adventurous with our food.
.
We’re all on different paths in this game of life. Somebody else’s life may look so much better than ours. Many people’s lives on Instagram may look so much more exciting and beautiful than ours. But, unless we are walking in their shoes, we would never truly know. What we see on the outside may not be truly what’s in the inside.
.
Be kind, reach out, and listen. You never know, the most popular person in your circle of friends may actually be very lonely inside.
.
Take care!
  • I am contemplating gardening as my old lady retired activity (I like to plan... even if it’s still 30 years away 🙈). I kind of like this organised clutter gardening style. Some may call it English but it seems like the Germans likes this look too. If not, I’d be content with just a veggie + herb garden.
.
On a different note... please tell me that I am not the only one who can’t do the Floss dance. The girls have been trying to teach me but they’ve all been fails. I mean, I thought my moves were awesome but girlies thought otherwise 🙄 Whatever... 🙈😂
.
Happy Thursday, all!
  • Hey! I am back! 😊
.
I have been exploring and photographing, but mostly, I have been trying to immerse into the new culture and people without having a gadget on my hand and reflecting on many things.
.
My IG started out as a place where I shared the little things that made me feel joy inside. Since before we moved, I haven’t felt that joy. It’s not because things are bad. It’s just a lot have been going on and after arriving here, many things are very different, and my brain has been struggling. I am naturally a logical person, an INTJ per Myers-Briggs (Google it 😊), and being creative takes more effort when there are things to sort out.
.
But, the last week or so, I am starting to feel again and like when I started IG, I have to now just make myself look and snap something everyday. They may end up just in Stories but I’ll be snapping 😊
.
Bernkastel-Kues, often called the heart of the Middle Mosel, is famous for its vineyard. How they pick the grapes from such steep hills are beyond me! We’ll have to revisit when it’s harvest season... sans children so hubby and I can do a wine tour 😊
.
Now that building... isn’t it crookedly gorgeous? I couldn’t see what I was snapping (had phone way up above me and just hoping for the best) but pleased to see a solo well posed man.
.
Have a great Wednesday!!
