Why I chose this city to live.

Four and a half years ago I moved from a small town called “Ichenhausen” in Bavaria, populated by 8000 people to the third largest City in Germany- Hamburg. Hamburg is 760 km away from my hometown, so it took me a while to decide that I wanted to live there. I grew up in an even smaller town, that had only 900 inhabitants. My friends over there are amazing, and it is really a pleasure and a gift, if the people around you know who you really are, and take you the way you are, without compromises. I worked as a nurse in a hospital at that time and was blessed with having great colleagues I also worked in my favourite bar, which was the meeting point of our friends. We had really funny time there, my friends are all musicians, so we always had parties with live music until the sun rose. We all became older and our interests changed. They got more settled, had families, built houses, and calmed down. But I was bored, wanted more, wanted to see the world and got itchy feet. In 2011 while I was travelling through Thailand, I got to know a guy that lives in Hamburg. I told him, that I was unhappy, and that I needed a change in my life. The plan was to move to a city with more options other than one bar, a few lakes around or just one close cinema in the next town. I couldn’t imagine Munich nor Stuttgart, which where the closest bigger cities around. I had been to Hamburg once, I spent just one night there after a concert 11 years ago. But I saw that beautiful impressive harbor, felt the spirit of the town and could fell the pulse there. So, the decision fell to Hamburg.  I didn´t move here because of love, but i stayed, because i felt in love with that City.

Tip #7: Enjoy the experience

It will be different. Probably more crowded, most likely louder. A lot of social differences and some cultural surprises. Open yourself up for it. Immerse yourself into the gorgeous landscapes, the beautiful language and the contagious Brazilian laugh. Take photos, but most of all, make memories and connections! And if you don’t know how long are you staying – and you have time – stay long, and travel around! By car, bus or plane. And please, don’t mention last year’s World Cup. Some people are still mourning that 7×1 that Germany buried us with.

Stralsund - A Treasure in the Baltic

Sooooo, roughly one year ago I was moving to the most northeast peak of Germany, to a little town named Stralsund. Stralsund belongs to the federal state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, it is bathed by the Baltic sea on a beautiful coast line and it is the home of around 56 000 inhabitants. Included in these inhabitants are the students of the Stralsund Fachhoschule, who are encouraged to register themselves in the city on their arrival and therefore wining a prize of symbolic amount of money. I’m not gonna lie, that money bought me a cozy winter jacket, which would turn out to be quite useful for a Mediterranean girl as myself spending the winter there. So, yes, I went there to join the fachhoschule for one semester for studying Leisure and Tourism Management. Turns out, even though it was the winter semester and the weather was kind of harsh on me, I did not end up studying much…, at least not as hard as I was expecting. Why? Because I kept being busy with all the best Stralsund had to offer.

Almost unknown Germany: Halle an der Saale

Last year I had the pleasure of spending 6 months in Halle an der Saale as an erasmus student. Yes, i know what you are all thinking! Halle is a city in eastern Germany, really close to Leipzig and not that far from Berlin. But everybody knows Berlin, right? And what about Halle? Let me help you getting to know this underestimated city! Hier is what I think you should do if you find yourself in Halle for a short time.

Places to visit:  Historical, museums and nature

First let me introduce you with this city on the north of Europe. Osnabrück is the fourth largest city in Lower Saxony in North West Germany, with the population of around  160 000. Osnabrück is the turmoil of the Thirty Years War survived virtually untainted, so exhausted warring parties chose the old town along with the neighboring Munster as the site of the peace treaty.

A wurst on the way

You haven’t been to Germany if you haven’t tried their famous wurst. I liked it and I don’t even like meat that much. So all you meat lovers out there, definitely try this. You can get a wurst on the street, in a pub or in a restaurant. And if you happen not to like it- pizza is always a good idea. And the best thing about it is that there is always a pizza place somewhere close to you.

Morning Orientation Tour of Berlin Center

 On the first day, we took the Sandemanns’ free walking tour which started at Brandenburg Gate. The tour was a great intro into the city – we walked through the Holocaust Memorial, the site of Hitler’s suicide (unmarked, a series of apartment buildings sit above this historic site), Checkpoint Charlie and former military offices of the East Germany government post WWII. We also glimpsed the impressive Reichstag (book in advance for the chance to go to the rooftop!) and the theaters at Potsdamer Platz. Lunch was currywurst (a must try Berlin street snack) and a Berliner donut during the mid-tour break. Not the healthiest meal but a good reward after a morning of walking. My healthy ‘meal’

Walchensee: The hidden lake in Germany

Walchensee or Lake Walchen is a beautiful lake nestled in between the peaks of the Heimgarten and the Herzogstand mountains and is one of the most underrated vacation spots in the world. This beautiful lake found in the middle of the Bavarian Alps is a relatively quiet and peaceful touristic attraction. As one of the deepest and largest lakes in Germany, Walchensee offers its’ visitors a spectacular view along with fun activities to enjoy. Lake Walchen, with its picturesque view, is not only considered one of the most beautiful places in Bavaria but is also known for being a surfer’s paradise. The reason why this breathtaking lake is still not known to many people is because its location made it hidden even from some neighboring citizens. However, now that it has been discovered by you through the internet, it is a place that I highly recommend you to visit and explore.

Sight Seeing

We spent the next day living straight out of the cliche-tourist handbook, visiting all the must-sees from Checkpoint Charlie (in my opinion a quintessential piece of history, obliterated by the exploitation and greed of tourism companies), to the holocaust memorial and of course, the Berlin wall. We were lucky enough to come across an amazing young tour guide named Pip, she gave us an in-depth and enthusiastic walking tour of the city for a very decent price. I learnt more about Germany in the two hours we spent with Pip than all of my time doing social studies at school, and her passionate wisdom made for a less statistical and more emotional retention of Berlin’s unparalleled background. We stood directly above the bombproof bunker that Adolf Hitler had killed himself in, saw the wall and heard the heartbreaking tales of the people who had attempted to cross it. She knew it off by heart and yet it felt like she was saying it all for the first time, almost jumping with excitement when she got to the bits she really liked. We parted ways, eventually giving her a 5 star rating on her TripAdvisor profile, before grabbing dinner and a beer at yet another affordable and delicious restaurant. This time around it was a much more German experience, as our beer was served by waitresses dressed in the full lederhosen get-up. They spoke only German, challenging us to rack our brains for the few generic phrases we had memorized on the way to the airport. Exhausted from a long day of walking around, with backpacks made slightly heavier by the leftover jet lag from the flight, we decided to retreat to the hotel after dinner and give the night life a rain check for now.

Few reasons why Catalonia wants the independence?

There have always been people willing the independence in Catalonia but the percentage wasn’t never that high. It increased a lot the past few years with the help of the Spanish government and its leader, Mariano Rajoy who, instead of reaching agreements and use dialogue as a tool to try to maintain Spain “happy” (that would also mean Catalonia), got completely blinded by his fears and forgot what “politics” and “democracy” really mean leaving us sometimes thinking we travelled in time back to 1939 – Franco’s dictatorship – and feeding indirectly the separatist movement with his disrespectful statements. Few reasons why Catalonia wants the independence? Catalonia became a nation in 988. Has its own culture and language. Barcelona is the city in the world that has been bombed more times by Spain. (A bit curious  most punished territory is theoretically “Spanish owned”). Lluis Companys (catalan president) was the only president elected democratically in Europe who got shot and even now Spain is refusing to override symbolically the case. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mt31tCJdsLE There are more universities teaching catalan in Germany or Italy than in Spain. Catalan is actually forbidden in the Spanish Parliament. Every year, Catalonia gives to Spain 16.000.000.000 euros more than the money that gets  back from the government. (That’s why we are in debt) Catalonia is the 16% of Spain’s population and contributes with the 20% of the GDP. But only gets back the 9.5% of the State budget. Spain refuses to invest in infrastructures or social action plans in Catalonia. (ex. Mediterranean Corridor) Catalonia’s parliament approved the Autonomy Statute which we presented to the Spanish parliament by 2006, 4 years later, after a long wait (too many pages to read I guess) they basically said “NO”. Catalonia’s president asked for a fiscal agreement similar than the one other Spanish regions already have but also got a “NO”. Catalonia tried to ask permission to elaborate a referendum on self-determination but obviously, got a “NO”. Catalonia realised there was a law approved already by the parliament which specified Catalonia could consult its people about any topic, so Catalonia did it with two questions on November 9th of 2014: – Would you like Catalonia to become an State? – Would you like the State to become independent? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ABkfT8ocG0w The Spanish president, Mariano Rajoy started alleging it was unconstitutional, the results wouldn’t be relevant and everyone behind it should be judged. The former president of Catalonia was accused of attempting against the Spanish Constitution and had to attend to court. The votes were declared unofficial and out law and even there was an independent majority, the Spanish government kept acting like nothing was happening.

Hot season

 All over the world all the sales are dedicated to holidays. So Berlin is not an exception and you will contemplate a variety of colorful billboards and advertising bills with a melodical word “RABBAT!”. By the way, one more must-know word for “tourist lexicon” in Germany: “rabbat” means “sale”, good sign! Best period of sales – 2 weeks before Christmas and about 3 weeks after. During the whole January you will see crowds of people around chilling out and doing shopping. Even if your trip is planned for another time, don’t worry. In Berlin you one’s can find something to his or her particular passion and of course budget.

Why to go?

There is nothing better than a high location combining history, culture and a magnificent view of nature wonders. Walhalla has it all… It represents an era of Germany that was getting closer together by unifying many of its states, it combines Greek and Germanic culture only by seeing it and hearing its name and it is truly beautiful to watch. Both the temple and its interior stand there in their greatness proving that inspiration can create things that leave people speechless and that they can be used in a most respectable manner. Because what is the best way to use such a monument if not for a memorial for those ones who deserve it. And last but certainly not least, the Danube. Oh dear that river is magnificent no matter where you find it. It truly never lets you down. No one should regret getting at this high spot. The view is truly one of a kind and it makes you think that everything is possible. Let me tell you that as a Greek seeing a Greek style temple in another country does not offend me. On the contrary, it proves to me how much influence the Greek culture had and still has into the world and makes me feel exceptionally proud of my country. (photo taken from Augenklick )

A little backstory

Catherine Hamlyn maintained the traditional practices of Clovelly ensuring the preservation of the village, including the non-entry of vehicles. She was also astute enough to realise that visitors proved a good source of income for the village. When walking around Clovelly you can find many houses inscribed with her initials ‘CH’ along with the year they were built. The frontage of one particular house is ornamented with German influence decor, as Catherine was inspired by the houses in Germany on one of her visits to the country.

Enjoying Rothenburg ob der Tauber, Germany

I want to introduce you to a wonderful medieval town in Germany. This is a town I visited every year for almost 17 years. This is my favorite town in all of Germany. The name of the town is Rothenburg ob der Tauber. The town is located in the northern part of Bavaria. The phrase “ob der Tauber” translates into over the Tauber Valley. Rothenburg gets its name from many the buildings in the town having red roofs (“rot” means “red).

Therme Erding: welcome to the second largest spa centre in Europe!

The second largest spa in Europe, Erding’s Therme is divided into several areas. These include, but are not limited to, a fun-filled zone with different kinds of slides perfect for any thrill-seeker and a more relaxing zone with loads of saunas, each featuring its own special attraction. The sauna zone however has a strict ‘no swimsuit allowed’ policy. I learnt this is fairly common in Germany, there are many wellness centres and people are accustomed to going buck-naked. As far as I’m concerned however, even if in the past few years I’ve adopted a more spontaneous attitude and embraced a somewhat ‘take it easy’ outlook on life, I still have a long way to go before I can really call myself an adventurous person. Which is why accepting my friend’s last-minute invitation to join him felt like a sort of achievement – an insignificant step for mankind, a giant leap for me. Besides the fact that I barely knew this guy, having only met him once a couple of months ago, guess where my friend mostly wanted to spend the evening? While he is a sort of veteran, having visited the spa a few times already, I couldn’t stop thinking that I was, for the first time, willingly going to expose my body in front of strangers including my friend, a stranger as well to some extent. After being torn in two for a few hours though I gave in to the part of me which screamed ‘just do it!’ So flights were quickly reserved and even if I knew I could still withdraw I also knew I would regret it forever if I didn’t take that chance.

Goslar: A Town from Another Time

When I was sixteen I spent a year at a boarding school in the middle of the Harz region in Germany. The town where my boarding school was didn’t have much: it was a small health-resort (very beautiful, by the way) full of elder citizens who didn’t go out if it was too cold, and the biggest place you could go to was the supermarket next to the train station. In other words, if I wanted to do something different during the weekends, I had to hop on a train and go somewhere else. And that’s how I found myself in Goslar.

Things what surprised me most in Berlin

Berlin is the capital city of Germany. And it is also the biggest city in whole Germany, and second biggest city in the European Union (after London). And like any other capital city or some other big city, it is full of tourists. At least it was in September, and I am sure there is, even more, tourists during summer time.

Winter ist bald da! (Winter is almost here!)

I spent 25 years of my life in the sunny Philippines. I was one of those girls who dreamt of seeing snow, play snowballs, do snow angels and even try to know the taste of snow (trust me I tried it hahaha). Then suddenly I left home, flew thousands of miles away and landed in the beautiful country of Germany, where Winter is inevitable. I couldn’t contain the happiness in my heart when I witnessed the first-ever snowfall of my life! As if everything was in a slow-motion. It was indeed loved at first sight.

Frankfurt: A Pleasant Surprise

     A few weeks ago, I was going through my daily dose of Skyscanner searches and came across a shockingly inexpensive flight to Frankfurt, Germany. I thought why not? I had always imagined myself going to Munich or Berlin but the opportunity arose and off to Frankfurt I went. As the financial capital of the European banking system, I was not really sure what to expect upon my arrival. A friend of mine from the United States is from Frankfurt and had recommended a small itinerary of things to do but other than that I was on my own.
