Missed the Fun in Oktoberfest This Year

Hello October! Cold autumn is finally here! How are you doing guys especially during the start of the month? It is getting cold in our area in Germany. I guess, it is all over Germany especially that autumn season is almost here. It is getting colder everyday, which means it is time to slowly turn-on the heater. So far, I am doing good and I can’t wait for the next travels to commence this week.

Oktoberfest is over now. I miss the fun and entertainment in this festival. Today, I heard over the news over the radio that there were less people who visited the world’s biggest fair compared to the past years. There were only 5.9 million of people who were there. It is my fault because I did not go..lol! Just kidding folks. Anyway, I am always busy and besides my full time job hindered me from going there. (more…)


The Biggest Festival, Oktoberfest is Here Again!

Have you been to the largest Volksfest or festival in this world? It seems like last month when I visited the biggest festival in the planet. If my friend did not reminded me last Thursday that Oktoberfest will be starting today, I don’t have any idea about the exact date that it will start.  This is the result of my busy life not trying to find out about this year’s Oktoberfest dates and programs.

This year’s celebration will takes place from September 19 to October 4.


I already visited Oktoberfest many times and I am always fascinated with this celebration. Honestly, I never tasted any beer during one of my visit but I only tried different local delicacies.  (more…)

CP.Mars-EG.06.03.15.png2Hello friends. This is your favorite blogger back with something really interesting this time. Today I will tell you about a brilliant video recording software. All of us love travelling and some time or the other each and every one of have a dream of going to some happening place and get lost in the beauty of the nature. After all whenever one gets devastated with his or her daily life, he or she feels relaxed in the nature’s lap and it works always. Apart from this, it’s always a great idea to go to a holiday with your loved ones whether they are your friends or it may be your family. Holidays are meant to be enjoyed and they should be enjoyed at fullest. Holidays and traveling experiences always leave us with sweet memories and these memories tend to wipe from our memory with the passage of time. Hence it becomes mandatory to capture these memories and save it so that they could be cherished and be shared with our friends and acquaintances whenever required. (more…)

Friends are Leaving Germany Soon

Goodbye February and hello March! It is also like saying goodbye friends and see you in the other part  of the planet! People come and go! Friends come and go as well and good friends always remain friends despite the long distance in between. Sad to hear that some friends will be leaving soon!

These friends are married to US armies and their  families are  temporarily assigned here in Germany. I already met a lot of friends in one of the US Army base in Bavaria. Everytime  they go, I really feel sad. But that is life and if you are married to a US Army, you have to go where the next call of duty is for your husband. (more…)


Musicians at the Fasching or Carnival in Germany

The Fasching or Carnival season is almost ending. It’s last day will be on Tuesday before Ash Wednesday. I was watching on TV a Fasching celebration in Cologne this evening. It was really fun and entertaining.

Every village, town or city in Germany has its own way of celebrating the Fasching festival. Whether big or small, I always love how they celebrated. I believed, I am already loving this German culture.

Its perfect location somewhere in the middle of this continent has helped me a lot in starting to explore the fabulous beauty of Europe.
