Fasching or Carnival Season is also a Musical Season

Hey folks! How’s your weekend currently going on? I hope  January is  good to all of you. As for me, so far this month is doing fine. I only seem not to feel good since yesterday until today due to some headache and stomachache. I am feeling better now and I hope to go to bed as soon as I can.

Fasching or carnival season is here! I am actually deciding whether to go to Venice, Italy to witness their famous carnival. I still have time to decide until next week..I will see. (more…)


Having Fun Visiting the Christmas Markets in Germany

Christmas is around the corner! Are you ready for it? I hope so! I guess, I am! I am glad that the Christmas decors were finally done in the cozy home. I started putting the decorations last month because I know that I will be very busy for December. Yes, indeed I am very busy these days.

It was a very cold and snowy afternoon when we visited the Christmas market in Bamberg, a city in Bavaria, Germany but we had so much fun there.

Are you visiting Germany this month? I highly recommend you to visit the Christmas market that is currently going on wherever you are in Germany. Whether you are in Bavaria, Rhineland-Palatinate, Saxony, Baden Wurttemberg, Hesse or any regions and cities in the country, you can experience the exciting and beautiful Christmas markets everywhere.

Holiday Season is Shopping Season!

Hi folks! I am back here. I can’t imagine that holiday season is just around the corner. Today is the beginning of the last month of the year and I hope it is starting  fine for all of you out there.

So far, so good for me. I just started a new job and I am very sure, I am loving it. My new boss told me this morning that when I walked out the door after my interview, the other month, I am his choice for the position due to the way I answered the questions during the interview.  I was happy to hear that and seems like an inspiration to me.

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…)

Summer time is the best time of the year to visit Germany especially the region of Bavaria, where you can witness a lot of this so-called Volksfest or people’s fair or simply called festival celebrated even by small towns up to any big cities in Bavaria.

A true friend of travelers; Movavi Screen capture studio

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…)

The Rathaus or Town Hall of Forchheim. This was built in 14th–16th centuries with decors by Hans Ruhalm in 1523. In the middle is the Osterbrunnen or the  Easter Fountain.

Anyway, before I sign-off for tonight and before March ends, let me share my day-trip in this beautiful town of Forchheim. This former royal city is located in Upper Franconia in northern Bavaria. This region is known as the “Gateway to the Franconian Switzerland”. (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…)
