Dresden Christmas Market

Speaking of Dresden… There are quite a few things that took place between our trip to Dresden in August and today, but since today’s story also deals with Dresden, I’ll just write about it now. Today, however, the temperature was hovering around freezing, it snowed at one point,  and most important difference of all, we…

Dresden Fado Walking

Dresden is only a three-hour drive from Wrocław, but we had a long weekend to kill this past August, so we spent a couple of nights in East Germany to make the most of it. Naturally, Fado, our chocolate Labrador, had to come with, so I ran a quick Airbnb search for a place that…

Intermot Photos

I don’t really have too much commentary for this other that I hope you enjoy these photos. There’s quite a lot to take in at the show.

Looking somewhat similar to the standard curling we’re already used to, Bavarian Curling dates as far back as 16th century as seen on this Peter Bruegel painting from 1565. Fast forward a few hundred years and this…

Munich Walking

However this one trip was different. Much different. And while you will see just why in tomorrow’s Oktoberfest post, today I will throw…

Extreme Fun

Thinking back of the X Games, a week spent there wasn’t gonna pass by without having some serious fun. Ever since learning of our participation in the event months ago I was getting ready to see some live extreme sport action. While work is work and scooters rolled around all day, on one afternoon my…
