Allow me to introduce myself, I’m Wendy and I love to travel and share. I decided to create a blogsite that would help people connect, chat and share their experiences and learn new travel tips together.
I have been traveling around Europe for the last year and a half with family, friends, and new friends. We’ve had a ball! I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Hospitality Managment and Travel & Tourism from Johnson & Wales University in Providence, RI and I’ve been traveling for over 20 years with my retired military man.
This blog will be a compilation of travel resources, local reviews and tips, hiking (because we love to hike) spots and conversations. On each of the pages, you’ll have an opportunity to comment to help others and sometimes help me amend a blog with more details.
This year I will be traveling to France, Italy, Spain, the Czech Republic, England and Ireland to name a few. I will also be hiking the Zugspitze (highest Alp in Germany) in August and trekking through parts of the French Alps in the Alsace region.
Most of the information in the RESOURCES tab will be how to coordinate non-traditional types of trips. I will have information available through several websites I use to help, “get a deal.” Sometimes that means using booking.com and tripadvisor.com and sometimes that means using AirBnb or Hostelbookers. I will be on FaceBook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, and Tumbler… for up-to-the-moment information.
In the AROUND TOWN page, I will concentrate on helpful tips and information for businesses, activities, restaurant reviews and fests. I hope this page with provide as much information as possible on “what’s happening” in our local Stuttgart and Baden-Württemberg area. Check this page out for “all things local” and “share” in the comments section.
We have several fests a year beginning in February with Fasching and Fastnet and ending the year with Weihnachtsmarkt (Christmas) markets. I will have an on-going list of when, where and what to expect for the fests in our area. Also, I will host a restaurant review, every month, somewhere in Baden-Württemberg. This page within a page will help all of us find the tasty gems in our community.
We love hiking. Especially my daughter, Katy and I. Germany is plush with hiking trails that are easily marked, beautifully cared for, and usually ends with a “food and beer hut”somewhere on the trail. What’s not to love? We have discovered many trails in the Black Forest and SwabianAlb. On this page, I will share sites I use to trek the trails and my take on a particular trail as well as coordinates, skill level and trail information.
I’m hoping hikers and trekkers will hop on this page and share their favorite trails too. Occasionally, I will have a JOIN me link when we will hike locally or attend a Volksmarch, these are a blast! Maybe you can join me there too.
So come travel with me and together we will discover authentic travel experiences throughout Europe as we share, chat and grow. Please feel free to CONTACT me with your suggestions and insights for my site. I eagerly await your input.
