I think this is an opportunity that many military families are hesitant to take advantage of because it is outside their ‘comfort zone’ because it’s not like flying on a ‘normal’ commercial plane. Don’t get me wrong you can also fly on a ‘normal’ commercial plane flying Space-A if you use the Rotator but there are [Read more...]Pin It
We are back in Germany!
Sorry last week I didn’t get any posts up but the week did not go as planned. We flew back to Atlanta/Alabama on Tuesday and were planning on staying in Alabama until Saturday but as with the nature of flying Space-A we had to leave early. So on Thursday (a few days before I was ready!) we had to say ‘see you later’ to Boo and drive to SC to catch a hop the next day. That in [Read more...]Pin It
Hey y’all! I’m still here just slacked on posting this week but for good reason. If you’ve been following me on Instagram or Twitter then you know that we have been back in the States since the 3rd of July. We’re here for several reasons, the main one being to bring Boo back to the States for college.

While it’s always super exciting to move overseas, at least for us, this is our first time we are having to actually live off base and live like the local culture and we’ve found there are quite a few differences! There are many differences living in Germany compared to Stateside life, even more so when you live off base. Living the authentic German lifestyle is very different that living in a house [Read more...]Pin It

Using props is a great way to help give a photo a little extra something. It can be done easily with simple props and pretty inexpensively if you have the right mindset about it. Ever since I started to pursue photography I have started to look at things around me in a different [Read more...]Pin It
Here are 10 tips for traveling in Germany to make it a bit easier!
Rest stop may or may not have toilet paper (like Japan), so bring your own just in case to prevent a ‘learned it the hard way’ lesson! Also let me forewarn you that the seats are made of stainless steel and if you happen to accidentally sit down on one on a cold day your in a for quite the surprise, it’s COLD!! The water was also [Read more...]Pin It

Last week we wanted to check out a local swimming pool but then realized that it was a German holiday, so it would be crowded. I did some quick research on the Internet and found Aqua World (Les Thermes) in Strassen, Luxembourg so we decided to go check it out. We found this was a GREAT idea because it was not a holiday in Luxembourg and we had the place pretty much to ourselves.
There is a large [Read more...]Pin It
