A night at the circus hostel

circus hostel Berlin

Berlin, Germany has long been on my list of travel destinations. From the history to the culture, I have known that Berlin is not a city to be missed. I was able to visit Berlin a few weekends ago and I stayed at the Circus Hostel Berlin. I feel like it’s quite fitting that I stayed there as I actually used to work at a circus company back in the United States on the side for about four years. Yes I can make you a balloon dog and also paint your face like Spiderman. I have acquired some random talents over the years.

Anyway, back to Berlin! So I stayed at the Circus Hostel in Berlin and definitely enjoyed myself. I found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. The hostel overall was nice and clean. So many people have this idea that hostels are dirty. Perhaps they assume that when you pay less than hotel, you get less than that. However that is often not the case with most of the hostels I stay in. Circus Hostel in Berlin was clean and well-decorated.

24 hours in Dresden

24 hours in Dresden

Have you heard of the city of Dresden? It sits just a few hours south of Berlin, Germany. I was very lucky to spend 24 hours in Dresden and I had a blast. The city really is one that everyone should add to their Germany list. It’s a place that I would really love to spend some more time in.

How I arrived

As some of you know, I am spending my summer working as an aupair in the Czech Republic. You can read a little life update here. I have traded sunshine and tapas for amazing beer and green countryside. Oh and I’m not far at all from Prague, which is amazing.

Women around the world: Kristin in Germany

women around the world

Welcome to my new series entitled Women Around the World. In a way, I’m getting back to my blog’s roots with this series. When I first began this blog almost two years ago, I would interview different women and feature photos of them in dresses. When I moved to Spain last fall, I stopped doing that. An international move took up much of my time and energy, as you can imagine. I knew less people in my new city and I traveled more. My intention was also to blog about travel, so those posts took priority. 

As a blogger and influencer, I’m always meeting other amazing women via the internet. So I’ve decided to take up these interviews again but with a travel twist. My blog really has transitioned into a travel blog and I want to keep it that way as well. Whether she has the ability to travel often or not, every woman can teach us something and offer us travel tips about where they live.

5 favorite things about Munich

It was hard to pick just 5 things that I loved about Munich. The truth is, I really love this Bavarian city in Southern Germany. The people, the food, the beer and the history were all simply amazing. If you’re planning a trip to Germany, Munich is not to be missed.

My sister city

Did you all know that Munich is one of the sister cities to my hometown of Cincinnati, Ohio? That just means that our city governments have a special relationship and that we do exchanges sometimes. They have a high school exchange program and a teacher one too. Sometimes they host events in Cincinnati too. There’s a website all about it that you can visit here.
