Wandering around Hallau

Sometimes in Switzerland you’re on the train and you see these beautiful fields- all different color greens. But SOMETIMES you’ll see bright patches of yellow flowers and it looks so colorful and amazing! We (my fiance, his brother and his brother’s girlfriend) decided it…

Interlaken, Switzerland

Interlaken is tied with Zermatt as my favorite place to travel in Switzerland. It has medium mountains, big mountains, a sweet city, Thun over yonder, and two lakes. The hiking is absolutely out of this world. I am always in awe here. The first…

Schaffhausen, Switzerland

Pronounced Chef- how- zen. Or, if you’re a local, you say CHEFFHOOZUH. Hahaha. No, but really. Also, yell it when you say it. Ok now I’m being mean. It’s just been a while since I’ve heard so much Swiss German. Incidently, that’s what they speak…

Austin- I’m leaving… on a jet plane

Goodbye Austin  Ahhhh bittersweetness. For real though. This is the hardest part about moving (MOVING, like leaving for a long ass time) abroad. You don’t know when you’ll be back. You don’t know if you’ll EVER be back home. Home. Wait, what is home?…

Cheese and Honey

Have you ever had cheese and honey? I was first introduced in Austin at a wine shop, but I was like… in my 20’s. That’s not ok. If you’ve never had cheese and honey together you better drop whatever you’re doing and try it…
