Episode044: When Your Christmas Is Like A Hallmark Movie

New Year, same show!

First of all, thank you so much for following along on our journey of expat living and travel adventures. We are so thankful for you! Second, Happy New Year!  If you missed it here is our Christmas/New Year Card for you!

Our first episode of the year recaps our Christmas holidays spent in Germany! If you are wondering why we like to jet out for a Christmasy trip around the holidays, definitely listen to our last Episode043. Also, there are a few references to our last Christmas in Germany. If you want to catch up before listening to this one, check out Episode023 and Episode024.

Just like last year, our cousin graciously opened up her home for us to housesit and catsit while she was away. There were a few kinks in our plans, but overall it was a lovely stay. During that time, we also made it to a few nearby cities/countries: Stuttgart, Esslingen, Baden-Baden, Neustadt, Trier, and Luxembourg City, Luxembourg.

    Guys! Andorra is a country between Spain & Portugal. It’s smaller than Luxembourg. 🙂 Andorra is approximately 468 sq km, while Luxembourg is approximately 2,586 sq km.

    Also, Grimm is surely based on fairy tales by the brothers Grimm, right? 😉
