In Jag Lever, Travel



Germany was dreamy.












I don’t usually have the funds or opportunity to jet off to any place I’d like to, but when I found flights to Frankfurt round trip for $450 I jumped at the opportunity to visit one of my all time dream destinations, Heidelberg. Nestled in southern Germany, Heidelberg is a quaint college town filled with stunning architecture, great food (lots of schnitzel and pilsners) and many things to see!

Noelle and I stayed at a gorgeous boutique hotel called Heidelberg Suites, which everyone was so so so friendly and accommodating. They had an amazing breakfast spread every morning in which I fell deeply in love with milchkaffe (cafe au lait, or “milk coffee”). We explored the streets of Heidelberg, met up with a distant relative of mine (Matthias) and got to drive all through some other surrounding tiny German towns including Ziegelhausen which is where my Grandmother grew up.

We drove up the mountains on a beautiful sunny day, listening to Regenbogen (a German radio station, and also my favorite German word), did a brewery tasting, got fresh bread and cheese and ate it on top of a mountain overlooking Heidelberg. Seriously the most perfect day I’ve had in so long.

One of our favorite parts of the trip was meeting our new friend Dennis who was kind enough to drive Noelle & I to Berg Eltz, a castle about 2 and a half hours out from Heidelberg. We stopped at Mcdonalds on the way, there was literally no other food anywhere for most of the drive but this was okay especially with Noelle because German Mcdonalds has friggin VEGGIE BURGERS. The entire experience was so much nicer than any American mc d’s. So funny.

The trip was easily one of my favorites ever and I can’t wait to go back and explore more of this beautiful country. xo

    I was able to get a ticket to Paris for around that same amount! Tickets to Europe are crazy cheap lately, I don’t know why, but I hope it stays that way!

    Germany looks absolutely beautiful, glad you had a good time!

    I’m so in love with your blog. Your sense of style is so absolutely gorgeous!
    I was wondering about the details for some of your outfits in this post, the red deep v dress, and the green what looks like velvet dress.
