Hi, I’m Julie.  I love to travel and find new adventures, whether around the globe or in my own backyard.  I’m glad you’re here!

I grew up on the East Coast and made Charleston SC my home until I got married and immediately after moved across the world to Stuttgart Germany.  I truly believe life is meant to celebrate, so celebrate we did and haven’t stopped.  I love living in Europe for the opportunity to easily explore, the access to lots of new and interesting cultures, great festivals big or small that pop up around us, and of course, the delicious cappuccinos!

If you know me, you probably know I cannot start my day without a good cappuccino.  We have a manual espresso machine at home and make them every morning!  I am also always dreaming up our next adventure – be it a weekend getaway, flight to a foreign land, or a fun activity right here in Stuttgart.  Culture, food, wine, and festivals are our big pulls.  I absolutely adore stumbling upon a local festival in a new place.  I love planning our trips and even more so, enjoying them!

I hope you enjoy reading about our adventures – and maybe learn about a new part of the world, too.  To the good life!
