  As we wrap up our time here in Germany (just six weeks left?!?!), I am cleaning out my desk. Yesterday I came across a folder of places I wanted to visit while we live in Germany. Despite making my way around a great bit of Germany, I never made it to the majority of […]

When I was planning our recent trip to Normandy, my husband mentioned wanting to see Mont St. Michel.
