Pictures of this guesthouse float around facebook periodically in lists like “10 Hotels You Must Visit in Your Lifetime!” And quite frankly, this is a hotel you should try to visit in your lifetime, if […]

Some Guy’s Hat sports a pin of the Ulm Münster Cathedral, noting its height of 161 meters. This past weekend, we headed to Ulm to visit this Cathedral, which boasts the highest spire in the world.
