I asked for an aisle seat, yet here I am staring out the window on my Delta Flight. Thank goodness I brought “the kit,” a small oriental bag from China Town in Los Angeles. Stuffed inside lies an eye mask, one set of earplugs, and headphones. I guess after 40+ flights in your life you would be in favor of actually being comfortable during your entire mile high journey. As a tall person I offer my five reasons as to why swapping that window seat of yours for the aisle is a good idea. And as far as that scene … Continue reading Five Reasons to Swap Your Window Seat for the Aisle

For next 9 months I live in Erfurt, Germany. Such a beautiful city where I have started my Konditorei (pastry) internship at Cafe Lobenstein which is not gluten free, but on the plus side uses organic flour.

This is done over a period of … Continue reading Konditorei (Pastry) Internship at Cafe Lobenstein and finding gluten free Stollen! – Erfurt, Germany

Class at my Language School, the Carl Duisberg … Continue reading Radolfzell, Germany: “Ich lerne Deutsch!”
