Travel Germany: Kiel with Jordan

Travel Germany: Kiel with Jordan

October 21, 2021

Season 6, Episode 4.  In the Travel Germany series, different places across Germany are featured in interviews with expats who relocated there. Today, we learn about Kiel! 

Jordan Wagner takes us all the way up north near the Danish border to the city of Kiel, a harbor city that is a paradise for boat lovers. Jordan used to think she could never love anywhere like she loves southern Germany, but Kiel converted her to love the north even more. She let's us in on the things that made her fall in love with it.

Not only are there great beaches and events to explore in Kiel itself - it's also a great jumping off point for so many day trips, like to Hamburg, Sylt, or even Denmark!

For links to the places and restaurants mentioned, head on over to the blog.

Travel Germany: Görlitz with Tessa and Lauren

Travel Germany: Görlitz with Tessa and Lauren

June 25, 2020

Season 4, Episode 13. In the Travel Germany series, different places across Germany are featured in interviews with expats who relocated there. 

Tessa and Lauren are two Americans who both moved to Görlitz, a small city where you can stroll on over a bridge and find yourself in Poland. Görlitz is small but mighty, because it's actually the largest city in Germany to not be bombed in World War 2. It's full of charm, history, architecture, and local culture, and it's captured the hearts of many a Hollywood director - so many movies have been filmed in Görlitz, it's gotten the nickname Görliwood.

For all the amazing ideas shared in this episode, click here.
