Fun fact: @wework is basically my second home in Berlin hah. ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿผโ€๐Ÿ’ป Such a cool shared space, entrepreneurial community & ermahgerd the best free breakfast on Mondays! ๐Ÿฅ‘๐ŸŒ Not sure if I could ever go back to a regular office environment.. ๐Ÿ˜œ #livedifferent #weworkberlin at WeWork Hackescher Markt

Sunday in Berlin. ๐Ÿ‚ Walked around our quiet neighborhood.. grabbed iced flat white coffees from @bonanzacoffee, snapped photos of the changing yellow leaves & soaked up the warm sunshine. xx at Prenzlauer Berg, Berlin, Germany

Eerie afternoon exploring the remains of a large concentration camp. ๐Ÿฅ€ Just 35 kilometers north of Berlin by train & a twenty minute walk through a quiet cobblestone neighborhood sits Sachenhausen. With only 2 hours to wander around before the gates locked at sunset, we took a veryyy slow lap around the dusty gravel foot paths. Not an easy place to visit.. you'll be shocked, you'll be sickened, you'll walk out wondering 'why?' PS - Also, it's hard to believe people in the neighborhood choose to live right next door to this eerie site. What a somber setting. ๐Ÿ‚ at Sachenhausen Concentration Camp

If you think travel is dangerous, try routine. ๐Ÿ‘ฝ ๐ŸŒ: Teufelsberg, an old US spy listening tower in the middle of the woods. About an hour from Berlin by train + hiking. xx ๐Ÿ“ธ: @joeyvonedwins at Teufelsberg, Brandenburg, Germany

Cheers to the dreamers and the doers. Cheers to you, Berlin. xx. โœจ Joey and I were walking home tonight & talking about how if we had to move to the states.. it would feel like moving backwards in life. Something about Europe just feels right.. Berlin especially. ๐Ÿ‡ฉ๐Ÿ‡ชYes, we miss our friends & family like cray cray, but there's something about this place.. the cozy, laid back vibe and inspiring, creative people. In our minds, there's more to life than settling down, having kids and feeling comfortable. Here's to hopefully many more nights in this charming city.. โœจ PS: Thanks for showing us around, @tabitham03! Wouldn't be here without you. at Berlin Festival of Lights

That one time @joeyvonedwins and I backpacked Europe for 2 months and made Greece our grand finale! ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ท Some of you may know that.. we loved Europe so much, I never went back home to the states after our trip wrapped hah. We have soooo many fun (and not so fun ๐Ÿ˜ณ) travel memories and tips to share with you.. oh my goodness it's a little overwhelming! New @youtube videos are coming soon. ๐ŸŽฅ Enjoy our teaser & click my profile like to subscribe. Keep the travel stoke aliveee. xx ๐Ÿค™๐Ÿผ at Mykonos

Lazy Sunday here in Berlin.. ๐Ÿ‡ฉ๐Ÿ‡ช PS - any castles that we should definitely check out while in Germany? I have a running list saved from @topgermanyphoto & random travel blogs.. but just in case we're missing any hah. Joey and I are planning a "castle trip" towards the end of October for our four year anniversary. Time fliesss. โœจ at Teufelsberg, Brandenburg, Germany

Toured an underground bunker from WWII today. ๐Ÿ”ฆ @joeyvonedwins and I learned that much of Berlin is built on old rubble from the war.. the hills in the park just one train stop away from us are made of debris from bombed homes & buildings. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ Also freaky.. apparently 3,000 unexploded bombs are still buried in the earth under Berlin. Construction workers found one this past Monday & folks had to evacuate! C-r-a-z-i-n-e-s-s. ๐Ÿ‡ฉ๐Ÿ‡ช #expatlife at Berliner Unterwelten e.V.

Cheers to fall, crunchy leaves, and dirndls hah. ๐Ÿ‚ #tbt If you're thinking about visiting Oktoberfest in Munchen, definitely invest in the Bavarian traditional outfits (liederhosen for boys and dirndls for girls). They're a little pricey (~100+ โ‚ฌ), but you'll feel left out without one! That and they make for a fun, lifelong souvenir. ๐Ÿ‡ฉ๐Ÿ‡ช I was suuuper hesitant to drop that amount of cash moolah on something I'd maybe only wear once.. but it's such a fun memory to have tucked away in my closet. PS - They also have tailored liederhosen for girls! Whatever floats your boat. ๐Ÿ˜ŠIt took forever to figure out what I size I was.. the dirndl was either too big up top or too tight around the side zipper. Be prepared to spend some time finding the perfect fit! #girlslovetravel at Munich, Germany

Berlin vibes. ๐Ÿ“€๐Ÿ’ฟ๐Ÿ“€ PS - starting language classes tomorrow night! Time to finally brush up on my German hah. Paid for two months of night classes.. so we'll see where that get us. @joeyvonedwins is already SUPER impressive with how far he's progressed after 1.5 months of full-time German language school. Proud of youu! ๐Ÿ‡ฉ๐Ÿ‡ช #expatlife at Berlin, Germany

Teufelsberg.. aka Devils's Mountain. ๐Ÿ‘ฝ Had the day off for our first ever German holiday.. Reunification Day! ๐Ÿ‡ฉ๐Ÿ‡ช Joey and I hiked 30 minutes (in the rain) through the Grunewald Forest to an old abandoned U.S. spy station. The tower sits on an eerie "mountain" made from rubble of homes that were bombed down in WWII.. a super dark, artsy day trip โœจ PS - heard it's #NationalBoyfriendDay. Thanks for being the best adventure buddy there is @joeyvonedwins xx at Teufelsberg, Brandenburg, Germany

3,000 miles, 12 different campgrounds.. ๐Ÿ• A few months ago, @joeyvonedwins and I road tripped from Montana to Florida! ๐ŸŒด Click my profile link to learn more about where we camped across the USA. . Thanks again @kampgroundsofamerica for the road trip of a lifetime! We loved this Florida campground (an old fish camp!) in particular that sat along a peaceful lake. Adventure on.. โœจ๐Ÿš— #KOACamping #sponsored at Lake Panasoffkee I-75 KOA

Train spotting in the neighborhood. โœจ @joeyvonedwins and I could spend hours standing & watching the colorful trains speed by.. we even sleep with the windows cracked open to listen to them crawl down the tracks deep into the night. . The constant rush of sound always reminds me of our tiny NYC apartment that sat above a busy street in the Upper East Side.. the bustling trains put me riiiight to sleep. ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜ด (PS who else can't sleep without background noise? Besides the trains, I also use a sleeping app that plays rain drops!) at Prenzlauer Berg, Berlin, Germany
