What is it like to live in a city?
I have never really lived in a city before. Every morning I wake up (yes, even after 8 months living there) and realize, oh wow! I live in Berlin. As a child, this is nothing I could have ever imagined. As a young adult, I dreamed of purchasing some land, preferably on the side of a mountain with a great view, build myself an off-grid cabin and garden and become a recluse writer/gardener with minimal contact with the outside world. As an “adult”
One of my favorite parts of traveling is that first day in a new city/country. There is a mystery about a new place that gives me a thrill like no other. Then again, there is nothing like arriving in a new city and instantly becoming super sick! Unfortunately, a recent trip to Vienna is the inspiration for the post.
While being sick is no fun there are precautions/comforts you can take with you as you travel in an attempt to give you some comfort while you let your body heal.
My sweet summer puppy. How I have loved you since I was 8 years old, how I still love you at 24. You were an old man, even at 1 years old.

I found myself in Munich almost by accident; an opportunity arose and I took it! Thankfully I had a wonderful guide who showed me the sights and introduced me to some unique experiences. Here are my top 10 favorites from the times I spent there. Now, off to your adventures!

Whether you plan to visit Marrakech for a week or more, or if you are staying for just a couple of days, here are some tips to get you on your way. Upon your arrival, you will constantly have offers from taxi drivers and young boys wanting to be your guides. These folks can be helpful but if you are more interested in making your own way (and saving a bit of money otherwise used to tip these guys) I would highly suggest
Landing in Marrakech, the sunlight lit a bright sand-colored city sitting in a bowl of mountains on the edge of a desert. There is something calming about the symmetry I could see from the airplane windows, but this is where this atmosphere ended.
