Kölle-Zoo Pet Store in Heidelberg

Apollo gets over-excited on walks and pulls ahead. With a collar, he always sounds like he’s having trouble breathing but doesn’t slow down whether we try to give him more or less room to roam. I was worried he’d hurt himself, and he was wearing down the fur at his Read more →

Alte Brücke (Old Bridge) & Pizza Hut on Memorial Day

Since we’d taken the Schlangenweg (winding path) coming down from the Philosophenweg (Philosopher’s Way) on Memorial Day, we came out near the Alte Brücke (Old Bridge) where I wanted to take pictures with me in them for my military installation review for Handling With Grace. My husband first took a Read more →

Return to the Philosophenweg (Philosophers’ Way) on Memorial Day

On Memorial Day, we spent the day out in Heidelberg. The main goal was to get some pictures for my military installation review for Handling With Grace since I did not have any of me in the city, which had been requested. I planned to get one on the Old Read more →

My Blogiversary: One Year of Overseas Adventures

I made my first post to Overseas Adventures on October 7th, 2011, about one month before we made our move. Originally I had planned to start the blog from the time we moved, but the moving process proved to be complicated enough that I decided to start early to give people Read more →

Meeting a Fellow Blogger at Café Gecko

In early April, fellow blogger Laura of German-American Abroad returned to Germany for a visit and invited me to meet up with her at Café Gecko, which would be the first time for both of us meeting someone we knew only from the blogosphere. I had never been to Café Read more →

Keeping Busy for Three Weeks

At the end of February through the first part of March, my husband was away for three weeks of training. While he’d left the car here, I didn’t have a license to drive in this country. The shuttle only ran a few times a day, which meant if I went Read more →

Photo a Day: August 22nd-26th

I took a few pictures this week but didn’t intentionally take pictures to the prompts for the Photo a Day Challenge. One fit for the the prompt from the day before it was taken, so I’ll post that. The others all come from other weeks or even months, but have Read more →

My First Thai Food Experience: Baan Thai

I’m almost positive I’d never had Thai food before I came to Germany. I did stop at a Thai restaurant with my husband while we were waiting on an oil change during our trip to Dallas, but I ordered crab rangoon (although I think they called it crab cream cheese). Read more →

Getting the Dogs Registered on Post and Getting Apollo Neutered

When we got the dogs’ international health certificates, we also had a tumor checked on Apollo and were told to have it taken off for testing if it didn’t go down on its own. By the time we’d been in Germany about ten days, it hadn’t changed. Apollo was also constantly Read more →
