There is nothing better than sitting at a cafe, having a spritz, and feeling part of a new city. Cheers, Prost, Cin Cin! Born in Phoenix, AZ -> living in Bernkastel-Kues, Germany. My family and I have spent nearly 6 years living in Italy and Germany. We love to travel and experience new places through food and wine. We have two tiny travelers, so I know the ins and outs of traveling with babies, children, and teens. Happy to share my expertise as you plan your next adventure!
