Someone PINCH ME! I’ve been working on this new website for over A YEAR and am so excited to finally debut it to everyone!!! I have to thank the Prince, my parents, and my siblings for always being so supportive, looking over my new site, giving me advice, and overall just encouraging me. There was so much thought and attention to detail put into making Wayfaring With Wagner, and I hope you’re as excited as me for this next chapter!

Operas, Baroque, and Destruction // Dresden

It seems like an unlikely combination – operas, baroque, and destruction. Yet, the history of Dresden, Germany is complex, sad, and beautiful – a story of rising from the ashes. Before WWII, Dresden was the epicenter of German culture and art. As the seventh-largest city in Germany, Dresden was frequently host to Richard Wagner’s newest…

Gingerbread Houses with a Side of Milk // Goslar

I feel like my relationship with gingerbread houses is quite similar to one of my favorite childhood books If You Give a Mouse a Cookie. If you give Jordan a gingerbread house, she’ll ask for a fairy tale German town.

An American + A German // Our Love Story

One of the most commonly asked questions on my blog and via email is “Tell me your German-American love story with the Prince!” To understand my love story with the Prince, you have to go all the way back to May 2014! Remember that ball I attended with my best guy friend (see the post…

A Day in Cienfuegos

Our day in Cienfuegos should actually be called our morning in Cienfuegos! After a night at sea, we arrived around 6 am in Cienfuegos. Unfortunately, in order to reach our next port of call (and arrive back in Miami on time), we only had about 6 hours to explore the city. Before leaving for Cuba,…
