Description

What is the Discover World Destinations Series?

Given the onset of COVID-19, most of us have had to cancel our vacations in 2020 and until the world is able to find a way to slow down the COVID-19 cases, its highly likely that various states in the US, along with many other countries, will continue to have travel restrictions and quarantine requirements, making it difficult to travel.

Not being able to physically travel to our desired locations does not mean that we cannot still find ways to appreciate and increase our travel knowledge in other ways in the meantime. Starting January 2021, we have started once a month Friday evening one-hour chat about travel to destinations around the world. We will invite guest speaker(s) who may be able to share fun, interesting and useful insights about the destination.  We will share insights about local culture, not to miss food to try, off the beaten path places and perhaps even interesting details that only insiders or locals know. Do also share your experience or knowledge about the destination if you have lived or visited there before.

We encourage you to start a travel journal with us, so that when we can travel again safely in the future and you decide to explore one of these destinations, you will already be in the know!

We plan to have our favorite wine or beverage during this fun chat.

Second Stop – Germany

CNN Travel describes Germany as follows: “Germany is one of Europe’s most fascinating and varied destinations. For one, its cities are incredible: Berlin’s hip status is assured thanks to a young, diverse population and a nightlife that makes London and New York look tame by comparison; Munich has retained its historic Bavarian charm; while Frankfurt’s buzzing financial district and world-class museums bring their own brand of magic. Outside of the cities, the real Germany comes alive. Long-distance hikes in the spectacular Black Forest, refreshing swims in the lakes around the capital and sweeping sands on the northern coast all showcase an unexpected side of the country that’s just waiting to be explored.”

Situated in the heart of Europe, Germany has plenty of amazing tourist attractions and unique sights to offer and if you do a search on top places to see in Germany, there is a certainly long list of places you “must not miss”. But, if you just travel to see spots you read on a guidebook, you may not actually have a  true authentic experience and discover true gems that you really should not miss. Come spend a fun evening chatting with these amazing women, born and raised in Germany but now living in Seattle, who are willing to share their insights on what you should really do, see or experience when you are in Germany.
