❤️Aubrey was a Speech-Language Pathologist, Donnie was graphic designer, but we both had a dream to travel the world and experience cultures. After three years of being married and dreaming about if something like this great adventure would be possible, we decided to quit the rat race and take on the world. We sold everything we had, quit our jobs, and took off! After 9 months of aimless and nonstop travel, we now get to fulfill our dreams of living abroad as expats as we move to Germany!

  1. Freiburg was called "Schwarzwaldhaupstadt" (Capitol of the Black Forrest)
    And it was many years "Vorderösterreich" under the Family of the Habsburger an the University of Freiburg was founded 1457 from Erzherzog Albrecht VI, and in 1817 the Großherzog Ludwig from Baden gives budgetary for the univetsity. (bevore they think of closing the University)
    There for in gratitude, it named "Albert-Ludwigs-Universität"

  2. For years the Federal Cancellor Helmut Kohl's car was stick in the Bächle. (in the Herrenstraße, one street with Bächle which was big enough for cars)
    And the Federal Cancellor Gerhard Schröder stepped in the Bächle as he has a meeting with the French President François Mitterand in Freiburg

  3. Not a suggestion for a clock, but one of my favorite evening trips when I was at Ramstein was a simple trip to the observation deck in Eulenbis. Look up Eulenkopfwarte on google maps. It is a great spot for some b-roll intro/outro footage.

  4. Hey guys, if the travel is possible go see Colmar and Munster in Alsace. Can be done in a day, depends of course what you're going to do all day? Maybe two days better?
    The food there is amongst the best in Europe. Ferme Auberge e.g.
    And in the Black Forrest near Freiburg is the Kaiserstuhl. Visit the villages surrounding this hill. It's so beautiful there and the part of Germany with the most sunny days a year. More than Denver and Miami.

    or Google just this: kuckucksuhr handarbeit and pick.

  5. You 2 seem so friendly and nice. I've watched a number of your videos, and I commented on one, but perhaps you didn't read it. It was just a comment about the word "whenever". You both tend to use the word incorrectly, when the word should be "when". For example, at 9:49 in the video, one of you said "…whenever we drove into the Black Forest …", yet it is obvious by your sentence that you were talking about a single event – so "whenever" is NOT the correct word. It should be "when". I'm actually surprised how many Americans make that error – i hear it on TV all of the time. My suggestion, if you want to be grammatically correct, is to stop using the word "whenever" – use "when" instead. As I pointed out in the previous comment – the German version is "als" versus "wenn". They are not interchangeable when talking in the past, nor are "when" & "whenever". Just FYI. I'm not being mean, and I hope you don't take it as such. If I were making such an error, I'd want someone to tell me, so that I can learn from my error. You're a cute couple. Have a good day!

  6. Nettes Video. Schöne Eindrücke vom Freiburger Münster ! Nur warum habt ihr außer diesem und dem Marktplatz so wenig von Freiburg angeschaut und gezeigt? Da gibt es gewiss noch viel mehr zu sehen! Aber ihr wolltet ja noch weiter noch Gengenbach. Scheint ein interessanter, sehenswerter Ort zu sein mit einem Adventskalenderhaus und einer uralten Fasend (=Karneval) tradition.
    Soweit, so gut. Ich würde mir nur wünschen, ihr würdet alle Ortsnamen zumindest einmal so aussprechen wie sie eigentlich heißen. Und bitte immer den richtigen Namen einmal einblenden. Also Freiburg und nicht Frreibörrg und Gengenbach und nicht Gingenbak.
    Größere und berühmtere Orte haben häufig eigene Aussprachen und Schreibweisen in unterschiedlichen Sprachen. Wir Deutschen sagen z.B auch Mailand und Lissabon und Moskau statt Milano und Lisboa und Moskwa. So sagt ihr Amis halt Cologne und Munich und sprecht andere Städte wie Hämbörrg und Börrlin und Fränkförrt aus. Aber es klingt einfach schauderhaft. :-((
    Gerade wollte ich schon jammern, dass ihr nach einem Jahr in Deutschland immer noch kein ch sprechen könnt, da habe ich im Abspann gehört, wie du, Donnie, was von Gingenbach (statt Gengenbach mit e, immerhin halb richtig) gesagt hast! Hurra, dein erstes ch ! Unbedingt weiter üben!

    Ich frage mich wirklich, was die Amis ihren Kindern antun, wenn sie ihnen ermöglichen, in der Schule ganz ohne Fremdsprachen aufzuwachsen.
    Das ist ein Verbrechen!
    In Deutschland unvorstellbar!
    Da fängt man schon im Kindergarten an etwas Englisch zu lernen. Außerdem hat ein Großteil der Kinder einen Migrationshintergrund und wächst sowieso zweisprachig auf. Je früher ein Kind lernt, auch ungewohnte, nicht zur Muttersprache gehörende Laute zu bilden, desto besser.
    Ihr dagegen, die ihr Deutsch als Erwachsene ohne Fremdsprachenübung lernt, seid da klar im Nachteil! 🙁

  7. What makes the Freiburger Muenster interesting is that it is the only German gothic cathedral that actually got finished in time! Most of the large gothic cathedrals saw big construction work in the 19th and early 20th century, for instance to finish the church towers (Regensburg: 1859/1869, Cologne: 1880, Ulm: 1890). But the tower of the Freiburger Muenster was finished 500 years early in 1330.

  8. The Glas Windows are sponsored by different guilds (Smith, Bakers, Miners etc.)
    The Freiburger Münster was mostly payed from the cityzens, not from the aristrocracy.
    Surely the Zähringer started the building but the citizens endet it.

  9. Ein Besuch von Schwäbisch Gmünd würde euch auch sehr gefallen. Es hat sehr viele mitteralterliche Aspekte jedoch ist auch eine total sanierte junge Stadt geworden.
    Die Baumeister Familie Parler haben die Kirchen ( Münster) in Ulm, Freiburg, Basel, Schwäbisch Gmünd und die Karlsbrücke in Prag erbaut. Die Familie Parler hatte im 14. Jahrhundert vier Kirchenbaumeister/ Architekten deren Künste wir noch heute 700 Jahre später betrachten dürfen.
    Also kommt ins schöne Schwäbisch Gmünd, es würde sich auf jeden Fall lohnen!

  10. Die Endung "le" ist eine Verkleinerung des Wortes.
    Bach – Bächle, Haus – Häusle,
    Tür – Türle, Kanne – Kännle.
    Es zeigt an, dass der Gegenstand irgendwie kleiner ist. Im Süddeutschen Raum ist es verbreitet, bin mir aber nicht sicher wie es in anderen Gegenden ist.

  11. theese creeks in the streets exist in Aachen too, although they aren't called "Bächle", because "Bächle" is the local dialect of Freiburg for "little creek" or "creeky". I think theese creeks have been there bevore Aachen or Freiburg were buildt and just got integrated into the streets.
    in winter and autum they send the water through a sewer, because the watercourse could get blocked from leaves and ice and flood the streets.

  12. Seeing your wonderfool footage I was wondering if you also have the problem when picking shots: Something looks so nice and medieval and cute – and then there's this bright red garbagecan right in the middle

  13. dont know what made them bomb this City to the ground in the WW2…there was non military production or anything else..maybe just with dresden to bomb for fun…gosh…so glad we didnt had to expierience that dark Age

  14. About the "Bächle": Cooling might be a side effect, but they are dating back to the middle ages and the water was meant for extinguishing water and for the cattle.
    Yes, there is not always water in them, but that is rather because they are easier to clean this way.
    Additional info: The local saying goes: Anyone from elsewhere who accidentally steps in one of the "Bächle" will eventually end up marrying a local.
