Cooking with Chef Jan

Now that we have our Spargel from the market (see last week’s post), it’s time to head to the lovely Chef Jan’s kitchen to see what we can do with it! Thank you for watching!   I had a lot of fun shooting these videos with my friend Chef Jan.  The hardest part came down to figuring out […]

Mainz Walking Tour-Part Six

Traveling down from the citadel we rounded the corner to view the Romisches Theater ruins. Then we made our way to the Museum for antike Schiffahrt or the Roman Antique Ships Museum.

Mainz Walking Tour Part One

I recently decided to take advantage of the USO Wiesbaden’s walking tour in Mainz. While the main idea was to help orientate newcomers to the city, I had an ulterior motive in going.
