  • Why I Went Vegan 2 days ago I went vegan in early March of this year. A few people in my life have asked me why. I’ve created this post as an easy-to-read (and hopefully easy to google translate!) response. With the exception of reviewing vegan restaurants while traveling, it’s unlikely that this topic will come up again....
  • Pay-to-Pee: Public Toilets in Germany 1 week ago Pay toilets: like pay-to-play, but worse.

Jessie's insights and views on the world are not only unique, they also remain relevant to the lives of people living in and out of the United States. I would highly recommend this blog for those already in Germany, people thinking about living in Germany, and for those who have just heard of Germany. Everyone should give it a read!
