Announcing Our Trip To Germany!!!

In 2014 we spent nearly a month in Berlin with a few side trips to other parts of Germany including Leipzig, Freiburg and Frankfurt. It is one of those countries that we felt could potentially be a base for us in the future. The food, the culture and all of the travel activities fit like a glove. We’re thrilled to announce we’re heading back again soon! In just a couple of days we’ll be exploring the Northeastern part of the country including Brandenburg and Mecklenburg Western Pomerania. The goal for this trip is to immerse ourselves in as many cultural activities and sample as many regional foods as we possibly can. We sure hope you’ll join us 🙂

Announcing Our Trip To Germany Travel Video Transcript:

So Hello from my parent’s backyard here in Brampton, Canada. This is our last weekend in Canada for a while. We’re actually traveling back to Germany this weekend. And we wanted to announce the trip and tell you what we’re going to be doing over there.

So basically the idea is that we’ll be traveling to the Northeastern part of the country. We’ll be visiting Brandenburg and Mecklenburg Western Pomerania. And the whole idea is to go in search of unique customs and traditions that exist in that part of the country.

So what is particularly exciting about this trip is that we’re going to be doing most of it on the road. It is going to be a road trip by car. We’re going to be traveling to a lot of off-the-beaten-path types of destinations and going to places we’ve never seen before.

So some of the things we’re going to try while we are there include punting. So apparently that is a flat boat that is propelled by a pole. So we’ll be learning to punt in the canals, in the forest. Hey, if we can kayak and canoe then I think we can give it. It’ll be fun why not.

Yeah, we’re also going to be sampling lots of pickles because apparently this region in Germany is known for producing pickles. We like our pickles. We do.

Um, what else are we doing? We’ll be doing some hiking along the Chalky cliffs in Ruegen Island and also visiting a few different woodwork shops where they still make toys by hand.

So, very cultural activities that you normally wouldn’t think of when traveling in Germany. But it should be fun.


So let us know if you have any suggestions for thing to do in Brandenburg and Mecklenburg Western Pomerania. It is a bit of a mouthful isn’t it. It is and we’re heading there soon. See you soon. See, you.

And in the meantime, we have a few more videos from New York City coming out.

This is part of our Travel in Germany series. We’re making a series of videos showcasing German culture, German arts, German foods, German religion, German cuisine and German people.

All photos and video taken by Samuel Jeffery (Nomadic Samuel) and Audrey Bergner (That Backpacker).

Germany is so small, make your trip by bicycles. That makes more sense than by car! Or plan to do day trips with bicycles.

Super trip to a less visited area of Germany. Sound great.

20alphabet says:

Have fun, and be careful of the police… especially when they demand to see “Yaw paypuss, pleeease!” They can be real Nazi’s! Seriously, when on the road, find a place to do a top speed video!

biglostboy says:

dada asdada says:

How exciting, Germany is probably my fave country to visit

morbvsclz says:

I can highly recommend Rügen, the largest german Island, right at  the polish border. Especially the Jasmund National Park is absolutely fantastic. At least it was when I was there 5 years ago 😀

And of course the castles. Especially Sanssouci. It’s pretty touristy there, but that usually means there is a reason for it.

A Boat trip on the many rivers and lakes there is also always nice. I’ve been on the boat from Potdsam to Werder (Havel), but there are other routes available of course. And afaik they are on a regular schedule, so they work a bit like a bus service.

Love Love says:

Love your videos 🙂 if you gonna be in europe u should visit Portugal . have a great time in Germany :)))

evogardens says:

Hey Guy’s,
YEAH, road trip! Sounds awesome.
I used to hate pickles. When I was a kid,
I would remove the pickles from my Maccas burgers and stick them on the Windows or chuck them up on the ceiling. Now I love em.

CaseyRuddTV says:

Looking forward to the videos from your trip! I hope to travel to and eventually live in Germany one of these days, but until then I will live vicariously through your adventures. Have fun you two!
