We are a family of 5 Americans living in Germany. Dad is in the military and Mom is a biology teacher at the base university. The kids are ages 12,10 and 7. We love traveling and are taking full advantage of living in Germany. Dad is half-French so we frequently travel to France to visit family in the NW. We prefer to bring the newest member of our family Pumpkin, she is a female Australian cattle dog and is 3 years old. The whole family loves to volksmarch and swim, Mom and Dad love to run and are training for a couple of marathons this year. We love exploring local culture especially local cuisine, this is our second time around in Europe but this time we are adults. Our goal is to visit as many places as possible before we head back to the U.S.
