You could also spend the holidays with Santa and roller coasters at the Christmas market in Tivoli Gardens, Copenhagen’s magical amusement park, open through December 31.

by Ronnie Juhans contributing writer As the unpredictable German Winter weather approaches, the temptation to stay indoors and keep your fingers and thumbs fit with the latest technology increases. Indoor bouldering is an excellent way to maintain or increase your level of fitness no matter what the conditions outside. Bouldering is a form of rock climbing that is performed on small rock formations or artificial rock walls, known as boulders, without the use of ropes or harnesses. This sport is a full body workout that has increased in popularity because it is fun, challenging, increases strength and stamina, and offers a social aspect. While bouldering, you do not encounter people tuning out everything around them by blasting music in their ears or cruising through social media while on a treadmill, stationary bike or any other piece of equipment as you would in a gym. Bouldering requires no more equipment than a chalk bag and a good pair of climbing shoes, both

• Clothing that is loose, comfortable and unrestrictive. • Climbing shoes that have been properly fitted. Otherwise I suggest renting them for a small fee at the climbing hall. • A pair of sandals or flip flops. • Euro to be on the safe side in case your plastic is not accepted.

• Read and abide the rules of the facility. Some of them can be very restrictive for safety reasons. • Take breaks frequently to avoid overexertion and injury. • Don’t wear climbing shoes outside, in the restrooms or while taking a food and drink break. • Don’t allow children to be unattended at any time.

of which you can rent for a low price at the climbing center. If you enjoy this sport enough to invest into your own equipment, I do not recommend purchasing shoes online. The lack of proper fit can make your bouldering experience miserable. Seek expert advice for a perfect fitting shoe. If you are afraid of heights and cannot bring yourself to trust another person on the ground with your life (belayer), this form of climbing allows you to stay within your comfort zone, bail out whenever you are too fatigued, not feeling it anymore, and know that you have a crash pad below that will absorb that unexpected fall. The featured climbing centers in this article are within a short distance of the KMC and offer a variety of routes based on skill levels, strength building areas, group programs, kid’s programs, slacklines, outdoor bouldering, yoga and saunas, as well as food and drink bistros.

Two of the most impressive climbing gyms that I’ve had the opportunity to work out, have fun and enjoy an amazing atmosphere is Rocklands. Located in Saarlouis and St. Wendel. The visual design of the facilities alone will crank up your adrenaline and can be a bit overwhelming to newbies. However, there are regular introductory courses provided by highly-trained staff that will take away the jitters and build your confidence in no time. The bouldering halls are state of the art with a variety of routes that will challenge your strength and coordination from the beginning. Taking a fall will only injure your ego due to the crash pads that provide a lot of protection and let you bounce back and continue to work out and have fun. Rocklands have a kid’s climbing area, gymnastics, special events, excellent group rates, and bistros that are open late enough to have dinner without having to scramble around town for a good meal.

The Ramstein Outdoor Recreation climbing wall is the ultimate indoor activity for outdoor enthusiasts all year long! ODR’s $28 million facility offers something for climbers of all abilities. The rock wall is higher than 30 feet in some areas, and with its textured compositematerial rock wall, offers climbing routes for all abilities. For beginners, there is ropeless small bouldering, with big yellow padding for safety. Experienced climbers can take on the inverted tower. To climb the wall at Ramstein, you are required to take a 45-minute “Climbing 101” to learn the basics of fitting a harness, tying knots and belaying. A number of classes are available through ODR Ramstein, including equipment hire.

by Leonie Milde contributing writer Germans love Christmas markets. And why wouldn’t they? Usually located in the city center, Christmas markets bring families and friends together over sweet and savory delicacies like sausages “Bratwurst,” German gingerbread “Lebkuchen” and mulled wine “Glühwein.” Live music and cozy wooden huts selling crafty goods, decorations, winter clothes and kitchen utensils complement programs that people come to see from all over the world. Every single town, no matter how small, has one. As most

village markets only open for one Advent weekend, don’t forget to check your local postings beforehand. Larger markets often last for the entire month and some even stay open until the New Year.

The world’s largest Christmas store, Käthe Wohlfahrt, and a Christmas museum are also located here. Nuremberg Nov. 30 to Dec. 24 — is famous for its gingerbread, “Nürnberger Lebkuchen” and Prune People, “Zwetschgenmännla.” Bad Münster am Stein - Eberburg Dec. 1 to 2, 8 to 9, 15 to 16 — romantic Christmas market.

In Germany, New Year’s Eve is called Silvester. Pope Sylvester I is reported to have died on 31 December 335. While the festivities feel the same as a New Year’s Eve celebration in the United States, in Germany, they are actually celebrating Saint Sylvester. At midnight, a great noise is heard through fireworks and church bells. This tradition, that noise helps ward off spirits, dates back to pre-medieval times.

Advent Sundays help usher in the festivities. Advent Sundays are the four Sundays in December leading up to Christmas. Because you count down to Christmas, the dates for Advent Sundays change from year to year (in 2018 they will be Dec. 2, 9, 16, and 23). Traditionally, a wreath with four candles is placed on a living room or dining room table. On each Sunday before Christmas, one of the candles is lit, culminating in the fourth candle lighting on the fourth Advent Sunday, just days before Christmas Eve.

Christmas. Each day on the calendar has a little door or window that, when opened, reveals a treat (usually a chocolate, candy, or toy). However, for children in Germany, St. Nicholas Day is when they find out whether they were naughty or nice. On the evening of Dec. 5, German children put out their boots before bed. If they’ve been good, they wake to find that St. Nicholas has visited and with the help of his assistant, Knecht Ruprecht, placed small gifts and candy in their boots. In Bavaria, St. Nicholas and Ruprecht are accompanied by the Krampus, a horned creature who is there to punish the children who haven’t been so good.

Winter forest hiking – time for adventures For my fellow hikers who enjoyed the great outdoors trekking during the warmer months of the year, there is no need to put away those boots and let Old Man Winter keep you indoors until spring of next year. Winter hiking and snowshoeing are excellent activities for those of you who are not into skiing or snowboarding and want to keep up your fitness levels while checking out amazing scenery, tasting schnapps and local food specialties along the way, visiting landmarks, and seeing a variety of wildlife and plants that thrive throughout the winter months. Below are four routes for you to start enjoying nature in the colder months. Gipfelrauschen Hike This hike begins at the Hunsrueckhaus located next to the Erbeskopf ski slope. The clearly marked trails lead you through dense spruce and fir forest areas with a variety of wide open spaces to narrow footpaths and nature preservation areas. It then takes a few upward spiral turns and drops back into a valley path that leads you to the Gipfel (peak) platform which is the highest point in the region. From the Gipfel you have a view of the hills, valleys, and villages for several kilometers in every direction. The path from the Gipfel leads you down to your start point at the Hunsrueckhaus where you can recharge and warm up with an amazing soup of the day, local schnapps, local food specialties, and visit the nature museum and souvenir shop. Start point: Hunsrueckhaus am Erbeskopf, 54411 Deuselbach Distance: 7.5 km Time estimate: 3 h ours Experience: Excellent Terrain: Various flat and steep areas

Difficulty Rating: Moderate to difficult. Not stroller or small child friendly. Detailed info: https://www.erbeskopf. de/de/tourismus-kultur/ aktiv-in-der-natur/wandern/ nationalpark-traumschleifegipfelrauschen.html

Wind, Wasser & Wacken Hike The Wind, Water, and Rock trail is an excellent environmental education hike for adults, school groups, and anyone who wants to get out and enjoy a day crossing streams, meadows, and trekking along thick forest paths in the Hardtwald forest near Thalfang. The theme is climate protection, energy conservation through the use of wind and water power in the region, and also focuses on geology. Along the way you encounter windmills, underground springs, mineral wells, a dark narrow oak forest area, and the Berger Wacken geological area. All areas have informational signs posted, and there are a variety of rest stops along the way for a picnic lunch and snacks. Just below the start point in the village of Thalfang you will find a variety of restaurants and cafes to enjoy local food and drink specialties, as well as grocery stores and shops just in case you forgot to pack something for your day out on the trail. Start point: Wanderpark platz, “Huns rücker Windweg,” junction K77 / K76, 54426 Heidenburg / Berglicht Distance: 10.1 km Time estimate: 3 ½ Hours Experience: Excellent Terrain: Wide open meadows, narrow trails, creek crossings, dense forest Difficulty Rating: Easy to moderate. Not stroller or small child friendly Detailed info: https://www.erbeskopf. d e / d e / t o u r i s mu s - k u l t u r / aktiv-in-der-natur/wandern/ traumschleife-wind-wasserwacken.html

Baerenbachpfad Hike The Baumholder community is often regarded by many as a place that they are stuck in with nothing to do and nowhere to go locally, especially during winter. However, there are many adventures just minutes away from post and the housing areas. The Baerenbachfad (bear stream path) hiking trail takes you on a very quiet and peaceful journey by streams, rock formations, waterfalls, through meadows, fields, and forest areas with amazing panoramic views. Take advantage of the many rest stops along the trail for a picnic lunch or to get a glimpse of the many inhabitants of this well-preserved forest region. The old town of Baumholder has a variety of small cafes and restaurants where you can find local specialties as well as American, Italian, and Asian restaurants. Start point: Am Weiherdamm 1, 55774 Baumholder Distance: 14 km Time estimate: 4.5 hours Experience: Excellent Terrain: Excellent Difficulty Rating: Moderate, not stroller or small child friendly Detailed info: www.baumholder.de

Feldberg Although I’ve been snowboarding and skiing for many years, snowshoeing is a way for me to mix up my activities while avoiding crowded slopes, long ticket and lift lines, and hauling a bunch of equipment around. This very popular sport does not require hours of lessons, is very easy to learn, has a low injury risk factor, is inexpensive, and a great way to relieve stress, the winter blues, burn excess holiday calories, and spend quality family time outdoors. One of my favorite snowshoe adventures start at the House of Nature adjacent to the Feldberg ski lift. All trails are clearly marked, and you can get a trail map for free or hire a guide for an additional fee. Although some of the trails can be a bit challenging while trekking through deep snow, it is worth the extra effort to experience the panoramic views, crisp mountain air, and taking a break at one of many mountain huts and lodges to relax and recharge. They offer the best local specialties that include Black Forest smoked ham, sausages, cake, cherry schnapps, beer and wine. Some of them also have overnight accommodations.

The House of Nature in Feldberg offers regular guided snowshoe tours as well as snowshoe rental. Based on snow conditions, tours are provided every Sunday from December till March at noon. Start point: Haus der Natur, Dr. Pilet Spur 1, 79868 Feldberg Distance: 12.5 km Time estimate: 5 hours Experience: Excellent Terrain: Deep snow and slippery at places Difficulty Rating: Moderate to difficult. Not stroller or small child friendly. Detailed info: www. hochschwarzwald.de/ Feldberg

What to bring: Sturdy hiking shoes or boots, gaiters to keep snow out of your footwear, all-weather clothing that includes layers, water, snacks, first aid kit, toilet paper, sunscreen, phone or GPS and Euro. Most remote huts and rest areas do not accept plastic. Dos and Don’ts: • Stay on the trails to avoid disturbing wildlife and eco systems. • Keep your pets in control and clean up after them. • Take frequent breaks based on your ability level. • Research and rent snowshoes before purchasing them. • Constantly check weather conditions and know where to go for shelter.

Christmas markets in Regensburg radiate with allure of old world By Thomas Warner contributing writer One of the best Christmas market scenes in Europe happens each winter in Regensburg. The town itself is a jewel and at Christmas it takes on another life of its own. Markets are set up at several locations – all within walking distance of one another – and visitors usually begin planning another warmweather visit to this undiscovered European stalwart.

Planning a trip to this Bavarian masterpiece is easy, as you take the Autobahn 6 eastward, past Mannheim, Heidelberg and finally Nuremburg, where you will go south on Autobahn 3 some 50 kilometers. In all, it takes about five hours to drive, but a train ticket from Landstuhl to Regensburg might cost as little as 30 euro, with the market areas then easily accessible from the central train station. Christmas markets along the Danube River have drawn big crowds for over 100 years, but they remain largely undiscovered by mass American audiences because of the lack of name recognition compared to larger German cities of Cologne and elsewhere. With the expected drive, it is a good idea to arrange for an overnight stay so you can

take in the market atmosphere in both night and daytime. Markets are set up at the Katharinenspital area, the Lucrezia at Heidplatz and Kohlenmarkt, Christkindlmarkt at Neupfarrplatz, and the Romantic Market set up alongside the Thurn and Taxis Castle. Each market promotes its own special theme and resonates with a unique spirit of allure and grandeur. Situated along the famous Danube and boasting rich Roman and German history, Regensburg offers several museums of various sizes, a castle ruins area, and old town Altstadt buildings, churches, the stunning Gothic St. Peter’s cathedral, and a plethora of cuisines for all tastes, including oldstyle German food with large servings.

Christmas Market at Katharinenspital in Stadtamhof

a United Nations World Heritage Site and is a place you can easily find reasons for making a second and third visit at a later date. St. Emmeram’s Basilica has roots dating back a thousand years and typifies the European aspects found in buildings of worship throughout Bavaria and this extended region. Ornate and splendid, buildings that are part of the St. Emmeram’s complex are worth a few hours of your visit to this city. One set of carved pictorial reliefs depicting Christ and two saints are said to be the oldest in Germany. At the Christmas markets, there are craftsmen selling various machineproduced and hand-made Christmas ornaments, wood carvers, ceramic or

glass offerings, trees for sale, and lots of food and drink stands. The best part of Christmastime in Regensburg, for many, is the live music served up at the scattered market sites. An internationally-known boys choir sings at masses and church ceremonies in the cathedral, making for a memorable and spiritually pleasing experience if you can catch them. Occasionally they perform outdoors but more often inside. Other musicians with horns, stringed instruments, and classical flavors are almost always performing world music, traditional, and classical numbers as a backdrop to the outdoor market ambiance. It sets an uplifting tone for the overall experience and is pleasing to both the ear and the soul.

The historical aspects of Regensburg make it appealing and noteworthy for new visitors, but one might use the Christmas markets as the overall reason to go there. With overnight plans, you can also access the Roman-era Stone Bridge walking area, the 1800s Walhalla monument, the ages-old public Sausage House restaurant, multiple rich, market shopping experiences, or a simple cup of coffee with friends while soaking up the intrigue of the passing of time. This is a city with a flair for culture. It has a philharmonic symphony, a thriving theater scene, a university, and people living here who take pride in showcasing their town as having much more than just the Christmas markets.

Skydiving is one of those experiences in life that many ponder and have on their bucket list of amazing adventures. My only warning to you is the addictive nature of this sport. My first jump got me so hooked that every time I see a Cessna fly over, even during the offseason, my adrenalin levels crank up and take me back to that moment. Arriving at the hangar for my first jump and meeting the tandem instructors who were professional, friendly, and gave off powerful enthusiastic vibes got everyone in the group motivated and eager to get the show on the road and into the sky. We were briefed on the safety of the sport, equipment, and the process of jumping out of a plane while going on a tandem flight from 14,000 feet. After boarding we took off on a smooth ascent and just chilled out while enjoying the view on the way up. My instructor was hilarious and told a couple of jokes during the flight, keeping us laughing. Once the plane leveled, the words “ready mate� was the last thing that I recall hearing before spilling out the door for a thrill of a lifetime. The initial jump and freefall at over 100 miles per

hour was crazy. It was amazing, like floating on water and not that gut-wrenching sick feeling of falling uncontrollably that many people anticipate and fear. After the initial freefall the instructor deployed his chute and slowed us down for our descent to the drop zone. One of the coolest things was to go into circular maneuvers with my hands stretched in front of me while enjoying an amazing view of the hills, valleys, and surrounding villages below without an inkling of fear in my mind. As we approached the landing zone my tandem instructor let me take the toggles and steer the chute for a bit while continuing to shout out what we were about to do and make sure that I was comfortable and that we would land safely. Once we landed I was ready to hop back into the plane and jump again. Skydiving like many other adventures are seasonal because of weather conditions. End of March through October is prime season. I will feature some of the best skydiving opportunities, and experiences in the spring and summer 2019 editions of the Kaiserslautern American. Until then there is a way to test the water this winter before diving in head first once the seasons change again. Indoor skydiving in a wind tunnel is an excellent way to try out how skydiving feels before-

hand and get yourself ready for the season. The wind tunnel airflow simulates the realistic freefall portion of a skydive as well as allowing you to do turns, go forward, backward, slow down and speed up your fall rate all which build your precision levels and confidence. The indoor flights are actually longer than outdoor flights. Not only was it fun and gave me that adrenalin junky fix, it is also very safe and can be done

with a group of friends or the whole family at one time. I have visited Indoor Skydiving Bottrop on various occasions. This extraordinary facility is open for beginners and professionals from all sectors of skydiving and offers the possibility to practice flying before an actual jump. The flight chamber is 17 meters high and has room for up to six participants. Skydiving Bottrop has a variety of packages for

adults, kids, and groups that start with two tunnel flights which are longer than two skydives from an altitude of 13,000 feet! You are welcome to bring food, water and snacks, or eat at the bistro. All equipment will be provided on site. Be sure to make reservations well in advance. For more information, visit www.indoor-skydiving.com

by Ronnie Juhanns contributing writer Travelers from around the world visit Switzerland to take the journey to the top of Europe and visiting Europe’s highest altitude railway station. At 3,454 meters this is one of the most impressive views of Switzerland’s many snow-capped peaks. I’ve taken this journey a few times during different seasons and each experience was unique. The train ride to Jungfraujoch in itself is amazing and is worth the time spending 30 minutes from the Grindelwald village station to Kleine Scheidegg pass station and another 50 minutes on an epic ride to the highest point. However, if you time it right you can enjoy the views during the first leg, take a break at the Kleine Scheidegg station and treat yourself to local food and drink specialties inside the restaurant or out on the terrace with view of the Eiger mountain, as well as the surrounding peaks and valleys, before boarding the

Kaiserslautern American

next train that will take you through the Eiger mountain tunnel. If you’ve never been in the Swiss Alps be prepared for a variety of weather conditions and temperature changes. Everything from high winds to snowstorms and whiteout conditions due to dense fog can take you by surprise. Be prepared by having proper layers and not assuming that the sunny skies at the start of your trip will last for the rest of the day. Below are some of the most popular attractions for your visit to the top of Europe.

The Jungfrau railway runs 9 kilometers from Kleine Scheidegg to the highest railway station in Europe at Jungfraujoch (3,454 m). Photo by PixHound / Shutterstock.com

Eismeer Glacier The train stops at the Eismeer station at 3,160 meters for a 5-minute break to give passengers the opportunity to take photographs. Views of ice blocks and 4,000-meter peaks have visitors gasping in awe. This stop is a great opportunity to take an assessment of weather conditions and figure out if you need to dig into your backpack to adjust your clothing layers. The Alpine Sensation This is a 250-meter-long corridor between the Sphinx Hall and Ice Palace peaks. During this amazing and very chilly experience you can see memorials of the miners who’s hard work and sacrifices made the journey by railway to the top of Europe possible. Listening to the music and seeing the images along the way can be enlightening, or haunting, as you are taken back in time to the start of the construction of the railway.

November 23, 2018

Ice Palace The corridors and halls of the Ice Palace are a very impressive collection of ice artwork presenting a variety of sculptures, including a bear, penguin, eagle and more. The natural resemblance of the animal sculptures makes them appear as if they were frozen in place. The Ice Palace was carved out of the glacier in the 1930s by two mountain guides by hand using only ice picks and saws, creating a 1000 square meter large labyrinth.

Lindt Swiss Chocolate Although Lindt chocolate can be found almost anywhere, chocoholics from the world over spend a lot of their time at Jungfraujoch visiting the highest altitude chocolate shop and factory. The Lindt tour includes everything from learning how to use the mixing machines, how chocolate bars are made, an overview of the facility, and free time to load up on your favorite fix.

Living within a few hours of Switzerland in the KMC, I suggest driving to Interlaken or giving you the opportunity to not only visit the top of Europe by train but also ending your day by spending time sightseeing, eating more Swiss food, shopping for souvenirs like Swiss chocolate, Swiss army knives, watches, handcrafted woodworks, and eating the best Black Forest Cake (Schwarzwaelder Kuchen) in Europe while being entertained by the dozens of paragliders circling above and landing in a field just a stone’s throw away.

Be prepared: • All weather clothing layers • Sturdy hiking boots or shoes with a good grip • Snacks and water especially for kids • Sunscreen and sunglasses • Cash and plastic. Some small cafés, bars and shops do not take cards. • Check the weather before purchasing your ticket.

Lisbon in December was love at first sight. As our taxi plunged toward the city’s heart, a tangerine setting sun transformed palm trees to black silhouettes while evening lights blinked to life. Clean shopfronts gleamed with tile, textile, Ronaldo jerseys, Messi jerseys, gelato counters, kebap stands and a thousand other wondrous things. When we reached central Lisbon, the towering white columns of the

Four Lisbon Essentials Você fala inglês? Or, “Do you speak English?” in Portuguese. An essential question for seeking information or assistance. Though English is widely spoken, leading with the local language is a helpful practice. Viva Viagem card: If you’re planning to be in Lisbon without a car for more than a day or two, consider getting this public transportation pass. It is reloadable, and allows access to Lisbon’s excellent system of trains, buses, subways, and trolleys. Learn more at www.metrolisboa.pt/en/buy/ viva-viagem-card.

Though Lisbon in winter can be rainy, visitors can also be treated to a week’s worth of sun and warmth — like we were. Good weather wasn’t a gift that we took lightly. When it was time to leave, I looked at my children and said, “Take a deep breath, kids. We won’t be smelling anything like this for a long time.” I was talking about the crisp, clean smell of a sunny winter morning somewhere warm, like southern California or Florida. But the children nodded earnestly and took deep breaths. They know how it is. Winter in Europe rarely gets this good.

stands in sharp contrast to the nearby Baixa district, where wide boulevards contain chic shops and fine restaurants. If you want history, the Gulbenkian Museum houses a comprehensive and accessible collection that stretches from ancient Greece to the twentieth century. Or you can wander through Jerónimos Monastery and wind past tourists snapping photos of psychadelic stained glass until you reach Vasco da Gama’s tomb. As with many other places in Lisbon, you can stand face-to-face with the past and marvel at its resonance with the present.

São Jorge towers above Lisbon, is brilliantly lighted at night, and allows you to share space with strutting peacocks while surveying the city and harbor. The small town of Sintra is a short train ride outside of Lisbon, and is absolutely worth a day trip to visit the colorful Palácio da Pena and famous thousand-year-old Castelo dos Mourous. Lisbon is also one of the most walkable cities in Europe, and has a variety of fascinating neighborhoods. Wandering the Alfama district — which is a maze of medieval alleys, fado bars, restaurants, and orange trees growing out of stone walkways — is like stepping into the age of explorers. Alfama

Fado: Literally meaning “destiny” or “fate,” fado is a sparse, beautifully melancholy form of traditional Portuguese music that has roots in lamenting sailors lost at sea. Live music can be found in fado bars abound in Lisbon, which are well worth a visit.

5 Tips for decluttering your home by Brionna Kennedy MilitaryInGermany.com Clutter can pile a lot faster than you think. If you’ve noticed that you can no longer move inside your closet or garage, it may be time to start polishing up on your closet and garage organization skills. To help you with the decluttering process, here are five tips to consider.

have more than 15 minutes to spare, consider creating a goal chart. On this chart, write down what you will want to accomplish every week. Every time you’re able to check off your goal, you’ll feel a great sense of accomplishment.

2. 15 Minutes a Day Every day, try to make it a habit to declutter for at least 15 minutes. By doing so, you’d be amazed at how fast you can get rid of stuff. Even if it’s in small increments, the piles should slowly disappear. If you

3. One-Year Box If you’re unsure you want to throw some things away, simply throw them in a box and label it with a date that is a year from now. If that box is still unopened a year from when you packaged the box, then it’s safe to get rid

of the belongings inside. Remember if these items are usable, consider donating or gifting them before tossing them out, or turn them into cash by selling them in the classified section of www.finditguide.com. Just because the items are no longer needed in your life doesn’t mean other cannot put them to good use. It is a great way to help the lives of others, not to mention the nice tax write-off you get.

1. Start in the Corner A great way to declutter is by starting in the corner of the room

and working your way around it. When you do this, clean off any surfaces, empty bins and repeat as you go layer by layer of the room. Eventually, you’re going to end up in the middle of the room with nothing left to get rid of.

4. Make Your Space Smaller If possible, try to make your storage spaces as small as possible. If you have a lot of storage space, you’ll often find that you’re going to naturally fill it with belongings that will sit and collect dust. Today, minimizing your space is easier than before with the many storage solutions available on the market. If a mess is growing up around you, really put in the time and research. There are many great systems out there that can help you get organized and cut down on the extras you have collected over the years. 5. Hire Someone As a last resort, you may want to consider bringing in a professional to help get rid of your clutter. Oftentimes, these professionals can recommend tips or help you cope if you have emotional attachments to certain items. Or perhaps swap roles with a friend and de-clutter each other’s homes! Decluttering your home is easier than ever if you take the action to do so. By applying the tips mentioned above, you should be able to take a fresh breath and feel free again. It is natural to

build up a collection of goods over the years. We all need different items at different times in our lives, but taking a step back and seeing what is still necessary to your life is always a breath of fresh air.

5 Steps to building your own holiday traditions by Nate Cairney contributing writer “Holiday traditions” are often so ingrained that we rarely stop to think about them. What happens, then, when you and your family move abroad and are cut off from grandmother’s pumpkin pie? Do you try to video-conference into a dining room filled with bleary-eyed loved ones nine time zones away? Do you desperately decorate your house with blazing lights and violate a dozen local ordinances in the process? No. You do something better. You take a deep breath, get strategic, and build your own tradi-

Step 3: Dream big. Keep the brainstorm going. You live in a place where the possibilities for holiday adventure are staggering. You could see northern lights in Scandinavia or sun yourself on Spanish beaches. Gorge on gasthaus Sunday brunches or fly to Bratislava to hunt for handpainted holiday eggs. Wrap yourself in stinky Estonian

spa mud or go for something more pine-scented in Karlovy Vary. All these places (and hundreds more) are available to you during the holidays. Many people back home would call them “oncein-a-lifetime” opportunities. And here you are… Step 4: Think long-term. By definition, traditions endure. But most of us are only going to be here, in Europe, for a finite period of time. The tradition-building process, however, is portable and highly adaptable. So when you move to Korea, Texas, Kansas, Italy, or wherever, take this process with you. Make tradition-building a tradition! Step 5: Write down your plan and go. Once you’ve mourned, brainstormed, and dreamed your way to what your family’s new holiday traditions could be, pick a short list of winners and write them down. Then stack hands and start executing the plan.

Step 1: Be intentional about acknowledging reality. When you move abroad, reality has a way of not being subtle. New rules, new languages, and new country codes are hard to ignore. But holidays are sneaky. Even in a new place, holidays tend to produce bubbles that fool us into thinking things haven't changed that much. To move forward, the bubble has to pop. So pull out a pen and write down what you loved about holidays past. Th en acknowledge that some of those things are gone. If it helps, have a ceremony in which you say goodbye to them.

Step 2: Have a “holiday traditions” brainstorm — all brains are required. Now that you’ve mourned the loss of what once was, focus on the present. Gather your family and begin brainstorming. Write everything down. Ask yourself — and answer — questions like: what do the holidays really mean? What do you like about them? What do you not like? If you were free to start from scratch — if someone, say, picked you up and set you down in a different country — what would you do? Choose a moderator to make sure everyone participates.

German Christmas


While many Germans resort to classic dishes like potato salad and sausages or Schnitzel, most take advantage of the spare time that comes with the holidays and create extravagant meals for the whole family. The basic concept is the same as American feasts: a combination of meat, seasonal vegetables and carbs. While you can never go wrong with a classic pork tenderloin, mashed potatoes and brussel sprouts menu, here’s an option that’s slightly more effort but definitely worth the time it takes to prepare: Rinderrouladen (beef rolls), homemade red cabbage and bread dumplings. Don’t let the number of steps fool you, this requires none of the German cooking experience and results in all of the German flavors. Bonus: legend has it that leftovers taste even better and everything about this meal is suitable for reheating the next day. Serves 4 adults. Including cooking time, it will take you a little over 2 hours. Rouladen Ingredients: • 6 “Rinderrouladen” (buy pre cut at German butchers) • 6 thick slices of bacon • 6 pickled cucumbers, sliced lengthwise • 12 tsp. mustard • 2 shallots, thinly sliced • 2 tbsp. clarified butter or vegetable oil • Salt, pepper • cooking string or toothpicks Sauce • 1 bouquet of soup greens (carrot, celery, leek) • 2 tsp. tomato paste • 1 tbsp. sugar • 9 fl. oz. red wine • 14 fl. oz. beef stock • Salt, pepper to taste • 2 oz. butter cubes, frozen • 1 packet of chestnuts, pre-cooked • Optional: 1 tbsp. crème fraîche Instructions: 1. Slice and dice all of your vegetables. 2. Use a meat hammer to flatten your Rouladen. 3. Season with salt and pepper. Evenly spread 2 tsp. of mustard, a slice of bacon, the slices equivalent of one pickled cucumber and some of the shallots. 4. Roll the roulade like a burrito to ensure nothing falls out. 5. Wrap like a Christmas present using the cooking string. Toothpicks work, too.

6. Preheat the oven at 320°F/160°C 7. Use a large, oven proof pan to brown the Rouladen in butter on all sides. 8. Take meat out of the pan and add the soup greens, remaining shallots and tomato paste that will later become the sauce. 9. Sauté for 5 minutes. 10. Gradually add red wine and beef stock, giving it time to set between pours. 11. Put Rouladen back in the pan, on top of your sauce base, and put in the oven for circa 90 minutes. If they start to get too dark for your liking, simply place a lid or aluminum foil on top. 12. Check if the meat is well done before taking it out. Keep warm. 13. Press sauce through a strainer and add cold butter cubes and, if desired, crème fraîche to make it extra creamy. 14. Add chestnuts and simmer for a few more minutes before adding the Rouladen again. Red Cabbage Ingredients: • 3/4 red cabbage

• • • • • • • • •

1 onion 2 apples 1 bayleaf 2 tbsp. vinegar 4 fl. oz. red wine (can be substituted with cherry or elderberry juice) 3/4 tsp. cinnamon or gingerbread spice 2 tbsp. red currant jam (“Johannisbeergelee”) Salt, pepper 2 tbsp. clarified butter or vegetable oil

Instructions: 1. Keep in mind that, like spinach, cabbage shrinks while cooking. 2. Cut cabbage into fine strips, toss the stem. 3. Dice apples and onion. 4. Melt the butter in a pot and sauté the apples and onion for a minute before adding the cabbage and mixing

everything together. 5. Add spices, jam, vinegar and wine. 6. Simmer on medium heat for anything between 30 and 120 minutes depending on how soft you want it to be. 7. You can prepare this a day in advance without missing out on flavor. Simply add a splash of water and reheat it when needed. Bread Dumplings Ingredients: • 6 bread rolls, at least a day old • 1 onion • 2 oz. butter • 7 fl. oz. milk • 3 eggs • salt and pepper • 1.5 oz. flour


• 3 tsbp. chopped parsley Instructions: 1. Dice bread and onions. 2. Sauté the onions in butter for 4-5 min. 3. Add milk to the onions, heat up for a moment and pour into a bowl containing the breadcrumbs. 4. Add eggs, flour, parsley, pepper and salt, knead thoroughly. 5. Tip: if the dough feels too dry, add more milk. 6. Let the mixture sit for 30 min. 7. Wet your hands to form 12 dumplings. 8. Boil a little more than half a gallon of salt water. 9. Add dumplings and simmer for 10-12 min.

Introducing Local Businesses G.I. BILL PAY SERVICE

G.I. Bill PAY Service recently welcomed its 70,000 customer, a significant milestone in its long tradition of service to Americans serving overseas. G.I. Bill Pay Service began in Okinawa in 1999, founded by Air Force veterans Dave Hales and Joe Plott. The company grew quickly and nearly 19 years later boasts seven offices throughout Europe and Asia, each providing its bill payment and translation services to military members, government civilians and their families. “I am extremely pleased that, even though I am retired from active duty, I am still able to help take care of our troops,“ said Plott, CEO and co-owner. No business can reach such a significant milestone by chance: at the core of the company’s growth is its reputation for outstanding customer service. Personalized account management allows families to enjoy peace of mind during travel and deployments. Their staff also provides courtesy translations of bills and letters, so that customers always understand what is happening with their finances. Customers also enjoy low fees and competitive exchange rates. G.I. Bill Pay Service is especially proud of its recent partnership with USAA, which allows it to waive service fees for USAA members in Europe. “I can’t think of a more noble cause than trying to make life a little easier for our service members and their families. I feel immense pride that G.I.Bill Pay Service has helped 70,000 families and is still growing,” said retired Army Gen. Tom Schwartz, G.I. Bill Pay Service Board Member. “The genuine ‘Thank You for helping us,’ that we hear on a daily basis from individuals who have used our service is a true blessing,” said Plott. This is what motivates us to do more.
