the TRIP

Frankfurter Allee 2008

Our time in Berlin is dwindling, but on the other hand, that means our TRIP is looming. That's right, it is a TRIP and not a trip. Plans are sure to change, but the basic route is to be night train on the 18th of August to Vienna, to Budapest, to the Transylvania region of Romania, bus to Istanbul, Turkish coast, Greek Isles, sail to Brindisi Italy, check out Polignano a Mare, maybe get to Croatia, back to Rome, quick stop in Pisa, chill in Cinque Terre, stop in Nice, say hello to Evers in Marseille France, see the city of lights sweet Paris, trek the D-Day beaches of Normandy, back to Amsterdam and Netherlands, crash at Cooledge's in Bremen, then one more Oktoberfest, say good-bye to Berlin and the amazing friends we have made, then to Dusseldorf where we will fly direct to Vancouver on September 24th. I wasn't lieing- it's a TRIP. We are excited, anxious, sure to be broke, and can't wait to set off.


We survived! And it was wonderful. Like so many before us, and so many since, we took an absolutely whirlwind month-long trip around Europe.

The posts are not my best work, but they are a perfect time capsule into the madness of our brains during that 30+ day scramble. Internet was scarce, we had to hustle, and we were truly enchanted - spending copious amounts of time sunning ourselves, visiting museums, and snapping photos galore.

We also got really sick. Best diet ever! Just kidding. (But we did return to the US tanned an skinny - not bad).
