Terror! Europe?

Moving abroad is reaching the terrifying point as we are now homeless, items are scattered throughout my parents house, and we have numerous events looming. Surprise Birthday, Sounders, Wing Dome, Road trip to CA, First Thursday, Halloween, dentist,  on top of finishing packing for the trip and getting visa documents in order. Shnike there is a lot to do.

Luckily, actual fear doesn't usually come into play. As Americans, we often disregard the general dangers that besiege us everyday. Driving a car, high crime, and the Northwest's charming infestation of serial killers. We gladly trade those real threats for the safety of Europe.

Parents fears of us being in such a big city were quickly dismissed upon landing in Berlin. Besides the generally harmless street punks, Berlin is an extremely safe city and it feels like it. Until....

"U.S. warns citizens of terror threat in Europe"

say what? Apparently there is something to be worried about in Europe right now. Though not targeted at Americans, and not just in Berlin, the current threat is a tad intimidating. "The travel alert is one level lower than a travel warning..." Here's hoping for a little more kumbaya in the future.
