Leaving on a Jet Plane...

Paired with last night's karaoke escapades and tomorrow's flight, I got a little John Denver on the mind:

We are taking the parents to their 4th-6th European country. Flying to Budapest & spending a few days there, then a day in Bratislava, then Vienna. Some new, some old for us, but I am sure it will all be fabulous. Especially since having them here has been so fun-filled in boring 'ole Berlin.

Botanical Gardens
Turkish market & dried fruits
Cart Racing
Ian's kids


Beers. Prost!
Truffels & chocolates at Fassbender & Rausch oh my!

History - Topography of Terror
Random UBahn performance from Canada's Trike
Brandenburger Tor

Festival of Lights
Time with the fam.
 I borrowed my mum's pics here, but will have to upload mine soon. And I will provide more city ratings, rants, and random stories. But for now,

Kedves egeszsegere!
 (according to Google, Hungarian for Prost)

Thanks Jan! So maybe Berlin is not so bad ;)

We are excited for the trip and will, of course, be posting copious pictures, stories, and randomness

There's nothing boring about Berlin! We even had an interesting time going to the laundromat. We've had amazing food originating from Germany, India, Turkey, Poland, France - seen incredible sites including a Berlin Union soccer game, a palace, the town of Potsdam, Berlin lit up at night, and best of all - the opportunity to regular hugs from two of our kids!
