Well, we made it to Frankfurt safely. It was incredibly hard to tear ourselves away and drive off, but we managed it eventually. We came alone this time though, no need for my pregnant sister-in-law to sit in a car for four hours when we can say goodbye in Trier. She and my brother-in-law still … More Abflug (Departure)
So, we are headed to Frankfurt this morning to fly home, sadly. It has been a wonderful and worthwhile trip. I will finish filing you in on the happenings of each day as I get time, but today I’ll be blogging the trip “live” as I did on the way here. Bis nachher. 😦
We are here! In Germany!! Finally!!! It feels like an eternity since we were here last, so I apologize if I sound like a total noob. I don’t totally understand it myself. I mean, I understand why I’m excited. But this is weird, different. One thing is for sure though, the longer we are gone … More Hello Germany!
Leg two of our trip has landed us in the capital of the peach state, otherwise known as Atlanta, Georgia. First observation: must be warm here, people aren’t wearing coats.

Egg McMuffin, Sausage McMuffin, Sauage McMuffin with Egg, and the king of them all……the Bacon, Egg, … More Don’t Trust a McDonalds That Hides in a Gas Station
It’s official, my wife is now 100% approved for a VISA/Green Card. Believe it or not, they are actually going to let her stay in the country longer than your average tourist! Unbelievable. And now that I am done teasing my wife I am going to channel the great Paul Harvey and give you…….the rest … More Uncle Sam Approved! (Green Card Update #2)
We are almost done! After deciphering the pages and pages of utterly confusing forms and corresponding directions, and still getting it wrong, we have received the notification for my wife’s appointment at the Frankfurt Consulate. I was beginning to think this day was never going to get here! I don’t think I have ever applied … More Green Card Update!
I am actually very interested in the answer to that question. For years I have heard the term “Green Card”, but never actually seen one. Never. Not that I had any reason to see one, I never really knew anyone that immigrated to America. Well, there was the German lady down the street I guess. … More Is a Green Card Actually Green?
