12:00. That’s what time we woke up on our first full day in Germany. And I’m not talking about waking up 20 times and going back to sleep. No, no. I slept like a rock and only opened my eyes a couple of times as I rolled over. To tell you the truth I would … More Christmas Vacation Day 1: Monster Schnitzel and Football auf Deutsch
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.

The only problem is that we’re going to get about 3 1/2 hours of sleep tonight. Ugh. But maybe we’ll just sleep the whole trip away. Anyway, off to … More Germany or Bust!
Ah, vacation. Recreation. Relaxation. Sightseeing. It doesn’t matter whether you are going to explore someplace new or returning to a favorite place, it is one of the most wonderful events of the year (right after my birthday, of course!). There is only one problem with vacation. Preparation. And the preparation is 100% stress! After years … More I Need a Vacation from my Vacation
