Friday's Letters

Dear Germany:  
Thanks for being so awesome.  I can't wait to finally get out and explore you this weekend and next week.  There is so much I want to see, I have had a hard time figuring out where to start.
Heidelburg, Wurzburg and Munich is going to be a fantastic start, I think.

Dear fiance:
I miss you, and love you.
That's all.

Dear Moose and Frankenstein:
I know you probably feel a little abandoned by your mama right now, but know that there isn't a day that goes by where I don't think about you.  Your papa and I talk about how much we miss you all the time.  I hope you're keeping Grandma company and enjoying all the nuggets your surely being fed.  
We won't be away forever.

Dear body:
If you get sick, we will have problems.

Dear host family:
Thank you for being so wonderful.  Every day that passes I feel more and more comfortable.
Thank you for welcoming me into your home.

Dear mini red Fiat:
I'm starting to finally understand how you work- clutch, gas, break.  I'll admit, our first couple days together did not go very well, but it's starting to look like you're not so bad, after all.

Dear weather
Please don't rain the the entire next week.  A little is ok, but all the time? please, no.

Dear self:
This week will be your first time traveling solo.  I know you're nervous and a little scared, but you will be ok.
I promise.

Pin It!

When are you going to Heidelberg? I'm there in 22 days! If you make it there before me you'll have to let me know if there's anything specific I should see/do. And if I'm there before you I'll do the same :)
Have a great time traveling lady!!

WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO HEIDELBERG?!?! That's like, a 2 hour train ride away from me, and if you're there on a saturday I can do the cheapo go anywhere in germany ticket. If not... you're lame. haha not really.
And... has it been raining down there? It's just been cloudy up here today and yesterday.
And.... welcome to Germany, where the humid air will somehow manage to make you sick constantly. I've been sick more times in the past 6 months than ever before in my life, I swear.

Love the idea of writing mini-letters! And the flower up top is gorgeous! You'll be just fine travelling solo! It's scary at first - give into it, and then tell it to move aside, because you are more than capable of handling anything coming your way!

Kendra said...

I just traveled alone from the first time this weekend. It went swell, hope your adventure goes well also!

Ana F. said...

Have fun on your little trip! I'm sure it will be a lot of fun! :)

Had you driven stick-shift cars before? I learned to drive on a stick-shift, but haven't done so in a long time. My husband's car is not automatic, so I wonder if it was too hard for you to learn???

I'm so happy to hear your host family is so nice. That's a very important step for a wonderful year :)

Oh wow, you're in Germany? One of my favorite places on the planet is Bensheim, German, about 45 minutes outside of Frankfurt. An NGO I worked with for 7 years had our international Headquarters housed there. I haven't been back in a few years & miss it so. I hope you have a fantastic trip & soak up every wonderful treasure Germany has to offer. Safe travels!

Robin said...

I am so excited to hear that you are adjusting to Germany smoothly :] Don't be scared about your travels, soak in every moment, it isn't often you get to explore a new country!

Can't wait to hear more! Safe travels!

Pamela said...

Have fun & be careful!! :)

Alex Butts said...

WHEN are you going to Wurzburg? I want to come!

Jamie said...

What awesome adventures you are going to have! I can't wait to read all about them.

cynthia said...

Yes, you will be OK. Your Munich posts proved it. And you're going to have so much fun all over Europe! So jealous!
