Summer 2009 Review

Well our summer of adventure is about to come to an end . . . amazing how fast it was over considering the many hours I slaved away on the computer, read books, and numerous message board reviews so I could plan the perfect trip. Just hard to believe that it is all over . . . and it was worth every penny . . . no regrets at all just great memories . . . and hopefully the beginning of many more adventures. I only wish it could have lasted longer but I am already thinking about December . . . seriously I am working on planning a trip! I am sure you can guess where we will head to again . . .


And while we did not see the world . . . it is a start!

Scandinavia Trip Review

I had the best time on my trip . . . I really don't know what else to say other than what I have already written . . . so here is a map

I love these maps . . . I am working on doing a review of our entire summer!

My favorites?
1. Norway . . . beautiful beyond words
2. Stockholm . . . city with so much to see and do

If you want scenery then Norway is the place to go . . . if you want a city with museums and night life then Stockholm fits the bill. The downside to both of the above is cost . . . holy smokes I am glad I had no clue what the exchange rate was because I would have so not enjoyed myself . . . while is sounds stupid to not know . . . so glad I was way off but I have no regrets . . . and I would not really do anything differently . . . can't wait to do it again!

***For some reason I can't see the maps ... not sure if it is just my computer but have no clue.

Day 17: back to Texas

Home . . . what more can I say about a 10 hour flight . . . it is over! Now the fun begins trying to get Colin back on schedule and being at home with me . . . I am certain he will be asking every 10 minutes when he can go back to Papa and Maw's house. I can't wait to do it all again . . . maybe a winter trip with Colin . . . snow required!!!

Day 16: Nurnberg Germany

I love Nurnberg . . . had to have one last day in the town. Since I fly out early, spending the night at the Movenpick . . . so easy to wake up and walk across the street to the terminal. Of course what I really wanted was one last German meal because who knows when I will get back to Germany! I love German food . . . Sauerbrater (roast pork with gingerbread sauce), red cabbage, knodel (potato dumpling), spaetzle (noodles), and a big bottle of mineral water . . . of course had to top it off with two scoops of eis mit sahne (ice cream with whipped cream) . . . chocolate and hazelnut! Oh how my mouth is watering just thinking about it!

Day 14: back in Germany

Just a very low key day . . . nothing like a few days hanging out, washing clothes, and being lazy!

Day 13: so long Scandinavian

As they say . . . all good things must come to an end . . . and just like life it is time for me to get back to reality and day to day life. It has been SO nice to escape the routine of my life . . . while I have missed Colin it was nice to not have to be 'on call' all day, every day. So good-bye to the last of my vacation . . . I do have a few more days once I get back to Germany before flying home . . . always love spending time 'home'.
