I just found out that my good friend was accepted to the Goethe program in Germany this summer. I plan to meet up with her in Europe when she is done with the program and bounce a round for a couple of weeks. I had fun this weekend as I pullled my old Europe guidebooks off the bookshelf (yes, I still use real books), dusted them off, and began planning my next European adventure. Content that I didn’t “need” to see anything specific (with the exception of Cinque Terre), I almost want to just meet her in Vienna, Venice, Rome…wherever, and just hop on a train and see where it goes. All this planning has also made me reminiscent of my trip to Europe a couple of years ago when went to Germany for the same program. Here is a picture from that trip.
