You Had Best Thank Me For This
I greatly lament having left you all for a week when Mom was here. I even more greatly lament having left you the absolute crappiest and least interesting post ever to read. To make up for my horrible lapse in blogging responsibility, I have written you a couple special and new (and LONG!) posts for you to take advantage of during this puente. Don't spend them all in one place, now.
First, though, I'm going to make you all SOOOO JEALOUS by telling you where I'm going (as far as I know, I'm not the one running this shebang)!
The Deal: Allison is flying into Munich to visit Jorge, friend from UDLA in Mexico! Four of us are then doing the Mad Alpine RoadTrip!
The Group: Allison, Jorge, female friend of Jorge's (Chilean), male friend of Jorge's (Lithuanian)!
The Challenge: Find a lingua franca within the first two hours!
The Pitstops: Munich, Germany - Konstanz, Germany - Lindau, Germany - Lucerne, Switzerland - Interlaken, Switzerland (undoubtedly better than Interlaken, New York, ahahaha) - Grindelwald, Switzerland - Innsbruck, Austria!
The Plan: We're supposed to have a plan? I don't have a plan! Traipse, ala Von Trapp family, and try to avoid dying from avalanches! I don't know if there will be avalanches! There might be! I like explanation points (only Jeannie will understand this joke and she might not yet because she might not have gotten her postcard!)!
The Souvenir(ieieieir) Situation: Cross your fingers and hope I don't run out of cash, and I might getcha something!
The Rest of It: I LOVE YOU AND WILL SEE YOU ALL SOON! (well, except for ChrisnBecky. And Grandma. And Aunt Carrie and Jess and...doh.)
