Yes, that is hello in German and Czech, which can only mean that it is time to start another round of travel blogging! Ryan and I just got back a little more than a week ago- so once my jet lag wears off, and our photos are uploaded on my computer- my play by play with photos and videos can begin! I'm sensing the excitement.
When we went to Spain, I did a little summary about some general observations. So I thought I'd do the same for this trip.
1. I wish I knew another language beyond English.
Being an English speaker in Germany and Czech Republic was not a problem. Everyone knew English, and we got by just fine. But, I wish I too could switch from German to Spanish to English at the drop of a hat. I'll just have to live vicariously through our unborn children on this one.
2. La Pliage is all the rage.
Every female had this bag in one form or another. And I of course didn't pack mine for this trip.
3. If I were a dog, I'd live in Germany and the Czech Republic.
Why? Because dogs can go anywhere- restaurants, subway, buses, you name it! And, none of them walk on leashes. They just follow their owners, and stop and smell the flowers whenever it suits them. We saw so many cute dogs, of which we took so many photos.
4. Their strollers are insane.
The roads and many sidewalks are made of cobblestone/pavers. So, to navigate the bumpy terrain, people have huge strollers with big wheels. And almost always a pram.
5. You drink beer.
And lots of it. And it is cheap. And good. And you'll miss it when you are gone. And this is coming from a girl who usually drinks Corona Light. Beer was never my thing, and something I could never drink too much of. But by the end of the trip, even I was putting back a liter of beer.
We had a wonderful trip, and a great way to celebrate our anniversary. I can't wait to dive in on our adventure! Auf Wiedersehen! Na shledanou!
