Travel round-up time!! Unless this is your very first visit to my blog, or you’ve been living under a rock, it comes as no surprise that I’m reflecting on my travels for this past year. I like to look back and see where I’ve been before I think about where I will be going. The first half of my year was actually spent more at home here in Maryland than out and about, which was a nice, albeit strange (for me) change. So here’s a month-by-month review of some of my adventures of 2018.
Sunday late morning we drug our suitcases through the subway to the station to catch our train to Oberkochen. Thank god for the station master who connected with us over American football (he has a friend from DUNDALK of all places) and helped us figure out that our train splits in two halfway through the journey so we’d better get on the correct half – success on that front.
Remember that time I went to Germany last month? I honestly can’t believe it’s been a month already; work’s been a little slow and life been more than a little nuts and I’d be perfectly content to go back and sit out on J’s balcony with the light stretching on until 10 pm, looking out over the town to the wooded hills beyond, imagining just how far we could walk without running into a highway. When my friend Jordana moved to Germany last year and made an open invitation to visit I knew I would take her up on it and soon. It was a nice change to have a trip that centered around visiting a friend rather than cramming in as much as possible and I think we managed a balance around the two.
