planning a trip to europe is not easy. in fact, it's much more time-consuming that i originally thought. jake and i are not those kind of people who plan out every single detail, every single minute, have everything booked before we go...blah blah blah. no. i booked us a rental car, and that's about it. however, i still want to feel slightly more prepared by having a small list of available and cheap hotels/hostels/nunneries/bed and breakfasts, etc., things to do, places to eat. i've emailed everyone i know who has been to the places we are going, and i've gotten some good responses with some great recommendations. then i realized that when we fly into germany, it will be the beginning of oktoberfest. geez. that means many places will be filled to full capacity, which makes me wonder--okay should i book somewhere? just when we first get there? but my senses tell me no, that we should stick to the adventure and that everything will be just fine, because it always is. my tummy is growing, and it's giving me back pain. but i embrace this and am thankful. i've been researching things for europe for the past 3 hours, in the same position sitting in my bed. that's actually probably why i have the back pain. i just can't wait for fall. it is for sure, hands down, my most favorite season. crunchy leaves, brisk air. I LOVE IT. so much to look forward to.
anyway, hope you have a happy weekend. as for me, i'll just be here planning.
