Upcoming Travel Plans!

Traveling, exploring, seeing the world - that's what life is all about! So here's a quick little post about where I'm gearing up to head next. 

Mini-Europe Tour

Mom is headed across the pond to visit me for the first time, so in addition to exploring my home in Munich, Germany, we will be making trips into Italy, San Marino,Czech Republic, Austria, Switzerland, and Lichtenstein.  These are all countries I have been before, but I am looking forward to showing my mom around Europe and making some really amazing memories!

I don't know if Europe is ready for the two of us!

Moldova and Ukraine

At the end of August we will be flying into Chisinau before taking a marshrutka over to Odessa for a few days in that beautiful city as well as an excursion to the Danube Delta.  The reason for this trip is that the Danube Delta has long been on Mario's mom's to-see list and we're invited along for the adventure and as the designated translators ;) 

Four years ago dancing the night away in Odessa with my girl Karolina. I have a feeling that this trip to Odessa will be quite different from that one...

Central America 

As summer is coming to a close here in Germany, we'll be heading over for our end of the summer vacation in a part of the world which neither of us has previously explored.  I'll be happy to have Mario along, as my Spanish skills are all but non-existent. It's definitely going to be an adventure for the books and I am sure there will be all sorts of stories and pictures to share!

I'll just leave this picture here while I get back to lesson planning and drinking hot tea while rain pours down outside my window
