whatever happened to aging gracefully? it got old.

January 11, 2008

Well I made it to Germany. It was quite the voyage. Took a walk, a bus, a plane, and a car, but I’m here. My time in German has not been very extensive, I’ve bussed across it then ridden a train back across it stopping in Berlin for a day and a night, but I’ve always really enjoyed it. I was already enjoying it as we flew in. All I could see was green grass, fields, hills, and trees. In January that’s always a sight that pleases me. It wasn’t nearly as cold as I expected. Kind of feels like January in Georgia. It’s a little rainy as well. By the time we got back here I’d been up and traveling for 9 hours so I was content to run around with Mandy for a little while. My appetite has finally come back with force. So much for losing weight by not eating. Guess I’ll have to actually exercise. Blah. Anyway – back to Germany. Today we had to drive to Frankfurt to pick up one of her friends so I got to see a lot of the countryside. We saw a few castles and a few dozen adorable little towns. It also seems to be wine country here. There are vineyards growing at ninety degree angles on the hills here. There are also two huge sundials built into the side of the hill. Guess they want to make sure no one can dispute work times in the vineyards. There’s also a river running through the area here, and there’s nothing like a river to make me love an area even more. It’s so beautiful here. I discovered yesterday that my company does not have the ugliest flight attendant uniforms. It was quite reassuring. Still not sure if they’re pretty enough to keep me there, but I’m on vacation so I’m not worrying about that. And since I’m on vacation I’m enjoying sitting on the couch, watching episode after episode of shows I love, laughing with Mandy and her friends, and just relaxing.Tomorrow we’re going to pick out the castle that I’ll be moving into when I come back here. There are enough airplanes, military guys, and pretty little villages to keep me amused. At least for a while :-P.
