July 30, 2006
Tomorrow me and Sarah are off to Berlin to start our tour of a week. Our plans to travel the continent have diminshed significantly since we started to discuss the possibilities of seeing everything, plunging ourselves into a continental adventure. I, being of the curious continental species among the two of us, was going to be “ze ekspert guide”. “I want to go to Paris”, Sarah said, and I nodded. “We’ll make a stopover in Brussels and stay with friends of mine”, I proposed.
Soon came the realistic idea to drop Paris. Who’d go to Berlin and further east via Paris if they’d only have one week? What mad idea come over us?
Then, not much later, I realised that in fact going to Brussels was equally costly and inefficient given the enormous distances we’d have to travel to be there for just two days.
And now, for the second time this year, I’ll be on the way to Berlin by coach. We’re staying with friends, and plunging ourselves into a German summer adventure. After which Tuczno near Poznan (Poland), Warsaw, Bratislava, and Budapest will follow. I can’t wait!
