I apologize for the bad pun, but that was just ONE of the cheesy T-shirt sayings I say today in my walk around town. Also, let me state for the record, I’ve been in town for about 5 1/2 hours now and Praha certainly lives up to it’s reputation! I’ll have a full report a little later, but suffice to say I’ve gotten more culture so far here than anywhere else since I’ve left Malmo… and that includes the Erotica Museum! Continue reading
Well… It seems you can’t buy a bus ticket where the bus picks you up. Of course, by the time I discovered this, the agents office was closed. So I’m stuck in Copenhagen for the night and will be taking a train out at 7:45 in the morning. I’m in a hostel so it’s all good (although I was thinking about just sleeping at the train station but decided against it this early in the adventure.
This doesn’t change anything, still in Berlin tomorrow. Did have a wonderful day so far in Copenhagen and will write more about that soon.
It was a lazy Sunday… essentially, I haven’t been sleeping well – I go to bed late, waking up every couple hours and then sleeping later than I would like. So today seemed to be a day of catch up. Malin had stuff to do so I ended up hanging out trying to read. Continue reading
I have arrived safely in Malmo Sweden. There will be a complete update later tonight.
I’m at the airport, about an hour to go until wheels up. see you on the other side of the world!
So I’m on Skype (skidspoppe for those interested) and since I’m gonna be teaching a class while I’m over there in Europe I figured I should have a number where my students can get hold of me (and friends, too) so I got a Skype number so you can all call me and leave messages or talk to me if I happen to be on the computer.

Okay, so i went and visited my friend Ronn yesterday and he said I had done well with my purchases. My backpack is great and the various items I have are all appropriate. He did give me a few items I was shy on and a bit of advice so I feel much better. Of course, I still need to get an adapter/converter. Continue reading
Two weeks from Thursday the adventure begins. Of course, it begins a little earlier than I’d like since I have to stop at the clinic on my way to the airport to get the second of my three hepatitis B&C vaccinations.
As it stands now, I think I have everything I’ll need (except a power adapter/converter) but I’m meeting with a friend who does a lot of backpacking who said he’d lend me anything I was shy on. Continue reading
Take a look at these toilets in Amsterdam, a city I will be visiting.
This is a definite difference in culture.
Well, I just did it. I purchased my ticket to Malmo Sweden (landing in Copenhagen Denmark) via Minneapolis and Reykjavik. I leave on May 29th at 11:30am, arriving in Denmark at 12:45pm the next day.
I also picked up some more gear. Everything is coming together. This is getting exciting and a little bit scary. Or maybe a little scary and a bit exciting!
Either way, I’m on my way!
