Thereisienwiese, here we come!
And.... the European Vacation is booked! First stop - Oktoberfest!! Yeah baby!
I've been thinking I'd like to check out the world-famous beer festival for quite some time now, and this year I decided to just do it. Life is way too short to put things off.... and you know me.... when have I ever been one to not do exactly what I want!? LOL!
So.... On October 3rd, we fly into Frankfurt, where we pick up a rental car and begin the whirlwind tour. On the agenda of course is Munich, and from there (after recovering from an inevitable overindulgence of Lowenbrau) it will be a free-for-all! No set itinerary is in place, but hopefully the sights of Austria, Slovenia, Italy, Switzerland, France, and maybe even Luxembourg and Belgium (mmmmm chocolate!!) will fill our days. I can't wait!!
For now however, I have many, many kilometres of hiking to enjoy. This weekend I have plans to spend more amazing outside time in the Rockies, and I leave next week for a backpacking trip in the Yukon. Then my Sister is coming mid-September for a visit - yaaayyyy! I am so excited to see her! - and shortly after that, I will be packing for Europe.
It really all comes down to there being so much to do and so many places to go in this world, but so little time. **SIGH** Gotta make the most of every minute!!
