Yay, vacation

Only six days left until we're on our trip to the Black Forest.
I've been there three times back in the 90s, and I love this part of Germany the most, with its tall and dark pine woods, wild cascades and valleys and small villages.
So many things can be done there, from hiking to mining for pre-precious gems, siwmming in big lakes, glass blowing, riding roller coasters and enjoying the hearty dishes this area has to offer. We'll reside in a youth hostel, what is a former, traditional Black Forest farm house. I'll post pictures once we're back.

Can't wait for the six days to be over.

Oh, that sounds like so much fun! The glass-blowing, in particular; it's something I'd love to be able to learn how to do, even though it likely will never happen. I hope you have a great trip!

I also hope the note I dropped in the mail to you gets there before you go! It might, but if it doesn't, then it'll be there when you get back. :)

Funny, I just posted a story that's about taking a trip...it kinda/sorta fits! :P

I was just reading your story, it was so much fun and fits perfectly to our weather here. We were in a public pool yesterday and are both a little bit sunburnt, so the line about visiting a beach and sunburns made me giggle.

As for the trip, I'm so excited to go there again. I even picture me going there for good in my golden years.
For now I want to show Skadi this part of Germany and she's looking forward to it. I don't know if she'll do the glass-blowing, but I certainly will. The glass kiln I know offers to try it out for 15 Euros, and I can take the vase home if I was successful, so I need to try that out XD.
We'll most likely do a day-trip to Lake Constance as well. I can see lots of picture-taking on my vacations XD
