t minus 14 days.....

And so the two week count down to my grand european adventure begins folks. and i have to admit, i feel pretty unprepared. but i have been brushing up on my german. I've been reading the liahona auf deutsch and watching disney movies on youtube also auf deutsch. not to mention the book i've been reading for classes on vienna. which has been very infomative and sligtly mind numbing. and yet i trudge on and slightly enjoy it.

so things of interest to other people. i'm stayin right in the ring of the city.... i'm very excited. it'll be right along the danube, which isn't a very pretty river. but it's still very exciting. i'll be about a 15-20 minute walk from the school. which is near the imperial palace, the national history and art museums and stephans platz.

and when i get there. the first night, i will be staying at the Pension Baronesse... yeah. it looks amazing doesn't it? i'm just so excited to be right there in the history of everything! my dad said the house i'm staying in is probably pre WWII. but my birthday weekend, we'll be going to the old Roman ruins near Vienna!!! ahhh! i'm crazy excited! i'd love everyone to keep in touch. i'll be posting picture here and on facebook as i document my grand european adventure. i'll miss everyone of course. but this is my dream come true after all.... signing off for now!

Eh hem!
I hope your days before your trip are fruitful! Remember how much you love your family and be sure to let them know. you'll be gone for a long while! I know you don't need to be told, but we sometimes forget to say things when it comes to family.
Wow. You're leaving. that is something! Make it great!
