About Me

O satisfy us in

the morning with

Your lovingkindness,

That we may sing

for joy and be glad

all our days.

And another short blog

Hello, everyone. I'm sorry, I'm a little behind. Quickly:

Last weekend we were in Munich. Friday we took a train to see Neuschwanstein, that famous Disneyland castle. We saw another castle too. I liked them. Saturday we walked around Munich and saw the Glockenspiel, which is a massive-size cuckoo clock idea, except instead of a bird, it's a bunch of people on a track. Sunday we went to an art museum and saw some really pretty stuff and came home. I get the feeling I already said all this.

This past week,.... I hardly remember it. It's been full of planning and not really getting schoolwork done before deadlines, though it all turned out remarkably well. Lots of it was reading, so it didn't matter too much, but I'm really glad Dr. Taylor is really flexible on paper deadlines, because the one due today I plan to turn in after spring break. About the planning, Justin has been trying to plan spring break. It's been pretty stressful because transportation information isn't as centralized in the UK or in Spain as here, so he's worked on the internet all the time to find stuff out and reserve tickets and hostels and stuff. I think it's finally worked out, mostly, which is good since we're leaving tonight!

Also, I'm sick--some sore throat, achey body, little congestion, and weak, so please pray for me.

A quick itinerary:

Thursday (tonight): train around 7 to Lugano to Zurich to Paris to London, arriving Friday morning around 9.

Friday: head immediately to Windsor by bus to see Windsor castle, take bus to Oxford to spend the night.

Saturday: see Oxford, spend the night in Oxford

Sunday: head to the Cotswolds, an area westish of Oxford, where there are cute little towns and pretty countryside. Spend the night in Cheltenham.

Monday: more Cotswolds, night in Cheltenham.

Tuesday: bus back to London, spend day in London, spend night in London

Wednesday: fly out to Reus, take bus to Barcelona and then to Tossa (neat little city slightly more northeast), spend day and night in Tossa.

Thursday: Tossa day and night

Friday: Tossa day and night

Saturday: Tossa day and night

Sunday: bus to Girona, spend day in Girona, catch train to Figueres, train from Figueres to Milan to Capolago to the Casa Monday morning for class! (class will have already started).

I really hope we get rested up. We tried to plan this trip so it's more restful than the others have been, and even though we are moving around a lot, we're actually staying in a couple of more restful places for a few days. Yay. I can't wait. I'm so tired.

Alright, well, better go. I'll write stuff when I come back. Sorry it's been so brief lately with little interesting details... though that makes it easier to read too.
