Hi. I’m going to ramble on and on.
I’m in Berlin, Germany. This is my second time here in a month. I first arrived from Vietnam almost exactly a month ago. I ended up staying that time for two awesome weeks where I had way too much fun, and spent way more than I could have or should have. But whatever, that was the point of this Eurotrip.
So then I made some silly decisions. Instead of just staying in Berlin, where all the awesome is, I figured I’d go to Prague and then on to Vienna to visit an ex. Not sure what I was thinking with that one, but whatever. I got out of there and now I’m back in Berlin. Whew!
And tonight I’m going to see the final Harry Potter film! It’s the little things that start to cheer me up now that I’ve been traveling for so long. I’m definitely beginning to feel exhausted of traveling, and anxious to see friendly faces. It probably doesn’t help that last weekend, for three not-long-enough days, my parents came into town.
Last weekend my parents flew into Berlin so they could visit me. I haven’t seen them since last May. I’d ordered a new computer and they kindly offered to bring it to me in Europe, so we arranged to meet in Berlin. As always, it was nice to be spoiled. And, since I’ve been without music since March, they even brought me an iPod! Like I said, it’s often the littler things that make me happy. Movies and music.
Of course, now that I have this half-baked plan of living in Berlin for a month or two, I could use some other things to make me happy. A place to live, for one. I’m going to keep working at it, and try to give this plan a shot. Because I really do want to stay here longer. And I really don’t think I’m just quite ready to go home.
I don’t know what’s going to happen over the next few weeks. But whatever. I’ll just keep smiling and hope for a little luck.
