Dachau´s Gate

Dachau´s Gate

    Good Morning from Munchen!  We have loved Germany and everyone is so glad we came.  We got here late Saturday night.  Found this hostel, A&O and are very pleased.  Taylor is rooming with 5 of us in a 6 person room and the other 5 are in the room next door.  Very similar to Florence Plus.  Must saz, that one thing that has not changed about Germanz is that it is hard to communicate.  I just spent an hour with the Eurail Pass desk getting tickets to Barcelona from Zurich on an overnight train and then our overnight from Barcelona to Paris.  This is after speaking to 4 different people yesterday that told me that there was no room on these trains. . . I will have to explain it all later, but wanted to just say we loved Munich and are headed to Barcelona.   We will have 2 days in Barcelona and then an overnight to Paris and 2 days there and then Saturday start our trek home.  :(  I as usual will not be readz to return.  I will be readz to get back to a countrz were it is easier to communicate.  The train travel was the most difficult to manage since we have been here.  Oh well.  We are having a restful morning and donät leave until 12:34.  So, i am hoping to find an internet place with USB so zou can see pictures. . . they are priceless.  I have got some cute traveling companions!!  and super fun ones!!  I have laughed more in this past week than I have in months.  I know it is a trip of a lifetime for the boys and especially those traveling abroad for the first time, but it is for me too!

Okaz, to the showers and then in search of internet with USB!!

LATER --- Well, i found a USB port as zou can see.  But it is unbelievablz slow.  We are about to leave for Zurich.  Then we have a 2 hour break before our night train to Barcelona.  I will have to trz and find a faster internet connection with USB in Zurich maybe??  And hopefullz this gosh awful y and z will be back in order.  it is driving me crayz.  Anzwaz, we are off to Zurich.  Enjoz the few photos we got up.  hopefullz more later.

AH! Finally the SWIMSUIT picture. Quite stunning. I see they were smart enough to show their better half! Waiting to here more adventures from the last leg of the trip. Hope the video action cam is still in working order.

yep...I decided that they dont want to communicate there...just grunt a lot! I took German in college and when I tried to speak it there they thought I was speaking Spanish...go figure ...at this point Patterson is saying something under his breath about operator error, I am sure! Why have I not found this pinup picture??? Again...operator error on my part?Enough of yall speak Spanish or have been on mission trips where they do that I am confident the Barcelona adventure will go smoothly! Blessings...Kelley

I am eagerly anticipating your response to Barcelona, a favorite city of mine...lots of Gaudi and rambles and medieval buildings and such. Sumner, got the email postponing tea and scones. That's fine; just call when you get over jet lag and we'll reschedule. You all are really seasoned travelers now, aren't you?
Keep having fun,
Mrs. A

So proud of how artistically you posed for the swimsuit photo, David and Patterson! You must surely be planning the "Boys of Travel" calendar. . .it's a thought!! You're all in our prayers in a big way on this last leg of your trip. You'll love Barcelona - go see the monastary on the top of the mountain if you have time - that was my favorite part. Lots of Gaudi and the Picasso museum shows there's much more to him than you ever imagined. Tell Martin I said 'be sweet'! Take care. Mary Scott

Just got off the phone with your Mother and she LED me to Lucille's journal. What fun y'all are having!!!!!!!! Can't wait to sit & read about the whole trip. We are in Texas for my 18 year check-up - can you believe that?
Have fun - safe trip.
