Tomorrow, tomorrow--we leave tomorrow!

Well our bags are almost packed, and we are busily taking care of last minute things. We are limiting ourselves to one carry on sized suitcase on wheels, not because of baggage fees since we are allowed to check luggage for international flights, but because of ease of travel. Most of our travel advice and info comes from a man named Rick Steves. Do you know him? :) www.ricksteves.com We will be purchasing things while we are there, but we will either ship things back or buy a backpack/suitcase while we are there and fill it with our treasures.

Many of the hotels we will be staying in will have wifi, so we are going to try our best to blog and update our facebook page every day. Many thanks go out to my niece, Katelyn, for lending us her mini netbook so we can skype to keep in touch with our friends and family back home and blog. Don't worry, I won't forget to bring back a little something for you in my suitcase. :o)

After our overnight flight tomorrow, we will arrive in Munich Thursday afternoon and rush as fast as we can to the nearest taxi stand. The taxi will be taking us to Dachau, the first Nazi concentration camp opened in Germany. We have to go right there because if we stop at our hotel first, we won't make it in time before it closes. It will be a strange and sobering way to begin our fairy tale journey, but we are both fascinated with World War II, and this will be a great learning experience for us.

Please write us comments and questions here as well as our facebook page. If you have difficulty posting a comment, you might need to have a gmail or google account, but that is very easy to create.
