Breaking the Radio Silence

Well, I'm back. 

Or more specifically, my body is back in the United States, but my brain is somewhere on the other side of the Atlantic!  I haven't yet decompressed from our adventures or sorted through my thoughts about the trip.  Overall, it was amazing.  There were some difficult parts, but it was more or less outweighed by the great parts.

Once I've caught up from the hundreds of work and personal e-mails, adjusted to east coast time, and stopped thinking and speaking in Deunglish (totally a real thing), I'll start writing about all the things we were able to see and do!  In the mean time, it's back to my desk job so I can start saving for the next adventure!

Bis bald!

Live from Germany!


DEUTSCHLAND IST DIE WELTERMEISTER!!!

It's been 24 years, but tonight Germany proved themselves the best team. I can't believe we are here in Stuttgart to experience it. It's already 3am, so this post will be short. However, I am savouring the moment. Unbelievable. Ich kann es night glauben - I can't believe we are actually here to see, experience, and join in with the celebration! This sort of excitement rarely happens in the US!

Obviously, I will write better and more detailed posts in the future. But for tonight, I will revel in the honking cars and shouting fans.

Remember to follow me on Instagram, twitter or Facebook for updates!

Gute nacht!

Ciao, Italia! Hallo, Deutschland!

Our time in Italy is at an end. We're off to Fiuminco airport and onward to Germany! It's been great fun - loads to write about later on proper blog posts. I probably won't be able to post as frequently in Germany as we won't have hotel WiFi to use. It's time for family, friends, and fußball!!!

If I am online it will be on social media, so see my previous blog post on where to follow me!

Shameless Plugs

View from the Castel San Angelo

It's hard to blog while on the road, but so far I've been able to keep up with social media. To see some pictures, follow my traveling mishaps, help feed my growing fanatacism with Germany's National Football team, and read other random things that catch my fancy, follow me on Twitter and Instagram @thriftygypsy87 and on Facebook at The Thrifty Gypsy's Travels.

Tomorrow is our last full day in Rome. We've seen a lot, but of course there are a lot of things we won't be able to squeeze in. Guess that means we'll have to return one day! Tonight we're off to the Trevi Fountain to toss in a coin and wish for a return visit.

Ciao!
