Wanderlust, anyone?

I have been planning a dream adventure for months. Dream, as in, I wasn't sure if it was going to happen this year.

This is my dream: Swiss railway journeys...

However, I'm starting to think that we may be able to pull it off. Two weeks ago our friend Emili introduced us to airfarewatchdog.com and I have been exposed to some mind-blowing airfares. I have the site cued in to show me the prices of flights out of the Raleigh/Durham airport, and I have access to a constantly updated list of the best airfares out of North Carolina.

After doing some research I have figured out that the best way to have the dream adventure is to wait until September, right after the high travel season in Europe is past. But for now? I have been keeping myself busy with a cute little round trip airfare to San Francisco for $122. Yes, you read that right. It's almost too cheap to resist.

Wanderlust, anyone?

I was just thinking about you and all the times you've gone to Germany (cause I'm reading The Book Thief), wondering when you would pack up and head off to Europe again--hasn't it been a while? Of course with school and all, it's not so easy. But I'm glad to see your travel spirit is still in there! Hope you get to go!

Hallo Liebste! So schön dein letzter Blog-Eintrag über deine Traumreise in die Schweiz ;-) Du hast recht, eine Reise mit der Schweizer Bahn ist wirklich empfehlenswert und ermöglicht im Anschluss wunderschöne Wanderungen - siehe mein Facebook-Album vom 23/05. Liebe Grüsse und vielleicht bis bald, irgendwo in Europa?! Deine Stella.

Where did you find $122 airfare to SF? Matt and I are dying to go! Hope to see you two soon. (Your mom is so adorable! Hope she had a great visit.)

I completely share your travel bug. Do it now!!!! Andrew and I sat down and thought realistically about bringing Luke to Europe...we decided it's muri for right now.

You may definitely come stay with us in Columbus anytime! We have a guest bed in the basement for that very purpose. We live about 2.5 hours from Kirtland and about 7 hours from Palmyra. I usually go to Kirtland, stay the night at Andrew's parents and then make the rest of the trek to Palmyra (usually?...I've done it once). Anyway, you are always welcome. We've been thinking about visiting you in NC...more on that later.

What to do with that degree...
International business? More missions? Govt. service? (Your grandfather would love it).

Oh no, not another degree!! (That would be great too).
