Last Legs

I arrived in Germany a couple of days ago, but not without some scars to remind me of my trip. My legs which had been so badly damaged (but so brilliant repaired) in Ethiopia were once again crushed en route to Germany. Fortunately my friend Matthias has me in his care, and hopefully I will be back in walking/hopping/skipping shape sometime soon.

Anyway, keep an eye out for updates as they become available! Perhaps in the near future I'll be announcing my entrance into the Gnome Paralympics.

I'm almost to Germany (at least I think so - the days are starting to blend together), but during my journey I finally heard back from my friends in Sweden (the ones I met in Fort Lauderdale) and it looks like I'll be traveling there! We are still straightening out the details of when (I could be going straight from Germany, but it depends on if I'll be able to get back in time for my trip to Portland), but I am very excited about the prospect of visiting Scandinavia for the first time!

Next time you hear from me, I'll be in Germany - safe travels!

Back across the Atlantic

While the snow melts away in Georgia, I am now on my way to Germany where I will probably be for the next few weeks. Updates might be sporadic between now and then, but as soon as I have pictures/stories to share, I'll make sure to put them on there.

As always, if you are going to be traveling to somewhere I haven't been before and want some company along your trip, make sure to let me know!

So I found out yesterday that my planning for Birmingham was mistaken - the tournament is next weekend, not this one. So I've decided to travel to Germany tomorrow instead of waiting an additional week for a trip to Alabama.

However, staying an extra week resulted in good news - it's snowing in Atlanta! This is our first snow of the year (and I'd predict our last), and actually the first snow I've ever seen. So I stepped outside of my home to take a few pictures with my roommate Luke - check them out if you'd like. :)

Tomorrow: off to Deutschland!
