I replaced one bad week, with a much better week. On Wednesday the 24th I got excellent news that I was accepted to be one of the participants in the TOP-Goethe Institute study tour to Germany. I will be flying to Washington D.C. on June 11 and will be there a couple of days for some training and then off to Germany until June 26th. It is an all expenses paid trip to learn about modern Germany so that I can come back and teach my students.
I am really looking forward to my summer break now. For $50 the company will change my return flight back to the states if I want to stay in Europe. I would love to travel to Eastern Europe, but I am a little skeptical of doing it alone. If there is anyone out there that wants to meet me in Germany and travel around Europe for a little while this summer let me know. I am looking for a travel buddy.
