Back home from an awesome vacation


Not exactly news to those who follow me on Twitter, but we've been traveling Texas and a small part of New Mexico (as it was on the way) in an RV, thus it is time to update The Map™:

That's twentyone US states I've visited so far!

"Nuremberg, Germany (unfortunately)"

Why unfortunately? I love your country!

Glad you had a good trip

Thanks, we had a great vacation! This time I even took notes (after the LJ app ate a half-done post), I'll try to make it a travel report eventually.

And "unfortunately", because that means the vacation is over. But yes, there a so many places in Germany I've never been to, but I'm saving that for another time.

I find it funny to see Location: Nuremberg, Germany (unfortunately).

I'm in Seattle now, back where you just came from (at least in terms of the country :) ), and think, "wow, I'd so like to be over in Germany right now."

I guess the grass IS always greener, so to speak.

(EDIT: And I promise you, I posted mine without looking at the one above. :) )

Well, the grass is greener here than in the areas of Texas we went to. But the sky is definitely bluer over there ;-)

Oh, and I love Seattle, even though I don't know if I'd want to live there. The traffic (and driver attitude) is worse than in Nuremberg, on the other hand, the ocean. I miss the ocean.

(Ironically, my craving for the sea resulted in the first two mosquito bites of the year.)

I'll actually have to agree with you on the traffic. If you try to go anywhere during rush hours (7 to 9am, 4 to 6pm), it's terrible. Luckily, I work flexible enough hours that I can basically avoid those times entirely and once you get out of those hours, it gets much better quickly. Also, in a few years, the light rail will have a station near my house, so hopefully that will help some as well.

But yeah, that's the one real negative of here.

you've been to six more than I have :P :)

Believe it or not, I've only been to 15 of the 16 states of Germany (and spent a night just in 13.) But then again, why exactly would anybody visit Saarland without having business to do there?
