Road Trip

German Autobahn road sign. This means no speed limit.

There is exactly 1 week until I leave for Europe. With all my visa, bank, passport, and other paperwork done with, I am finally starting to pack.

Realization: after spending 3 years in San Diego and the majority of my life in L.A., I have no adequate cold weather clothes. At least nothing that will protect me for winter in Paris. Winter wear in SD = sweatshirt, jeans, and flip flops. Except I really don't want to go shopping for winter clothes in August, so I'll find what I can and worry about it when I get there. (plus you always have more stuff coming back anyway)

I don't know if I mentioned this, but I'm road tripping around Europe with my family for 2 weeks before I start school. My dad is driving. He decided this by himself, and my mom and I are at the moment doubting his abilities. Apparently this is his "challenge" and he needs to prove to himself that he's young and can still do it (despite his slowing reflexes.). -_- Oh, dad.

We will be driving from:(I included a map for visual aid)
1. Paris, France- 2 days
2. to Zurich and Lucerne, Switzerland- 2 days
3. to Heidelberg, Germany- 2 days
4. to Amsterdam, Netherlands- 3 days
5. to Brussels, Belgium- 1 day
6. and then back to Paris.- 3 days

The total drive is supposed to be 1266mi. Wish us luck. This is going to be reaaaallyyy interesting.
