Germany and Georgia: Prologue
Strolling through the sun-baked park towards my croquet ball, mallet over my shoulder, it seemed like months had passed since we’d come to Victoria to spend a few days with Sarah’s parents in the interim between our apartment move-out date and our departure for Europe. After packing up the apartment and shoving it into a storage locker, we booted it down to Tsawwassen to catch an afternoon ferry. With the stress of moving and packing an apartment behind us, we’ve been leisurely dealing with those last minute travelling supplies, eating a lot of great food, and getting out in the sun to enjoy the local parks and waterfront scenery.
The only negative event during our time on the Island was that we’d planned to finally take the sailing lessons Sarah had given me for my last birthday, but after nearly a year of trying to schedule lessons and having them fall through, we were foiled once again and forced to take a refund in lieu of the class we’d booked just days before our flight to Zurich.
Vancouver & Beyond
Today we catch a boat back to the mainland so we can tie up a few loose ends in Vancouver before our Wednesday morning flight into Zurich. From there we skip over the border to Konstanz, Germany, where we’ll be staying with Sarah’s grandparents. There are no distinct plans on the books for our first days in Germany, besides recovering from jet lag and exploring the surrounding area before our flight to Tbilisi on April 24th.
A big impetus for this trip was my desire to work on some photographic projects, so I’ve already set myself up to spend more time organizing and processing images while away. This means more frequent blog and photo updates. To follow along you can catch updates through a combination of these places:
