Today is the big day. I am going to Paris! That sounds so weird to say. I never thought that I would actually get to go to Paris. I had always imagined myself walking down the streets of Paris, standing in awe of the eiffel tower, and enjoying French food, but I figured this image would simply remain in my head. The closest I ever expected to get to Paris was watching National Lampoon's European Vacation or my new favorite Julie and Julia.
Well today, that image of Paris will not only be limited to my head, or my tv screen. It is about to become a reality and living within driving distance is an even crazier thought to absorb.
The morning has already gotten off to a rocky start however. Not only is it cold and rainy but our phones have been shut off due to an ongoing problem with the phone company. If you ever move to Germany. Do NOT use Vodafone as your cell phone provider. They are the devil.
Well, off to be a stupid tourist...pictures to come!
