Touring Germany. The Fast Version.

I’ll wrap up our European vacation with a few pictures of each of the places we visited in Germany. After Belgium, we took the train to Frankfurt, Germany.  While we had a few train mishaps with missed connections, delays, and a few standing-room only legs, I am still a great fan of mass transit.  You […]

Belgium’s Natural Beauty, French Food, and History Was A Great Start For Our Trip

My dad and I returned from our trip to Europe last Wednesday, and I jumped in with both feet to a work project which lasted through the weekend. So, I’m just now getting back on board with normal life. Or as normal as life can be around here. But before I get too far away, […]

When A Trip Plans Itself, It’s Best To Just Play Along

Since I had to cancel the apartment in Nuremberg, we needed a place to stay for three nights. The hotel in Frankfurt let us extend our stay another night, but my dad really wanted to go to Augsburg where he spent some time in the army in 1950ish. Unbeknownst to me, our trip coincided with […]

Best Laid Plans Are Bound To Fall Apart

After visiting my great-uncle’s grave at Henri-Chappelle American Military Cemetery, we were right on track to return the car in Liege and take a train to Frankfurt, the only one without connections.

My dad and I arrived safely in Belgium Sunday morning. We rented a car to drive to Bastogne, about an hour and a half east of Brussels and only 15 miles or so from the Luxembourg border. I’ve never driven in a foreign country, and this was a great place to get acclimated. The drive […]

Live the rest of your life ‘with the end in mind’

One of the habits from Stephen Covey’s book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, is to “begin with the end in mind.”  When you’re talking about your life, that’s a bit hard to do.  A newborn baby is only looking for his next meal, after all.  As kids, I imagine many kids dream about […]
