I use the word “book” loosely but I made concrete preparations for two separate trips today:
1)I have arranged for a car-sharing service from Freiburg on Friday at 3.15am and drive to Rorschach, Switzerland, arriving around 6am. I’ll take a train to Buchs, then a bus to Vaduz-Schaan, Lichtenstein. I’ll hang out there a couple of hours, then take the bus back across a river i’m presuming and then a train for about 40 minutes south to Chur, the oldest town in Switzerland. At 5pm I’ve arranged another car-share all the way back to Freiburg around 8-9pm.
Costs: 2 car-shares and two train rides: 50 euros, another 25 euros for food, what not.
2)I have bought plane tickets from Zurich to Bucharest to Iasi, Romania for March 28-April 5, 2010. It will be my second time in Romania, the first being in May 2008. I will be there this time to teach English for a few hours, and then have the rest of the time free to explore. Some of the teachers there will arrange some trips for me, including a two-night stay at/near the painted monasteries in the NE corner of Romania. I plan to be at the midnight mass and possibly even sleep at the monastery one of the nights. I’ll also do a half day-trip to Moldava while there, and maybe even another photo exhibition but I’m not sure. This trip is paid for (flight, accommodations) and the teaching I do for free. I like.
I did other stuff today too but it’s probably not as exciting but it could be.
