Road trip to Poland

Last weekend I had the chance to take a road trip to Boleslawiec, Poland with some of my American friends. Poland is known for pottery. So needless to say we were all pretty excited to see what we could find. Unfortunately, the car ride took a lot longer than anticipated. In the period of our two day trip, we were in the car for about 27 hours. I couldn't believe all the adventures we encountered in such a short period of time. We had a two and a half hour detour to start out with due to one of the girls forgetting her passport. I was shocked that it wasn't me, seeing as I forget things all the time. Then the car battery died. When we finally got to Poland, we basically sat at the Polish border for 2 hours waiting to go through. And to tell you the truth, I still don't know why. During that time sitting there, we were all attacked by tons of tiny bugs. I swear I'm still washing them out of my hair. Ha! Just when we thought nothing else could happen to us, we realized that "Lola" the GPS had led us two and a half hour detour off road in the wrong direction. By the time we arrived at pottery stores, we only had a few hours to shop. I only ended up getting a few pieces because I couldn't decide in such a short time. On our way back, we stopped in Germany for some dinner at Pizza Hut. I have been craving American brand foods for quite some time. So I was in heaven. I will always cherish this trip with the girls. Even though 27 hours were spent driving, we had great quality time talking the entire time.I had such a blast. Thanks for a great time girls. I can't wait to do it again soon!

When I got home, I noticed that my amazing husband had cleaned our apartment from top to bottom. He even organized all the drawers. Isn't he just so cute!?! I've showed him my appreciation by encouraging Josh go backpacking through Italy this weekend with his buddy. Ha! I'm sure he'll have as much fun as I did on my trip. I love you Sweetie!

Rhinefalls is the biggest waterfall in Europe. While it's only 75 feet tall, it's also 450 feet wide. and it's only 45 minutes away from us in a staht (city) called Schafhausen. It was absolutely beautiful. On the walk down to see it, there were a few little falls as well. We found a restaurant for lunch that overlooks the view of the falls. We just relaxed while enjoying a great pasta dish. It can't get any better than that. And for only 6 bucks, we were able to take a boat right up to the middle rock, then climb to the top to see how big this waterfall really was. It definitely looks a lot more powerful when you're up close to it. It actually kind of scared me a bit. ha! But it was well worth the boat ride over.

Castle Munot

When walking through Schafhausen we came across this staircase that led us up to the castle we didn't even know was there. It was different from the other castles I've seen here. Instead of stairs inside, it just wound around clear to the top. When we got inside, we could all hear music that sounded like horns echoing throughout the entire place. So we hiked to the top, and ended up seeing three men playing "Alphorns". We enjoyed the incredible view from above while listening to them play. It definitely gave me the feel of Switzerland. Thanks Jess for taking some great candid shots of us.
