It's kind of sinking in…

… this weekend I'll visit a new country for the first time! I don't speak German so I'm a bit anxious about that, but regardless, I look forward to it muchly! I'm going to have to put in a bit of effort tomorrow in printing directions to get from point A to point B (no way am I relying on Google maps or something when there's no guarantee of free wifi or of not being charged through the nose on data until I get where I need to go)… but tomorrow will be all about packing, getting last minute work/thesis things done (and yes emailed off to supervisor), and maybe seeing a friend who's coming in from out of town.

I'm not yet sure how I'm getting to the airport on Saturday morning at this stage, but I think that my flight is late enough this time that I'll be able to use bus 747!

I'm only gone for a week, but the volunteer schedule does look promising for my actually doing a bit of sightseeing while I'm there.

Speaking of Hamburg, does anyone absolutely need souvenirs from the area (or have recommendations as to what's worth getting from Hamburg)? I'm sure to take photos, of course, too but…!
