Day 1: Ready…Set…

Hi Everyone,

Are you ready for the travelwithmyselfandothers.com third world trip?!? It’s about to begin in less than 24 hours! Follow along my path of travel through Germany for a month and a half. I’ll be joining friends for the Dresden Music Festival first, revisit Weimar and Leipzig, then spend a month in Berlin studying German at the Goethe Institute.

After that, I meet up with hubby Gee Kin in Beijing to revisit Mongolia, Russia, and Japan to complete my 80 days around the world. It’s a follow-up tour from last year, where we took three-fourths of the Trans-Siberian Express (the Mongolian portion) from Beijing to Moscow.

This year, we are completing the full TSE route from Irkutsk, Russia to the east coast border town of Vladivostok. We are curious to see if it is a boom town full of economic activity. In case you’re not sure, just ask Sarah Palin! She can see what’s going on from her living room window!!

After that, we’ll fly to Japan to decompress on an ancient highway that connected Kyoto to Edo. It’s in the middle of Honshu, where we’ll also visit Matsumoto Castle, Nagano, and hot springs in the area.

Not much visuals to share yet, except for a weather report that I keep on my phone of all the upcoming cities (not necessarily in that order). See below.

Hang on, and hope you enjoy the ride with me. Write if you get a chance, I love hearing from you! (If you find the email notifications annoying, you can always opt out and follow manually by visiting the website directly at https://travelswithmyselfandothers.com/

Auf Wiedersehen, Viele Gruße, and Tschuss!!

    1. You’d think I’d get tired of this business, but this year I look forward to a mellowing approach to traveling to some familiar places, and indulging in a few places I didn’t do much justice to the first time around. I now have my feet firmly placed in Germany and am able to take friends to see some of my favorite places! I just saw a lovely travel clip on the Lufthansa flight over here. It reminded me about all the wonderful sights here–the history, the music, the art, the technology–and everything an architect loves!! Plus I saw a video of Il Trovatore with Anna Netrebko at the 2014 Salzburger Festival and a highly recommended movie “How to be Single” that every woman should see. These were a great launch to my first day!

      2. Grüße von Berlin! Schon habe ich mein Deutschkurs angefangen. Es ist sehr interessant und produktiv. Wenn mein Partner am ersten Tag hat mir vorgestellte, sagte er “Viktoria ist mehr als 21 Jahre alt”!

    1. Thanks Farris. I’ll try my best not to get into any trouble. I will be with friends most of the time so less likely to go astray. I am my own worse enemy at times! See you when I return to the big bad U-S-S-A. Maybe Trump will be the Republican nominee by then!
