Excited Personified

I'm getting super excited about my trip. It's like the last month of waiting has come around and the buzz has kicked in. I spend hours pouring over review sites and blogs and menus dreaming about where I'll be going in 3.5 weeks. I'm tingling with excitement that I'll be seeing the World Cup live, wearing my French tshirt and scarf and cheering Henry and Zidane in the land of sausages and saukraut and the town of spetzl and Porsche. I daydream of the tastes of Sicilian street food and again, Parisian kirs. I think about the intense lonliness and pure joy and my favourite ever feeling of the rush as the plane leaves the runway.

I just can't wait.

Oh, that rush. I'm booking my tickets for Mexico soon, and I love just dreaming about the moment when you depart! For now, guidebooks, art books, language brush-up lessons. Those are such a wonderful part of the experience as well. But nowhere near the rush of actually going. My favorite part is usually that first breath of air when you leave the terminal upon arrival.

So jealous, I was in Munich on the day of the last World Cup final, it was hilarious there were lots of drunk lederhausen clad men wandering about!
