Reasons Three-Fold + July 1, 2009

I refuse to let a month go by without blogging, and one month is knocking on my door, so here goes...

Our reasons for not writing, I've decided, are three-fold.

#1 We both work for the state now and anything we say can and will be used against us in a court of law.

#2 A new country, a new apartment, a new car, two new jobs, being around friends and family again = little to no time to write.

and finally,

#3 We're not flitting about in France anymore or meeting magical ferries in Greece - we work, go to Target and watch HGTV. Trying to make that interesting, or even reporting on it at all, is a challenge. And to tell the funny, ironic truths about work and going to Target, leads us back to #1 and the possible expulsion from our current places of work.

Sooooo...what does one do?

Well, for today, I'm going to go way back in time and touch on a tiny part of our European adventure that never got properly blogged about.

Final Day in Europe: Luzern, Switzerland; July 1, 2009

Summer tobogganing is actually one of my favorite pastimes. It's something I wish I could build in Texas because I know Texans old and young would love it too.

You start at the top of a scenic Swiss mountain, then hop on a metal tobaggan and away you go.

My parents definitely got a kick out of it.

Chris and I had a blast.

We flew down the mountain at break-neck speeds and giggled the entire time.

A very successful last day.

After coming off the mountain we had some dinner in town, crossed the lovely bridges, and made our way into a candy store.

All in all, a great last day in Europe.

We woke at 5 a.m. the next morning to catch our flight home and the rest is history.

As I look through the pictures today I realize there's a lot that you haven't seen. I'll try to par them back and add some never before seen footage soon. Maybe a director's commentary, some bonus features.

Until then...
