Spreading the Word

Annelise and I were out in Uptown Normal last night celebrating with friends the fact that after our summer of adventures I will call Hannover, Germany my new home. As we chilled outside of the late night necessity, Prime Time Pizza, I decided to tell everyone passing by "I'M MOVING TO GERMANY!" It was fun hearing the varying reactions of everyone.

"Oh my gosh that's soo amazing!! For real?!?!" -- A Group of College Girls.

"Wow...that's umm...Far?" --Random Bar Bouncer.

"Awesome! I'm from the Czech Republic!" --Coffeehouse Owner.

"GOOD FOR YOU!!!" --Crowd Outside Maggie Miley's.

By far the highlight, though, was meeting the guy in this picture! He was genuinely excited about not only my coming move but especially the street musician adventure Annelise and I are just three weeks away from starting. He was so thrilled about the concept that he wanted us to write our blog on his arm!!!

Random guy who loved us, thank you for your support!!!

  1. Just read about your plans in the paper this morning. It said you plan a 100-day trip. Are you aware of the Schengen Agreement, which limits visitors to 90 days in most of western Europe? The clock starts when you enter a Schengen country (France, Germany, etc.) and ends 180 days later. During that time you cannot spend more than a total of 90 days in Schengen countries. Overstaying in Schengen can subject you to fines or being unable to return to the Schengen Zone for up to 10 years. So make sure you spend any period of time over 90 days in someplace like the UK, which is not a part of Schengen. You can take the extra days in the middle of your trip and reenter Schengen, but 90 days within Schengen Zone countries is the maximum.
