A Blogger Blind Date and River Surfing!

I took a day trip to Munich yesterday, kind of on a whim. A blogger friend of mine, Christine, is in Munich for a month while her husband is working there. I couldn't miss the opportunity to meet someone new so we set a date. The night before my friend said it sounded kind of like a blind date, seeing as we have only spoken through emails and blogs and have never met in person. I liked that idea, hence the title. I've never been on a blind date...but this friendship one was absolutely awesome! We had lunch, walked around the Munich market, and she took me to a spot where people can river surf. (Two rivers meet and make a continuous wave, isn't that the coolest thing ever?) I've got pictures just to prove it.

It really was a wonderful trip. Well, except for the bratty kids in my train compartment on my way back. But I got to listen to them speak in German, and whine in German, and I understood it all! That part of it was fun. So...pictures.

Amie-

That sounds like a blast. That's one of the coolest things about blogging and the internet in general, getting to have friends all over the world. If you ever get to Kansas City look me up. Ha ha.

Amie,
Thanks again for coming my way. I had so much fun. It was great to meet you and hope we can do it again one day. I wanted to blog about this too--I planned to write it later. The pictures turned out great.
Talk to you soon.
