Well, the trip is now underway – all of the bags are packed.
Interestingly, I’m heading over with an entirely full bag… A few requests for European friends, and about 30 pounds of ziploc bags, empty boxes, packaging tape, empty body-bag size duffel bags, and foam popcorn peanuts.
Still in wonderful Illinois – having a good first weekend in Peoria. At the request of fellow OG writer, Chris Wray, our farewell breakfast is a hearty Steak and Shake affair. Next up for me, stroopwafel and chocolate croissant in Schipol.
Anyways, before we leave, some stuff to look forward to.
- We should have mostly daily posts from the fair. About a dozen of us will be there, and a few have plans already for regular posting. I’ll be here with some pics and breaking news. Chris Wray plans daily recaps like usual. Melissa is compare this trip with her last one from 2005* (OK, maybe an exaggeration – but it’s been awhile!)
- We’re trying something new – We have just started a Twitter account and we are hoping to post pictures on the fly there – assuming the German internet gods allow. Follow us at @opinionatedgmrs
- By popular demand, food photos will continue. If there is enough groundswell, we may spin off the OpinionatedEaters.
Yeah. I know. Gotta up my selfie stick game
Until your next appointment (in Europe!)
