Whoa Nellie, it's not even 8:00 AM and this day is crazytown. It started in the shower at approximately 5:14 AM, when I was minding my own business, sudsing up with my coconut shampoo. I heard a creak outside and then another and then all of a sudden, whooosh!, shower curtain flung wide open and there's Tiho with sleepy eyes, a sheepish smile and a big "hello!" I screamed so loud, I'm sure the neighbors heard it. His intention wasn't to scare me, which made the situation all the more hilarious. Simply an early morning pee three hours ahead of schedule and excitement to find me still in the house. Oy.
It got crazier with my walk to the train in the heart of the most torrential thunderstorm I've experienced in years. Lightening illuminating the whole sky, rain so heavy and fast it shot sideways and thunderclaps so boom boom booming, I was sure I was about to die. Two cars passing, with windows rolled down and offers for a lift to the station. Strange men, thank you very much, but no thanks, I'd rather take my chances with the electricity and the tip of my umbrella.
I finished reading a really good but really bizarre book on my commute and am feeling like there's a full moon tonight even though I know there isn't. I just opened my notebook to jot down a few things and realized the most crazytown thing of all: in twelve days we leave for our two-and-a-half-week-long trip to Europe and I haven't done a single thing besides book our Paris apartment.
So, with wishes for a happy weekend, I beg of you to leave some insight on things to do in Paris, France and Prague, Czech Republic. Tiho has Bulgaria covered.
Please and thank you, and apologies in advance for what is, perhaps, my most random post ever.
