Heading to Berlin

We’re about to head off to Berlin for a couple days.  Jenny’s never been there, so it should be fun.  We don’t have any specific plans, but we’ll probably explore the city with the Fat Tire Bike Tours.

We almost had to change our plans, though.  Jenny was in Aachen the last couple days, and she was planning on returning last night on an evening train (it’s about a 5-hour train trip).  However, things at work didn’t go quickly, so she took the train that left an hour later.  That would have been fine, except that train got into Dortmund late, and she missed her connection.

She ended up catching another train out of Dortmund at midnight.  Fortunately, the conductor took pity on her and gave her a sleeping compartment of her own, so she was able to sleep, at least until she had to change trains again at 5 am.

Despite the adventures, she’s here now, and we’re getting ready to go.  Otherwise, it was a pretty boring week.
