Our European Odyssey

This blog covered our month-long trip to Eastern Europe -- specifically the countries of Hungary, Poland, Czech Republic, Austria and Slovakia.

Hello there,

This is our attempt to have a blog about our travels in Europe. We thought posting our stories and photos would be the best way to keep our family members and friends updated on our experiences.

Right now, we're in the thrilling process of packing up our apartment. Every wall is lined with boxes, the oven has been cleaned (yuck!), the walls are bare and we're getting down to the last of our food. This week will be filled with more packing and cleaning while Jake prepares for his last(!) finals and graduation. We're so glad he's almost done -- Jake because he's been sick of school for a long time and Andrea because it's not fun being the sole breadwinner in the house on a journalist's salary.

By the way, Andrea has accepted a position as a copy editor/proofreader at A.G. Edwards' corporate headquarters in St. Louis. She (along with one other editor) will be editing/proofreading all documents the company publishes, from internal communications to e-mails from the CEO to newsletters and brochures to advertisements to the ever-exciting annual report.

We hope you'll check back regularly as we prepare to leave and then as we make our way around Hungary, Poland, the Czech Republic, Austria and Slovakia. Our flight to Budapest leaves May 16. We can't wait. :)

Hey Miss Andrea!
I have a new roommate from Czech who might be able to give you some insights if you'd like. My other "roomies" are from Estonia & Siberia.
Love your hair!
Can't believe you'd accept a position in Illinois when the position of Kokomo Editor is still available in sunny Florida(it offers a lot of fun but almost no money)
