I Love Technology

It is early morning and I am sitting in a little town in Southern Germany called Schoeffelding. The house we are staying in (family friends) has a wireless internet connection which is allowing me to write this post. I'm not sure when I'll have the luxury of technology again, so I thought I'd better connect while I had a connection!

We have been having a wonderful time so far on our travels. The kids and I are enjoying new sights, tastes and sounds. And through the wonders of the internet we've been able to share our journey in nearly real time. Facebook, Skype and email have allowed us to stay connected to our other half (and friends) which has made being so far away much easier.

Over the past few days we have been able to share our stories about the Glockenspiel, the giant pretzels we've been eating, the stuffed animals we purchased, our search for crests for our walking sticks, and the nightmarish Crime and Punishment museum (a huge hit with the kids) with my husband and little boys. And not only were we able to tell these stories we were able to express them visually through the magic of Skype. My kids could show the purchases they made for their brothers (stuffed animals of a pig and monkey) and we were able to watch one of the boys make faces while we told our stories. I think he enjoyed watching himself on video!

I realize that many people take a vacation wanting a break from their cell phone, email, etc. but it sure comes in handy when you need a little family fix--when you want to hear about what is going on back at home and when you just want to say "I love you and miss you and will see you soon!"
