No School for the Next 2.5 Weeks...

What the heck am I going to do with myself until the 24 of October?
Even worse, what the heck will I have to talk about? We live in a tiny town of about 6,000 people, and have corn fields in our backyard. There's 2 banks, 2 restaurants, 2 supermarkets, a cocktail lounge, a pub, an Eiscafe, a post office/kiosk, and a couple of churches. We don't have bikes, so the most exciting thing to do around here is go for a short walk in the woods behind our house.
Don't get me wrong - I LOVE having this opportunity and being here, I just wish it wasn't so darn expensive to get out of this town. I mean, it costs 14 EUR roundtrip (that's WITH a Bahncard) for ONE of us to get to Frankfurt, then for a train ticket to get around Frankfurt for the day, it's about 8 EUR. Friedberg is a little cheaper, but not much. Basically, until we go to Croatia on the 15th, there's going to be a whole lot of sitting around here on Horloffstra├če.
Oh, yeah... we're going to Croatia! We will be in Pula from October 15 to the 22, and we are SO excited! Wondering what the heck Pula has to offer? You're in luck! I've googled images and posted them below for your viewing pleasure.

This is an arch... (yeah, yeah, I know... You can call me Captain Obvious)

This is the Arena Istria in Pula

This is the Temple of Rome and Augustus in Pula

So there you have it! Those three things plus lots of really cool churches, old buildings, and beaches. Heck yes. I will get to put on a swimsuit for the first time in FOREVER. I cannot wait. 

Added bonus: Most people in Croatia can speak German (actually, more people speak German than English), so I will be able to keep up with the whole speaking German thing. 

Can't wait! I'm sure, too, that this blog will be the victim of my boredom over the next week or so, so I apologize in advance.
