An Amazing Conversation

“Oh you have a dog? That’s so cool!”

“Yeah.”

“What is it called?”

“Lady.”

“Like after the gender?”

“No”

“As in “…And the Tramp”?”

“No.”

“Like…of the lake?”

“No.”

“Is she particularly nice?”

“No she’s kind of mean.”

 

 

 

“Alright, this conversation is over.”

We are all just mermaids…

…Trying to convince everyone we are humans. 

 

Sometimes when I am underwater in the ocean, or in a pool, or in a fountain I snuck into or a bowl of water I just stuck my head in, I pretend I live there and that it must be really difficult to live in the “air” world. What if we hadn’t evolved to live on earth but had stayed fish and evolved into fish-humans. Fumans.

Do you think Beyonce and frozen yogurt would still have as much to say as they do now?

 

Underwater cameras are the best. These are taken in Croatia near Vodice and in the Krka National Park with 7 of my friends. Our roadtrip from Nuremburg to Croatia was an incredible success. 

Parking in Krka

It was one of those vacations you never wanted to end. Each day brought its new hysterical twist and turn. But how could we go wrong with 8 hotties in Croatia? Maybe part of our 12 hour drive there included returning to our juvenile roots and playing truth or dare. Maybe our first dare included going to the gas station bathroom and wearing all of our underwear outside of our clothes and parading around. But I won’t confirm anything.

It was a roadtrip at its finest, I suppose. It is safe to say I have very beautiful, hilarious friends that I am incredibly grateful for.

These pictures are from the day we spent at Krka National park, basically walking around “oohing” and “aahing” everything from waterfalls to little leaves. We were amazed by anything. It felt like I was Pocahontas and I actually think people enjoyed my rendition of “Just around the Riverbend”, at least I didn’t get kicked out, so you know what’s good.There were people that kept illegally jumping off the waterfalls(which is actually life threatening because the depth of the pool changes every meter or so) so we all just had a couple heart attacks but that’s fine. I don’t even like calmness of the body and mind.

It wasn’t me in Prague

Oh what an adventure it was…

The roomies and I decided to strap ourselves in and spontaneously head over to Praha, Czech Republic for a night. Well, it was a one night plan but the second night just ended up happening out of nowhere and we are still not fully taking responsibility for it. It just happened. I guess you could call it “non-stop”.

Oh, it was insane.

That time of the year rolled around again: Erlanger Bergkirchweih.

This beer guzzling phenomenon can also be referred to as the event many a teenager(and sadly or maybe not so sadly many non-teenagers) save up for all year. This magical fest is everything it is hyped up to be. Starting with the long walk through sun kissed fields carrying one or 3 crates of beer, running into too many people you know and sharing a Klopferle with them, eventually you somehow make it to the music and German “Tracht” infused party. I can’t even explain it. It is amazing. And somehow I always manage to spend exuberant amounts of money there along with every other person attending. It is amazing. That is worth repeating a hundred times.

You will lose everyone there. You won’t have service. Your phone will die. You will fall off the table you’re dancing on at least 4 times. The music will be too loud. Then the music won’t be loud enough. They will play “Summer of ’69” too often, yet never often enough. You’ll fall in love set to “Sweet Caroline”, then forget who you fell in love with and move on to the next table full of random people who are bound to be your best friends within a song and a “Cheers”. And you will drink a lot of beer.

A Day at Sea

The weather has been unbelievably NOT German, and by that I mean the sun has been shining and I have not been forced to wear the IKEA blanket version of a mammoth’s hide. So, we decided to drive to a lake nearby and lather ourselves in sunscreen. Alright mainly me. Ok it was Zinc Oxide, but otherwise I would look like *this* today. Yeah, there’s nothing there because I would be in a hospital somewhere, under a heavy dosage of Vicodin and unable to man any photographing device.

All in all the lake was very pretty and it was amazing to lay around in daisy sprinkled grass.
