Yes, and actually, I did so. In fact, the entire family swam with sharks. It was in August 2014 during our vacation to Florida, and we survived, mostly because it was a reasonably controlled environment, and they were bonnethead and leopard sharks which aren’t known to randomly attack humans.
My girl is home from Berlin now! I’m proud to say we all survived her first trip away without her parents. I missed her, but I know it’s just the beginning of what I hope is a long life of travel and exploration away from us. I’m excited for her.
My sweet girl left this morning for her class graduation trip to Berlin. Apparently, I’m the only parent who asked for a trip itinerary. Martin, who is the president of the school’s parent-teacher group, laughed at me.
We visited the Stasi Museum in what was the headquarters campus of the MfS (the Ministry for State Security) to spy, terrorize, manipulate and control its own people in East Germany. I paid a little extra to get the photography button.
This is a display depicting the enemy: Western culture, Iron Maiden, and agents of NATO. I would not have been well liked in Eastern Germany.
6:05 a.m. –I am definitely not a morning person, but we are up very early for a flight, running away to Berlin for the weekend to celebrate our anniversary and my birthday (later this month), so yeah, I‘m on board with my favorite travel partner.
