This month we were fortunate enough to have visitors all the way from the US of A. The two CJs boarded their plane in PDX and after 4 connections and a full day of travel, they touched down in Gdansk for 2 weeks of European living with the Kueblers.
I can't even begin to tell you how amazing it felt to hug my sister for the first time in months.
I'm not sure why, but I can't quite put our travel experiences into words. Our schedule looked like this...
- 3 days in Poland (including 1 home game and some sight-seeing in Gdansk and Sopot)
- 3 days in Prague (my girlfriends from last season were able to meet us there for the first night - amazingly fun times; Michael couldn't make the trip - they unfortunately had an away game in Russia)
- 2 days in Berlin (just the CJs)
- 4 days in Poland (more sight-seeing, another home game, our very first Euro soccer game, birthday celebrations)
Expect some good stories and more candid photos in the near future. For now, enjoy a few snap-shots of our travels.
Arrrr! Drinks on a pirate ship.
At one point we thought we had set sail.
Day 2 of sister love. I swear, I could have taken a thousand pictures.
Polish Mexican food is questionable.
I believe this was one of Michael's "nap-ternoons". Lunch at a decent burger joint in Gdansk.
Mind the gap in Prague with my OR and ZGO crew.
We had just watched the video and made donations the previous night.
I believe this is me being proud of my crew - and a bit tipsy perhaps.
Prague-nosis? The Pfaus do well in CZ.
Lunch at a really cool cafe next to the giant clock tower.
Rainy day Oregon shot but I swear it was 65 degrees.
Cool shot. Sub par text.
Prague at dusk from a neighboring hillside.
Took the tram up to the highest peak for the ultimate view.
Lobby shot at Miss Sophie's - highly recommend this place to anyone visiting Prague.
Portland artists representing across the globe, baby!
A fantastic home game win - the second in the CJs two week stay.
Riding dirty in the mini-van we bummed for their visit.
Last day - weather couldn't have been better. Warm enough for a picnic on the beach.
Just your usual "dude piss" in the middle of a crowded beach.
CJ post "polar bear swim". Didn't so much a shiver in the following hour.
Good ol' fashion sister playground fun.
