Germany bound in less than 3 weeks...

We almost have all of our plans for Germany finalized.  I'm getting so excited!  I can't believe we put together a trip to Europe in less than 4 weeks.  It's such a short trip (only one week) but we have so much planned.  We arrive in Berlin where we will tour the city and stay for one night, we are kayaking in Potsdam, taking the train to Munich, staying in a guest house in Bavaria, then heading to Frankfurt and Mike's family's house for a couple of days where we hope to do some biking and hiking through the forest and villages nearby.

I plan to hit up a couple of flea markets I found online, any thrift, vintage, or antique stores I come across and of course, the farmer's markets.  I really want to start collecting things from our travels for our house so I hope to find something old and vintage and German to bring back!  I also want to start a tradition of bringing home an ornament from every place we visit to hang on our tree at Christmas.  Hopefully this won't be a challenging task in August!  I am also going to be searching for art for the house.  Mike's mom has these wonderful little pencil and ink drawings of scenes and villages in Germany so I hope to find something like that to bring home.  I will be a girl on a mission!
