Hello again! Well, finally a moment to relax and write a little more...although I'm thinking that I need to keep my posts a little shorter and care less about grammar :P That way it won't feel like a chore! Paris - June 16th - June 22nd So, after Berlin I left for Paris to stay with the family of a friend of my Dad: Mark, Martha, and Marcus. The three of them were amazing hosts and extremely generous with both their time and space; from the moment I arrived, I felt at home. After slogging through the Paris bus and metro system for 2 hours and arriving in Clichy (a suburb just outside of Paris), I was greeted warmly and treated to the first of many delicious home-cooked meals prepared by Martha. Seeing as how it ... read more

Hey Everyone! Just wanted to post a quick update since I haven't posted a new blog lately. I know I'm way behind as I've already been through Paris, Lille, Brussels, and Amsterdam without a blog. I'm currently in Barcelona and figure that I'll have more time to write once I get to Lisbon next week. Hope all is well with everyone and stay tuned :) Cheers, Jesse... read more

So, I believe that I left off last time by talking about the wonderful walking sticks that are unique to Berlin and my new German buddies. My best friend in Berlin is a guy by the name of Andre that I met at the first couchsurfing event that I attended on Friday night. After hanging out with several other people until around midnight, we decided to split from the group and go check out another bar. I suggested my favorite spot a few blocks from my place where I was quickly becoming a regular. I knew that Bettina would be working from our conversation the night before and figured we might as well go to a place where the bartender knew my name! Oh, I forget to mention it earlier, but there is one negative aspect ... read more

Europe » Germany » Berlin » Berlin June 23rd 2009

Hello All! So, I have finally gotten around to creating a blog to let everybody know what I have been up to so far. I'm currently staying with friends in Lille, France and am lucky enough to have my own room in a beautiful 3 story house to collect my thoughts and recount my travels to this point. Philadelphia, PA/Mt. Laurel, NJ - June 3rd - June 7th I started my trip by visiting with my buddy Jeremy who owns one of the promotional staffing agencies that I have done a lot of work for over the past several years. We became pretty good friends during this time and I thought it would be fun to visit with him on the way to New York. We spent most of our time in Philadelphia and Mount Laurel, ... read more
