Sprechen Sie Deutsch?

We don't.. although we've learned a few phrases since being here..

Through all the cheap hotels, rainy afternoons, broken suitcases & worn-out shoes, we actually do have quite a few stories to share! Here are a few of the highlights of our trip so far. We have three days left together, until Ty has to go back to finish his tour. Three more months for him (hopefully) and then he'll be home.

Here we are just hanging out at Olympic Park in Munich.

Enjoying a 1/2 liter from the Hofbrauhaus!

Enjoying a hike around Garmisch

Enjoying the view from Heidelberg

The remains of a castle outside of St. Goarhausen

Whoops, I thought i turned it.. The Heidelburg castle entrance

Thats all that we have for now!

Hearing Loss and other news...

Just to let you all know...
If you send Ty packages or letters, his address is now at 3rd Platoon instead of 4th.

The Commander recently found out he has some heart problems (I think?). Due to this, he is going home, and the Unit will be getting a new Commander in the near future. They may even have the transition completed as I am typing this. Ty thinks this change will be very positive for the whole troop.

Ty's been having some ear problems, and recently found out his ear drum had been ruptured from the army doc. Hopefully it doesn't result in long-term hearing loss, but I guess we'll have to wait to find out.

I think that's it for now!

Thanks for the continued support. We are anticipating our visit in mid-July.

The Long Awaited News

Well, it's been awhile since this blog has been updated.. Which doesn't make sense since Ty got the Internet in his room.. But, I guess I do get a little upset when he's busy doing something else on the internet and isn't giving his full attention to me when we're chatting (well...what do you expect?)

Anyways, to fill everyone in real quickly --
One member of the unit was killed a week or so ago. That has been shocking for the guys, even those that didn't know the soldier too well. He wasn't in Ty's platoon, so they have been covering more missions while the other platoon took some time off.

This morning, Ty found out his leave dates!! They are now allotting 3 days for travel on either side of the 14 day R&R.. so that makes 20 days possibly!! July 18 we are planning on meeting in Germany to spend a few weeks together. I just have to have enough patience now to last until July 18th!

That's about it right now.. Hopefully he'll be able to post something soon!
