A Little Austria in a Korean Restaurant

Hello There My Little Woodpeckers,

Today was a nice day because my cousin from Austria came out to visit with his girlfriend.

My mom took us all out to have Korean food, and it was very delish !

We were sitting there in a Korean restaurant speaking German with bad Korean soap operas in the background. We caught up and amazingly I was able to keep up in German even though it has been awhile since I've spoken any. My cousin also brought us gifts ! I got some Austrian chocolates.

My cousin and his girlfriend are attorneys in Austria and it was interesting to hear the differences between the legal system here and in Austria.

They will be here for a couple of weeks to go to Hollywood and try to get into the Jay Leno show as well as go to Vegas. I hope we can see them before they leave.

I'm glad they are here, and I miss my aunt and other cousins. I hope that I can go over and visit sometime next year.

Take a five or a ten dollar bill every week or each time you get paid, and put it in an evelope. Lock the envelope in a safe or in a place where it is not easily FOR YOU to get at. Keep doing that for a year, and the you will be able to realistically plan on going over the water.

It will be fun and you won't miss the small savings. This will be a supplement to whatever you 'officially save' for the trip.
