You'll never believe where GPS took me...

It's not hard to give in to GPS when she knows the way around a foreign country and you can't read the signs.

So I have had my good friend and bff from high school and college, and after college, visiting. She is attending school for the summer over here in Europe. She came to visit me before she went off for a month to get smart. I told her I would take her to her final destination which ended up being only a 2 hour drive for me. I've posted about this place before but we missed a bunch of it on our first visit.

Anyway, on the way home my dear GPS took me a different way home. I'm smart enough to know how to read a map so when I saw a sign for Weiden idf, and GPS wanted me to go a different way, I questioned it. However, I wasn't rushed for time and instead went the way she wanted. Ladies always get what they want right? I'm glad I did because I drove by a logging farm. I don't know what those are called. But there were giant stacks (piles) of logs. These piles were as tall as a barn and when I drove by them in my non air-conditioned car with the windows down, you can imagine that smell. I almost turned around just to smell it again. It was a live version of a bath and body works candle. I saw about four more new-to-me villages I've never known existed all within 10 minutes of me.  Now, I don't remember their names, and there was nothing super significant about them but it was such a good reminder to me of how I often take for granted the fact that I live in this beautiful place. I am so lucky!  I also saw so much beauty this day. The best part? I didn't take any pictures. So you'll just have to trust me. That, and there's no pressure for me to post the pics because there just isn't any. Well okay, I took like 2-3 but they are terrible.

That first place I mentioned? The one my friend is living in for the next month? Prague. Prague guys. That's a 2 hour drive from me. I keep comparing it to the drive I used to make pretty dang often from Paulden to Phoenix. Weiden to Prague. Crazy. She is staying in a part of Prague I've never seen or been to and I was so overwhelmed with the awesomeness! I couldn't stare as much as I wanted to because I was driving the crazy streets while she navigated.

Anyway, it's these experiences and so many more that have kept me busy this past week or so. There's so much I need to tell you about, and I will! I've set a goal of doing a post a day until I catch up on my travels. Although listen, I'm not a travel blogger so don't expect that! I am an experience blogger though and I can't wait to tell you about all of those soon! What have you been up to this summer? I almost forget it's summer because it's been crazy cold and crazy rainy and then crazy hot! What?

Here's those 2 pictures I mentioned.

Super unsafe to try and take a pictures with GPS talking to me AND one way roads. Please don't judge me.
