Cue up the polka tunes, find me a pair of lederhosen, and buy me a bratwurst with sauerkraut – ‘cause the shoeboxed team is headed to Germany! We’re packing our bags and heading to a nation where everyone hates inefficiency, loves the Fatherland, and has never been late for anything in their lives! I may not have been to Berlin, Germany, or Europe in my life, but that’s what stereotypes are for! We really do have our reasons for going to Berlin. And it has nothing to do with the fact that all the women are blond, blue-eyed, and terrifyingly hairy.

During the last week of May, we’ll begin our journey. I say “during the last week” because the trip could include close to seven days of travel. My current itinerary takes me from St. Louis to Atlanta, GA—just a hop, skip, and a jump from a balmy Raleigh-Durham, NC. From there we will experience the bustling Mecca of Toronto, on our way to London, England. Our final layover will occur in Milan, made famous by the eponymous Disney classic (read: Milan = Mulan), before our eventual and long-awaited arrival in Berlin.

Which reminds me, why is the airline industry going bankrupt? Because this is the cheapest way to get there.
