I’ve lived in Europe for three years now. In 2006, I was still settling in during October. In 2007, I was in the first trimester of my pregnancy. In 2008, Massimo was too young. But THIS YEAR, I’m going to the Frankfurt Book Fair! Of course my desire to go long precedes 2006, but it definitely became a more realistic endeavor since moving here. I’ve already purchased my plane ticket, and we’ll be staying with friends nearby so I can take the quick train in to the fair while Stefano and Massimo hang with our friends and their twin boys. I haven’t sorted out my fair tickets yet, but there’s still time. And I am oh so thrilled about going!! If you’re going, do let me know so we can meet up. Someone on twitter already mentioned to me that the water for sale at the fair is really expensive so I should bring my own. Helpful tip, that. If you’ve been before and have advice for a newbie, please share!
P.S. Beer recommendations are also welcome.
