A step closer…

22 May

I purchased my tickets to Israel last week. Actually, I’m using miles that I collected from work travel. I leave at 6 a.m. Wednesday, October 17th and arrive 1 p.m. on Thursday. I’m taking a bit of a round about route to get there (Reno – San Francisco – Washington Dulles – Munich – Tel Aviv) but I am at the mercy of what’s available using my miles. The advantage of this crazy routing – I’ll be flying business class and I arrive at a decent time. If I flew a more direct routing then I would arrive at 2 a.m. Given that I must take a train from Tel Aviv to Haifa after arriving – I don’t want to do that in the middle of the night after flying all day. I have to admit – I am looking forward to a quick beer and pretzel during my layover in Munich.

Just this morning I received my first syllabi and reading list for my German language classes. Over the next several weeks I’ll be getting more reading lists for each course. If you are curious what kinds of classes I’ll be taking, you can find the course listings here.
