Benny And The Jets And Me!

Hello "Crazy Little World Of Mine" Readers!

I'm Christianna and I blog over at the music/lifestyle blog The Girl With The Blue Bow!  Which means I blog about life, fashion, and other such things all with a heavy dose of music.  Stop on by and say "hi"!

As you all know Selma has taken off for her hometown in Switzerland, with a touch of Turkey as well!  The place, not the meat product.  What you may not know is that, in about 3 weeks I'll be on a jet plane headed to Switzerland with Benny (my backpack, the only one I'm taking) to visit Selma!  Yes, I did name Benny after the song "Benny And The Jets" by Elton John!  Benny and I will also be bringing one of my friend along as well!  She and I are going to be in Europe for 7 weeks, but we're starting off in Switzerland to visit Selma and my other blogger friend Krystal!

Selma and I have been blogger buds for quite some time, but we really started talking after she told me that I had to listen to the band 100 Monkeys!  (Which is why I'm wearing/featuring my "Wings On Fire" shirt)  The funny thing is that we haven't met in person before, we both live in California and we are both flying to Switzerland to finally make it happen... Life is funny sometimes.

So here are a few random things I've learned about Switzerland and traveling.  (For those of you who plan to follow in my footsteps)

1: Switzerland is surrounded by other countries on all sides.  France, Germany and Italy, which means that they speak Swiss/French, Swiss/German and Swiss/Italian.  Plus, there are different versions of all of those.  I'm learning a few words in Swiss/German, and they use a lot of phlegm when they talk.  Thank God I'm Jewish and it comes naturally.

2: If you can, try to have a person to connect with in the country you're going to.  It's not mandatory, but it sure as hell helps.  Everyone has helped me so much and it's awesome!

3: If you know people who travel, ask them everything about where you're going.  Even the ridiculous questions that make you feel silly.  They just might know the answer.  Travel books are good too, but talking to real people gets the point across better sometimes.

4: There are lot's of different people and sub cultures in Switzerland, all of which I can't wait to explore!

Well, that's all for now.  I'm sure I could go on, but you'd get bored.  If you wanna see what goes down on my travels with Benny on jets, then tune into my blog starting in July.  I don't know if I'll be posting a lot, but I'll be popping up randomly!
