Back to the Grind

Trying to get back in the swing of things here! I'm taking a German class in the mornings now and it's actually challenging! I'm ecstatic because while I understand quite a lot, I can still barely string together a sentence. I feel like a little baby. In English, I'm all "of course this is a blatant attempt to subvert the dominant paradigm" and then in German, I'm like "me wants now pizza, hungry tummy are." It's mortifying.

Teaching two Swedish classes again. So far so good! In the more advanced course, we are reading a novel by Henning Mankell, which is pretty great because it's something I would do in my freetime anyway.

So where should I go for Easter Break? I'm thinking Sweden? But a beach somewhere on the Mediterranean is pretty appealing too... I'm open to any and all suggestions, just trying to keep it affordable. Something off the beaten path is cool too! Ideas so far:

Croatia -- Rovinj or Rijeka
Italy -- not sure where? Maybe Florence and Venice since a friend will be there at that time?
