EUROPE...HERE I COME!

So I'm flying to Europe on Wednesday for two weeks.  It's my first ever "real" vacation.  Heading to Paris for a friends wedding and then ditching everybody and backpacking by myself to the other spots.  

I'm actually being quite adventurous and trying out Couchsurfing.org, staying with friendly locals with a warm couch and a knack for finding the cool dive bars.  Throwing in an actual friends' loft, and a hostel, I am thinking to come out of this adventure with quite a few stories just from the new friends and people I will meet this way.

Crossfit??  YES!  I will be stopping at Crossfit Brussels and Crossfit Amsterdam, and am SO excited!!  Much to my dismay, the Parisiens have not yet adopted our intensely hardcore metabolic/olympic lifting method of training.  Any suggestions on other workouts I should try?

If you want to follow my hijinks in europe, I will be tweeting from everywhere, and probably with pictures: www.twitter.com/adrianag
