Pittsburgh, PA--We just finished emailing the first 12 WWOOF farms about the first three weeks of our trip. We hope to hear back from any of them so that we can start making some plans. We contacted farms that are pretty close (within an hour) of southern cities such as Toulouse in the west and Nice in the east. They sound pretty amazing and many have websites with pictures. It will be really exciting to finally get that nailed down!
Ben is working arduously to find an apartment in Paris, but we haven't found the right place yet. We might have to wait a month or so before listings for May are really available. The budget is pretty much in place, and we've booked up our time in Israel. Thanks to the Lowengrubs (Samson family friends) and Deb Bloch (one of my college roommates), we will be comfortable and have a kitchen for the week of Passover! Can't wait to see you guys! We also booked a hostel in Jerusalem and one in Tel Aviv for the remainder of our stay in Israel.
I found boots, but still no overalls yet, haha. Thanks for reading!
