Urlaub [May. 13th, 2004|07:37 pm]
Brad Fitzpatrick
[Tags|]

Die Tickets werden gekauft.

August ab 13. bis 29. mache ich Urlaub nach, ringsherum, und von Deutscland mit meinem 15-jahrigen Bruder Cole und meiner Freundin Dina. Die Hauptmotivation war die Hochzeit meinem Großcousin aber eigentlich brauchte ich nicht eine große.

Zurzeit haben wir keine konkrete Plans außer der Hochzeit (am 27. in Bobingen). Natürlich besuchen wir Dresden (wo ich kürzlich wohnte) und Berlin, weil es groß und in der Nähe ist. Wir fliegen nach und von Frankfurt (Direktflug von Portland!).

Wenn du einander treffen willst, antwort hier. Mit zwei Wochen brauchen wir viele gute Ideen und coole Leute, mit der wir besuchen können.

(Wie immer bin ich dankbar wenn du mein Deutsch verbessern können....)

Vacation

The tickets are bought.

From the 13th to the 29th of August, I'll be on vacation in Germany with my 15-year-old brother Cole and my friend Dina. The main motivation was my (great?)cousin's wedding, but I didn't actually need a big one.

We don't have any concrete plans except the wedding (on the 27th in Bobingen). Naturally we will visit Dresden (where I lived recently) and Berlin, because of its size and proximity. We'll fly to and from Frankfurt (direct flights from Portland!).

If you want to meet up, post here. In two weeks we'll need lots of good ideas and cool people we can visit.

(As always I'd be grateful if you can improve my German....)

(thanks, Google!)

Re: Vacation

Does a shitload better than Altavista at least, if you didn't fix it up.

Note to readers: Dina's my girlfriend, not just "friend", which Google translated conservatively, not knowing context.

Re: Vacation

Wow ... it did *a lot* better than google.

Also, I don't know if you know about this site, but www.dict.cc is handy for slang that the other translators may not pick up.

I fixed it up.

I did like the way Google 'translated' Portland to 'Haven Country' though. Has quite a nice ring to it.


Is Großcousin 'second cousin'? Even www.dict.cc couldn't help me with that one.

Re: Vacation

Yeah, it kinda sucks that way. I mean...if somehow Google knew you were male, "meine Freundin" would almost always imply "girlfriend" (as opposed to simply "eine Freundin").

But then, I wouldn't want Google to know my gender, either. :)
