My husband and me are damn good at providing new content for the Outtakes section. For obvious reasons I am not willing to write about every Outtake we manage to make happen, but the next ones are to cute and stupid to not write about.
The last few weeks we were busy booking flights and hotels and managing our route for our upcoming trip to California. Last week I asked Flo to fill out the ESTA forms for our trip. I was in the other room when he suddenly yelled “Wow, they alreday charge you 50 bugs per person for it”. I was kind of shocked by this and told him not to fill out the form before asking someone about it. He promptly typed a message into the American Dream Greencard winner forum to ask the other winners about it. Like five minutes later he got his answer via Google: The ESTA forms who already charge you money are fake! We were kind of relieved. But when we read the answer another winner posted for us, we felt embarrassed. Because as every winner but us knows: You don’t have to fill out the ESTA form anymore when you have a Greencard visa.
The other Outtake happened only a few days later. After one day in San Francisco, the second stop of our trip will be San Luis Obispo and the Madonna Inn hotel. Since I saw the hotel on TV a few years ago, I made it my big goal to pay it a visit one day. Flo booked the hotel without telling me as a belated birthday present. But when he told me about the dates he booked later that evening, I wasn’t only surprised in a positive way. We had already booked a hotel in Huntington Beach a few weeks ago and Flo kind of double-booked rooms for us. One in San Luis Obispo and one in Huntington Beach. The staff at the Madonna Inn was very helpful, so after 5 E-Mails Flo finally managed to book us a room for the right dates! I guess those guys will recognize the strange Germans first hand when we arrive!
I named this article “Outtakes â Holiday Edition Part 1″, because I am pretty sure that in the two weeks in America a lot of Outtakes will cross our way. So, stay tuned! And enjoy your laugh…
