Irene felt so fortunate. It was a beautiful vacation day, Sunday. the weather was actually breezy, but not too cold. The sun was warming to everyone outdoors, and such a day made the teenager smile brightly. why is she so happy? Her family is taking a vacation trip to Sweden. Irene knew how scary it can be, going from a country you have lived in all your life to a new one, in which you have no idea on. but with research and common language phrases, one tourist could do just fine. Irene didn't believe that was enough. she had to write down a plan on how the days would work out. She knew that the plans could change, and she had extra paper for just such an event. Her mother, Anna, wanted the girl to put away the 'tactics' and just enjoy the ride. Her father, Bruce, was fast asleep. however, Irene flatly refused. she just HAD to make sure everything was in order and correct. she even was prepared for the times of the plane, and how long it would be until they could board. To be very blunt, the girl liked to be accurate. As she sat on the plane, she studied a map of Stockholm. The fellow that was sitting next to her wore a questionable expression. she understood. Why would anyone need a map? you've got a phone, after all. But, what happens if you lose the phone? now who's prepared? Irene raised her eyebrow and gave a cocky smirk. ----------- she and her family finally made it out of the airport. "what shall we do first?" Anna asked, visibly excited to be in a new country. Irene rolled her eyes. "We have forty minutes until we must check into the hotel. We can settle down in a cafe and discuss plans." The parents knew there was no arguing with her, and went in search of a cafe.
