Yep, same. ahdn_paul_01 Sometimes I walk through crowds like Jason Bourne drives through Paris when being chased by the CIA. It's pretty thrilling. a-hard-days-night-john-6

My stomach feels like it wants me to throw up all day but it hasn't actually made me throw up. If it would stop the bloody churning feeling, I'd happily spend 5 minutes with Madame Porcelain although my housemates are all pricks (someone should @me for my German housemate stories) so I can't imagine anyone would rub my back and hold my hair but we can't win at everything can we.

 

Also, my right shoulder on Thursday, Friday and Saturday was relatively sore. I took some anti-inflammatories and was feeling alright then I woke up this morning and my left shoulder is killing me, why Lord, why?!?

 

Finally, I was travelling from 5am yesterday morning to get to Germany. My itinerary went like this:

04:15- Wake up

04:50- Drive to bus station

05:10- Bus departs

08:00- Bus arrives in Dublin airport

08:15- Am through security, sit in cosy pods in terminal 2 waiting for gate number to come up (also Dublin airport is the best airport in the world for getting through it quickly and I'll fight anyone who disagrees, I think the longest I've spent going through it was 20 minutes, and I go through the place a good few times per year). Flight says delayed by 45 minutes and will depart at 10:30am instead of 9:45am.

09:45- Leave my cosy pod to go to gate, I am flying Ryanair, I know what to expect.

10:15- Plane has not started boarding yet- what do you expect from Ryanair?

10:30 Plane starts to board- woohoo, as I am near front of queue I am in the first bunch to get boarding passes scanned.

10:35 Walked down stairs and met the people who were in front of me in the queue- thought we were waiting for bus to plane

11:00 *cricket noises* still on stairs, no idea what's going on

11:15 *sit down on stairs, listens to Simpsons podcast* I looked out the window and see our plane is there just a load of men staring at it

11:30 *still sitting*

11:40 Queue starts moving, we are finally boarding. Apparently they had to wait for a cleaning crew to go on board, and they couldn't find one??

12:00 Plane takes off

15:00 I arrived in Hamburg, have to take the S-Bahn from the airport to the central station, a regional train from the central station to another town, and another regional train from that town to my town.

20:00 ASJ arrives, bleary-eyed, gets bus to house. Woman behind me on bus kept pushing me and knocked my bag off my shoulder, just refrained myself from telling her where to go. 

20:30 At house, have no food in fridge or cupboard. All German shops closed on Sunday, need to buy food now. Local supermarket closes at 21:00, RUN ASJ, RUN

20:45 I arrive at supermarket, buy things.

21:05 Back home, forgot to buy milk ffffffffffffffffffffffff.

 

That sums up the last 48 hours or so nicely, fun times.

I just spent the last 13 minutes (I counted) scraping algae of the ceiling. This misfortune occurred when I was cleaning one of my fish tanks, and a huge glob of algae shot out the end of my gravel vacuum and stuck to the ceiling, dripping water all over the floor. I had to climb up on the cat-rescuing stepladder to wipe it off, and needless to say, it wasn't much fun. And there's still residue left on the ceiling.

Restroom stall doors that open into the stall. Especially tiny stalls. Not enough room to move around when closing and then opening the door. Yeah, I know, ones that open outwards could end up banging another person on the nose.

I dislike bathroom stalls/public bathrooms in general. One of the downsides of being as tall as I am is that most of the time, I'm taller than the stall door paul-mccartney-facepalm_gif

Amsterdam and its hotel prices. I'm by myself and I don't have anyone who wants to go with me ergo I'm not staying in a hostel. I'm also not too keen on being woken up by drunk and/or high roommates at 4am when I want to get up early in the morning to go to museums.

 

Because of this I can now only afford to spend 24 hours there, enough for me to squeeze in a museum and the Anne Frank house which is all I really wanted to do anyways. What I paid for one night in Amsterdam, I paid 3 nights for in Paris- oof.

 

Looking at Krakow, place is so cheap I think I just died and went to heaven after looking at Amsterdam prices.

That's sounds ridiculously expensive especially since I doubt Paris is all that cheap either.

Ta Fiddy, the reek of piss in the Paris air really makes it a wonderfully romantic experience a-hard-days-night-george-10.

 

I'm tempted because I'm a baby face to see if I can get into museums for free 'cause I'm clearly under 18 and what do you mean where's my ID, it's back at the hotel with my parents 🙂 .

 

Seriously though no student discounts for museums and they cost €20 each, jeesssus. London I love you and your free museums <3 x

50yearslate said I was referring to the overwhelming stench of cigarette smoke but sure. a-hard-days-night-george-10

That's mainland Europe in general though. I don't think the message of 'smoking is bad' has got through to them yet. You can still smoke in bars and restaurants in Austria for God 's sake! 

One of my favourite things to do in supermarkets is watch all of the Germans buying their fruit and veg and it's all organic and fair trade and then they go and buy a carton of smokes along with it. 

It's incredibly annoying when I'm outside reading a book and some German students sit next to me all puffing away, some of us would rather not die of lung cancer, thanks x.

Krakow is a really beautiful city, you'll love it if you've not been before. I'm still very jealous of Amsterdam though, it's on my bucket list for sure.
