Trains

What a difference a night makes

It’s pretty amazing to be able to take a Monday morning train home from the summerhouse rather than the Sunday evening train. It’s so much nicer spending Sunday night with mother dearest, lighting up the BBQ and participate in a bingo game show, than sitting on a train returning to an empty apartment .

Being able to look at the hours I worked and see that I have enough, thus not needing to head into work for a few hours before class, is one of the great luxuries that studying full-time, working half-time brings with it.
Thus I’m now sitting on a train (again), keeping my fingers crossed that the trainjinx will stay away as I have a very small window between arrival and start of class.

The reason I dared was the one hour and five minute late arrival I had to the summerhouse on Friday. I assume that the traingods will let me of with that one, and this far all has been well, there is however, an hour and a half left to go. Wish me luck!

Absolutely Nothing

What a week!!

Arriving home from Greece was no fun, leaving 35 degrees and sun for 15 degrees, rain and cold. Then on Monday my summer course started, Tuesday was back to work, Wednesday was work and school and then on Thursday it was exam time as I had to re-sit one of the exams from spring.

Last night it was celebration time;

Ok, so I didn’t drink all of them myself however I was still tired at work today. At least it was an early day in order for me to make it to my train, destination summerhouse! I’ve brought my computer hoping that I can finish the rest of the blog posts about the wonderful vacation in Greece, in addition to that I’m carrying loads of textbooks both for my summer course and the micro economic class that start in September. Let’s see how much I actually get done.

How’s your week been ma peeps?

Greece 2014

Lindos – the village

One of my favorite parts of vacation, if it’s done correctly, is the breakfast and I have to say that our hotel has done an excellent job on their buffet.

After brekkie we headed to the pool and spent most of the day there, with food and drink breaks of course.

I also managed to complete book two for this vacation.

In the evening we headed to the village that we thought our hotel was at the bottom of, Lindos, this wasn’t the case as Lindos bay appears to be the bay before you reach the actual village.
Thus the assumption that we would be spending our time hanging out in Lindos was incorrect as instead we have to take a taxi to get there.
It’s not the worst thing that could happen as the place is totally overrun by and adapted for tourists, quite sad as it’s a real beauty.

After walking around for a bit we enjoyed a lovely dinner on one of the many roof restaurants, before heading back to the hotel in time to catch the end of the evening live entertainment.

Greece 2014

Arrival

After a very comfortable plane ride, that included both extra legroom (pure luck) and food (bought and paid for), with s slight delay we arrived in Greece.

It took about an hour on the bus, that we were herded to like cattle – it is charter after all – before we made it to the hotel. A hotel that actually looked like it did on the pictures we saw when booking the trip, a pleasant surprise indeed. We quickly ditched our stuff at the room and went for lunch.

The rest of the afternoon was spent by the pool and I could take one of those fashionable feet on vacation pictures.

The evening, after an included buffet dinner, was spent infront of the exciting welcome show arranged by the hotels entertainment staff (at this point I’m getting Dirty Dancing vibes and are now in the midst of finding my very own Patrick Swayze) in the company of colourful drinks.

Long before going to bed I did finish the first book of the trip.

Greece 2014

Why do vacations have to start so early in the morning?

It’s travel time again, this time it’s me and mother dearest that are flying to Greece, Rhodes to be more exactly. The morning started at 4:30 am with a quick jumping out of bed heading to the train session.
Surprisingly enough,  there was no issue with the train or check-in and as we reached security we got invited to the FastTrack, not sure if it was my beauty or mother dearests age that made the nice staff to take pithy on us.
After all that time, I finally got the first cup of coffee!

After a little bit of shopping we are now sitting at the gate waiting for the boarding to begin, boooring but required.

Hope you all have a fab Sunday ma peeps, think mine will be excellent.
