After arriving Hamburg yesterday I’ve taken things really slow. Spending the day at a cafe trying to get some work done, and later I’ll meet up with some friends.
As I said in the last post, I made a decision on taking the post. Mostly because it was the cheapest solution, but also because I was thinking about the environmental changes that we see every day.
I also made an agreement with myself that I will also in the future opt for trains or buses instead of planes, of course there will be times where I don’t have the time it takes, or the bus/train doesn’t go to the destination where I want to go. But if it works, I will do it. Small sacrifice for a bigger change that is totally worth it.
So, I took the bus from Oslo (Norway) to Hamburg (Germany) which normally takes 14 hours, but as everything I do, I met some complications. The ones who follow me on Instagram already knows this, but I’m telling the story again here on Le Blog.
As we were driving, I noticed that the driver talked a lot on the phone which annoyed me a little bit, but I didn’t care to tell the driver. I don’t know the rules they have, but in Norway that would not be ok. When we arrive in Lübeck which is only 1 hour away from Hamburg, the driver (who was still talking on the phone) crashed into another building and shattered the glass window. Luckily no one got hurt, but it was a really uncomfortable experience. On top of all this we got delayed by two more hours, and that was really upsetting since I was hungry, and the snacks and drinks that they said on the website that they were selling, they didn’t sell.
But all that aside, I made it to Germany! My mission for the next few days is to find the best hamburger in Hamburg – mostly as a joke, but hey, wouldn’t it be funny tho?
Today is a good example on what a rainy autumn day is. It’s pouring down, but I just had to get out of the house. Therefore, I’m spending the day in a café, drinking coffee and look at all the people outside. I, as many others, love autumn – It’s my favourite season of the year. I love feeling the raindrops on my cheeks while I’m running for shelter. I love the colours on the trees as they turn to red and yellow. I love feeling the wind in my hair.
Autumn is that time of the year where I spend most time (and money) having coffee at nice cafes. There is something special about looking out of the window and watch all the people outside who are living their lives. It makes you think of what you’re doing with yours. But my favourite thing about fall is that you can wear big coats, jackets and sweaters without getting too hot or too cold. I really think I’m an autumn person, I complain when it’s too warm and complain even more if it’s too cold.
I didn’t really have anything on my agenda today, but still I felt like I had to get out of the house. For the last couple of days, I’ve locked myself inside and watched way too much TV. I thought about getting myself some new shoes. After all, we are heading into a new season.
But first I’m going to drink my coffee and read for my exams.
This is the playlist I’m currently listening to. During summer I never listen to music unless it’s the radio, but during fall I wouldn’t know what to do without music. This playlist is full of weird music, but it’s my playlist – enjoy if you want too.
