Summer Edition ‘012 Day 43, 9th of September: The Return

ontheroad

Well, what is left to be said? I returned two hours ago, writing into the diary since I didn’t wright a word since I got to Paris. The day started nice: I had breakfast with Hanna & Ante, we watched some photos of our vacation & got to the train station. We said goodbye but not for long for we will see us the next morning at work!

The Last 10 songs of my journey:

1. Muse- Please, Please, Please
2.  Tomte- Schreit den Namen meiner Mutter
3. Chopin- No. 7 (Preludes)
4. Cyndi Lauper- I Drove All Night
5. Grizzly Bear- Slow Life
6. Motion City Soundtrack- Track 7
7. Die Ärzte- Paul
8. Dredg- Ode To The Sun
9. David Dondorero- Outbound Sound
10. Fleetwood Mac- No Questions Asked (Great Ending!!!)

When I got back to Freiburg I was afraid there were no trams to my place, luckily there were, but only leaving for my direction, because there are some constructions still!

Still I have to wash my clothes but wanted to finish this here- I know myself- it would lie here unfinished until whatever (just like the New York Diary and the blog, haha!)

This time was so magical!

I got to see so many places.

I got to learn so many faces

Belonging to great people

Whom I am happy to have met!

It was mostly positive & beautiful

I had great weather for british, irish and swedish circumstances.

We will see, what will come next ‘cuz you’ll never know and “Grab Your Luck While You Can, It MIght Be Gone By Tomorrow!”

XOXO my friends, I am home!

ontheroad

Well- not really long expected, but since Paris it seemed to me very long! Just another hours of Paris prrofing how nice (not!) it is- thank you- I will hopefully not return.

At least one place on my journey must be like that ;)

So I went with my luggage to Gare ‘l Est and waited a long time for I was far too early! I took the TGV to Karlsruhe with the following songs:

1. Sophie Nash- Don’t be fooled (I won’t)
2. Get Well Soon (Hopefully I will)- You Use All Your Senses Just For Being Sad
3. Joseph Arthur- You’re So True (Thanks, Joe!)
4. Paolo Nutini- Alloway Grove
5. Foo Fighters- All My Life (Always yes!)
6.  Dredg- Quotes
7. Mika- Now I Know How Morrisey Felt (kinda yes!)
8. INXS- Devil Inside (of course)
9. Sophia- So Slow
10. Fred Astaire- A Needle In The Haystack

Hanna and her boyfriend (now fiance) Ante picked me up at the station with their cabriolet & it was so frwaking warm in Germany! Hadn’t had these temperatures in weeks! Sunny & Happy =)

First we went to their place & then hanna took me to the city to show me the castle, the theatre & a shopping mall… I spent there much money- bought a cute squirrel pillow & a yellow coat for autumn.

When we got back we cooked a delicious and, without the tomato-onion-feta salad- a vegan dish! Had noodles with vegetables- delicious! Hadn’t had such great food since… Mh…

We watched TV & drank german beer a la “Alsterwasser”.

Slept tight on their couch :)

Last Couch for this vacation!!!

Summer Edition ‘012 Day 41, 7th of September: Looking Forward

header_paris

I am SO looking forward home, my friends & work!

I hate Paris! Hate is a hard word, but I feel so pressured & unwell here. :( The city is beautiful but the people here turn this down… Maybe now my luck has left me and it’s good for I miss home and want to go back :DDSC_2827 DSC_2829 DSC_2837

Rachel was the best thing that happened to me in Paris! xx

In the morning I went with Rachel to St. Germain where we said our final goodbyes. It is so sad. I met so many people and all we can do is to say goodbye…
I went straight to the Louvre & it took me 20 minutes from standing in line on topmof the pyramid to get to the Mona Lisa! (Guiness Book Of Records, you can write me a commment!) I also saw the painting of Napoleon’s crownation by David and some other paintings of Da Vinci!!!

After that I went to the Cemetary Pere Lachaise where many famous people are buried. I visited Jim morrison, Oscar Wilde, Edith Piaf, Marcel Proust, Frederic Chopin and that’s it =) It was a beuatiful & peaceful place- I enjoyed Paris for the first time!!!

I walked around/ outside the cemetary a little bit and went to Arc ‘de Triomph, which was quite impressive! In the evening hours I got to Eiffel Tower, looked for the Banksy graffity “This is not a photo opportunity” but it was cleaned away :( But the Eiffel Tower was great! I spent there some hours.

In St. Michel I had dinner finally in an Italian Restaurant, I had a delicious avocade salad & a pizza magharita, I can just recommend this place! Unfortunately I don’t know the name anymore…

Around 11pm I was back at the hostel, my feet (both!) were hurting very much! I had two new girls in my room, two Australians- Jessy & Jasmin. Kind of funny as well for the best friend of my sister Jasmin is calles Jessy. I went to the computers and chatted with my dear Lu, which was great!!! I missed talking to her so much!

Last night in a foreign country!

Whoohoo!!!!
