Finally got home today after two weeks vacation with my father. Hopefully I will get some time to write a little bit more and post a few pictures from the trip at some later point in time, but for now my Friday evening/night is booked up by a date with the laundry machine.
My father and I have made our way to Bastogne now. We have been through Utrecht (where the below picture is taken), Rotterdam, De Haan and Bruxelles.
I understand that sometimes when tourists come to Copenhagen and see the Little Mermaid they are dissapointet when they see how small she is. After seeing the Manneken Pis in Bruxells I now somehow know how they feel.
Min far ringede tidligere i dag. Det viser sig at vi skal afsted i morgen. Det er også hvad jeg har skrevet i min kalender for lang tid siden, jeg troede bare først det var fredag. Men jeg er vel næsten klar? Udover selvfølgelig at jeg skal have pakket, men det kan jeg forhåbentlig nå i morgen før vi kører, det er jo først om eftermiddagen.
Det jeg alligevel har glemt, tjah, det må jo så vente til jeg kommer hjem igen…
I went to visit my grandmother today, and after visiting her drove north to visit my father. On the freeway I ran into the rush hour – how people can go through that every day is beyon me.
My father and I planed out roughly where we are going on our trip, booked a few hotels and figured out a bit about the packing. I’m actually starting to realise that we are leaving soon… I think it will be great fun!
On the way home I drow down Strandvejen just taking it slow and watching the scenery.
Tuesday Thomas and I went to Havnebadet, and even though the weatherpeople had promised rainshowers and we did feel a few drips as we biked through Nørrebro, the weather was great when we got there. All sunshine from a clear sky! So we got a bit of sun and a few swimming strokes.
Where did all this great weather come from? It has been like a genuine summer day today! I don’t have any school on Thursdays, so I have had the entire day off. I do have a lot of reading to do however… will get that started real soon now.
Anyway, last weekend went by way to fast. Friday was heavy drinking day! I started out by meeting Sarah and some of her friends (and friends of friends) at Nørreport where we went for a quick beer at Heidi’s Bier Bar. I only stayed for half an hour or so, then I said goodbye and went to meet Esben at Strawinsky. We met up at Gothersgade, and went in. Esben wasn’t drinking any alcohol for the entire night, so I had to do the drinking for the both of us, and I think I did a fair job! Later on more people showed up, there was drinking, dancing, shouting and fooseball. All in all it was a great night with nice company!
Night turned into morning, the club closed and after I a quick tuna fish sandwich I walked home in the light of dawn.
Next day, Saturday, I for some strange reason woke up around 10 am, and could not sleep any more. So I got a bit of studying done before I rode my MC to my grandmothers nursing home. It was her birthday party, and the whole family gathered for a bit of talking and then later dinner. My grandmother doesn’t talk much any more, but when I got there she said something along the lines of “Du ser ud som om du har det godt.” I didn’t give it much thought at the moment, but come to think of it she might be right. I do actually (and have for the last couple of weeks) been feeling quite good. Not that I don’t have a huge workload at school, and there are 1000 things that should have my attention, but doesn’t, but all in all I do feel good!
Anyway, I left dinner early to go see the Matematiker Revy at school. It was great fun. You had to have a background in math (or a related study), but the jokes and the atmosphere was wonder full.
Can’t really remember what I did Sunday, but I suspect that I went to the gym to work out with Esben, but I’m not quite sure.
Monday (I have Mondays off these next weeks by the way) was first of May. So during the late afternoon I met up with Esben, Søren H and Rasmus and we went to Fælledparken to enjoy the weather, listen to some music (we never really found the right place I think) and drink a few beers. However we are / were all serious students (some more than others…) so the day ended early
so, today I went to the gym, met up with Esben and Mark at their work, went for some ice cream with Esben, and then walked home from Frederiksberg – was a great walk in the sunshine!
… and now I’m almost running out of excuses for not reading – what should I do about that?
I went with my dad to Holbæk to pick up our MCs today (or, technically yesterday, as the little hand has passed 12 now). It was a nice, but a bit cold, ride home. I hit rush hour when I got close to the city center but on a MC you do flow through traffic a bit liter.
I also bought a new cell phone the other day. I haven’t quite gotten used to it, and I’m having some trouble getting it working with my pc (think I have the wrong data cable), but I hope I will become more fond of it as time goes bye.
Now I’m off to bed, for you see I have holidays currently, and as such don’t have any papers to turn in, books to read or similar stuff to bother me…
It has started snowing here within the last hour or so. To bad for the kids that they did not get a “white christmas” but hopefully this will make up for that. I’m proberly going to stay inside all day writing anyway, so I really don’t care.
Christmas went fine – all things considered. The food was great, the company was “hyggeligt” and now there is a whole year, before I have to go through the whole thing again.
… well, back to my paper.
My dad and I had a talk some days ago about summer. We are planing on riding our motorcycles down through Europe. We havent (and I don’t think we will) planed any exact route etc. And it’s not like we have set a goal that we have to get to the mediterranean or anything like that. But we will see how far we get in the few weeks we will be going. A casual guess would proberly be that we end up somewhere around southern Germany.
My new years eve this year also seems to finally be falling into place. Søren H has invitede me (and some friends) to join the party at his place, so that’s cool (or, hopefully, going to be cool).
I’m still writing project, and I’m still not writing fast enough to make myself compleately happy. But I guess I should just get on with it instead of writing random bloge entrys or listening to music or playing computer games or…, well, I’m off to write some more – right after lunch!
So, it has started snowing for the first time here this winter. And as I sat in my fathers car watching Frederiksberg pass by outside, with the christmas decorations showing up over the road, and in some stores, it hit me – if winter is comming, so is christmas. Like it or not. It’s not like I didn’t know, or that it should surprise me, it’s just… Blah, I don’t really want to go through it all again one more year.
But I guess there is only one way through the darkness, and after christmas, the days will start getting longer…
