Cruising around Europe

“The real trouble with reality is that there’s no background music.” I’m back from my lovely cruise trip. In short: I ate excellent food every day, therefore, gained some weight. I drank delicious cocktails and great wine every day. Poor liver. I went to the gym and sauna most of the days to balance all that excessive eating. I visited quite a number of cities in northern European countries. And i experienced sea sickness for the first time. When the opportunity to go on a free cruise trip knocks on the door you don’t just say no. I and my boyfriend jumped on the Artania cruise ship when it was making a stop at Amsterdam. It was the end of one tour that ended in Hamburg and for us, it was the first destination. Actually, the next tour started from Bremerhaven, Germany. The ship itself is very big and had almost 1000 passengers on board. It has three pools, spa, many restaurants,bars and cafes, library and a show lounge. Germany When we visited Hamburg it was the time of Hamburg’s port anniversary. The district near the docks was covered with booths selling different products and along with […]

I think you’re foolish if you spend your life in one place. The world is gigantic It’s a waste if you don’t try and see it.

Hellooo ! After a decade, i finally found time to write again. My life has been crazily busy. As you read before in Italy i had practically no time to write or even no internet connection. To sum my summer up i can say i liked the job very much like i liked it the last time , i had fun colleagues and was surrounded by happy people. Only one big problem was during my summer, which I cannot talk about in detail. That problem made my job very hard, but now it’s done and back to my regular life. It’s not so regular, though. After Italy, i got the chance to go on a cruise ship with my boyfriend. That opportunity came very fast and i had to make an impulsive decision. Since i basically had no vacation this summer i decided to go.  The cruise took us through England, Dover and the island of St. Peter Port; France, Le Havre; Belgium, Bruges; and Germany, Bremerhaven. All countries were nice, except i got a very bad expression of Dover. I saw only fat and ugly and lower class people. Pregnant women smoking and looking […]

LONDON

My trip from London was more than fun! On Sunday i arrived at the Amstel station at 5 o’clock in the evening to catch the bus there to London, which departed at 7 o’clock. Why i arrived so early ? Because there was a threat of some strike of the public transport so just in case i went to the station to die of boredom. So at seven the 10-hour ride could begin. I couldn’t sleep at all during the whole trip. The bus crossed the English channel by Ferry. We went through Belgium and France. So basically i also went to Belgium and France, but just to make a toilet stop. In Belgium, i haven’t been yet, so it was like for the starters. When we arrived at our hostel, to Piccadilly Backpackers, it was too early to get in our rooms or use the luggage room for our bags. At 8 o’clock we could leave our bags and after one o’clock we could check in. Because we hadn’t slept at all we just were sleeping in some chilling lounge until a guy came and said that it is now allowed to sleep there. […]
