Title: Trips
Post by: Kitty on September 27, 2009, 14:27:16
Like in Vienna I had a more than wonderful time in Gent and Köln and would like to share my joy with all of you ... if you agree of course  ;)

To start I came home from Vienna and before I knew we were Monday the 14th of September on the train to Gent with a heart that felt like it would explode one because if was FINALLY gonna see Tilo and Anne again (haha it was only a week inbetween  :o ) and second cause I would finally meet Joey whom I know how long is it? two years by now? through internet...
And although I had feared I wouldn't recognise him from the pictures from msn and facebook I recognised him right away and he luckily me too (anecdote... I said hi to someone yesterday at the concert of donno the band  :lol:  as I knew him, he's the boyfriend of my best friend but obviously he had NO idea who I was  :P ... so I said Hi, you're Kenny the boyfriend from Jessica right?" and he looked at me "yeah, how do you know? and I said I'm Kitty ... and he looked at me "yeah, so?"  :lol: ... so I turned around and eum stood nice and gentle where I stood before ...)  ... soooo we recognised each other and at first I know I was a bit ow what should I say? but that was over very fast... and it felt like always very natural to have each other around!
So we went to his hotel (I regrettably didn't take a picture of that area  :? ) and went to Gravensteen ... a very old castle in Gent where they kept prisoners locked up and tortured them to speak up... in there we got to see the equipment with which they fought battles in the middle ages and I was amazed how SMALL people in that time were  :?  up the stairs we came to an area where you could see over the city Gent and it was just amazing. To go back down and get to the torture equipments, it's just not-done I suppose how they treated people, yeah perhaps no innocent people, but still people! For me the worst punishment existing is still silence and depression because of annoyance... there is NO need to hurt or half kill people... but then again I never got someone killed in my family yet so perhaps my view would change if that was the case no idea.
we also saw the huge underground basement like hole where they put the prisoners and where many many of them died because they got ill due to the lack of hygiene and the coldness and moistness.

Some pictures from aroundGravensteen:

Than we went to the hotel...and the rest you could read in my concert review

Day two 15th of September 2009.
I got to bed at half past 3 and the alarm went of at half past 6 ... took a shower... took some food with me and went for the bus at 21past 7. An hour later I was on my train to Brussels and on my way to Thalis... I felt SOOOOOOOOO lost at the trainstation but I did as my boyfriend had recomanded just follow the arrows!! And I did... and found my train! So once on the train no stress...just sad and tired and lonely ... this was a journey I took all by my own, this was a journey I had decided to take all by my own MY decision MY life! and I've never done that before... so it brought up quite some emotions just to be in that train. It took 2 hours to get in Köln with that train and what I did was write a few things down and sleep sleep sleep ... arriving in Köln was like magnificent! they have such a beautiful trainstation!!! I liked it for some reason! first I thought fuck I'm gonna pannick ... but then I just went down and everything showed itself out ... before I knew I was on my way to the hotel and got the call from Joey that he got lost somewhere near.

On the train

Day 3 16th of September 2009

We decided to visit Köln for the time we had... one of the things we just HAD to see was the Dom of course! too bad Joey hadn't got time anymore...so the first thing we had to do arriving at the trainstation again was saying goodbye to Joey ... and I looked back more than just once!
The cathedral was breathtaking ... I said to Katerine "you don't have the chance to say "now where is that cathedral" here have you" ... it was the first thing which caught your attention when leaving the airport! Breathtaking I call that!
the second thing that I noticed where the immense amount of statue players  :lol:  competition "who get's the most chances to move"... there was one dressed like a flower ... that was the most funny one I've ever seen.

next we went to the river and sat down for a few moments to enjoy the sight and relax a bit, calming down a bit cause with every step I took it was like my heart would rip further apart... katerine's boyfriend feed one pigeon after which a THOUSAND arrived  :D  and you could actually talk to them cause one of them came my direction and when I said "I don't have anything" it just went away  :lol:  funny animals...
we continued our journey and ended up in a caffee/restaurant where we ate, talked, relived our memories had fun and it was really cosy ... till all at once I felt so terrible that I went to the toilet and cried cried hard and got a message from both Karin and Klodi  :)  ... I think I spend like 20 minutes there haven't I... I know both Katerine and her boyfriend stared at me like that took quite some time  :lol:  but well ... the continuation was like before. We went on time to the trainstation as I still had to buy my ticket and it's not as easy as in Belgium by going to a locket and getting your ticket...so we chatted some more and then my train was there... and by every single centimeter it came closer I knew the threw meaning of those days I had spend in Vienna, in Gent and in Köln and I begged please please don't make me forget this ... let me hold on and locked it in my heart forever! goodbye, I know many people on the train will have been wondering cause I left Köln crying and I was still crying when I arrived Koblenz (which is 50 minutes) but I didn't care it just had to get out ...

Ooh Kitty I just read your post now and I feel so great but sad at the same time... Sort of missing + reminded me of my Basel visit which was so nice but melancholy... And about making people wonder... Well I'll try to tell the whole story later, but I cried too while walking around Basel, then calmed a bit, and then again in the train... But it really gets you better sometimes, o really hurts, rather fits with your feelings...

Happily I also noticed a funny detail which made me smile a bit : Joey and you have the same eye colour !!  :shock: Just exactly the same !!!  :shock:  :shock: Incredible...  :D  ;)   :roll:

mmm ... yeah thing is it takes quite a while...these emotions I encountered the last weeks went really deep ... and for some reason knock me down completely at the moment *sighs* ... and thing is the more I fight the more difficult it is of course...so I decided to write some more then *smiles*... it's just getting to normal is hard isn't it  :)  ...


And yeah Joey and me have the same eye colours noticed that too  :lol: when I saw that picture I thought "WHAT??"  :lol:  ;)

as i promised - i read it just now, when nobody disturbs me... it's nicely written and i remembered our fun in Vienna... and why the hell did i have to cry while reading?  :cry:  my, i miss you so much *hugs*


and believe me, this is something none of us [wien]/you [Köln] will ever forget ;)

Post by: Kitty on September 28, 2009, 14:48:23
the very same reason why I cried when I saw you appear through webcam I suppose... remembering good times  :) who said you only need to cry when you're sad???  :lol:  ;)

yeah I fear though - cause everything I love usually disappears out of my life regrettably often because of myself  :cry: ... but I'm sure this is different... just finding a balance is the most difficult thing...once schoolwork rises again there won't be much time left to spent with and you and home AND my hobbies... but we'll find something  :) in the end you don't always need to read and see each other to feel each other and to know you're thinking about one another or?  ;) that's something you all proved me when I was in Germany... *shining eyes* ...

Post by: Shadows-In-Twilight on September 28, 2009, 14:53:29
nobody said that :P but mostly i do [cry when i'm sad] :P

i'm gonna stop talking now and go to eat my lunch  :lol:

Aww...now I'm all sad again, missing the time we had in Köln ;) and that dome really weren't something you could miss for sure :P I've been thinking about these "statue"-people and especially the flower guy when I saw one last time I was in the city...it really wasn't anything compared to...what 6 or something stading next to one another :P
But I have to say your photo's and what you tell about from Gent and all sounds and looks amazing! :) Sorry I haven't been able to read and comment on it before...you know school=busy busy busy :0/
But thanks for sharing! :D

i had the same reaction when i first saw the picture :)
thank you for sharing your experience with us.
you should try traveling alone more often, i for one love the freedom it gives me. some of my best memories come from those travells. :D

Post by: Kitty on September 29, 2009, 16:00:57
yeah alone and alone...I've never been really alone... I mean I met people there luckily cause I can't be alone alone  :lol: ... very strange I know but I always need someone around even when there are no words spoken and there's just silence... I need that surrounding  :) that's why I didn't move to Antwerp for the time I study...just cause I fear loneliness...
But it won't have been the last time that I travelled alone  ;) I enjoyed being on my own not alone...I mean to have other people around me than family and home friends  ;) ...

@Kat: ach I hadn't seen you wrote  :o how did that happen????!!! don't be sad! we had an awesome time  :D and it won't have been the last ;-) (say hi to your boy from me!) I've dreamt of you by the way last night  :lol: ... I guess I was thinking "now where's she hanging around lately!" ... And yeah soon that will become my problem too ... once next week I'm sure work will be gathering and gathering and gathering and no end in sight... but I decided to just TAKE IT as it comes...and at least make a walk everyday - my dog will like it ... and in that I'm with you all  :) so that's always nice...

And those statueplayers were many!!!! That was like WTF?? ... and the flower guy was a bit weird... he was standing like "in the way" and never stood still I suppose as he stood in the wind and it was quite cold right on wednesday... really weird...

And one day I'll show you Gent  ;) you'll love it for sure as I saw you already loved Köln architecture you're for sure gonna like Gent, my personal opinion is that I like Gent and Vienna more than Köln...but well we didn't really have much time to visit Köln and I forgot to look some things up before I came there but well ... some other time ... but I'll show you around in Gent some day promised  ;)

No worries, it wasn't a long post either...unfortunately :/ but yeah it was an awesome trip and I know it won't be the last, cause I won't let it be!! ;) (The big boy says hi back :))
And I know! I've been completely gone from here waaay too long, but unfortunately what we have this semester doesn't come easy to me so I have to spend more time studying to make sure I pass my exams in the end...and I'm really just in some sort of autopilot routine, and unfortunately everytime I checked the forum I was soo tired I couldn't get myself to start posting :/ I wish I had a dog to walk really...would do me good these days :)

I suppose he was pretty cold that flowerguy cause it was pretty windy around the dome, so yeah that might have been the reason for his eagerness in moving that much despite his statuejob :P

I'd LOVE to see Gent! It looks amazing and seeing that I've only been to Belgium once, I'd love to return and this time actually be old enough to know what city I'm in ;) But yeah you noticed my little passion for architecture? ;) I guess it was pretty obvious...hehe So yeah I might take you up on that tour around Gent ;)
Take care sweety!

Post by: Kitty on September 29, 2009, 21:02:01
of course I noticed sweetheart!
And your boy as well... "look at that window" and I was what? what window  :lol: hadn't noticed was beautiful though... and the explanation about the hight of the building in comparison to yours...it inspired me really the way you talked  :) ... I've only recently turned back to my love for buildings really ... I remember when I first visited Paris I was like  :o  :o  a completely new world opened for me ... and I was really donno shocked by the beauty of that city... but then well studied in Gent and you get used to the surroundings right, when you encounter the same statue every day, the same churches everyday ... but then last year I came to Antwerp new city where I hardly ever came before and that was like  :o that's nice...different from Gent! ... and then Vienna just did it again right  :lol:  I'm sooooooooooooooooo in love with that city I'm capable of going back next year already ... cause I really thought it was beautiful and I didn't see half of it yet so... another city I really  want to see is Prague that's a lovely city I've heard so  :) ... and well with my visit to that one museum in Vienna I also discovered that I might like art...just not all art  :lol:  (meaning paintings and statues) before I've always been disliking it and well not really disliking just I didn't see what others saw in it ... mostly I stood in front of it and was like yeah ok a tree? was it that?  :lol:  but now that i've been there all on my own, in first place because the architecture of the building was just breathtaking and I wanted to see the inside any way, and I had paid and thought well I can't just walk out after half an hour ^^ that I made an effort and well there was nobody to talk to (which I would start doing otherwise) so that I just stared at a picture and at once it moved  so to say :lol:  and I though "wait a minute?"  :)  I've had that with two artists before I love Dali and I love Gaudi ... but further I've been rather rejecting towards art... and that was like yeah revelation really  :D  (thanks to our dear Tilo  :) )  ... ow where was I   :lol:  I keep talking today very strange...my boy was like  :shock: what's wrong with you again? cause I was rather silent the last days...but yeah well illness I suppose I'm better now  :lol:  ...

Well we didn't see much Gent... but there is a lot of beautiful architecture in Gent! Just like in Vienna, the houses on their own carry a lot of worth and stories with them... and a lot of churches/cathedrals as well ... and I'll take you to the very same "restaurant" as I took Joey... they serve well hardly anything except spaghetti but it's the best one I've ever aten! The biggest portions for that price  :)  and it's in the centre of the city so not far away from night-life... there's a cosy cinema as well! Sphinx it's called when I remember well... we like going there just cause you almost always have the entire hall for yourself  :lol:  so can act as if you are at home... but ah well gonna stop chattering now  :lol:  you don't have all time to read me  :P   ;)
I really hope I can take you through Gent! and one thing for sure you won't have to worry about the lack of hotel then ... cause you can just sleep at my place then...

BIIIIIIIIIIIG hug!
Miss ya!

Paris is a very beautiful city in many ways, remember going to Notre Dame (hope I spelled that correctly) that was just amazing...Been fascinated by such big and magnificiant buildings for years now, especially cause we don't really have that same kind of architecture or the enormous churches here, even though we have very old buildings too :)
It's true though that you get used to whatever you walk around in everyday...I guess that's also partly why I can barely think of any truly amazing buildings in Copenhagen, cause I'm simply used to see them every day ;) But I know we've got some, but in another style completely heh. I would love to see Vienna and Prague as well, they're definitely on my top ten and have been for ages :P I've heard so many wonderful things about those two cities!
   Paintings and art in general is something which I love as well...I must say it's conditional love though, cause it has to touch me one way or another for me to truly appreciate it, I'm not the type that likes something/a piece of art just because that's in style ;) I like Dali a lot as well...We've actually got one of his works(well a poster of it, that is) There's also another artist, can't recall his name right now, but he makes very strange, and dark looking paintings...extremely fascinating though and detailed..love that! :P

Sounds amazing in Gent! We absolutely have to figure something out about your showing me around and all :D Once I used to think that history and stuff could be rather boring, but it's definitely grown on me the last 5 years and now I love to hear about old buildings and fortresses and everything ;) and sounds amazing with the restaurant and the cinema! Love food and love  movies :D

BIG BIG HUG!  Miss ya too!!

oh and I'm glad you're feeling better and back to your chatting self ;) aaand I'm off to bed now, to sleep good and long, cause it's my day off tomorrow...weee :P which is also why I have had time to write tonight hihi!

Yeah I had a postcard with one of Dali's artworks :lol: lost it though  :cry:  but I got a well somewhat poster from one of Gaudi's works and that's the main sigh catcher in my room (together with the many Tilo and member pictures that were added this month  :lol: ) ... and in Vienna I got to see Klimt's work for the very first time, well of course I knew Klimt before but I've never seen one of his works outside a book so in real life I mean... and that really fascinated me... 'specially cause he really has different styles!! I'm always amazed when artist are able to express themselves in different languages so to say... in that way they are understandable for different people I suppose  :)
Furthermore I realised that I love a lot of nature in paintings...like paintings from mountains and rivers and waterfalls...that were mostly those who caught my attention...

And another city I truly want to visit someday is Barcelona ... as they have the sagrada familia and I really want to see that with my own eyes! My boyfriend bought a book when he went there... and that's just WAAAAAAUW!! something that really moves me ... and pure art if you ask me...

And history is something that always interested me... for some reason, 'specially the history of buildings and places ... just because donno I have a very lively imagination so I can really see the stories when I read or hear them   :)  and it's always nice to know a bit from the world you live in, why things are the way they are...that's why I love to visit old fortresses (I went to Ehrenburg in Brodenbach when I was in Germany) and churches as well ...

Yeah I'm happy too that I got better... I felt so miserable the last days so ... about time that got back on track  :D  although most around me loved it that I was a bit more silent  :lol:  too bad...

Big hug!!! And enjoy your day off honey!!!

We got our Dali from my boy's mother went she'd been at the Dali gallery...quite nice, but we've only just been able to take it with us from Norway to our place in Denmark, so unfortunately it isn't making any wall look better at the moment. Gaudi is pretty cool as well, actually used some of his work for "mood-boards" for our design for the architecture firm i worked for last semester :P Didn't know Klimt but just checked him out...I can imagine those pieces making an impact when you see them for real :)
And nature is for sure some of the most breath taking thing in the world, whether it's painted, photographed or simply just looked at...I might just be one of nature's biggest fans ;)

Yeah tons of my friends that studied Spanish (it's a rather popular language to study here) have been to Barcelona and it looks fantastic! I think it's safe for me to say that I want to see as much of the world as I can possibly manage throughout my life ;)

I'm feeling rather miserable these days really, not just because I've managed to get a cold...but I dunno...I guess it's just the whole getting back to the routine of waking up, going to school, do homework, go to bed and then all over the next day :/ But I'm sure it'll pass at some point, can't last forever can it? ;) hehe

Take care hun, and hope you had a nice day so far :) biig hug!

:( ow sorry to hear that... yeah i've had quite some problems with the routine thingie as well... hate routine and I enjoyed myself the last weeks just a little bit too good I suppose  :lol: ... but I somehow managed... I fell ill on sunday really ill that is and so had no other choice but staying home on monday...and somehow that did me good...I slept a lot on monday, wrote a lot on monday ... then yesterday I was better and I somehow had the feeling of "yeah let's start again" in the evening... I was all excited and ready to kick when Tilo's picture came and just well was that little extra boost  :D so I went to school today ... and learnt much apparently that was good! We learn to write proper texts  :)  ... now I have a terrible headache again, but that's from the bustrip ...it was way too hot on the bus... way too noisy... and I fell asleep BAD KITTY BAD!  :lol: that's when I get a headache very weird but when I sleep on the bus I get a headache... and I got annoyed by some people in class but I had like they're not worth my energy so I let them be...

AND I had a funny situation today  :D  O was almost at school when I saw this yeah guy with a map so I thought he's looking his way so I looked at him to give him the opportunity to ask me if he wanted to...and he did... and well I knew where he had to be but couldn't explain and still had half an hour AND he spoke English so I thought... I'll just bring you there! ...  :lol: the guy looked at me with those eyes  :shock:  you wanna do that? For me? whom you don't know? ... and I said yeah hi by the way I'm kitty nice to meet you ... and he said then his name and started chatting...but very quick you know guys and when a girl is friendly that can't be apparently ... very quick he asked you have a boyfriend? I went like, since 7 years by now (well not yet that's in december) and he looked ow woow that's a long time... and then he asked if we could be friends and I said of course, I like making new friends... but you know I thought I'm just gonna wait this conversation to give him anything from personal information cause you never know right...and very soon he asked me what do you do with your boyfriend on free days? and I went like eum??? :?  well usual stuff I suppose hanging on the couch, watching movies, chatting, making walks usual stuff...and he went like yeah kissing, fumbling I thought WTF???? have you got any dignity at all? ... so I didn't answer that one...and than he said chilling...I said yeah exactly chilling... and he went like would you like to chill with me some day? and I said yeah why not...and he smiled but like you know when a man gets ahum right and I said no no no not in that way of course I have my boyfriend... and he said yeah right of course... so on and on and really disappointed me you know...cause all I wanted was to be friendly, show him the way and chat like I chat with so many people! ... so in the end when I brought him at the right place he said you're really sweet you know that? I've never met such a sweet girl in my life...and I said like yeah right... and he went really I mean it! and then he asked me can I well call you or something to have a drink together...and I did as if I hadn't heard him so said "I'll give you my email then you can mail me".... and meanwhilst I was thinking HOW can I not give him my personal info whilst giving him my personal info...so I thought I'll just give him a part of my email  :lol:  and I did  :lol:  so if faith is on his side he'll find me...when not he won't... and I hope he won't... cause I think he won't stop till he has enough if you know what I mean? ... afterwards when I went to school I was thinking how people can be that way! I mean do you need to look for so much after kindness? Sometimes people really just want to be friendly help you out and yeah I would have considered giving him my email if he wouldn't have continued on 'my boyfriend'topic... cause he really seemed like a nice guy despite that! Really nice guy... but well ... I didn't want to put myself in problems  ;)  
So I did do my good job for the day I helped him out and had a funny situation with it...I hope I haven't hurt him with that too much though but well...

I hope you're feeling a little better by now... you'll cope  ;) I believe in you! And when you want to talk about it I'm here you know that *hugs*

Kisses!

I'm a little better now...been working on a drawing in Photoshop. Somehow I think the lack of creativity in this semester is slowly tearing at me too...it helped sitting and do nothing but draw for sure :)
Oh you still got warm weather? the warm is definitely not the problem up here anymore :P Not that it's extremely cold, but around 10c and windy...somehow I like it, I like the thought of winter coming, with christmas and all even though I love the warm weather as well...hmm I guess every time of a year has it's own charm right? ;)

Hihi that's really typically boys, or most boys at least :P They always let their hormones run right over any manners they might have hehe...nah well..some guys are like that, some all the time while others manage to control it. At least you aren't the type that just falls for that, and I know when you've had a boyfriend for about 7 years (me and my boy have been together for 7,5 years in dec :P) then you're not really looking around for someone to come and give you any potential problems, then it's friendship only :) But I've got a friend that almost always, if not always, falls for that kind of remarks...  :?  like the half the email trick though, I might just use that next time ;)

Thanks sweety! *HUUGS* :)

I told it to my friends  :lol:  and they were like "naughty! didn't know you could be that sly"  :lol:  well what would I say... still waters run deep?  ;)  no I've encountered this problem before as well... mostly I just hate it cause they throw around compliments and you know what a hard deal it is to believe compliments and all right so... that's horrible... I had fun with the guy though...cause it was funny how hard he was doing his best to gain me for him despite the fact I told him I was together with my boyfriend for 7 years ... really was trying his best...at one point hahaha that was funny a woman past by and I had to move a bit and accidentally his hand touched my hip and he went like "ow I just touched your hip right!" ... and I looked at him and said "waauw big deal"  :lol:  I had to keep my laughter so hard!! yeah those guys not my type at all ... I'm the hunter, I'm the one who chased my boyfriend not the other way around ... so I don't like it when guys take the lead in first place  :P  ... that's the manly side in me I suppose  :lol:  8)  
And your friend falls for that????? I can't believe it how can you fall into something like that????? I mean someone who wants to jump into bed after the first two minutes he talked to you... nè never believed in that...

About the weather...it's not that hot no ... well around 20 during the day. it's like autumn really over here... a bit rain, grey sky but still soft temperatures... but I'm looking forward to winter VERY VERY VERY much... christmas, newyear yeah I love it  :)  the nicest is buying presents for everyone  :D  wiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii I love that!!!!!  :D  

Anyway should go and get ready now ... within half an hour I have my bus  ;)

Good luck at school if you have any today!

I thought it was genius :P I'm a little like you on the compliments side...usually I don't  believe them unless they come from someone i know I can trust, and unfortunately random boys have a long way getting in that category with me :P But it's good that at least you had a good time, and have another funny story to tell and all...that's not always the outcome, so when it is it's great :D
yeah I don't know why she can fall for something like that either...but she does...her and I are very different on the whol boy issue to say it in a nice way ;) I never really understood how people can fall for cheasy remarks and all that and that they actually seriously fall for it..it's beyond me i suppose :P

I had school today and had the most boring day with a stupid busride to follow it on my way home :x
All day my teacher had been talking about something completely different from what he was supposed to talk about, and nobody really cared stopping him, not even the other teacher we had at the same time...it was possibly the most boring and useless day in school i've ever had :?
Anyway, then in the bus on my way home, I took the bus with a friend from my class, who had a big bag with her cause she was going away this weekend, and so the bus was completely filled of course and we had to stand right in front of the doors in the middle of the bus, not to be too much in the way with the bag. Anyhow, one stop before we had to get off, we stopped in front of a shopping center, where most of the people wanted to get off...i'd planned to go over to one side, not to be in the way, but before i managed to do anything people just started pushing from the side i wanted to go to, so I walked to the other side, even though i knew there were people on that side there were supposed to go off there as well...but you know..and so when all the people from the first side had gone off, i hurried to that side so the others could go off, and then this guys says "yeah you're not really standing in the best place, are you!" as he went out of the bus :x  and I was like, well but where on earth should i have been standing then?...argh...sooo annoying!

But now I've got no more school this week and I'm sooo happy for that, cause after today I'll need to recover to be around loads of people again :P

ah that's all right temperature...the 10c, rain and wind is also typically autumn here...I kinda like it, together with the colours the trees get...it's so cosy :P
But yeah winter, I'm ready! so hoping i can go to Norway again this new year and have snow and all! :D and definitely, byuing presents for people are the best thing about christmas together with the general cosyness that comes with christmas :P

Hope you had a much better day than me ;)
Huug!

Thank you Kitty for this nice report!:) I saw it for the first time today :\.  Reading it really cheered me up!:D the memories... Strong things in life, though i can't live without those...

Post by: Kitty on October 01, 2009, 19:22:57
@Snowy:  :) glad you liked it... yeah they're kinda what keep me going right now as well  ;) can't let you all down can I  :D

@Kat: yeah mmm, my day was fine let's say the hours that I spend at school (oooooooooooooooo MOONNNNN...BEAUTIFUL ... sorry had to say that... right in front of me  :) I'm on my room and the moon is peeping just above the how they call it thingie? and just reveiled through some clouds beautiful!) thus at school until the projects for English were well discussed... and then I stressed out ... but the following hour I was ok again... I chatted with a friend so that was nice as well (after class I mean) as I had missed my train *sighs* so I had to wait a fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuull hour... which was then reduced to half an hour which is still long! ... and I went home but the bus driver was just CRAZY!!he drove way too fast and way to dangerous really... like sweep sweep from one side to the other...and I studied some vocabulary on the bus but that didn't work to well that way  :? ... then I got home and my head was bursting again ... and then I got annoyed by some silly questions who are not even worth my energy! But yeah all in all ... I had a good day  :D  the chat with that friend did it all I suppose I told her about my doubts and all and the fear for this new school year... she helped me  :)

I'm sorry to hear that about your day ... sounds a bit like my last two hours on last friday ... that teacher was soooo fucking boring staring at the roof from second one till end that I was like more trying not to fall asleep then paying any attention... I hope they spare you that the rest of the year!! That's not fun!
And quite annoying cause you really feel like wasting your time then!
And busses... yeah that's always like that people get annoyed then but you can't help it either can you? What I mostly do if I stand in such an irritating place I just get of the bus the moment the doors open en get up again when everybody's of... otherwise they just push and drum until they are through... it's the same with getting on the bus ... my lord as if they won't get on it on time... some people are really irritating you can see it in their eyes "I WANT A SEAT AND I'M GONNA HAVE A SEAT SO MOVE IT" ... that's when I think owkee at least one of us two has some respect  for the surrounding and the situation ... so I mostly just take a step back then so that they can rush for their seat... to find out that two stops later that person needs to get off again  :lol:  so stupid! And like NO respect right people have no respect... I always stand up and give my seat away if there are older people...but you think that others do? one time that was really I mean I just couldn't keep my mouth shut then... there was this very very old woman that got up at the bus and the busdriver had stopped right in front of her to be sure she didn't have to go too far someone else got on the bus in the middle of the bus and took the last free seat that was available! CAN YOU IMAGINE???????? HOW RUDEEEEEEEEEE! ... So I got up gave her my seat and said to that other person "that's what they call elementary politeness" and took my standing place in the bus... I was so angry!

So your weekend started   :D  enjoy I'd say!!! I have two more hours tomorrow in the morning...I'll survive that I suppose  :)  

And yeah I do like this season as well but it's a bit donno, I mostly feel depressed in autumn ... because darkness... not enough sunshine... but it is indeed cosy and you can well you can feel that your donno own nature changes with surrounding  :)  but I'm really looking forward to the winter and I DO hope we get some snow again!!! ... me wants snow and walking in snow!!!!!  :D

Well I'll go now ... some mails again  :?  wonder where they keep coming from  :lol:  

Kisses!
Take care sweet friend!

First of all. Sorry for the late reply...haven't felt completely up for anything today really...not that there's anything wrong like that, just needed a do nothing day I suppose :)

Sorry you had a bit of irritable elements during your day yesterday, but glad to hear that despite those few things you manage to have a good day :)
My day today was pretty, slow really...spend the first hours since I got up watching tv, as Obama and his wife were here earlier, because of some OL-thing...not that it was all that interesting in the end, but at that time it was the only watchable thing on tv :P and I heard our prime minister or whatever his title is...speaking english, god his english is probably the worst I've heard in a looooong time, so embarrassing! :oops:  Anyway, that's possibly the most action I had today and I'm actually happy that's all there has been cause tomorrow we have a medium sized family birthday thingy, which usually takes a bit of energy...

God that story with the old lady is really a rude one...i guess that's one positive thing about the Danish system, we only enter through the front door :P But yeah I too also always give up my seat.
Speaking of busses...yesterday, as my boy was going to work, he'd forgotten to renew his monthly buscard so he was reminded by the busdriver...he then hurried to get it renewed and as he was reaching the front of the door, the bus left. So he had to wait for the next one to come....and at the moment the bus companies are running a compaign called to get people to be nicer to the busdrivers, which is a good thing of course, but somehow it has to go the other way around as well right?
Anyway, my trip yesterday was pretty usual in the way that the bus is always filled to the brim at that time of the day, but it's so annoying when you're trying your best not to be in the way and then some, sorry to day so, idiot comes with a remark like that...and because I was sooo tired I guess I took it more personally than I should... :?

I like the autumn and especially days like today, when the sun is shinning and there's barely any wind and all..hmmm *dreamy eyes* :P But january here, that's just rain, wind, and cold...and thats even the month of my birthday :/ that's why I go to norway on my birthday as often as i can, to get snow :D Love snow! Snow can save my day any day! :P

Anyway, hope you had a good day today, and again sorry for the late reply!

*Big hug*

:) well I should apologize for my late reply as well... I wanted to do that yesterday evening ... but I was all at once so bloody tired that I thought I'll just eum get to bed  ;)  ...

Ow I hope you survived the brithday thingy then... I know that can be rather demanding... not that I don't like to spend time with my family... but it's just well donno so many people together and I get confused then  :lol: ... depends also on which part of my family that comes together really  :)

And about the lazy day ... must be too  ;) I think once in a while humans just need to say "go to hell" and just do nothing or everything they want...if that's just hanging around that's just hanging around  :D ... I can be very lazy... veeeeeery lazy  :lol: mostly I have troubles with it though feeling guilty and all ... but well ... it's not else when that happens right  ;)

And busdrivers are about farout the most impolied people I've ever met, specially the women for some reason they're all sour, old, menless woman ... donno ... I'm always or try at least to be polied and say goodmorning and say thank you when I get off... but many of them are like donno really impolied...you have others of course can't generalise that but still... it's like you said, when you see someone's hurrying to get on your bus how long does it take to open the doors just one more time?? I've had that plenty as times as well that they just go on without letting me on ... waiting for a full hour for the next one ... that's when I send them to hell really  :|  and that's mostly when my day gets destroyed cause I can't stand abuse of power... like one of my teachers did!! The one I had for writing of English last year? Remember that one? I won eventually  :P  I passed that exam  :lol:  my was she mad when I came to look it in after my re-examinations... I didn't have to go you know as I passed, but just did it to be able to watch her face god I love victory  :D  :D  and you should have seen her... you know by the way what she said then? I got 9 and 9,5 but the exam existed out of two parts and the other one had given me an 11 I believe it was thus in total I got a 10 to 20 and passed... and she said "you were ALMOST there Kitty, almost, but that doesn't mean you can write now" ... can you imagine? that's just so rude...  and then this year I have her for oral proficiency  :roll: luckily only the even weeks one hour  :P  and my good friend from university (yeah I'm officially on university again  :roll:  it changed during summer apparently) she passed with a 10 with that same teacher and so she's like well focused on really... also cause she has to redo the writing course with her... and on thursday we saw her and my friend needed to switch groups cause otherwise there were courses overlapping... and she said to that teacher "I've proposed I'd join the group from 10.30" and that teacher just said "NO you are NOT allowed to join that group, you'll join the 8.30 group basta" and my friend was like but Miss then I'm here from 8.30 till 17.30 ! with two hours of no classes in the morning... nevertheless she's not allowed to join the later group and she even went to the secretary to be sure she can't be allowed to join the 10.30 group ... that's just what's that?? ONE student more???? ... and moreover she planned an extra session and exactly on that same day as my friend has those many classes over noon!!!! So that poor girl won't have a break during that day... there's nobody who survives such long days without a headache... I was so angry you can't imagine... I was like  :o  :shock: what are you doing???? and she looked at me with that bitchy smile ... I hate fake smiles...
no can't stand it when people abuse their power... and bus drivers aren't else on that matter...

About the seasons; exactly! Although I like the like cloudy days with the sun peeping through once a while with a lot of wind as well ... when leaves fly everywhere and yeah cosy  :)  but I love winter more... when there's snow  :D  wiiiiiiiiiii ... cosy feelings  :D

My day was ok yesterday I suppose... I was as usual a bit down during the evening, donno why that is, I start to listen to my feelings in the evening and they tell me I'm not over my adventure just completely yet... but I'm feeling fine, I'm feeling better healthy as well yesterday I felt like having fever but hadn't so that's good  :)  ... was in need of sleep as well so slept long today wasn't part of the shedule I normally was to get up at 7 but well that's for tomorrow then  ;)  doesn't matter as long as my work gets done this weekend it's fine and I still have an entire day, I do need to pass freerecord though  :lol:  there's a disc I want to buy ...

And well I'm home alone today  :D that feels aaaaaawesome ... nobody around to interrupt me in whatever I want to do... no forced looks that will push me from behind my guitar (cause that's what I'll do in just a couple of minutes  ;) )

I wish you a happy weekend dear Kat!

I guess we can go on and on apologizing for our late responses these days as school has really started now for both of us and leaves us longing for bed in the evening ;)

The birthday thing is this evening...so haven't survived anything just yet :P But yeah I like being with my family, it's only those few members I guess you can say we have our differences and yeah, in the end it's pretty exhausting...normally when my brother is there, they ask more to him than me, and it suits me just fine...then I don't have to hear anything about my hair, clothes or music taste :/ and he'll be there tonight, and he has just been out on tour so he should have plenty to say, leaving me to myself :P

I think so too...lazy days are obligatory for me at this point, and because i usually get all my homework done sunday I don't have to feel guilty, even though those stupid chapters are always on my mind grrr :P

Wow and I thought I have had bad teachers! I'm sorry for your friend and you! That teacher sounds like a nightmare!!:shock: I've had such bad teachers during highschool though, god! I hate stupid teachers that abuse their power...I had one teacher that in one year did two things to me. Firstly he accused me for ruining some towels on our study trip to Berlin, cause obviously I was the one that had dyed her hair, so he wanted me to pay the hotel for the towels, luckily I had some good friends in that class and the one that had done it, said it was her fault...god, I was furious at that point! Anyway then some months later as we were reaching the exam he failed me in one of my hand ins, while my friend had the same number correct and she passed with no problems...so I talked to him and had to tell him that this and this was correctly done, and told him I deserved to pass, and he passed me...but for crying out loud, you shouldn't have to go through such things in school! honestly the only fair and good teacher I've had before university, was my teacher in German...I miss those classes :P But yeah I agree any form of abuse of power is just terrible!

Today's a rainy rainy day, I think it's been raining since some point during the night and it hasn't stopped yet..but yeah it's kinda cosy too, if it just stops while I'm on my way to that birthday then it's fine hihi ;)

You know, I tend to feel a bit down in the evenings as well at the time...but yeah usually when i sit in bed reading my book and all it eases a little and the next morning I'm up for it all again :P

Uh sounds nice! I'm looking forward to hear the result of your and guitar's alone time ;)

thanks and I wish you a fantastic weekend as well :D

hi sweety,

uhu exactly, for me it's mostly my sis I'd like to have with me during birthday parties she's awesome my sis  ;) always a lot of fun to have her around and donno she's much older then me and so has much more wisdom the way I think older sisses should have ;)
Your bro was on tour ... how did he turn out? A lot of fun?

And you never believe me but my own experiences are that teachers of German are mostly the kindest ones... this year the same ... well one of them is the same as I had for oral proficiency of German last year I have him for writing this year and his classes were always that light of the week
 :D even when it was at half past 9 and that means I had to get up at 6 in the morning ... it was a pleasure to get out of bed for that lesson!!! And the same this year... I have another one from German culture that is, that man is just fuuuuull of passion for his course and that's just really cool... and they're the ones who'll get me through my year as well... together with all of you  ;)  
But that's really ugly from that teacher you told there...

Today it was and IS rather stormy weather, sometimes the sun came through but mostly it was raining... but didn't see much as I lost myself in my recordings...which I couldn't get right... still not right completely but my voice was at the end so stopped before I ruined it  :lol: I spend hours on them...even forgot that I had planned to visit the shop  :o  now I'll need to wait till monday  :cry:  and a well... it's now that I still have time to record so  :lol:  should use that free time...

I hope (now I can say that right  :lol: ) you survived the birthday party and had a nice evening and night  :)

Kisses

Hi again honey!

Again sorry for not replying until today...I felt all sick yesterday (dunno why) so I used all my energy on homework and relaxing.

I survived the birthday thing, as I'd imagined most of the talk centered around my brother and cousin (they're around the same age...34 and 30) So me and my boy was let more or less to ourselves. Well there was one thing...they all kept asking me what I wanted to do after I finish my BA and as I'm taking my BA as a Top-up programme I only just started and I'm finished in a year and a half, but that means I haven't really thought of what on earth I might be doing afterwards :P and everyone seemed to be asking me if I would take the masters :? help! hehe
But other than that, it was fine :)

My brother is the one that gets me through duch family dinners as well...it's just so much easier when you aren't on your own and if everything turns into some boring discussion you can always turn to him :P
But yeah he had a great time, he was down in Israel for a month...a little envious, especially after having seen the photos :P

You might be right...at least that's my experience as well...But then I've only had the same teacher in German my 3 years :P But she was really passionate and even though she was fairly strict, she was really kind and helpsome too :)
I miss those classes really...I want to take up German again actually, so I'll be able to not just read and understand it but also use it ;) I just need to get that BA done first hihi

We've had really stormy weather over the weekend as well! Yesterday it was stormy and somewhat rainy. But Saturday it was raining non-stop and me and my boy got completely soaked on our way to the birthday :-/ Today it's been pretty sunny and warm actually...I think almost around 15c... :P

Sorry to hear you had so much trouble with your recording that you even forgot going to the shop :( I'd like to hear your new song though, if you don't mind of course ;) And I really hope you managed to go to the shop today then! :)

Anyway I better be off, just got in the door and I still need to do some practical stuff here before I start on my homework :)

Take care *huuuug* Miss you!

:o Don't be sorry sweety!!! I hope you're better by now then  :( *big hug*

Yeah I know those questions about what are you going to do when? my answer is always we'll see...I'm now in my second year... hope to succeed, when not then it all depends on how much chance I have to actually pass the second year cause I fear I won't do it another time... I mean I lost way too much precious time on studying already... don't get me wrong I love studying, I love books, I love learning languages but you know three years of hard work on university and higher education already...I don't want it to become 10 in total  ;) but with a bit of luck next year is my last bachelor...and I really have the feeling that it works out now... I've read in some of the books already and it feels like aaaaaah this is what I wanted to know! Now that's exactly the question I've asked myself as well! And you know last year it was still ...voc.gram and it was as if nothing else existed ... and to be honest, I don't believe in books when it comes to actually applying a language, you need to use it need to get feedback on what you write and get corrected (that's what I love about Karin now, I can finally write in German with her and she corrects me when I'm wrong  :D how cool is that?!!!! cause that's exactly the way you learn a language you know by making mistakes!) ... and not by studying grammar and making silly exercises you then know by heart...I should make work of my vocabulary though I feel that it doesn't you know I have to get a bit more of an extended voc cause I won't reach my master with what I carry with me now.
But thus to come back on that birthday party I can imagine there were like storming a thousand questions on you when they asked you 'what are you going to do after'  :D  and everyone knows that's the WORST question you can ask to a student but nevertheless they all ask it  :lol:  my family is the same, I've told them thousand times "don't ask after my studies, I'm fine, you'll hear it when I fail or succeed" but everytime again "how are the studies" ... inbetween? I DON'T FUCKING KNOW!!!  :lol:  ... and like your brother my sister usually carries me out then ...by changing subject or anything... yesterday we had a family gathering as well but I ran off inbetween several times just because I felt like donno the conversation was about flowering things and bees so to say... about all and nothing and I hate such conversations... just as you say boring conversation... only now my sis wasn't around  :lol:  

speaking of sis and bro; he went to Egypt??? :-oooo no chance I could see some surrounding pictures? ... my sis went there eum pumpum that was two years ago I believe... magnificent! I really want to go there some day *dreamy eyes*

You got sunny day? We got another rainy day ... but somehow I don't mind... I had to come through the rain, but I like rain in some way or the other... just problem is I don't like it to kéééééééééép raining...and Belgium once it starts it doesn't stop so easily  :roll: and it's REAAAAALLY getting colder now... I was dressed too cold today for this weather was all freezing on the bus and outside on the way to school and home.
But well now I'm inside ... thing is that I didn't go to the shop then ... too lazy for that  :lol:  no I studied! good girl ^^ I know  :P  and read some things but I just didn't want to go out through that weather again... it's cosy inside weather with a cup of coffee and my books and computer  ;)

Yeah the recording was not the problem, it was more me not able to play dignant  :roll:  and I always forgot a part of my lyrics...one time I did it good in my opinion and just as I thought ok this works I got the text wrong in the end *grom* ... but I got it in some way  :) so I'll send you through mail  ;)  it gives an idea really... I'll record it again some other time.

And I'll better get back to my functional writing ^^ good book ... learnt so far that you should always start from a plan when you write for a certain audience  :?  does that count for letters as well? cause then I failed already  :lol:  ... no but I think that will work out better in the past, now I have that knowledge of how I could start, cause that's mostly my biggest problem when I have to write a larger text, it gets a bit incoherent because I cram too many ideas on the same spot in the text... donno me and writing a long way to go   ;)  

Take care you too get better soon!!!! Miss ya too very much  :(

Kisses!

Aaah so finally I've got time and energy to write here! God I hate Mondays and Tuesday...my schedule is packed those days! :-/

I agree with you on the learning a language...you definitely doesn't learn to use it properly when studying it in an academic way, or at least I don't :P We used to do all these grammar exercises and analysed books and stories, and of course we only spoke german in our german classes...but when we took our yearly trip to Lübeck you kinda figured that describing characters wouldn't get you anywhere when all you wanted was something to eat ;) Of course I know how to get something to eat and I can do directions and stuff hihi...and when we've been to germany, me and my boy, we usually tell germans to just speak german and we'll answer in english :P
But yeah my plan is to learn it by using it and probably while staying in Germany over some months :) Not going to pursue another Bachelor after this one...one's gotta be enough :P
Anyway, it's great that you've got Karin to practice your german with! I used to teach myself English that way actually...I could barely speak a word and was one of the worst in class but then within half a year I was speaking away :P
Actually Lacrimosa basically did the same with german for me...music gave me the interest in german and so I decided to study that when I entered highschool along with french, english and danish of course :P (we used to have to "lines" A math one and a langustic one...i took the latter and now I'm taking a math-related BA :? hehe)
Back to the Family birthday...the thing is with all those questions...I just started on a new school and kinda a new direction as well..so everyone were interested in that of course...and I told all of them the only thing I knew for sure I would do when I'm finished is moving to Norway, and even though I've told them for years that that's what I want to do, they always say "Really?!" :? I love my family but I have a part of my family that isn't so acceptable of "different"  and they're usually there for our bigger gatherings...ANYWAY that's life :)

Yeah, or well Israel to be exact :) I'll see if I can find some pics...there should be some on facebook at least :) But yeah my bro is sooo lucky, he has been about everywhere i really want to go and that's mainly by touring so he has been paid for it as well :P  I'll have to earn a fortune to get to see just half of the places I really want to see! God I miss and love traveling and see new places, new people and eat new food :D

We've had quite good, but cold weather these past days, well except from this morning when it rained and rained :-/ and the temperature and daylight are just dropping like nothing...it's clearly moving towards winter...but it's still not freezing cold :) Uh yesterday morning when I had to get up early, it was still pretty dark outside and the moon peaked through my curtains...beautiful really :)

Haven't got your mail yet? :? But I'm still really looking forward to hearing your new song! :) I'm sure it's great just as it turned out now, your songs has never left me disappointed! :)

aah I know that...I think I'm the same way with writing really. Especially now that I barely write anything but reports :P

Take care! *big hug*

P.s. I'm feeling better. I've just got a cold that comes and goes as it likes at the moment.

Post by: Kitty on October 07, 2009, 17:47:55
your monday and tuesday are crammed  :) ... with me it's only well monday but only how they say that one week and the next week not  :lol: forgot the word  :shock:
Happy you could write now *hugs*

Yeah that's exactly the reason why I'd like to be able to go to Germany next year...there's the possibility to mmm Erasmus that's called I believe and you can go to several cities among them Köln so I'd probably go for that... if I make it to the third year without too many extra baggage of the second year that is *crosses her fingers* ... I'd really love that... cause that's where you learn the most.
And for German it was a bit the same... when I was 13 I didn't get German on school yet but I just went to the library and studied some on my own  :) just so I could be able to understand it ... and I was one of the most motivated students for German on secundary school level I remember every one was like ieuw German do we really need that? blabla... and I was already reading my schoolbooks at that very moment...

Your family really is negative against your personality aren't they  :(  sorry to hear that... it's not nice when your family doesn't understand you ... I've got some family parts as well who fake they understand  :roll:  I recently found out about that which was rather painful ... but might also change again of course... I mean they don't have to agree with everything I do... but I think when you want to move you should  :)  you should follow your heart and you really love Norway right ... I can understand that by pictures I saw of it  :)  so why wouldn't you go ... but it's nicer to leave knowing that people stand behind you of course.

Well up to now I never really discovered what travelling does to a human... I've always had my family (mom and dad) around ... last year I went to , was it last year? ... anyway I went to England then with my boy...so I didn't really do much about planning and you know ... so this year was really I mean like Erik said it yesterday, "don't be sad or down Kitty you're just making your own way and there's nothing wrong with it" ... because I'm having a bit you noticed that right problems to give it a place... and in some way I did but then at moments like I just had, I feel like nope you didn't recover fully yet... you all really impressed me and left deep marks ... and that's wonderful and positive it gives me a lot of energy ... but you know my past and there's this big big biiiiig fear (panic sometimes even) for losing what I found - which is I know ridiculous but tell that to my heart please  ;)  ... so that was my first experience with really travelling on my own and doing what I want to do when I want to do it where I want to do it... and thereto came that meeting you all was like meeting heaven!
Didn't really eat new food ... but well ... that's the situation ... I haven't really eaten much because first nervous of concert and meeting you all and second overwhelming emotions so ... and second I'd eat spaghetti every day!

weather  :lol: that's like a cliché topic  :lol:  here still rainy Belgium  :P  about the moon I saw her yesterday evening around 9 very unexpectedly  :) peeping between the clouds as well... it's very lovely when that happens...

And yeah ... that's eum my fault that you didn't get that mail yet  :lol: completely forgot about it! Will do it right away  :lol: ... thanks for the huge compliments by the way ... *hugs*

Take care you too! Good to hear you're better... and yeah I had that too that cold then there then gone...but now it finally broke out so I think I'll be over it soon now  :D

BIG HUG!!

Post by: Einsamkeit on October 07, 2009, 18:38:43
wow our posts gets longer and longer don't they? ;) not that I mind though heh

My monday starts late, but then i get home, eat, study, go to bed, get up tuesday morning, go to school, get home and then I'm smashed, as usually I've been studying all of sunday as well....but ah well...now the worst is over :P

Yeah that's a great opportunity for you as well! I'd wish we had something similar for coders/designers ;) but I guess the relevance isn't quite there in the sam way :P
But both me and my boy wants to improve our german knowledge...my boy has never actually studied german but taught himself everything through music :P and he understands quite a bit! I also wanted to take german to understand lyrics and because my boy understood most of what he listened to, I got inspired :)
But yeah in highschool we were only two from my class studying german and only 5 in total when I took it on high level...that was sooo cosy though! :P

Well, my mom, dad and brother accepts me and I guess my grand parents as well...but the rest not so much. They've said some pretty inconsiderate things to me...and they don't accept me at all. They used to talk to me a lot, about books and all, but then I changed and I think for the better...but you can't make everyone happy can you? anyway I know my parents and brother is supporting me and that's the most important thing for me, except for friends of course :)

I discovered travelling...I dunno years ago...but especially when I went to Scotland on my own with 3 friends and we basically backpacked all around Scotland...it was a lot of travlling in not a long period of time but hell it was fun! And then i think around last year me and my boy really started travelling together, as in meeting new people and you know letting go a bit on each other as well...:) But yeah Köln was amazing and I'm so worried about meeting new people, you know me, but this was such a good experience! It really taught me to just talk to people some times and let go...I love that! Can't wait for the next Lacri-family meeting!! :D

But yeah I know the feeling of, actually not really knowing if what you feel is all right. I was really happy about Scotland and all but Tommy was just sitting back here and working and all...but it's funny cause when we were in Köln and I had been you know all consumed by the music and all, so I felt a but guilty cause I thought maybe I'd left Tommy out a bit...but then at the hotel he said "it's so nice to see you this happy, it makes me happy as well" awww :P So I think somehow we've managed to reach a point where we let each other be who we are or want to be, you know :)

yeah weather hehe that's what you talk abot when you've got nothing else or..:P anyway not much has changed since my last post here...it has gone dark now but that's all :P

aah that's all right sweety! I was just soo curious and wondering if something might had gone wrong ;) you don't have to thank me for my honest oppinion :) *hugs*

I hope you'll be over it soon! I just really hope mine decides what it wants to do, cause it's really annoying :P

*huuuuuuuuuug* miss ya!

@Kat:

that's a pretty heavy tempo indeed ... I've got luck  :D

And your boy really learned it all by himself??  :o that's amazing!! really  :) ...
I think you need a lot of discipline for that  :D

And it's then like further family that doesn't accept you very much? that's livable  :) with me it's a bit well not even real family... family through marriage... that is... so ... as you say you can't do good for everybody although I would want that  :? but just indeed not possible...

Made me think ... you never know what happened today  :lol:  :lol:  I forgot to tell you earlier because my mind was you know going crazy with the visitor we had here that didn't just remained a visitor  :lol:  ... I was waiting for the bus this evening as I missed it  :(  so had to wait like half an hour and was listening to music and staring like always in nothingness when I have nothing else to do  :D  and I looked to my left and looked straight in someone's eyes and those were very intriguing so I looked away and thought "wait a minute" ... and looked back and heard "kitty?" ... that guy!!!! THAT GUY WAS BACK  :lol:  :lol:  I thought fuck he found out I didn't give him my entire email adress  :lol:  and yup ... he started talking and at once he said "I tried to email you but well it gave an error something was wrong I think, then I wanted to call you but I realised I didn't have your phone number" ... and I said yes that might be possible ... and he looked at me and asked can you perhaps write it again?... and I thought a well, I promised if fate brings you back you'll get my e-mail so ... I gave him my email this time  :P  but he'll have to be nice... otherwise he'll get to know angry kitty and be sure you don't want to meet her  ;)  so he went away very happy  :roll: guys and hormones  :roll:  although I had been quite norse I must say cause I had a terrible headache already and then missed my bus so at first I had something like "fuck off"...but as I said I have a really nice feeling around him so I'll give it a chance ... you never know ... I can always stop answering mails  ;)  ... but it was like NO WAY there you have him again  :D  ... strange how things turn sometimes right... I really thought I'd never ever see him again and a week later he's already in front of my nose again...

And indeed In Köln I kinda forgot time and space really when I stood there with all of you in front of the entry ... chatter chatter and yeah really cosy  :)  I remember at the room with Natalie she first took a shower whilst I was writing my review and afterwards we started chatting and chatting and before we knew it was 3 o'clock  :lol:  and then we had something like we should really sleep now  :P  ... but it's cool though it has been since I was 12 I believe the time I got a lot of friends sleeping at my place... and we always chatted till late night... that's so cool  :D  so I was happy than ... and really let go and just yeah chatter enjoy each others company... yeah I liked it  :)  

And it's really sweet of Tommy that he enjoyed it that much  :) I thought he was pretty cool  :lol:  but ssh don't tell him that  :P  ... I had a great time with you two as well eventhough we were all a bit emotional on Wednesday I still enjoyed your presence  :)  ow that made me think... did you get that picture of you and your boy already? I should send you that one as well shouldn't I, I think it's a lovely one  :)  
And I got the same reaction of my boy by the way, he realises that it meant a lot to me ... and first thing he asked me when he saw me in Germany was "and? How were the concerts?And the meetings? I read the goodbyes were hard?" ... I had send him a message that I was really really sad because I had to let go of you all for unknown time ... so that was really awesome and although I was creating quite a distance during everyone and me those days in Germany (that's a rhyme saw that  :P ) and despite that he stayed calm and was there for me ... really amazing...
And yeah somehow we find a way, I need a lot of time for myself and all lately I noticed that I really have that need so I just give myself that time and space now ... and he somehow handles with it very well, but he knows what it is to need time for yourself he's like that himself so ... we're cool  :)

And I saw this time you did get my e-mail  :) that's great  :D  

*huuuug* Miss ya too!

Post by: Einsamkeit on October 08, 2009, 15:41:27
Yeah he taught himself well what he understands now...actually just by translating the texts and that was before google translate and all that...so yeah that's pretty cool...but now he really wants to learn to use it and correctly too ;)

It is livable but it's still my father's sister...so aunt or something? that has a problem...her, her husband and my cousin...but yeah as long as it isn't MY family I can survive it! :)

haha funny that you'd bump into him again!! I hope it works out without too many of his hormones going bazerk :P That would be a shame if he is indeed a very nice person!! :) and true, you can always stop e-mailing him back...that's the one good thing about giving people your email :)

It WAS really cosy just standing there in the entry chattering yeah! It didn't feel like as bad waiting for the doors to open and the show to begin ;) But the whole of that evening and of course the day after was amazing!  I've had some really bad experiences with "friends" when I was younger and unfortunately such things sort of stick to you, so this in Köln and even just in here taught me a lot! :D

Yeah he really enjoyed it and your company (and the rest too of course) he even missed it all when we got back home :P But he does like Lacrimosa as well so it wasn't the hardest getting him to enjoy himself I suppose hehe :P But yeah I won't tell him, but thanks ;) It would just take to his head if I told him hihi :P
Really sweet of your boy as well!! He really seems like a good guy too! :) It helps a lot it you can give each other some space as well I think...cause even though you're perfectly in love with the person, sometimes you just have to be on your own or do something on your own - without it ending in disaster :)

Got your mail yeah ;) Haven't got the photo of me and Tommy, though as you've probably realised I took it from facebook ;) I'd like to have the original though, if you don't mind? :)

A bit shorter this time, i think...but it's only because I've got a bad headache... :-/

damn Kat I completely forgot about answering here  :shock: now how did that happen? I was emptying my mailbox and came across the staraddedtripstopic (yeah in gmail you have the possibility of adding stars to mails so you don't forget to answer them ... but somehow  :lol: it doesn't work with me...)

I'll send you the picture! Of course I'll send you the picture  ;)

As for the guy I met that problem solved itself he's not capable of sending me emails even WITH the correct e-mail adres so I think he was fooling around  ;)  :lol: or he did forget it was an underscore  :P  8)

And indeed in a relationship you need some space... I mean in the past it was normally me who had problems with my boy doing things separate and all ... but now it's more me who needs that space... you it's not that I love him less or anything, I just need space and time to think things over specially now since September I have a lot to work with ... specially cause you saw I'm a rather sensitive one and that just well takes its time to get into place an all that  :) thereto comes school and I panic again  :shock:  *calms down*  :lol:  why, I have such problems with new schedules ... but I'm cool I'll figure something out  :D step by step... I get me through all of those books  :lol:

Anyway need to close here... just got a phone call that dinner's ready so  ;)

Sorry for the really late reply this time  :shock:

hehe it's all right Kitty...it wasn't as if we weren't talking elsewhere anyway ;)
And such things normally doesn't work with me either...I kinda just get used to the starts or whatever being there and then I stop thinking of them as a reminder :P

haha it's quite an accomplishment not being able to send an e-mail with the correct address :lol: ;) But good he isn't troubling you at least hehe :P

I think because Tommy and I spend our first..what..hmm 4 or 5 years around 2000km apart we kinda had our troubles when he moved here and all of a sudden I had to take time out of my everyday life to be with him, which I of course wanted to...but it isn't just that easy falling into new ways :P But we figured it out of course and I think we've found our way now, giving each other space and all :) But no, needing space has nothing to do with loving someone less, I think it's what is needed for a relationship to work in the long run really :)

I'm sorry it took me this long to reply here, but this whole thing with my friend has just been taking up so much of my energy :( I still haven't been able to get in contact with her and after having tried the last couple of days, I must say I now need some sort of sign that she wants this to work out as well....I really can't tolerate this kind of childish behavior and if this is the way she's going to be when confronted with problems then we're way more different than I thought :s
Anyway, together with this, I kinda realised that what I'm studying now is not really what I want to neither study nor work with...and because this is an education for a profession I'm thinking of dropping out and start on something else..and even just the thought of it gives me loads of energy, so I think I'm on to something ;)

Btw, I'm sure you'll manage school...when you first start a semester it always seems a bit overwhelming, but as long as you're studying something you like, and I know you are ;) then you'll get through it...I'm counting on ya ;)

I hope by now you're feeling a lot better! I've only read a little on the forum and I've just seen that you were getting worse :( I absolutely hope that has turned or will turn soon! *hugs*

Miss ya sweety!

Post by: Kitty on October 16, 2009, 16:35:43
hia sweetheart!

Yeah same here, I mostly don't notice the stars anymore...

As for my health no, nothing better, even worse, my headache doesn't disappear anymore so I'm off to the doctor again in the evening  :cry: ... I know it's my own fault as I kept on doing jobs for school needing the computer for that...plus then checking the forum on regular basis... but well ...we'll see what he says...I'll probably just stay off after I wrote this ... in order not to destroy my own health any further... I started crying earlier just because of the massive tension in my head I'm feeling at the moment...
But I'll survive no worries  ;)

As for the guy, I guess he just got the message  :P the moment he realised I didn't give him my real e-mail the first time... but well that was my good right I didn't know him so  :)  

I'm sorry to read that about your friend...it's really pity that people behave this way sometimes. And things they might regret lateron in life really... I have a friend like that who dropped me like nothing when I got together with my boyfriend and now she's trying to get back in touch with me and I'm willing to forgive her you know, I'm of the principle that everybody deserves a second chance... but if I then hear stuff behind my back which aren't that nice... well you know she just made me see she hasn't change a hair! not a single hair!  And it's really childish to run away from your problems the way she does... but well it's a trick you know, you have two kinds of people those who face reality and those who run off... but be sure it's the ones who face it who learn most in life even when that's hard at those moments! But chosing the harder way will teach you something... therefore yeah i can't really give you any advice on that except for listen to your heart in that, when you think it's no use putting in any more of your energy in that relationship than I think it's a right choice as well as chosing to put more energy in it ... just be clear with her... sometimes it helps to be clear...  remember what I threw in front of my boy? And see where we are now  :)  ... but of course in discussion you're always with two and if one of the two sides isn't willing to cooperate then it's no use at all ... but just make sure she knows what will happen if she keeps acting this way that's the only advice I have really  ;)  For me it would be clear I wouldn't want to risk such a beautiful friendship  ;)

YOU, you gonna do something else for school?  :D cool! What? If I may be that curious  :oops:  that's great... I mean too bad that it didn't work out with that other course, but as I just said you should follow your heart... that's what I did as well in my education and indeed I'm doing something I truly want ... if my health let me that is  :roll:  ... but in the end I donno if that's what I want for my job really I told you that as well  ;) but that's future and I decided not to go and dream too much as for a dreamy type as me that's not always the healthiest thing to do  :)
I wish you could luck with that new way!!!

How's Tommy doing by the way? Is he any better? And you? Got back your health?

So I'm off now taking a shower and going to bed I think once more *sighs* I hate being lazy (ill they call it but well)

Aaaw I'm soo sorry to hear that you aren't getting any better :( I was really hoping to get some good news. But yeah I guess you better just try and take good care of yourself..but I understand that laying in bed all day can be almost as exhausting as all the schoolwork...I'd wish I could help you sweety :(

I really don't want to loose my friend, but it's very hard being the only one trying to make things better...and I don't really work that way either, I need some sort of cooperation. I wanted to give her a couple of days before I gave her the though words, just to actually give her a chance to get her head around the whole thing as well...I guess I might just have to face reality and tell her what the consequences of this kind of behaviour are :-/
But she is the kind that tries to aviod conflicts even if it means that you'll never talk about what bugs you...and all right, I've been through some things in my life where I couldn't escape like that, and that has probably thought me to face problems and I normally want to do it before it's too late...and apparently she couldn't take this kind of action...
But you know, friendship is one of the most important things to me, I put my friends extremely high in my life...so it really hurts, situations like this :(

hehe well it depends a bit on where in Norway we're moving too...Firstly I have to study some suplimentary subjects, such as math...that will take me half a year...then when we move to Norway I'm looking at either media-production(making movies, audio etc.) or movie science those are the two I want the most, if that can't work out then possibly vet's assistant - so something completely different but still involving one of my big passions, animals and helping them :P
I really just realised that I have absolutely no interest in making web-based systems and making money on that...and I might had gotten a completely different job in the end, but I can just as well enjoy studying and know that I'm following my heart...cause I just know I'm not doing that now...I was just telling myself "well it's good to have some programming experience and there's more jobs as well" but I'm just not that kind of person! If I know already now that I won't be satisfied with such a job I really shouldn't put myself into a box I can't get out of later on...so I'm doing this! I'm taking a chance while I can! :D

Tommy's slowly getting better. Thanks for asking :) He has got a terrible cough which worries the hell out of me...but he says he's fine so maybe I should just trust ;) As for me, well I got a terrible sore throat Wednesday and I thought "That's it, now I'll be getting the flu as well" but miraculously I've managed to stay well since then, not even a slight fever or anything... :)

Take good care Honey!

*HUGS*

:o  waauw... vet assistance  :D that's indeed something completely different... but I think a really thankful job, cause I know no creatures on earth that are more thankful on this world then animals  :) and no I'm not speaking about spiders then  :shock:  :lol: ... my niece tried that, but she gave up in the second year for unknown reasons, cause she was doing really great... as an average student that is, yeah she had to take with her two courses from the first year but look at me I'm having redone my first year three times and STILL need to take one course with me  :roll: so that's I think just inevitable with the demands nowadays... even my sis says that they are getting to ask too much of people in general and also from students I mean NOOHOOO we're not robots yet so YEHEEES we do forget things!
anyway  :lol: I'm doing my best here to get back on track it's very hard though cause most of the time I'm struggling with what am I going to do? this? o no that? o nono better that one ... and before you know you're hours further... and have done anything at all... a problem most students know as well  :lol: ... so I just decided Kitty WHATEVER you do is GOOD cause it needs to be done anyway! so yes  8)  I think I'm just trying that tactic  :lol:  

But that's really cool vet assistance... and movie science?  :shock:  there's science about movie  :D  my, I never heard of that before! operation - Movie!  :lol:  sorry no what does that involve then?
Speaking of movies, I decided to go and see the "this is it" movie in memorian of Michael Jackson... my god is that going to be hard  :( but I think I'll regret it when I don't go ... they only play it for two weeks in the cinema apparently so I just have to see it! closing up with that part of my life...

And I agree, you should follow your heart in studies, I've encountered soooo many people who are not doing what they really want to do... I mean who don't dare to change or anything... but you know it's NOW that you gotta do it! NOW that you can get those experiences with you! I'm happy that I could at least help one friend out on that... someone I've been following secundary school with... and she quit school and started to work, but had difficulties in finding a job where she could stay... and she said actually I don't want to work she said one day I want to study but I'm not allowed to from my husband... and I looked at her  :shock: what?! You are NOT ALLOWED??? Then what does he have to say about it in first place? Isn't that part of your life instead of his? I mean you know my vision on that by now, there's NOBODY on this fucking planet that can forbid me to do what I want... I mean I will listen to opinions and perhaps agree on them when I think they're right, but when I decide that will be MY decision and not someone else's! So I asked her, then why doesn't he want you to study? and she said he doesn't want to give a reason for it... so I said then well? Why would you listen to such egoisme? I mean if he would be able to give you a reasonable explanation why he doesn't want you to do it than you would perhaps be able to understand it... and I said if he really cares about you, and you really want this then he'll understand it when you go to study in the end... I mean that's what love is about right? that you despite the fact that you don't always agree on what the other does that you let him do if that is what makes him/her happy! ... so she did  :D and they're still together and she says well he kinda understands it... so  :D I was so happy you can't imagine! cause she really you see it on her face she's like another person again, so happy and full of energy! that makes me feel so great!

As for your boy, well men tend to say "I'm ok" easily  :? I know that from mine... the only times he goes to the doctor that's cause I almost carry him there  :lol:  ... but yeah if he says so  :) I'm sure he'll be ok  ;)  I hope the bugs leave you alone as well!!! A lot of people are ill nowadays really scary!
but anyway  :)

Take care sweety!
Miss you!
Big hug!

I'm so sorry I haven't been online much or on the forum these past days. I've been down with that flu my boy had or something similar at least so I've been staying in bed these last couple of days :S

Anyway, Yeah vet assistant is very different from what I've studied so far...but I've actually wanted to be a vet or something similar since I can remember...The study only takes two years in Norway but is extremely hard to get into and there's only one school and it's in the exact opposite end of where my boy is going to study. So with Norway being an extremely loong country it looks like I might have to go for Media production or the movie science program instead :)

Well Movie science is the direct translation of what it's called in Danish/Norwegian but it's basically analyzing movies, why the director has done this in this or that way, what's the meaning and what movies mean to society and how their role has changed, etc etc.

Well sometime I really do feel like my current school thinks of us like robots. We have tests every Monday and Tuesday where we get 2 minutes to answer about 15-20 questions! Every single one of them being things you just have to remember but does nothing to help you understand the subject :S And we're not allowed to look in our books!
But yeah sounds like a good tactic to actually manage to get through some of it ;)

Wow, I can't believe your friend weren't allowed to study! I'm glad though that you could help her and that in the end he accepted it :)
I couldn't imagine my boy telling me not to study...I don't think I would listen unless he had really good reason so say so...but then again he's also studying and we both knew from the beginning that we wanted to get a higher education so I suppose that sort of sorts it our :P

Yeah they do, or well my dad is the complete opposite :s Last christmas when both me, my mom and my dad got sick he was just complaining and complaining and it was just a cold, a bad one, but just a cold! And with every cough it was like he was proving a point of how bad he felt...aargh! :P
But my boy won't go to the doctor unless he thinks he's dying...won't go for a check up, just to be sure...but yeah he's back in school and working so I'm counting on the fact that he'd tell me if he got worse :)
So many people are down with a cold or the flu at the moment....but it is the season, well at least here it is so it's pretty usual in that way :)

Oh btw, did you see "this is it"? :D

Anyway, I hope you're all right and all!

Hugs! Miss you big time!!

ay sweety,

Sorry to hear you had some terrible days behind you  :( hope you'll be feeling better soon! As you mentioned it's the time of the year indeed... not to mention it's NOT smart starting school again when you're not healed yourself for at least 70% cause I'm having a cold again already... got up with a soar throat yesterday morning and today I started coughing again  :roll: but well I think I'll survive a cold if I survived the flue last week ... and it'll pass soon when it starts being colder the germs die anyway  :D *prays*  :lol:

I hope you'll get out  about what to study but I think as long it's a decision from the heart it can't be wrong really  :D That movie science sounds a bit like a study literature  :D but then with movies... oooh that's what I dooo miss from two years ago, I had a lot of analyses from books and all... but well... now I finally learn HOW to write!  :D and how to analyse a text in order to translate it. But something's wrong this year donno what, donno why, but I feel like AAAAAAAAAH STOP TIME STOP TIME I MISSED SOMETHING  :lol:  donno where that feeling comes from... I guess just a too low self-image yet again *sighs* but I finally started with making coursbooks and reading coursebooks and just decided to do it without a regular semester plan cause that's just getting on my nerves "I need to do that" ow but "I don't want to do that now" and then well you know usual shit  :P

AND you won't believe but that's exactly what I thought today as well... you know we have about 10 courses now this semester ... and they all act as if their course is the only we follow ... and than they wonder why we all "look so tired" ... I mean HELLO we're not robots!  ... "read that till next class" that being 50 pages on one week for 10 courses that makes 50 times 10 makes 500 pages a week plus projects, plus working on your pronunciation, plus writing an essay, plus having some free time ... yeah that works in the end our days count 24 hours right  :shock:  NOT  :roll:  ... anyway  :lol:  just needed to reduce my anger  :P  I think they're getting more unreasonable every year at higher education when I hear what first bachelors have to do extra now in comparison to us last year... that's just you know... and our schedule was already heavy in my opinion. But then again working is no option for me cause I really want to do something I like if that means NOT sleeping for two days in a row that's just not sleeping two days in a row man but I'll get that diploma!

But every week on Monday and tuesday  :shock:  on MONDAY  :lol:  that's the most unreasonable thing I ever heard, who lays a test on MONDAY!!!! ... I think that's hard right and are that really open questions than? Or multiple choice? But even multiple choice is really hard...I remember I had an exam on University in Gent two years ago for culture and we had about 70 multiple questions I believe and about 2 hours to solve them and I really needed ALL of my time to do that...ending up with just a pass mark  :roll:  and I really had the feeling I had done great but well ... so 15-20 questions in 2 minutes that's just not possible I suppose...

And no haven't seen This is it yet... I believe in cinema here in Belgium from 28 of Oktober, but tickets are almost ordered I'm just looking for someone to attend me *sighs* for going on my own is a bit well boring and my boyfriend doesn't want to come with me  :(  *looks around "volunteers here?" * (that rhymes  :lol: ) ... so I'll see it for sure when I really have to all on my own ...  :P

Get well soon sugar!!! Make sure Tommy takes care of you right!  8) or I'll kick his ass next time we meet  ;)  :lol:


Big biiiiiiiiiiig hug!
Miss ya

It's all right...I'm much better now thanks :) My school actually has a policy now because of the Swine flu that we cannot go to school if we have flu-like symptoms, so had to stay home the whole week, but ah well :)
Hope your cold will pass soon enough! :)

Yeah I guess you  could compare it to literature actually :) You have all that about the angles the scenes are shot at and all which I guess it's kinda the same with literature actually :P But I also think we learn how to do all these things but I'm not completely sure...I'll find out ;) But yeah I'm definitely going for something I know deep down is what I want, and I'm not going to think about if it'll make me rich in the  end, cause I don't really care to be honest :P
I know that feeling soo well!! I'm sure I'll be like that all next week only because I stayed home these 3 course-days this week!! But to be honest, it's soo difficult to care about a study when you're almost certain you're going to drop out anyway :?
But anyway, sounds like you're making good progress and all so I'm sure you'll be fine :)

500 wow that's a lot of pages!! I usually have like 150-200 a week and that's like technical stuff..sighs..takes hours to get through! :? But 500! I'm amazed that you're still standing!!
But yeah I had the same with highschool/college actually...cause every teacher just had that idea that this HAD to be though and it was like nobody really knew why, other than it HAD to baah! And now again...only this time it's on a muuch higher  level! But yeah, someone ought to tell teachers that there's only 24 hours in a day!

They're usually multiple choice, but very technically questions that can be quite hard to even understand...so yeah that's how a start every week! weehee or nor :-/
But my teacher has some sort of idea that this will helps us to find out if we have what it takes for the exam and that we get everything out of what we read...and I'm like, weeell isn't it more important to understand WHAT things does instead of it there's suppose to be a "?" or a "@" sighs...:?

aaw I hope you'll find someone who can go with you!! Looking forward to hear about it when you've seen it :D

Nothing much to report from here :) having spent a whole week at home, it seemed like soo much fun doing the grocery shopping for the weekend today haha :P

Take care and have a great weekend and evening!!

*biiiiiiiig hug!* Miss you! :)

good to hear about the policy, here they're quite lazy in it... only my doctor, he was like you got flu symptoms and I was like eum yes but I don't have a lot of fever... and he was like ... but you still got the symptoms... and in the end you're stressed...stay home... I was like ow  :? yeah well eum work on my guilt feelings...cause I've been to school with those symptoms the week before so... but in the end don't see it helps much  :P everyone is falling ill around me  :) ... it's just the regular "flu-moment" you know...
My cold goes up and down, up and down, as the weather you could say
 :lol: but i'm much better already cause the headache disappeared a bit, I still suffer from my neck and when I don't take care of that my headache returns but well ... this night I got migraine my god  :shock: that's only the second time I have that but I didn't sleep not for one second before 4 o'clock... and then at 6 the alarm went off and I was like "SCREW THE WORLD I'M STAYING IN BED!!" ... and slept until 9 so ... alright  :)

And I'm getting the hang of it again yeah... took me a while to get back on track with studying, but now I'm into at least 4 books by now  :)  ... and I don't obbey  ;)  that's all I do to keep standing...I mean it's UNREASONABLE what they ask me so i just do what I can and try to work towards priorities... as I have 5 exams in january of which two I need to write my own coursebook *sighs* jup again... as well discourse studies as I told last year we have an english book, dutch slides and the exam is in Dutch so I try to get all the information in Dutch... German culture which is a book from 500 pages on its own  :shock:  *dies a little* and it's very interesting but I really need my time to get around the reading... and then picking the information I need for the exam is really hard... but well that are stuff I concentrate on plus the projects for this semester and the rest...well when I find time for it  :)  I'm of the idea that there must still be life next to studies otherwise I won't survive I've seen what happens when I do so with biomedical science so...

And as you say, I can imagine it's not easy to do your best for something you're not really interested in anymore... but I'm sure you'll get trough... and I tell you one thing ... don't delay decisions you already made  ;) that doesn't bring you anything  :)

As for here, things kinda fell into place since yesterday morning when I got out of bed ... I've been doubting as hell the last weeks, due to the enormous amount of information that came ahead of me with school and then fell ill and missed classes here and there... and was scared that I kinda made no chance anymore to make it this year  :shock: I know!! sounds crazy  :lol: cause the year just started but well... I kinda found strength again in september, something that made me down at the beginning brought me back to my drive for my studies and that's really good  :)  ... so now life just takes it run and I try not to well you know interrupt it too much but just let it run the way it must run... I'll see what comes at the end of January when I did my first exams there's no need to worry in advance is there  :)  still got all chances of the world... and that's kinda what I realised yesterday on my way to school on the bus  :)  and people even noticed that my friend asked me "you look good today, what happened?"  :lol:  I was like nothing some insights... peaceful cleared some stuff with my boy yet again  8)  ... so a productive week you could say  :lol:

well I'm gonna close here  ;)

I wish you a very nice evening and weekend as well!!
Get better for the full 100%
Greetings to Tommy as well ;)

Yeah it is quite good but despite the flu policy everyone seems to be getting sick :? but yeah well the kind of swineflu we've got is a mild one..you barely get more than a slight fever which I guess is also why they keep advising people to stay home if they don't feel well...cause normally you wouldn't care much if you only had a running nose and all that which could as well be a cold.

I hope you're feeling all better now sweety! Migraines are terrible!! Once I had one that lasted for 3 days...but no matter how long you have them they're no fun at all! :(

Sounds like a good plan with your studies! ;) Especially with 5 exams coming! that's a lot! I've got three, all of them project exams but still it's only 3!
But it's definitely important not to forget to live as well :P It's so easy just spending all of your energy and time on studies (mostly cause teacher tend to think that you have to ) but you won't get far without enjoying life just a little on the side and I know for my sake, that that's the only reason I've been able to study non-stop since the age of 6 :P

Really good to hear that you're doing well with school and all :) I know the feeling when you're home sick or you've been gone and come back and realise how much you've missed...it's an instant drawback and you start doubting if you'll get through but normally you get back on track and everything will be fine :) I've had such two couple of days. Didn't do well in my tests, cause obviously I hadn't been there last week and there were quite some references to that :? But you know it's always like that...you always have to get back into it, and honestly, we don't get grades until our exams so those tests can go to hell ;) hehe

It's has been some weird couple of days...meeting my friend again in school and all...yesterday was really bad, but today was a bit better...so I suppose at some point we'll get this sorted out...somehow. But I was extremely exhausted and on my nerves (or on my boy's nerves ;)) the entire evening cause my dad had been so bad! It was like being in a movie about american highschools and teenagers, with the way my friend and our third groupmember acted  :shock:  hehe but yeah what doesn't kill you make you stronger right? and I've been through a lot worse ;)
Now I'm looking forward to tomorrow with absolutely no classes and only Thursday with afternoon classes (and those aren't very hardcore hehe) so it's almost weekend for me! :D

Anyway, Take care sweety!

right... time to give a little description of my travel on thursday and friday...

It all started on the bus, unfortunately I don't have pics of that since I slept almost the entire way to Bonn...
Once in Bonn the first thing we did was visit the Museum of which I don't remember the name, and not much of its content either cause it was not the kind of museum I'd eum do at two hours  :roll: ... way too big, way too much information and way too precious to just rush through... it was about the German history after world war II thus from 1945 onwards. It was very interesting and saw many things which I already new from history last year but which now got an impression, got a view, an image connected to it... but as I said two hours for such an amount of information is just waaaaay too short...but interesting.

After we lunched in the afternoon we went on to Haribo-shop in Bonn, where I was surprised and I thought "GET ME OUT OF HERE I'M GONNA BUY THE ENTIRE SHOP" but I got myself together and looked for the sugary bears ... after which I decided I'll buy something for me and my mom, something for my dad and something for on the bus  :lol:  AND I managed  8) ... didn't buy more than needed... and then we were FREEEEEEEEEEEEEE... we visited the city of Bonn, the Altstadt that is where you also find christmas how they call it in English in German it's Weihnachstmarkt... and we wandered around a bit looking for Beethovens Geburtshaus (so his house of birth, where he grew up) but unfortunately came too late  :( and only managed to take some pictures from the garden of the house. after that we went for some drink and returned to the bus to leave for Köln.

In front of the City Hall in Bonn

we arrived Köln later than expected and almost feared that Nathalie would be there before I ever got there... BUT lucky we were, we arrived there half an hour in advance... after which Nathalie called me and I told her where she could find me... I was just chatting with some friends in the entree of the hotel when I heard the door open and tadaaaam who was there?!  :D  :D  yupyupyup I rushed over to her and was very happy to take her in my arms again... after some minutes of waiting and waiting for a couple who stayed in and nobody knew where they were we were able to go to "Früh am Dom" where everybody ate (except me for I had a terrible headache which prevented me of getting hungry) and we took some lovely pictures had some lovely chats  :)  and got loads of interest from my teachers  :roll:  (and fellow students who even asked me the day after, was that a friend of yours kitty? no it was an alien who coincidentally dropped near me and I started talking to  :shock:  what a question  :lol:  OF COURSE IT'S A FRIEND OF MINE!) after we dined we went of for a Glühwein but it was rather difficult to find one as ... tudum Weihnachstmarkt closes at 9  :lol:  :lol:  my god, that's when nightlife starts  :shock:  ... BUT we found one  :D  and I survived it ... my first Kölner Glühwein ^^  :D  together with a good friend... imagine my happiness  ;)  we walked around a bit and went back to the hotel I was very sad when I had to say goodbye and somehow I didn't want to let go of Nathalie  :o  but I had to ... with the small  hope that maybe we found some time to meet up again on Friday but regrettably Nathalie didn't find the time ... therefore we took some pictures  ;)  so you can enjoy it a little bit Nathalie as if you were there  :D

:D yeah was a great time overthere! And I really loved it that I saw Nathalie again, it felt really like coming home after a long journey ... even my friend said, "and this was the second time you saw her?"  :lol: she couldn't believe it that you built such a friendship over the internet, but I always claim if you stay yourself even if there's a computer inbetween you can't get betrayed can you  ;) ...

I even managed to talk some german with Nathalie this time  :lol: cause my friends kept nagging, why do you speak English with her? she can speak german, you're in Germany you can speak German? What's the English about  :lol:  :lol: ... but that's just a habit I suppose  :lol: ...

@Grazia: Mozarthaus is really nice, I did that with Klodi in Austria in september and I really loved it, one advice do take the what's it called like the electronical guide (like a speaker who tells you about Mozart's life and carrier) I really regret it that we haven't seen Beethoven's house, had we arrived there 5 minutes earlier we would have still be allowed to enter ... but well we were there 5 minutes too late   :cry:  so I'll have to go back  :lol:  :lol:  ... in Köln I saw they have a museum about Beethoven as well :-) I'd like to visit that as well someday... the Beethoven house was in Bonn in the pumpum Gasse... a sidestreet of the Sternstrasse  :D  I'll never forget that now  :P  

Anyway happy you enjoyed the pictures  :D ... the Chocolate museum was a bit boring I must say... I enjoyed the part where you could see the making of several chocolates... we even saw how they wrap the St.Nicholas you know the typical one that's wrapped in a paper completely... was nice... but the entire how is chocolate made didn't really interest me but hell  :lol:  I did like the tropical thingie I've got pictures of that on my facebook... inbetween you could enter a special room where there were like mango trees, and also the trees where those cacao beans grow on... and it's very funny cause it wasn't really rain, but like a constant very dustfull smog that was created in that room, I was completely wet when I got out of that room  :lol:  I liked it... got some pictures there but didn't dare to make any more just because well didn't want my dad's camera to be destroyed  :lol: ...

I also got this clip from street musicians who caught my attention, I was stunned donno why, but really stunned cause of the sound they produces with three men with only there hands  :)  look for yourself:

I decided to revive this old topic in order not to creat a special new one  ;) I want to share my impressions and pictures from my trip to the Ukrainian Carpathians, the mountains in the Western Ukraine  :D I was there for the fourth time, but it's never too much , and there's always something new and insteresting to see there !

All pictures are at my facebook profile : http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=205745&id=796917507&l=e1fda692f1

I spent there almost 2 weeks and went on two excursions - to the mountain lake Synevyr in Zakarpattia (the biggest lake in the Carpathian Mountains of Ukraine). There are two different legends about it : first legend states that the lake has appeared out of the tears of one of count's daughters Syn', because her love, the Verkhovynian cowboy Vyr, was killed by the order of the count, her father. Another legend says that there were a father and his son, and that son wanted to take money from the father, that's why he killed him, but his father's last words were " Syne, vir !" (which means " Son, believe !").

The scientists estimated that the lake was created in the result of a powerful techtonic shift that was caused by an earthquake. The forrest around the lake is believed to be 140-160 years old. There is a very small island in the middle of the lake with an area of a few meters which is called the Sea Eye (Morske Oko). The island has been flooded for sometime.

On the way to Synevyr, the river in Zakarpattia.

Also I went on an excursion to the rocks of Oleksa Dovbush in Ivano-Frankivs'k region .The Rocks of Dovbush is the group of natural and man-made structures carved out of rock at around 980m ASL.The name of the formations comes from a leader of opryshky movement, Oleksa Dovbush (1700-1745).
The rocks are a part of the Polyanytskiy Regional Landscape Park.
Archeological finds point to an existence of a pagan observatory in the rocks around 10-17th centuries BC. In the 10th century the complex became an important fortress and a forpost of Yaroslav Osmomysl in his conflict with the Grand Prince of Kyiv.

The day after "Eine Nacht im Bergwerk" (http://www.lacrimosa.ch/cms/forum/viewtopic.php?t=5047&start=20) in German and also English translation :D


Zürich City

Zwei Stunden nachdem wir im Zelt eingeschlafen waren, weckte mich die Kälte… Ich war schon auf paar Festivals, aber so kalt war es selten! Ich wollte mich in meinem Schlafsack kaum bewegen… Arme Klodi, sie hatte nur eine Decke! :shock: Wir machten uns erst mal fertig und frühstückten.

Two hours after we felt asleep in the tent I was waken up because of the cold… I already was at several festivals but that cold it was rarely! I hardly want to move in my sleeping bag… poor Klodi, she only had a blanket! :shock: We got ready and had a breakfast.

Danach gingen wir zum Hauptbahnhof, um dort das Zelt und meine Sachen in einem Schließfach abzuschließen. Wir gingen dann in die Stadt und schauten uns Zürich an. Ich denke, ich hab mich in Zürich verliebt!! :D

Then we went to the main station to put the tent any my things in a lockbox. We went to the city and meet Zürich. I think I felt in love with that city!! :D

Klodi wurde dann schon um 13 Uhr wieder von ihrem Onkel abgeholt… Seit der ersten Sekunde, als sie gegangen war, habe ich sie vermisst! :( Und nun musste ich die Zeit bis zum Abend überbrücken, bis ich wieder mit einer Mitfahrgelegenheit heim fahren konnte. Ich schaute mir Zürich also noch einmal an und trotz schlechten Orientierungssinns kenne ich mich dort schon fast aus. :lol:

Klodi was picked up by her uncle at already 1 pm… since the first second she left I missed her! :( And then I had to wait until I could drive home with my drive in the evening. So I view Zürich again and despite my bad sense of orientation I almost know that city. :lol:

Am Ende dachte ich mir, dass ich die letzten Stunden bei mir tragen möchte, irgendwie festhalten. Also bin ich in ein Schmuckladen gegangen und mir ist sofort das hier ins Auge gesprungen…

At the end of the day I thought that I want to carry the last hours with me, to hold it somehow. So I went in a jeweler and found that…

Abends ging es dann wieder zurück nach Deutschland, wieder mit sehr netten Mitfahrern und Fahrer! Ein toller Trip, den ich gerne in Erinnerung behalte! :)

In the evening I went back to Germany, again with nice people! A lovely trip which I’ll keep in my mind gladly! :)

Jenny, thank you so very much for sharing the photos and emotions!  :D
and indeed - nights in Switzerland at this time are very cold as far as I remember though the days were hot - I was nearby Zuerich from 6th to 10th of September and I remember how I was shaking when being outdoors at night )))

lovely ring!  :D it is the marriage finger, isn't it? )))
by the way I wear my Lacrimosa ring on my marriage finger, it's so happened the same left finger is ocupied with the other ring which doesn't fit anywhere else - so I'm married with Lacrimosa  :lol:  :lol:  :lol:

Lake of Zuerich, isn't it? Amazing view!

And I can feel your good memories looking at your photos! :D thanks for sharing!

@Julia: I was in this city for a very short time (I had to leave to another place from there) - it impressed me the same way as you, it is peaceful )))
And Switzerland is a Paradise, yeah  :D
*though my colleague who travelled with me was nagging all the time that "nothing different with Russia! Plants are the same! Grass is the same!" - I was fed up and asked whether he had expected banana trees and monkeys there or six-winged elefants or whatever....uuuuggggrrrhhhhhhh*

I haven't been to Switzerland, regrettably :( But when i was in Europe - in Czech Republic, Italy and San-Marino - I felt it VERY different from Russia, completely different! the grass was the same and not the same...
and the people too, very different...
I may sound unpatriotic, but I liked it more than my own country. :roll: I felt more... safe than in Russia, I mean not physically safe, but a general feeling...

Then we went to the main station to put the tent any my things in a lockbox. We went to the city and meet Zürich. I think I felt in love with that city!!


I've never been in Zurich, but I feel the same) I hope someday I can go there.

Thank you so much for your emotions and photos! I really like the architecture, all of these steeples, towers, churches ...The city is like a dream) :roll:

So, I decided to share a little bit of what I did in Paris. As most of you already discovered you can find more pictures on my facebook-account.

we arrived at our Hotel in Charenton around 13.30 I believe

(http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/d2q3-3s.jpg)

First thing we saw on Friday was the Pantheon, which I could enter for free considering I'm a minus 25 and European student...  :D so I've seen lovely lovely things and one of the things that caught my attention was the very lovely ceiling!

(http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/d2q3-3t.jpg)

I also loved this painting very much :

(http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/d2q3-3u.jpg)

Some Foucault was around as well:

(http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/d2q3-3v.jpg)

When we got out it was already dark and so Paris at night with le Tour Eiffel at the background:

(http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/d2q3-3x.jpg)

After warming up in a café nearby the Pantheon we decided to go to Montmartre and get up to the Sacré coeur ... we did cheat and take the lift instead of the stairs, but I think nobody will blame me with a toe that was double its size by that time...

Sacré Coeur:

Melissa and me:

View on Paris:

A hot chocolate to tease Klodi  :lol:  :lol:  :D

(http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/d2q3-42.jpg)

Day two we went to the Louvre after being way too late...



(http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/d2q3-43.jpg)
and we queued for our tickets ^^

(http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/d2q3-44.jpg)

we saw very impressive things, one of those that impressed me most is the following:

(http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/d2q3-45.jpg)

(http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/d2q3-46.jpg)

And this one stole my heart:

(http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/d2q3-47.jpg)

At some parts of the museum the architecture of the building impressed me more than the paintings and the sculptures that you could find in it :

Paris in darkness:

On sunday we went to the famous cemetery Pere Lachaise

(http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/d2q3-4k.jpg)

(http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/d2q3-4l.jpg)

(http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/d2q3-4m.jpg)

and it was crowded with ravens

(http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/d2q3-4n.jpg)

(http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/d2q3-4o.jpg)

Chopin's grave:

(http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/d2q3-4p.jpg)

Morrison's grave:

(http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/d2q3-4q.jpg)

looking where to go:

(http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/d2q3-4r.jpg)

Oscar Wilde's grave:

(http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/d2q3-4s.jpg)

Edith Piaf's grave:

(http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/d2q3-4t.jpg)

then we ended up on a Christmas market ^^ and ate a pancake and bought chocolate

(http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/d2q3-4u.jpg)

(http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/d2q3-4v.jpg)

(http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/d2q3-4w.jpg)

(http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/d2q3-4x.jpg)

We went to another museum but I wasn't allowed to take pictures there and I wouldn't have got many after all as my toe went on strike and with that my entire body. After the museum we had our dinner together and then it was regrettably time to say goodbye  :( but not without another picture  :D

Giiirls :P  marvellous, amazing and just very coooool! I hardly met in my life a person who stayed indifferent after visiting Paris. Once heard an opinion that the Seine flows its way very alike the circulation of the blood in the body, and that`s why everyone feels so cosy and homelike in Paris... I really enjoyed watching your photos!

that's cool!  :D yeah we're Paris-lovers in the family, my sis and mother both fell in love with this city as well ... and I did too the first time I was there. First cause it was the first bigger city I went to and second cause it was I think the first weekend I spent with my boyfriend all by myself and had enjoyed his surrounding day and night very well ... but well, Paris city of love... it didn't steal its name I realised there about a lot of people I love them very deeply and very purely and finally dare to admit to myself that I truly love them. I learned a lot since I was last time in Paris I saw *getting too thoughtful again* and that my road has turned and twists in directions I had never dared to dream of... but it's a good way I took, it's a way full of love just as I had wished it myself when I was little. But I never heard the anecdote  :) it's a lovely thing  :D and would explain a lot indeed cause I didn't come across many people who dislike this city neither  :D

I was looking through my trips-pics today and decided to show some photos taken by me in the Czech Republic. I`m simply always interested in watching the others` photos from various trips and maybe these my pictures would also bring you joy. So, that are my beloved Prag and the town hall in Liberec (unfortunately, this charming medieval town was damaged during the flood this summer..)

Post by: Kitty on February 07, 2011, 16:30:35
so as you all know Melissa came to visit Belgium and allowed me and my boy to be her friend-guides for three days :) so let's go

Friday 04/02/2011

I got up early as I really didn't want to be late at the station to pick up Melissa. And despite the fact I've read things in the morning which really disappointed me, my worries disappeared as snow in front of the sun when I saw Melissa :) I was half an hour early in Antwerp but that was ok, since I didn't know which tram I had to take and so decided to go by foot  :lol: just not to end up on the other side of Antwerp. Arriving in the railwaystation I was amazed... normally our railwaystations are ugly, dirty and all but smelling nice khem ... but this one is one to be proud of I think :) it reminds me of the railwaystation in Cologne :) anyways I asked a nice lady where the train of my friend would arrive and hurried to the platform so I would be there when Melissa arrived and I was only right in time. THEEEEERE she was fiiiiinally again :) and she brought me an absolutely fabulous rose which I'll be planting in my garden later :) so I'll always have a piece of Melissa in my garden :)
Chattering we found our way to the Royal Museum of fine arts in Antwerp where we saw two exhibitions one was about Kiefer a German artist whose arts are rather dark and doomish if you ask me, he often relates to the war-history of his nation and well it's rather depressing sometimes ... there was one art-work with a goose and I'm afraid that was a real one  :shock: that sounds maniacal ... anyways some of his works were pretty impressive as well :) lighter and donno nice. The other exhibition was about 21th century architecture of museums all over the world including the one we were seeing the exhibition in. Also Paris museums and one that got stuck in my head was the Zentrum Paul Klee (I think it was) in Bern Switzerland... the reason I remember it so well is because I have the image of Switzerland with high mountains in my head but on the pictures I saw of this museum the area there is rather ... flat
(http://farm2.static.flickr.com/1174/1380328780_33725dca22.jpg)
I don't have any pictures of Antwerp as I forgot my camera  :oops:  but well after the museum we head back home and I Melissa saw my home AND my rabbit:
(http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/d2q3-6r.jpg)
we went to the shop for ingredients and baked the Lacrimosa-cake :)
(http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/d2q3-6n.jpg)
(http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/d2q3-6o.jpg)
After dinner we watched "Ratatouille" of which I haven't witnessed the ending as I fell asleep in the couch  :oops:  anyway I woke up and we brought Melissa to the hotel (we both agreed next time she'll just sleep at my place ^^)

Saturday 05/02/2011

We left early as we had quite some plans for the day. Appointment at 9, actually arrival at 9.30 men are sometimes worse with clothes than woman  8)  :lol: . Finally we were on our way to Gent and I was overhappy to be able to show it to Melissa and to be back myself finally as well! First we sought ourselves a spot to park the car and then we walked around a bit.

(http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/d2q3-6s.jpg)
(http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/d2q3-6t.jpg)

We went to Gravensteen, I showed it to Joey two years ago as well. I think it's a must whenever you get to Gent as it contains quite a lot of the history of this city... and you get a wonderful overview on the city when you're up :)
it was a bit scary with the wind though  :shock:

after some hours of freezing we decided to get some hot chocolate and something to eat :)
(http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/d2q3-6y.jpg)
and it got this loveliest chocolate cookie along with it ^^
(http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/d2q3-70.jpg)

after renewed energy we continued our journey up to the sea. We decided to go to Knokke-Heist as we wanted to visit the butterfly-garden ... but ... it was close :( ... so we went straight to the beach

and then finaaaaaally
(http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/d2q3-75.jpg)
and quite stormish due to the heavy wind:

(http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/d2q3-78.jpg)
and so was my hair >.<
(http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/d2q3-79.jpg)
after the loads of pictures taken we enjoyed the peace of the sea "in silence"
(http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/d2q3-7a.jpg)

after a coffee at some pub we slowely returned back home :) having loads of fun meantime and enjoying each others surrounding ... it's so good to have a dear friend so close knowing what a lucky human you are to get such a huge amount of love!
At home we cooked as planned :) and then headed to the cinema for the late-evening movie at 22.30. We watched Tron: Legacy and I liked it very much, as far as I could judge the opinion from my two companions ^^ I think they liked it as well. What I liked most about it was the music which really created a suspense! the story on its own was ok, but I think with different, less fitting music it would have been a less good movie.
Then it was time to say goodbye for a while as we went for a short night of sleep.

Sunday 06/02/2011
We set at 10 to meet, but again we were late >.<... nevertheless we got on our way to Brussels. I wasn't too happy at first as my cold was terribly harassing me and with only 7 hours of sleep (like mice; they sleep very bad I heard) but I managed to enjoy the day nevertheless and absorb as much of the experience as I could. First challenge was to find a place to leave the car, we went near the railway station where Melissa would catch her train in the evening but it wasn't as easy as first thought ...this is Brussels Baby! AND we spared ourselves 17euros  :shock: can you imagine normally you have to pay 17euros for half a day carpark! But since it was sunday we didn't have to pay ... *relief* ... up to the Royal Museum of Fine Arts in Brussels (yes, we have one of them in every big city :) ) where we found out the Ensor-exhibition which we wanted to see was in another building... finally we got there and I must say I've seen lovely things in there! Ensor is an inspiring artist and so down-to-earth in the way he learned things... Melissa was right when she made the comparison between him and Tako  ;)  perhaps not in style and thoughts, but definitely in "need-to-draw-and-to-create" :) he was still very young when he found out that his way was the art-way :) ... the exhibition was called Ensor Revealed ... in Dutch it's alluding to his masquerades one of his most famous artworks is "the intrigue".  So far I had only known his masquerades by the way, I was impressed by his other works :) on of his marines has stolen my heart! After the exhibition we visited the museum of Music instruments :) it was an amazing experience :) we had this headphone which played music with the instruments you could see in front of you ^^ and it was really really cool  :D  I had a lot of fun in there, didn't read too much about the information written on the boards and such (cause I was tired of reading since the other exhibition took all of my concentration) but I just enjoyed absorbing the musical atmosphere in there and the old times the instruments were breathing :) ... then we realised we were nearing the end of our trip ... but first we went for some dinner...and a small walk through the area in Brussels :) after which we slowely got back to the railway station as we still had to taste the cake  :D  SUCCEEDED!

I forgot to mention that Melissa (and me as well *admitting*) is incredibly forgetful  8)  :lol: she was oversweet to bring my parents a gift (which she shouldn't have done), but forgot to tell them it was in the fridge... with the result: my parents asking me "what is this, Kitty? Are we allowed to touch it?"  :lol: ... not to mention they already did  :lol: ... but she's soooooo sweet and innocent by times (though can tease quite a bit as well ...  8) ...luckily I'm used to that)

Kitty, many thanks to you for the wonderful review of your meeting!
Your description of exibitions is exiting. I suppose it was forbidden to make pictures in museum. But if you have a couple of photos notwithstanding, I would like to see them :oops:
In general, I am very glad for you both! I like the photos an d the videos very much. They gave me a piece of good mood ))

thank you Diana :) happy you liked it that much and that we could share our happiness a bit :) ... unfortunately I indeed wasn't allowed to make pictures in most of the museums and when I completely forgot about it  :oops: ... I think Melissa has a couple of the entrance of the Museum of fine arts in Antwerp and perhaps also from gravensteen inside :)

It's funny for me to reach such things about Belgium ... but I suppose that's normal ... the grass always seems greener on the other side :) ... though I do admit that Gent is very charming, even more in summer cause there's more crowds, students studying everywhere around the bridges and  such ... but as I said I re-discovered Belgium to some extent myself :)
thanks for your comment :)

That is pretty common, we people are just too accustomed to our permament environment. That`s ok)) Certainly the variety of the visual facets builds beauty of our world.

Post by: Eve on May 14, 2011, 18:42:44
Hallo guys!! I`d like to share some pictures and impressions from my Germany-Switzerland-France trip, and therefore (yes!) to advertise some interesting places))) Well, that`s good in bus-trips, you can have a glance of many places at time and then you know which of them enchanted you best and which you want to revisit.
It all began with Munich. And what you can see here is its city hall. Because of the lack of time we didn`t climb famous 100 m high towers of Frauenkirche, but the very city center offers you a nice view.

(http://radikal.ua/data/upload/c2184/4efc3/cb6e629704.jpg) (http://radikal.ua)
(http://radikal.ua/data/upload/0fccf/c2184/d643ccdc18.jpg) (http://radikal.ua)
And this.. Well, you see yourselves:-)) Pretty tasty.. and besides there was a delicious soup))
(http://radikal.ua/data/upload/04012/4efc3/406caaf19b.jpg) (http://radikal.ua)
Then it was turn of the Bayern Alps and I`ve fallen in love with a charming village Oberammergau. All the houses are beautifully painted there, many Bible scenes are depicted and this surrounded by mountains place lets you feel like a fairy-tale (yes, exactly here it was an advertising:-) )
(http://radikal.ua/data/upload/69fda/49112/2238f99d42.jpg) (http://radikal.ua)
(http://radikal.ua/data/upload/49112/4fa6c/c6d5137b16.jpg) (http://radikal.ua)
(http://radikal.ua/data/upload/c2184/05615/6cb02bcf20.jpg) (http://radikal.ua)
Neuschwanstein also was not to ignore, but as striking the out image of the castle is, as tasteless is its interior. A peculiar man was actually Ludwig II, not from this world obviously.. There`s a film about him, it`s called also "Ludwig" - for everyone who wants "to get acquainted" with this strange king))
(http://radikal.ua/data/upload/69fda/0fccf/ef262ea1b3.jpg) (http://radikal.ua)

Then - hurra! it came to Switzerland, I`d never been there before and it was twice as interesting for me. We made our way into the italian part of the country - in the town Bellinzona famous for its castles. I was supposed to be at a loss there for they speak nothing but Italian there..
These jags of the castlewall looking like those ones of the Moscow Kremlin have to do with it - for the architect was the same.
(http://radikal.ua/data/upload/ba193/0fccf/41d7ae6954.jpg) (http://radikal.ua)
(http://radikal.ua/data/upload/ba193/4efc3/9624df805e.jpg) (http://radikal.ua)

Such a quick look into for a long time cherished Switzerland and we "landed" in France. I adore this country, it brings me serenity when I`m here and this time I got to know Côte d`Azur and Provence. First it was Monaco, but I should confess I soon got bored among palms and shops of Monte-Carlo. I mean there aren`t any remarkable sights there except of the Casion and Prince`s Palace. But the sea, ships plants and flowers are marvellous.

(http://radikal.ua/data/upload/49112/c2184/67189384e7.jpg) (http://radikal.ua)

Some views of some french cities
"Auf einem Fest vielleicht in Cannes" (as well as Monaco - palms, sand, shops.. But how I`d like there back now - guess why:-) right, `cos I`m a cinema-fiend)
(http://radikal.ua/data/upload/c2184/05615/dd6cbbc410.jpg) (http://radikal.ua)
Nice - also very sweet
(http://radikal.ua/data/upload/04012/4efc3/c41f5a4de8.jpg) (http://radikal.ua)
Marseille. Historical place, A. Dumas` "The Count of Monte-Cristo" is my most-most favourite book, I was walking along the embankment and practically expecting to meet the characters:-)
(http://radikal.ua/data/upload/fb1a9/4fa6c/54eb9a5b63.jpg) (http://radikal.ua)

Avignon wasn`t planned at first, but was a present of our guide. And here I was completely shocked (apart of the beauty of the city) - what do they want to tell us with this elephant of extraterrestrial ancestry?? Actually, many swiss and french places as I saw abound with such awkward sculptures, but this elephant in front of the church is a champion among them.
(http://radikal.ua/data/upload/0fccf/05615/395af90eba.jpg) (http://radikal.ua)

Then we returned to Switzerland.
Here beautiful Lake Geneva...
(http://radikal.ua/data/upload/6895e/49112/dca6f60138.jpg) (http://radikal.ua)
(http://radikal.ua/data/upload/4efc3/69fda/42f84e6e17.jpg) (http://radikal.ua)
(http://radikal.ua/data/upload/c2184/49112/bdaef59809.jpg) (http://radikal.ua)

The final in Switzerland was Bern, so dolly-looking town! It was just half deserted, we hardly met people in the street, and it`s a capital! The only thing made me sad was that I didn`t buy anything to keep in the memory about the city and the country, for all the souvenirs-shops were already closed when we arrived and now my fridge misses a lot a magnet with Bern.

(http://radikal.ua/data/upload/ba193/fb1a9/c351819313.jpg) (http://radikal.ua)

(http://radikal.ua/data/upload/04012/ba193/a6af536b6e.jpg) (http://radikal.ua)
I can`t but show you these Bern bears, they`re so cute!
(http://radikal.ua/data/upload/6895e/6895e/301447e7af.jpg) (http://radikal.ua)

The last destination was Baden-Baden in Germany. Very "russian" town to tell the truth:-)
(http://radikal.ua/data/upload/6895e/4efc3/4b2bd92bb3.jpg) (http://radikal.ua)

Should say that I was tearing myself apart between the three countries, I mean when I was in one I missed the others.

Beautiful places you've seen Eve :) really beautiful ... some of them are on my to do list still as well :) thanks for giving me a glance of them already :)

As for Monaco, I've been there myself and it's one of the French cities that stole my heart, because of as you mentioned its marvellous sea... I remember that we took quite a big break around the sea area and I just couldn't get my eyes away from the rather stormy water (despite the fact it was amazing good weather with over 30 degrees when we were there) ... furthermore I think Nice is more beautiful when it comes to architecture and such, the old citypart of Nice is also very very cosy in my opinion.  :)

Thanks for sharing!

I've never been to France, Switzerland, or Germany... And I've never been on a trip through several countries at once! I guess it was not easy, because for me it was quite tiring even to trip through one country. But I can imagine how many impression you brought home afterwards!..
Now after your pics I understood that I haven't been in a trip abroad for so long... And I'd like to visit at least some of these places that you showed us ;)

On Friday my groupmates and I, we went on an excursion to Baturyn, the city in the northern part of Ukraine (Chernihiv region). It was organized by our uni with the help of our lecturer (we're all so thankful to him!). We had a great time there and that's why I want to show you some pictures taken there:

The palace of Kyrylo Rozumovs'kyj, the last Hetman (ruler) of Ukraine

The ceilings of the palace - each one is unique ^^:

So time for an update of pictures :) when there were the rainy days I didn't take much pictures... why capturing grey weather right ;) but today was a sunny day and I took the chance to picture Gent with my new camera :) this is the result:

The old party of the city where the cathedrals and churches are to be found:

(http://a8.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc6/267734_2154528738931_1117825135_32567166_7280602_n.jpg)

The first thing I wanted to show Klodi was the place the Lacrimosa concert took place 2009: Vooruit ... pity that you can't get in at any time of the day cause the inside is quite beautiful as well ... but well, the surrounding is lovely as well :)

(http://a8.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc6/284155_2154530178967_1117825135_32567172_7400299_n.jpg)

this is the small alley from which the noises from rehearsals came
(http://a1.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/269773_2154531298995_1117825135_32567177_1583087_n.jpg)
where Joey and me waited for the concert back then

Idyllic Gent:

Durbuy is the smallest town of Belgium by the way.

I agree on spiders...I just took them because I know Misha has a pet and I thought of him right away but otherwise I'd just say "eeeks" and run the other way  :lol: As for the lizard, I was quite afraid of it myself up to the point where I helped it getting back in its cage there I realised how helpless it can feel just like every other animal and how grateful it took my arm to be lifted over the glass... I'm not afraid of it anymore I think ... although I was more afraid of the one in the cage than outside the cage...while helping that one the other one was looking for a way out of the cage and somehow I didn't feel very comfy in its surrounding :s

So, now I finally bought a card-reader for the memory card of my camera and now I can share some impressions with you about my trip :)

On our flight to Munich mom and I already noticed one strange thing – the clouds were shaped like straight rows. “Truly German order” - we thought XD
(http://s49.radikal.ru/i126/1110/ac/dcc4131d98fe.jpg)

Then was Munich… Wonderful city! I don’t know, I just felt good there. Really beautiful!
Here are some photos of the amazing city!
(http://s50.radikal.ru/i129/1110/f0/4ec3d2afab35.jpg)
(http://s017.radikal.ru/i400/1110/3e/dcff54736070.jpg)
(http://s017.radikal.ru/i417/1110/4d/7f741afe1b51.jpg)

We really enjoyed our Munich walks…

And here is the Nymphenburg… It has beautiful gardens, we had a brief (pity that just a brief) visit there, and everywhere there were swans swimming in the ponds and geese (I think) walking on the pathways, not afraid of the visitors at all.
(http://s017.radikal.ru/i410/1110/e7/8af084106e74.jpg)
(http://s017.radikal.ru/i412/1110/95/2c848fa8f499.jpg)
(http://s015.radikal.ru/i332/1110/5b/8e11f5839c94.jpg)

And then the famous Neuschwanstein… It took us a whole day – plus we had several stops on the road, for example to watch picturesque Alpine lakes, a German village Oberammergau… And the day was entirely worth it! Neuschwanstein is really something outstanding and it is not a wonder that there are crowds of tourists there. I was very intrigued by the personality of the king who built it, Ludwig II… I got a book about him.
Neuschwanstein – I don’t have proper pics, I couldn’t manage to find a place where I can take a pic of entire castle. But here are some.
(http://i017.radikal.ru/1110/f0/69c129c4c271.jpg)
(http://s017.radikal.ru/i406/1110/37/f1a3a1cfb545.jpg)

And here is one of the views from the castle. It is a tiny bridge between two cliffs… you can see tourists here, I was there too, and it was REALLY scary. :lol: it’s made of wood, and there are clinks between the wooden planks… and down there a great hight… OMG! I was just frozen from fear.
(http://s017.radikal.ru/i439/1110/30/a2b64db1b090.jpg)

Here is one of the numerous souvenir shops, remarkable for the huge black cat lying before it :D A real on of course. When I came really near it didn’t even turned the head, took no notice XD
(http://s55.radikal.ru/i147/1110/9d/dcec24731189.jpg)

And here are the lovely Alpine lakes!
 (http://i066.radikal.ru/1110/39/4e2d19d038f8.jpg)
 (http://s57.radikal.ru/i156/1110/1f/a5eb9dd2afad.jpg)

By the way, we were very lucky with the weather, it was very sunny till Vienna, people told us it is quite unusual for this season.

We took a look at the village Oberammergau, it is just charming, with lovely different shops, for example Christmas shops and woodcraft shops. Many houses are painted!
(http://s017.radikal.ru/i444/1110/e0/23a4a0dd5315.jpg)

After Munich we went to Salzburg, the city of Mozart. The big plus of this city: the river Salzach! Because it makes it harder to get lost. You just have to find the river and everything gets clearer! We visited the fortress above the city on the high hill, The panorama from there is magnificent!
 (http://s017.radikal.ru/i413/1110/84/f1888941a4ce.jpg)

And in the courtyard of the fortress there is such a huge tree…
 (http://s53.radikal.ru/i139/1110/29/974380b3aa7d.jpg)

And of course the famous Mozartkugel! The truest ones are the silver-blue! And the golden-red are licensed, but not the original ones. You can buy the silver-blue ones only in the Fürst shop and café. We tasted both, and decided that all of them are tasty, but the taste of silver-blue ones is richer somehow.
(http://s017.radikal.ru/i411/1110/27/f997e5ceb8db.jpg)

And then was Vienna… I noticed that people who live there are really proud of the city, and it’s easy to see why. Many, many museums, palaces, etc… Prater with its Ferris wheel, Schönbrun with its zoo, just cannot enumerate everything.
 (http://s017.radikal.ru/i428/1110/9e/034038251ed3.jpg)

We went to the great Schönbrunn zoo for two days, because one was not enough for us to watch everything. It is an outstanding zoo for me, because the animals’ enclosures are very well thought-over and it seems to me that animals feel good there.
And in the park near the zoo the squirrels are totally not afraid of humans and can easily come down to earth near you to find a nut in the grass.
 (http://s53.radikal.ru/i142/1110/dd/28c62512a198.jpg)

And in the zoo a peacock can easily cross your road…
 (http://s54.radikal.ru/i143/1110/30/8ba901817f49.jpg)

And a couple of pics of the animals!
 (http://s017.radikal.ru/i428/1110/fa/d725c8ea3871.jpg)
 (http://s41.radikal.ru/i094/1110/d6/7335a16e3948.jpg)

We had a drive through Wienerwald then. We saw the castle of Lichtenstein, this family later got its own small state.
(http://s017.radikal.ru/i417/1110/c7/1f9250140dec.jpg)

And then we were shown the Seegrotte - the caves (former mines) with its biggest underground lake of Europe. We even took a journey by boat there! The pics are not really good due to poor light there, so believe me, it looked a lot better in real. We came out just speechless.
(http://s017.radikal.ru/i412/1110/81/963af3679f79.jpg)
(http://s46.radikal.ru/i113/1110/33/fcc0310bde2b.jpg)

And here is a courtyard of the monastery Heiligenkreuz… Isn’t it magnificent?
 (http://s40.radikal.ru/i088/1110/44/e826da7f0c22.jpg)

In short - a lot of positive impressions, amazing places but too few time to watch all!

I have tons of pics, I tried to pic only a few for the forum, but it’s very hard to choose… :D

Post by: Kitty on October 29, 2011, 19:47:39
Lovely places you saw!!! I wanna see Salzburg as well :D I'll probably join the trip with the student-organisation here if it's on a moment I'm free that is otherwise I'll arange a trip myself...your pics convinced me :D...
And vienna...ah dear Vienna :) ... they have all reason to be proud of their city I think ;) ... I heard though, recently, from a girl that lives here and used to study in Vienna that the people are rather racists overthere, she encountered it herself, a professor forbade her to study on so she had to move here... I was stunned, because I didn't notice that at all when I was there myself...maybe the beauty of the city blinded me too much to see the behaviour of the people (though I encountered them as very open and friendly...donno about you?)

And as for the weather, you probably had great weather here in Austria as well ... we had in a any case, though we were under influence of Föhn, so were spoiled with sparkle clear weather with a lot of sunshine and abnormal high temperatures of 18 degrees and more... though people here also claim it's not normal for the time of the year, they do say that whenever Föhn is around, it's warm and bright weather.

Pity that we didn't manage to meet up ... silly of me to not having answered your e-mail earlier, am very sorry about that! Nonetheless am happy to see you had an awesome time abroad :) and am happy your came home safely and with a lot of great memories ^^

I am glad that you liked my pics, friends :)

Kitty, yes, I am sorry we didn't meet too, it was also because I had no proper access to internet there... well, till next time.
About people there - no, I didn't notice any bad attitude towards me. Well, in fact I didn't communicate closely with Austrians - too little time for that, but we had a guide who is also a Russian but who is living in Vienna for 12 years or so already. We asked him exactly that question - about the attitude of natives to him. He told us that everything is ok for him, and that only the "less educated" people can have some kind of this attitude. He is already settled, working and continues to study as well. So this guy is very pleased with living in Austria.

yeah, exactly the attitude I sensed here as well, also towards me (as I'm an Ausländer now myself as well as they call them here)... I find them so helpful and understanding and ok with the situation. Strange, maybe she just met the wrong people, moreover she will have had her reasons for studying there for so long as well... I mean I wouldn't in a place where I feel a stranger for longer time. And that with the less educated is the same with us in Belgium.

Next time we'll manage for sure :) somehow ;)

Julia, lovely pictures, Munich is great, you must have an enjoyable time there. And I'm sure you've seen more than I have ever seen - my trips were either with school - so more partylike - or because of a job interview with less time :D Anytime I will follow :)


Last weekend I was in Italy - second time this year - but this time not for beach holiday but alone to visit my best friend who is there for studying a half a year. Thursday and Friday we went out to have a great time, was really cool of course.

At Saturday we were in the city, Padova btw, and I had my first mulled wine :) Really nice city!

(http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/big/bs69-7v-db8e.jpg)

At Sunday we finally visited Venice... such a great and awesome city! I've never seen something like that before - everything, really everything is by boot, that's so cool :D Unfortunately it rained like hell, I was afraid that my umbrella will broken, such a strong rain. But was somehow funny too, although we were suddenly lost in the alleyways :D

All in all a very great trip, though I had to go by train over 16 hours, but it was worth it :) More photos will follow when my friend will send me those, I had no camera with me.

Post by: Kitty on November 11, 2011, 20:59:37
:) already looking forward to more pictures Jennl :D (to use the Austrian Dialect)

I made a trip to the Neuschwanstein castle today with my parents :) I must say I was really pleasantly surprised by its beauty and it's really as impressive as many people claim it is... we were a bit unlucky because the fog destroyed our view in the surrounding (not to say took it away completely actually) but nonetheless we enjoyed it very much.

A castle full of themes around Wagner's music ... ADORABLE! I didn't know up until I took the guide through the castle... but the inside is at least as impressive as the outside, if not even more... the paintings on the wall...and MY GOOOOOOD what an adooooooorable stage in the ballroom (or how it was called the last finished room of the castle...as it was never completely finished...) ... WHAT A STAAAAAGE!!!
Anyways :) a must to see if you ever get the chance...take that chance really :) (wasn't allowed to take pictures inside)

Neuschwanstein :D so fresh memories... fairy tale-like, yeah... somehow unreal.

And the second castle I remember too, we have seen it only from afar though...

@Kitty

yeah, longed to see it for quite some time already as well :) I thought I'd never see it in my life untill my friend here told me it's not so very far away by car...some 2 hours or something we did (and that was also because we had a lot of fog on the way there so dad couldn't drive the normal speed) ... in any case a must I think :)

Elena thanks *blush* I'm happy to share with you and am happy when some of the atmosphere came across :)

Julia Yeah unreal indeed, I had the feeling I entered a fairy tale the moment I went the road up to the castle by foot, it was like a new world :) couldn't stop watching around. The bridge was indeed quite scary I didn't dare to go further than half of it, because a man started dancing on it  :lol:  :lol: and scared the hell out of me because the bridge seemed to start dancing along with him...otherwise we would have walked in the forest on the other side, but with the fog ... and my mother was waiting downstairs already with the dog. We haven't seen the other castle close neither because we had our dog with us and you can't (logically) take him with you inside but I found it so unfair to let someone wait twice so :) My dad had the time of his life I think  :lol:  :lol: he had an excuse not to go inside now because of the dog...but since I only had them with me for 6 days...I wanted to enjoy every minute of it together :) Did you like that stage so much as well? I found it soooooo impressive :-o I still tell it to everybody who wants to hear it :lol:  :oops:

Jenny thanks :) If you ever have the chance do go... it's a bit hectic to reach it with public transport (at least from Innsbruck that is) but in any case worth a longer travel :)

I think it would be interesting to see this castle in fog... because on the day of my visit it was sunny, it is good of course, but next time I actually wouldn't mind fog - it brings another atmosphere, even more surreal as I imagine...
And we never crossed that bridge as well! I stepped just a few meters, and then we turned back - we were not going to the other side anyway, we came there to for that beautiful sight...
The stage is impressive, yeah - but I cannot tell what from the interior of the castle I like the most - this, or the bedroom with that gothic bed, or maybe the balcony with amazing sight of the cliffs...
what a memories :)

mmm :) yes, we missed that beautiful sight :D I think it's indeed something to see it in both ways, so I hope next time I see it it'll be sunny xD ...
Ah yes, that bed was soooooo impressive with the how many gothic church constructions were it on top of it... amazing... though to me (maybe that's just because nowadays it's a museum and not a place where people live) it seemed a bit cold, I for some reason couldn't imagine someone ever slept there.
The phone was cute xD the guide told us about that before we passed it and I had a totally wrong image in my head  :lol: it reminded me of those "phones" I created with my niece when we were kids.
But I wouldn't want to be a servant there...sooooo many stairs!!  :lol:  :lol:  :lol:

Finally I found some time to sort the photos from my trip to Crete island. As I promised to Melissa to bring some pics... ;)

So, here we go!
First, this is the amazing nature among which we were living! It was like a fairytale, and it's such a pity that a photo cannot capture all the voices of the birds that were singing there!

(http://i032.radikal.ru/1207/05/436eac14b2be.jpg)


And the sea of course! Although it was a bit stormy for some days, but still it was so amazing to watch sunsets on the beach!

(http://s018.radikal.ru/i511/1207/0f/3fd4f62dbabf.jpg)


By the way, the island that you can see in the distance is called the Dragon island. It looks like a lying dragon ;) (There is a legend about  dragon who was turned to stone...)

(http://s017.radikal.ru/i422/1207/ba/0cabb1f2f41f.jpg)


And now some interesting places that we've visited.

The Kourtaliotiko Gorge. I have very few photos of it, because while we were descending into it by the open staircase that was made right on the side of the rocky wall, we were almost blown off by the horrible winds. There are always winds in the gorge, but this day they were especially strong... I am not exaggerating, I had to cling to the wall all the time or I would be blown off ;D It was difficult to go even to the men who were much heavier than I. But the sight that we saw down there... It was worth it, simply breathtaking!

(http://s017.radikal.ru/i436/1207/56/802e87823035.jpg)


And of course we have visited Knossos, the palace of Minos. It is connected with the famous myth about Minotaur and the Labirynth. These are the pics of the archaeological excavations of the palace of Minos.

(http://s51.radikal.ru/i133/1207/ca/5494d0278f51.jpg)


And the horns - the symbol of very ancient Minoan civilization. (It was their city, of course.)

(http://s008.radikal.ru/i305/1207/3a/0754d3f6a909.jpg)


We also visited The Lasithi plateau, because of the Dictaean cave, where Zeus was born, by the legend. First we had to climb up by the road that was going up the mountain. Here is the landscape of the Lasithi, view from the mountain.

(http://s017.radikal.ru/i422/1207/d7/e682041686ca.jpg)


The cave was magnificent, but it was not allowed to use flashes there, so I have only pics of entrances, and other pics were not of a very good quality.

(http://s017.radikal.ru/i402/1207/b5/69929a844e05.jpg)

The winding staircases in the cave. Surrealistic, isn't it?

About birds, i understand totally how this is an important part of the atmosphere... singing birds in Paris are the main beauty that you can find even in the middle of the city! so in the middle of outstanding nature, i guess it is just perfection :D again, thank you so much for sharing :D and especially you're a hero for taking pics even in high stone stairs and dark caves ;D well done! ^^

Seaside... and here in Moscow it's already a bit too cold to think about swimming XD lucky you! :)
Title: Antw:Trips
Post by: Kitty on September 03, 2012, 07:26:50
Thanks people :)

Julia to me it was a bit too cold to swim there as well :D was just enough by having my feet wet and then warm up in the sun... but children are a bit more resistent against cold I guess donno... on top I was/am falling ill so I guess that could have been the reason for me having cold. Is  it that cold already in Moscow? Here it was around 26 degrees but a very heavy wind which made it feel colder than it actually was just nearby the sea, once in the centre though you could melt :D

in Moscow it's already below 20 degrees, for many days. Jumping somewhere inbetween 10 and 20 degrees ;) and rainy...
I am not really resistant to cold XD maybe Russian climate is not very suitable for me, haha

Nice pictures, Kitty! I love the sea!


I always think that there in the north of europe the sea is always cold... and reading that there's between 10 and 20 in summer feels so weird! Brrrr!
Title: Antw:Trips
Post by: Kitty on September 03, 2012, 17:21:51
Julia poor you  :( winter already showed up?

Hanajash thanks :) as for the cold ... it's not so cold ... even at the seaside it can grow warm :) the only problem is that when there's a strong northern Wind it can be 30 degrees and still feeling cold but now it was really cool 26 degrees is just fine to sit at the beach but to swim it was too cold for me as the above mentioned wind was present ... temperatures are quite different here from elsewhere I noticed more than once... when it's 30 degrees here it feels like 40 in like for example Croatia (as that's a reference I have since a couple of years ago :D) or like 30 degrees here feels much more destructive than in the South of France :D (but that's my subjective opinion of course) maybe I'm just not so used of hot temperatures as most of the time it's between 20 and 30 here in summer. (or it never turns summer and we remain with less than 20, which has also been the case in the past)

Well, yes, they way we feel the weather is always subjective: some people think that 16 degrees is wonderfull, while others may think that is freezing! And more if there's wind.
I think the problem here is the humid weather. You feel all the time that you're melting. And in winter (we don't even have negative numbers, it's always above 0), we feel the cold in our bones...

So here I am again :) with my trip to Vienna of last week.

First of all I wanna introduce you to my new friend I made :) mr. Squirrel crossed my path on Monday when I was walking with a friend through the little would nearby Schloss Schönbrunn :)

(https://fbcdn-sphotos-h-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-prn1/62038_4298540417883_1050526938_n.jpg)

I arrived Vienna early in the morning, I had a hectic night behind me and was happy that I didn’t have to find my way through the airport that changed so much that I felt the chaos ruining my head. My dear friend I met in Innsbruck in the dorm, you see all things have a positive side, picked me up at the airport and wanted to drop me off at the hotel…but that plan didn’t work as my room would first be ready from 3pm. Nice. Well actually nice cause that’s been my savior on Wednesdaymorning. Anyways she took me along to her parents home then as she said “your eyes are so blurred, you need sleep Kitty.” I wasn’t feeling too well, she was pretty right, eventhough the flying went without problem this time. At her place I asked her for a coffee first by that time it was already noon, met her father and sister and her cutest nephew :) but halfway the coffee her look became more and more concerned so that I gave in eventually and thanked her sister thousands of times for offering me her bed. I slept two hours after which she apparently tried to wake me up but failed. When I woke up it was around half past 3 then and I still couldn’t see out of my eyes so that she ordered me to get to my hotel right away and get early to bed…well first worked out the latter didn’t. I listened music, read my book, watched television and such things relax. Then I got to bed eventually and fell asleep like a … well typical sleeping animal.

Monday I didn’t put my alarm, wanted to sleep as long as my body and soul needed to recover from the sleepless night. Eventually it turned out 9 and I got ready to go. Visited the historical museum of nature in Vienna and afterwards me and my friend met up again and went to the castle of Sissy Schloss Schönbrunn; my friend guided me there and had prepared entire history of Sissy, rather sad life she knew. Where we met some nice sweet little squirrels. We talked about a lot of things before I eventually started about my nerves for Tuesday. She managed to calm me down and to scare away my fears but nonetheless. I decided not to be alone for too long that evening, know myself too well. So I took her offer to come over at her place and chat around a bit, I let her listen to some songs of mine as she ordered me too, hehehe…  Then her friend was so sweet to bring me to the hotel, which spared me a long travel with public transport. I went to bed…and although I was tired as hell I couldn’t find sleep. Well I could, three hours, then I woke up… and woke up again…and couldn’t fall asleep anymore and …. Yes all in all I think I slept 4 hours. Insomnia strikes always then when it doesn’t have to.

Tuesday. D-Day. I didn’t get up too early seeing the horrible night. Then I got on my way when Klodi said she ordered a taxi. I didn’t really know how long it was going to take me on foot from the hotel, we agreed on meeting at the concerthall and move from there seeing it was a spot we both knew. googlemaps told me it would take 16 minutes, it took me about 12 I think. Klodi wasn’t there yet, exchanged sms’s  and refused to get even near Szene before she got there out of fear that there would pop up a red car out of nowhere when I stood there… was too early for that and my brain too dead still. Anyways I saw Klodi’s taxi pass by and followed :) it was good to see her back and her sis. We then went to the park where we chatted a bit and where I specially wondered why on earth I couldn’t have gotten some more sleep. I would have slept in staying if I could. Then I think Klo’s sis had to go to the toilet… we two ladies who know the way around there :D  knew at the gasstation you could go to the toilet so we did. It takes time, three women who need to pee :D Far away we saw Karin walking with Yenz…  So Klodi went to get Karin. And then we went to a caffee to kill time. Minutes never took longer in my entire life I think. Slowly it turned towards half past five, we actually first said we’ll go at five but her sis was well… If you were there you’d have been happy to go out hahaha… so we went there and then sat down and waited and waited.   Anyways we waited longer more people were coming but not exaggerated many. Close to 7 we all at once got to know from a guy standing there that doors were half past 7 not 7 hahaha…WHAT???! I thought I was driving mad. I really realized that my patience isn’t endless. The doors to the concerthall for musicians squeeched and with each squeech my heart jumped insanely cause … what if he passes there…  eventually he did but I only saw the back of his shoe. We went in but then had to wait on another door… beginning 20.45 … 20.15 still in front of that fucking door, I thought I was gonna lose it. And from aaaaall doors, the one we stood in front didn’t open… waiting fucking 3 hours and a bit to then lose the front position? Uh… but we made it eventually. Inside the waiting didn’t take long which was a huge relief. And honestly, once the intro starts time stops and every little thing you were irritated about before leaves. The musicians entering stage is always a magical moment and when eventually Tilo enters stage … it feels complete.
First song Revolution, after that he started talking and again the thought crosses my mind that even speaking he sings. During Tränen der Sehnsucht I was a bit perplex… I forgot a bit that there was this awesome guitarsolo in it and that Henrik jumped on the box in front of me was out of all my expectations! It was awesome to finally see him use that awefully awesome guitar and giving all that layed within his power to produce the most angelic sounds possible.Break… special… possibility to meet up and get autograms…go out? Kitty? Go out? No… I’d feel very uncomfortable to take the chances of others away so I stay in. So the second half started with Refugium and I could press back the tears but my heart was shattered, then Ich Verlasse came and I was like … help?anyone? I couldn’t  look at anyone,  I just stared I think trying not to break down in tears like I do at home so often.  These two opened my senses so wide that I experienced am Ende stehen wir zwei like never before. And as we could have a sneakpeak on the setlist already I recalled that I had thought “then I’ll have break to gather myself back together” with “Weil du hilfe brauchst” … he came up with a story, a message that created even more chaos inside of me. And that’s how it continued with a very intensive emotional show but at the same time a party like you never experience elsewhere. When the music stopped. The people where breaking the building down I think, It took a lot of time to get the band back in hahaha my voice was ruined I think. But it’s always nice to experience it actually… the interaction between the different people present and how you built it back up with one scream :D I love it! And then they came back and I was delighted. When they then went it was sad as always … but I was grateful for having got 3 hours of their precious time. After the concert I always have this big relaxing feeling a bomb could explode I wouldn’t hear it…

Is it sad I find skunks more cute? They are so puffy and waddle when walking yet so lethal. >.< I saw one the other night having a play flight with my favorite cat in my neighborhood. I guess my neighbors let their cat roam outside and I was scared for it at first in case it got sprayed.

You're welcome :) happy you liked them! And yeah, Vienna is indeed very very beautiful :) am grateful that I could see it once more now. And the squirrels where the cutest I ever saw...I never saw it from that close as a matter of fact, here in Belgium they're rather afraid of human beings and try to get out as soon as possible without even being seen if they can :) so the more delighted I was to find this little fellow on my road that didn't fear me and my friend but even dared us in a way I was too perplex to shoot a picture at first hahaha :D

thank you very much dear friends! and indeed it is a paradise definitely obligatory to visit! (they also have a place on this island called Paradisi where the airport is located now) and the weather - starting summer it is sunny all the time, we had one huge 1-hour rain which was very beautiful & pleasant and like a breath of fresh air, after it the sun started to burn again ))) and by the way i like interesting places with rich history, Greece is for sure one of them! i need several vacations to discover entire Greece, 2 weeks is too short time ever for one Rhodes :D

And it is Orthodox Cathedral... don't know how exactly it will be in English... It is the main Cathedral of faith in Russia. I often go there, although belong to another faith, but we have no such Church...

(http://im2-tub-ru.yandex.net/i?id=290311053-64-72&n=21)

And this is the Church of St. Nicholas. It is built of wood. I sometimes have to go there too, but I didn't really like, there's power was not very good for me.

I came back from vacation yesterday and I've decided to share some photos. I've got a lot more on my hard drive, a little more on fb page (for those of you that added me there) so I chose only my favourites :) I spent a great week in Pieniny National Park with my best friend from studies. On our way back while waiting for a train in Cracow we also hang out in the city as my friend has never been there before and I just had to show her some places :P
