Sunday 5:14 am – Part I
Since 4:14 back to train traveling – three stops to go. Approximated arrival at 8.12 am – if I get every single train right. Thank God to credit cards I could book all the tickets on the phone. Still Oebb is a complete disaster. I am sitting on the floor… in my Burberry Steadman Jeans – don’t they have any respect for high fashion?! S picked me up at the train station at 8.00 pm sharp and we went to his flat so I can take a shower and dress up in a whole new outfit (which is exactly the one I talked about above) and then he showed me the core of his city of studying and we got a few drinks (for me some double martinis with ice and a half slice of lemon) and then got back to his flat to get my stuff and get back to the train station. The fucking train should have actually arrived at 3:40 but hat a 34 minutes delay and therefore we waited over one hour to get he traveling Burberry back to traveling.
Outside it is raining as the train rushes through the station to the next stop – my first train change of three in the next upcoming three hours. At least I look good.
Burberry pieces of the moment – Trench colored Polo Shirt with the classic check on the collar and my Steadman Jeans – avec an Armani Belt and a Prada sleeve… and my black hot Dominici shoes. Good outfit for traveling. I feel confident. I am the guy in the traveling Burberry.
Hit of the moment: Bulletproof – La Roux – this track is so keeping me awake… everyone is sleeping and I am silently shaking myself into another dimension – who ever said sleeping is necessary is a liar, with the right tune and the right attitude your body handles any condition!
Update: 6:27 am
First stop successfully done. Train arrived too late but follow up train arrived late too – well, who ever said the oebb isn’t on time was right but at least no train is. Sun is shining slightly so I added a pair of Gucci shades to my outfit. Looks good, of course. I wonder if Burberry and Gucci are actual competitors or if they place themselves on different target markets and groups. Does anybody know anything about it?
Update: 7:06 am
Second stop successfully done. After my martinis, one beer, three coffees and two red bull I am actually not tired for I met people to talk to while being on this journey. But this stop was their end so I am on my own again. Still wearing the Burberry and my heavy trunk and a big brown bag – my MacBook feels heavier minute after minute. I should think about purchasing a MacBook Air for traveling issues.
Update: 7:26 am
Thank God the last train stop is done successfully too. I am in the last train to the scheduled meeting point and though two heavy delays I am perfectly on time. Just a little bit to go… ‘don’t get tired… don’t fall asleep… listen to the music and keep on moving a bit’ … I keep telling myself off the hook and it works.
8:12 am Ueberlingen, Germany. K and her boyfriend W pick me up from the train station – perfectly on time. We buy a small breakfast and then we fill the last few spaces left in the car with my luggage and my somewhat tired body. In the car I fell asleep for one hour and then I suddenly feel good and fine and not tired at all and I think – that is maybe just a trick my body plays because of my little power nap. Nevertheless, I welcome the fact of not being tired and we drive the last kilometers to my hotel to check in to room number 5 (a really pretty room I have to say and I feel a little bit like Carrie sitting here all wrapped up in my Burberry scarf and typing some of these lines – all the others are real time notes taken down on my iPhone or my MacBook while traveling in order to give you a little insight on my mental and physical condition) and then we are off to Europe Park.
Sunday: 9.37 pm – Part II
Europe Park was one of the most funny places I have ever been. Tomorrow we will be back there but now I think I will get myself to watch a dvd and to finally embrace a very comfortable bed and an even more comfortable sleep. K and W are staying at a near camping place because they love to camp. Well, I don’t. I never sleep on the floor… that is hardly an option. Never. K is done… finished… and tired – not done in a good way like being done by her beloved W the whole night through but like done because of a long day with a ridiculously switching weather and a tight schedule of riding every attraction with W and me. Burberry piece of the moment – just a Burberry scarf I am wrapped up in.
P.S. Knowledge of the Day – even I seem to be getting excited about some things like kids do. Nice to know. XO
