this speaks to my heart
My static blog was keeeeeling me. Plus, I have a couple things to do that I “can’t” from winding down after work so one hand blames the other. I feel like if I personal blog, me-blog, like “I’m in trubs” because I did something but not the priority things. But maybe I need to personal blog to open up the creative flood gates and make way for the to do. Which I can’t quit whining about. I think after jet lag then confronting post vacay blues, emo acceptance and thrust into moving stress as well as back to work getting into the groove of (which am happy to report: all is good there) I needed to just, do those things. Period.
I uploaded 500 photos from abroad like a mad man and it’s starting to give me Obsessive Compulsive Disorder anxiety and worry “I will forget” #neverforget.
So here are photos from my last night, in Germany, the night before I left. My last supper. At a Deutschland potato place. Don’t get me started on the food. It’s really good, I will just leave it at that. BORINGLY that. Hee.
Imagine Yogurt with a J. It is real. Jogurt. It’s cute.
Hispanic prawn what? This is english provided menu, thank god. Reading German is like reading a made-up cartoon language on the care bears. I dunno. I know that’s really ignorant, but words are just SO LONG.
I had Fanta vodka. YOLO
Those are good signs for British people.
You’re kidding me. Love it.
The tables were covered in papers, so many menus, we were sitting in wooden church pew-like booths and everything had that old classic look and feel to it. Authentasia.
The outside. We ran around lost for a long time getting colder and colder and finally I made us ask someone and then we found this place. It’s like finding a giganticer Yorkville, Distillery, Old Mtl, etc. BUT real deal Germania.
And you don’t understand a thing.
A yuppie told us to go here. His kinda place. Okaaay. linen service place. I guess it’s a compliment. It had more of a work drinks vibe to it.
Cuckoo clock shit like this everywhere. My favourite.
A lone man smoking here, I doubled back and took a photo of the lemons, the moment.
That’s the man there. Each tiny place was cookie cutter Paddington bear set in nature.
Took quite a bit to settle/decide on where to eat. This was a cafe that boasted, like, Timothys, but was really a restaurant, a proper one. I’m not a picky eater anymore, just selector. Because I hate being settled then realizing you’re in a hole or their menu is ridiculous. Food snob all the way forever more and nothing but. Deal with it.
Forgot to bring smokes, bf had to buy some here. They have cigarette machines everywhere here in abundance like the 70’s. 80’s. Super time warp.
Sure. A spot light behind a terra cotta Jesus’ biblical times water vase, cliche whatever have fun.
Okay that is good. It’s so nice there.
Lots of Gothic black roofs. It’s their thing. You can tell by the stripe in their flag.
Moving over to Holland, I discovered this particular favoured way of marketing this particular feature film. #interesting. and #goodluckwiththat does it work?
Speaking of Germany, had just gotten back from there this evening.
I left this coat for sister. She doesn’t know that yet.
What I had for Linner in Germany. I thought I ordered something more mexican but received gyro Greek. Okay then. I still love this place.
Huge burgers if Big Macs were flat and round like massive saucers.
Catching up on my local fashion cultures.
This was before NYE, we were like hmm what to do/want to do that but we are old. Still it was fun and exciting. I’m a big fan of “before” anticipation. I’m sure you love a pre-game too.
Classic retro repro posters hang everywhere, mirrors so you can spy on everything and person. We came in during a Vanilla sky sunset. Can’t forget the magic of Christmas ornaments donning everything everywhere.
That’s a festival bracelet. Tiny bolts are on the other side, stacked.
He explained this one to me but I forget. Go for it.
Dick Tracy lights.
Sith Lord what.
Jesus. Ballin’. I always do a good 2 avocados a week from the couch. Rock salt and lime guy.
My last Friday in Holland, went for a Fridate bender and that’s my beloved tree in the back yard and it was misting. Then my hat fell in a puddle. Hehaha.
Baha don’t ask. Bottom left is what gingerale looks like over there and it’s hard to find but has since been easier or they order more at our grocery store finally.
This is back in Holland now.
Yep I look stupid it is not just your imagination but maybe no game is my game.
I love this part of Holland.
I am tired now/need to move along. To be continued. Oh, I’m up for a travel category blog award now as well as life time achievement and life. ZZzz bye!
I know how that post trip depression and tiredness can go, but I am glad to hear you’re surviving and working on thriving again.
Runaway syndrome fur sure. Thanks man!
