The Tuesday update.

I will make this a quick why and as it technically Wednesday at 1:37 AM but I wanted to keep posting up-to-date.

Last night i.e. Monday night I didn’t sleep at all.

It was about 5 AM before I drifted off and tied it up getting out of bed at 11:30 AM. That’s not particularly good when you have a dog who is used to be walk arts a lot earlier than that.

To make matters worse I had a whole bucketload of paperwork to catch up on in the meantime as well especially with regards to signing on tomorrow well Wednesday.

I ended up meeting Sue this afternoon albeit a little bit later than advertised to fix her Apple Mac computer.

What turned out to be a simple password reset something a lot more complex than that. Long story short they have to reinstall everything and they have lost everything.

If they have a bit more patience maybe I can retrieve some of the documents they have on their but that’s entirely up to them.

Tonight I ended up in a pub called Mullins where I ended up chatting to an Irish bloke in a pub. I picked the wrong corner of the pub as sometimes you get the pubs like this where they have a guy who’s just willing to talk to anyone and to be honest it was nice to have some company towards the latter end of the evening.

Getting the train back to spam half was no problem at all and I even got a Donna in a box.

Yes that even same is more disgusting now I’ve written it down in Israelite but basically it is kebab meat, chips with some mayonnaise thrown in. Not bad snap for four-year rose but I know that I need to eat something healthy and soon.

So all in all a pretty uneventful day but the good thing is I did manage to find the route to the park without getting lost.

Also it’s apparently going to snow tomorrow which would be awesome. The weather here is strange, outside of the city it has been snowing something good and proper but in the middle of the city in Munich nothing at all. So far it hasn’t been overly windy but that is due to come in at the end of the week no has been overly cold if anything it’s been about four or 5° higher than back home.

 

I almost met my first friendly German today when I was at the pub this evening. I am with my chair Rover and he said thank you in German and I said you’re welcome in German but I am not entirely sure I got the pronunciation right.

Germans are very fickle about this.

Wednesday I have nothing planned and I am not entirely sure what to do with myself.

My ambition is to become an online gamer have been put on hold as I forgot to bring a year I would adapter for my laptop now normally this wouldn’t be such a problem but it’s my Windows laptop that I purposefully logged arranged with me for situations such as this

To isn’t it. Not sure what by day has planned for tomorrow but I think I am going to download some more German lessons and see if I can order a Coffey whilst out and about.

The first meal

That’s better. Food. Slept a good sleep on the plane and feel better for it. Guess I was doing the whole tongue hanging out thing as the steward didn’t wake me for food.

Worryingly my gums are swollen on both sides in my mouth. Hoping that some mouthwash will sort that out.

Putting off getting on the train at the moment. Just a bit scared to venturing into Munich if I do it becomes real.

So so tempted to see if there’s a flight home. Perhaps I could hire a car and drive Stella the dog back to the uk for a fortnight. Hell of a drive but at least I’d be home.

Whod had thought I would miss home. It’s cold and drqfty. My bed is damp all the time and get that’s where I want to be.

The first meal

0551 made it almost without incident

Well here I am on the plane waiting to take off shit scared for the week ahead.

Pulled up to the car park and they had no idea of my booking. That cost me 20 minutes and a slight panic about if I was going to get the flight all ok.

After 15 minutes we were on the way to the airport. Strange thing is the sat nave , waze, took me a really odd route but can’t complain it got me here.

Well the guy is on the on th tannoy telling us all to turn devices off so that’s my cue to kill this post.

Hppefully Amsterdam airport will have free wifi and I’ll post some pictures up then.

My my arm is still killing. I feel sick. I miss my cat and dogs something chronic.

Wonder if there is free tea and coffee. That’s worth it alone to pay a little more than flying Ryan air or easy jet. Just a shame it’s not a direct flight but that’s my fault for procrastinating the flight and decision making process.

Flight time is a hour. Not even in the air and I want to be home /(

The morning before

This is Not going well
Last night I only managed about three hours of uninterrupted sleep, managed to drift backoff about 45 minutes later only to be up again at 6:30 AM and on the road by seven. I did get a cheeky few hours sleep, when I say a few hours more like an hour in the morning but the rest of the day was spent panicking and worrying about going to Munich.

I need to be at Cardiff airport for 5 AM which means leaving at the latest by 2:30 AM.

My flight then departs at 6 AM where I then have a one hour 10 minutes layover in Amsterdam before arriving in Munich at 10:55 AM.

Then it’s a case of catching the train for another 35mm is and then seeing what happens.

All being said I’m really not looking forward to this.

Number one although I’m dog sitting the humans are going to be around for a few few days before I am left on my own. Animals I can cope with having to make Smalltalk not so much.

Number two I really do have to be incredibly careful with regards to what money I spend.

I mean really, really careful.

Number three. Her.

Well this was going to be Nina related but after a few charts where she comes across as being well as no one the way to say it passive-aggressive, talking down in a demeaning style it suddenly hit me. Why am I bothering to try and make an effort was someone who I think deep down just in genuinely isn’t a nice person.

She said that we will probably bump into each other on Saturday but I don’t think I helped the cause any by sending a rather shirty message to say I am going to take some advice out of your book and be slightly more aggressive in my choosing of people I call friends. In a childish way I further emphasised this point by not logging in to what SAP to check any messages for the rest of the day.

She is the least of my worries though.

Number four. What to do for the 10 days that I am going to be on my own.

Being in a foreign land and not knowing the language is a pretty daunting situation. Normally if I had the money I know that I could go to one or two drinking houses in the evening and it least I would have some company.

And that isn’t an option I am hoping that I may get some running done over the next 10 days and I am taking my Windows PC so I can do a bit of gaming.

Number five. Getting around you need a ticket for travelling on the trains that bit I get the problem is unlike or train stations here in the UK where you can slicked different languages for the menus over in Munich it is one language and labs German. If this is ever going to be a test case for making sure I always have a full battery and learning where there is free public Wi-Fi then this is going to be it.

Number six. Being homesick. Granted my house may be cold, damp but at least its familiar and I have what little creature comforts around me. There is a certain sense of comfort knowing you are at your home.

I tend to get homesick very easily thinking back on things.

Number seven. Missing my cat.

Time certainly has flown and she’s been my companion since she was given to me as a little kitten. She can be a complete pain in the backside and just recently she has really wanted a lot more love and affection but that’s understandable given just how cold it is. This one should have been at the top of the list but this list is in no particular order.

Number eight. My regular dogs.

Toffee and biscuit I have come to think of as my own dogs. Whilst I’ve been unemployed I have been taking care of them and this may say seem strange to some but I know that really dogs are dogs. They only love the person who feeds them.

That isn’t going to stop me missing them.

The positives.

I would really appreciate it if anyone out there would leave a message was some form of positivity or positive outlook on this.

There is a reason I only go away on holiday for a couple of days at a time and not because I like to get home.

As much as I really don’t like Pembrokeshire hat times I am where I live being in another country with no friends, not that I have any, makes me feel even more isolated and I don’t mind saying it a touch scared.

I’ve said this before but Germany well Munich, is very stereotypical being a city is how you would expect the people to be. In the four times I have been there all the women have been impossibly attractive with a touch of German and Swedish mixed together.

You have no idea how beautiful they are. The men are also the same tool, well dreams and again imagine going I am living in an episode of The Only Way Is Essex but only the German language.

In short I don’t fit in many places but I especially don’t fitting to an environment such as this.

You are going to find many nationalities which will equal Germany in terms of superficial nurse. I completely gets the fact that obviously a female is going to be looking for a successful mail but here you really do sense and feel it more in your face then you will emerge.

Anyways is 20 2:39 PM and I still haven’t packed my bags I need to be on the road in four hours. Will update from the airport
