Oh yes, Day One. I even name days now, I just thought I should go up one step higher with my blogging abilities and disabilites.
I made it past the German speaking German people when I checked in for my flight in Stuttgart without having to speak more than two hundred German letters. It's always fun to only answer questions with 'Ja' (Yes) and 'Nein. Ich habe kein Bomb.' (No, I don't have a bomb.) It's not that I can't speak German because I can, I just don't and those two aren't spelled the same so they must not mean the same as well. Ich kan auf Deutsch sprechen und schreiben! Ich habe kein Bomb! (I can speak and write in German. I don't have a bomb!)
Chemie, the name of my travel journal, says I arrived in Katowice at 14:00.
About being hungry, I couldn't stand the hunger anymore and the ride from the Katowice airport to Krakow was taking forever and I was convinced at that moment that Katowice is not even in Poland, so I decided to.. eat. Oh yes I did. I ate. I ate the belgian waffles I brought from Belgium a week before and I was going to give them to my travel buddy Wayne who is at that moment waiting patiently in Krakow for me.
Finally. After a million years inside that hot hot hot mini-bus, I arrived in Krakow. I texted Wayne and waited for him the whole day at the bus station where he promised, or let's say swore, that he's gonna pick me up. He's a no show, what a nob. I couldn't wait any more than 10 minutes there so I made my way alone to the hostel which was kind of an effort to find because I'm a retard. I texted Wayne again and I only wish he replied. I thought I saw Wayne 2 minutes from the station but not because the guy looked like Wayne but only because he was wearing a green shirt and Wayne wears his green shirt 399 days a year. I really thought it was him then suddenly the guy looked at me so I ran.
I think Wayne said 'Oh I'm sorry!' (But I think he meant: It's so good to sleep. So what if I hadn't picked you up, I was up all night with nowhere to sleep!) And I replied with a sweet smile and some giggles and said 'Oh it's alright. You're forgiven.' (But what I really wanted to say was: You Bastard! I shall call you that name from now on. I am so glad I ate the waffles!)
Wayne had a shower and made me wait again. I am still glad about eating the damn waffles. We went out and explored whatever we can explore. We tried some weird looking cheese stuff off a stall in the city centre. It tasted weird. We walked to some random streets while having some proper blabbers about random stuff before we decided to get straight to our main interest, alcohol.
We took a table at one of the bars and chilled out. Wayne had beers and I had some Vodka. I think we moved to another bar, or we might not have. Oh, and we forgot to eat?! Good thing I had belgian waffles and Wayne only had the weird cheese. We didn't feel very hungry at all and it must've been the weird cheese. Krakow is a great place to chill and drink, especially on a nice summer day. And most people are trying to get smashed but I guess you already know that. No? Yes they do.
Since my budget is so tight I could not afford to get absolutely smashed. Not that it's a good thing to get drunk, but sometimes I just want to. I was warned about our roommates in our dorm room about a stag party.
Ending Words for Day One:
I was quite stressed for my first day I want to complain but I can't make up a reason why. And also, I was already explained to what a stag party actually is. And staff party doesn't make much sense and might not even exist but only to those who don't know stag parties.
Something to Remember:
Weird Polish cheese with the red stuff.
Eating the belgian waffles.
Finlandia Vodka, awesome. Mango flavor was really nice!
