* Incredibly, I didn’t have already a pair of Ray Ban Aviator. I thought it was time to fix that, so I’m leaving with another new pair of sunglasses.
** In the background the buildings where I live, not that far from the city center.
Alright, I’m leaving again. Some of you guys might know I’ve already started my travel season just 20 days ago, like I said in one of my previous posts. It was fun and exciting like every time I have the opportunity to travel. But this time will be different. Better I hope, but I’m very confident. Because I came back from my last trip to the East Midlands with a new consciousness. In fact I feel different, and wiser in some way. That’s what travels are supposed to do, isn’it? They’re supposed to teach you something new every time. And now I know better. I’m not the same person I was before that travel, because I came back with a certainty I didn’t have before. A certainty that can change everything. Selfie sticks suck.
I mean, why do I have to look like a reporter in front of a camera in every shot I take with a selfie stick, with just a different background?! What if I want a picture of my entire self?! I’m done with asking other tourists to take pictures of me because I always find something I don’t like about them. Last time in Nottingham I also tried to find places where to put the stick on and methods to get it steady, while I was posing farther, trying to get a larger picture, but that fucking stick kept on swinging, making it hard. So screw the selfie stick.
As soon as I got back home, I ordered a brand new tripod with a support for my smartphone. Bluetooth controlled. That’s pretty cool. Now I can place the tripod wherever I want, go get a pose in front of whatever background I choose, and just press the button on my remote. Cool. I used to have a girlfriend who did the same job. I’ll admit she was prettier, but now that I’m alone, I can’t go to new places and get back without shots to show I’ve actually been there, can I?! Then hopefully, I’ll have some new pictures and stories to post about when I’ll be back.
For those of you who are interested, I planned a five days getaway between Hamburg and Copenhagen. I’m gonna fly from Rome to Hamburg with an Easyjet flight (75 euros one way), spend two nights in a hostel in the city center, then I’m gonna catch a train to Copenhagen (it’s a four hours ride at 49 euros because I booked in advance, otherwise it would have been 80 euros or something). Then, after other two nights in another hostel in the Copenhagen city center, I’m gonna fly back home (Alitalia flight at 54 euros one way).
All included it’ll cost me 225 euros. I think it isn’t bad for a 5 days vacation that will allow me to visit two beautiful cities I’ve never been before. I guess I’ll have to spend a bit more than the usual for the food, because I won’t miss a good juicy Danish steak and the fresh fish in the Copenhagen open markets. Because at the end of the day, trying the local food is one of the main reasons why I love traveling.
In conclusion, I took this shot just a few hours ago while I was trying to find a new pair of shoes in the city center. It shows you the reason why I’m not particularly sad when I end a trip and get back home. If it happens I miss the vibe of a big major metropolis, I just have to go out. I know, I’m lucky.
Since it’s gonna be a five days vacation, I’m not sure I’ll be able to post regularly this week, but I’ll try. On the other hand you can be damn sure I’ll update my FB page, my FB personal account and my Instagram account, because I’m not gonna lie here, I love posting pictures when I’m around.
All that said, feel free to comment my updates and follow me during the trip. I’ll see you when I get back, hopefully with a new good story to tell.
