Just want to preface this by apologising for the fact that these often have a lot of typos and are not well written. They’re mostly done in a rush at the end of week when caring has ceased.
A lot of people were away these past seven days but regardless, there was much to be done. The earlier part of the week was great weather which previously used to irritate me, being cooped up in an office (a beautiful office at that but nonetheless frustrating). Now, being a student again, I can make reckless decisions like blowing off homework and cycling to Lindau, Germany with Wim and Loeki to go to the Jahrsmarkt (year market). We cycled along the lake in the sunshine and rewarded ourselves with rides and bratwurst and nuts. Being three, Wim made a new 7 year old friend who he had the pleasure of sharing the chair swing ride experience with. We then returned home and Loeki and I went on another cycling feat (accidentally through very scary woodlands at night) to meet up with Camillo to see James Bond. It was really enjoyable and Murphy’s Law, Camillo showed us a super simple way to return home after.
In between classes throughout the week, I also managed to make it to football, have afternoon tea with Maddy, swing past my internship for a coffee, meet up with Camille for breakfast bagels and markets, go with Corina to a Museum in Lauterauch, swing past Sebastianstrasse on Saturday night, have afternoon tea with Martin and have a couple of dinners with my housemates.
Additionally, I got to go to Flatz Museum in Dornbirn and interview them for an upcoming video project I’m doing for them. Wolfgang Flatz is an artist who grew up in Dornbirn but now lives in Munich. He makes crazy art mostly to do with cars and things but also hung himself out of a helicopter with a dead cow covered in blood. Yep.
Friday afternoon after a couple of meetings, I attempted to end the working week with a pretty simple hike from Dornbirn up Staufen. Ended up getting super lost but finding myself at a place that I knew, Ebnit. With light disappearing and the bus not coming for another hour, I was thankful for an elderly couple who dropped me home. Always easy to make new friends here 😀
