It’s currently 2.30am and I am sitting at Victoria Coach station waiting for the bus to Heathrow. I am overly tired and kind of stresses – not the best start to this trip.
Frankly, I had one of those weeks where in my head I had everything figured out nicely
- finish editing my Netherlands pictures
- edit the video
- create a stop motion animation as an intro for my new YouTube channel
Easy is what my naive brain insistst and against better judgement, I fool myself into the believe that come Friday surely I’ll have time to relax maybe even get a few hours sleep before setting off for the airport.
Every sane person would have screamed madness but then sanity is overrated.
Harsh truth is, I was overly ambitious and didn’t get to finish any of it. Instead, I have been editing 8hrs on Friday and in between sort of throwing something (God knows what) into a bagpack every time the clip rendered. I’m the end I had 6 min to spare before I literal run for the bus.
So I am very sorry but the Netherlands stuff will go live after I get back from Poland.
What’s happening in Poland, you may ask. NO IDEA! THIS entire trip is without a plan. My camino buddy Lisa asked whether I want to come along to Poland and see Warsaw, Krakow and from there where ever the wind blows.
So I guess my mission here is to be the travel companion. If I had to set a mission then I should use this trip to improve my street photography skills and try to overcome the awkwardness of taking pictures of strangers.
I deliberately don’t want to make this more because I have a whole ‘Who do you think you are’ trip planned, which hopefully shines some light on my mystery blood. I know Poland will be a big part of this special trip but more on this another time. OK just this, I ordered an Ancestry DNA test kit and I am excited like a kid waiting for Santa.
Back to the trip at hand. Lisa and I have literally no money, so we will try to keep it as cheap as possible. Couch surfing and shout outs on travel forums on FB and if all fails hostels. I only have a flight with no return. Maybe I bus it back to London… 28hrs… Maybe not.
So this is the Poland mission. DON’T FORGET to follow me.
Signing off, take care and have a fab weekend
