In Life, Music, Travel on 2011/04/29 at 9:41 pm

For some unknown reason I can’t upload the photos from my trip to Lyon so here’s a compensation post for that, I guess. Or maybe I could just TELL you guys about the trip, you know, use words instead of visuals like they did in oh I don’t know, the medieval times?

I cannot believe that I’d been hesitant to take this trip in the first place. Not because of how it would turn out, not that, but because of personal savings that were starting to run out. I had just started working again and to run off on a trip right away wasn’t exactly the most economical choice, obviously. But after hearing “You have to come here and see what I see EVERY-SINGLE-DAY” so many times by my friend living there, I ended up buying a ticket and flying all by myself for the very first time. Flying alone is very underrated I think. Or perhaps it just suits me for some reason. In any case, the only downside with travelling alone and having to wait six hours (!) for the connecting flight on what must have been one of the most disappointing airports sizewise (very let down, Düsseldorf International) is that when you get tired, sleeping is not an option. At least not if you’ve packed your whole life (more or less) in one suitcase.

I was in France for five days and this time, more than ever, I did not want to go back home. I’d even say that a depression hit me as soon as we landed back in Scandinavia. I’ve already been in Paris three times and every time had an amazing time (!!!) (I felt like the exclamation marks were rightfully needed) (And did I just use time three times? And after this making it five?) so feeling depressed when leaving wasn’t exactly a surprise to me, but this time (six..) around something had changed. One night we were out til the crack of dawn, taking the first morning metro home, and I couldn’t have been happier. Or more satisfied. That’s when I knew what I had to do in order to move on with my life, to fully appreciate the circumstances of the present. Nothing’s a hundred percent sure yet but when it is I’ll share it to everyone.

In the meanwhile, whilst not being able to post some truly gorgeous pictures from the trip, here’s some inspiration musicwise that I kept playing on repeat during my fall-asleep-now-and-you’ll-lose-everything-you-own-pep-talk at the lengthy intermediate landings.
