These two weeks has raised a few questions for me, the main question is that how do the sales persons do it? I have come to realize that the hotel life is quite boring. It may sound very exiting and all, but the truth is that it becomes boring after a while. I have completed two weeks in Copenhagen, Denmark. It was two very busy weeks. But, unfortunately I came down with a bad cold/flu on Saturday a week ago and the cold was niggling all week, I don’t know when I felt this exhausted last. My other colleague fell really ill so she had to go back to Ireland, and there I was on my own having to complete the work we were suppose to do while in Denmark.
And when Friday came it was time for me to pack all my luggage and haul myself to the train station at the airport in Copenhagen, it was Friday evening and knowing you had some four hours train journey in front of you, anyway I made it on the train. The trip between Copenhagen and Malmö in Sweden is very short, and we had a stop on the Swedish side to go through the passport check by the Swedish Police. Then finally we were on our way. Being out on this journey makes me longing for my own bed at home more and more, but only two more weeks to go now.
I arrived in Gothenburg late Friday evening, my hotel was located basically in conjunction with the train station which was nice, it was a nice hotel. But, it was quite busy since this was in the middle of where everything happens, and lots of people were staying there. On Saturday I met with my daughter, at last. Yep, she has purple hair now [quite funny though] but she’s always a lot of fun that girl.
We were having a good time, walking around in the city.
These are my fav spots in Gothenburg, and I just couldn’t leave without taking a few new snaps, the statue here is something I haven’t photographed before. This man was called Evert Taube, he was a very well known person in this area, he was what we called a trubadur, he has written and sung a lot of songs. Here is one of them: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7qANEjnOu8Y and this brings back memories of my dad, he was often singing this particular one. And here is another version where his son Sven-Bertil Taube sings the same song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SbmcS6KuJ3g So you see this spot is a bit special to me, even though it also has some painful memories, but that’s for another day.
I have now arrived in my third destination of my trip, Stockholm – what a beautiful city.
And arriving to my room seeing this, made me immediately feeling comfortable. This hotel room is more personal and it really has a nice character. And what the coming week will bring I am not exactly sure, but I might just stick around to see what happens. Being out travelling like this really makes you appreciate what you have at home.
I’ll be back next week with more updates, I’ll be writing from Oslo then, which is my last destination of this trip before I finally head back to the Green Island of home.
Have a good week!
