It has been almost 2 months since my last Just A Chat post, so I thought it was time to do another one. Lots of things to chat about today, so let’s get right into it!
Let’s start with the two things in this title, because they kind of go hand in hand. If you’ve read my last Just A Chat post you will know that my boyfriend has been in Denmark for the last 2 months. He’s been doing an internship there on a farm, and he has been enjoying it a lot. The plan was first for him to take the train back to the Netherlands, but then my parents came with a great idea a few weeks ago. You see, my mom needs a lift to Hamburg, Germany on the 18th, because she and her boyfriend (that sounds weird, manfriend then?) are going on a vacation. He lives in Hamburg, she needs to bring a lot of stuff, she didn’t want to go by train, so she asked my dad to drive her.
And then she got this brilliant idea: why not drive up to Denmark afterwards and pick up my boyfriend? Hamburg is on the way anyways. So she asked me if I would like that, if Gideon, my boyfriend, would like that, and if my dad was up for it too. And of course we had to check if the car – it’s almost 20 years old – could handle it as well. The 3 of us said yes, of course we would like that. The car got the OK to take us there. And the plan was made. So exactly a week from now my dad and I will drive my mom to Hamburg (well, my dad will drive, I don’t have a license) probably spent a day there, then we will drive to Denmark, find a camping near where my boyfriend’s been living these past few months, pick him up, and drive back, taking a few days to stop and discover a bit of Denmark. A nice little last minute (kinda) road trip.
I am so excited to go on this trip. First of all, of course, I cannot wait to see Gideon again – 2 months is a long time! – but I am also excited to discover these new places that I’ve never been before. I’ve heard that Hamburg is a very nice city (my friend went there a few weeks ago and she liked it) and Denmark, in the pictures, looks stunning! It is my goal to convince my dad and boyfriend to drive to the sea, because I think it’ll be a really pretty coastline. Lastly, I am excited to go because I get to spend a few days with my dad. We went on a few road trips in France when I was younger, and it was always so much fun just seeing the country, stopping whenever we decided we needed to find a place for the night, spending the evening reading our books or walking around the towns we were staying at. Of course, now we have a pretty clear plan for where we need to go and when we need to be there, and we won’t have that many days to explore, but still, it’ll be so much fun.
So yea, that’s a bit about this extra vacation I suddenly have. And after that I won’t be living alone anymore. I am so excited to have my boyfriend back, but I have actually been enjoying living on my own as well. It’s boring sometimes, especially because I don’t really have any friends that live close by, but it has also been very nice to only have myself to worry about and to take care of. Cooking for one person went very well, and it was nice to really make whatever I wanted to eat and what I like, and not have to worry about if my boyfriend likes it too.
But still, very happy to have my boyfriend back home soon. And then about a week after he’s back I will start my internship. What?! Yes! I will start studying for being a secretary in September, and in August I will have the first day of my internship for that as well. It is so scary to think that I will soon actually go back to school and have a sort of job, but I am also very excited to get back into a more normal life as well. To have something to do again, not have to think about what I want to do every day. I will definitely have to get used to it, but I’m sure I will manage. I am interested to see how I will combine this blogging thing with work and school, since now I’ve had all the time in the world to spend on blogging, writing, reading keeping the house clean, ect. Now I will actually have to kind of plan my time a bit more wisely. But again, I’m sure I will find a way.
Right, another reason why I’m happy to have the bf back is because then I finally have someone to take pictures for me again! I have been using this bluetooth remote for my phone the past few months to take all my pics, and it did the job, but it is just waaaaay easier to have an actually person behind the camera.
Wow, okay, that was a lot of talking. I think I said everything I wanted to say. You’re up to date on all the things happening for me in the near future.
Of course I will do a What I Pack for Denmark, and I might do a little travel photo diary as well. And lots of pictures on my Instagram, as always.
Thanks for stopping by!
