Yesterday as I checked in I met Francesca. She's the front desk clerk. She was extremely nice and is very beautiful. Today I spent a lot of time in the breakfast room which has the best light for reading and tables for typing, which also happens to be the check-in room. Francesca was working again. Yesterday I had started talking to her about what I do and my travels
When I was 13 we lived in a small town in Manitoba called St-Pierre-Joly. My best friend was Tony and he lived on a dairy farm. I spent a lot of time there when I wasn't working in my Mom & Dad's grocery store. He came from a large family, mostly sisters. I had a crush on his older sister, Angela. But she wasn't my first love. That would be his younger sister, Francina. Yes! It was "Puppy Love". It was short lived. We would sneak away to the hayloft holding hands. At some point in time we kissed. Just a peck really. We were so young.
Now why would I think about someone from 30 years ago at this time? I haven't before. I've met other people with similar names to Francesca before. Francesca is probably Nick's age, 18 or 19. She's a reminder to me for some reason. Now, what is that purpose? Why do I need a reminder of my first love at this time?
Since I've written my "Right Back Where I started From
I hang out for a while and then go for a walk around town in the rain. I do more window shopping, even though the stores are open. I have very little money. I find the perfect Cuckoo Clock. It's $2,000. Guess I won't be buying that this trip. I do buy ear plugs. With 6 people in the room things are a little stuffy so I left the window open through the night. The street noise kept me awake most of last night. I figured I'm here for 4 more nights. Might as well try and get some sleep before going home. Guess I should have bought these at the beginning of the expedition. I also find a Swiss Military sweatshirt that I like but don't buy it. I only have 1 long sleeve shirt and I'm not sure about wearing it for a whole week considering the weather is quite cool for t-shirts. Though, the wool coat I bought in Luxembourg is awesome.
I have finally figured out how to get my message out. I hadn't been able to figure out a way to get the information I've been writing about in these disjointed blog entries in an easily understandable format. My "How-To make the Law Of Attraction work for you" manual is going to be an International Best Seller
Back to the hostel for a while, then the weather clear up a little. I decide to go for a hike at a park in the south of town. That done, I go rest at the hostel for a bit then walk around town in the evening. I buy the Swiss Military Sweatshirt...in yellow. I have spent the last of my money. Still walking around Man Street I get depressed (a little). I see all these couples walking around, hand-in-hand, and I see couples in restaurants laughing away and having a good time. Yes! I am lonely. Loneliness SUCKS!
WHEN DO I GET WHAT I WANT & NEED?
I get back to the hostel and go to bed. I want to get up early and take a hike. During my wanderings in town I found a path they call a Nordic Walking Trail. The part that I saw was paved and they say it's 3.5 kms long. My runners are not made for hiking. I slip on wet pavement. An easy hike is all that I could do with the "tools" that I have.
Four days to go! Still wondering what else this stop is all about.
Think It! Feel It! Live It!
