It seems that London is not happy about me leaving. It swallowed my Oyster Card on my way to Victoria Coach Station. So if you find one on a Central line train or a Victoria line train with about 8 pounds of credit – your next ride is on me.
And how come the weather today is gorgeous? I’m not a fan of bus photos, but you should see what I’m talking about.
And in about 7 hours I’ll be in Poland with all its snow and temperature close to 10 degrees Celsius below zero…
I have a shitload of work to do and have been drinking all kinds of caffeinated drinks for days so I probably shouldn’t be surprised that this combination of work overload and sleep deprivation finally managed to awake my wanderlust. Which means I’m even more miserable because I don’t have time to leave my apartment for more than an hour a day. And that’s just not enough!
Today I finally caved and went for a longer walk (which reminded me so much of my midnight walks in London and Tokyo!). It was either that or going to sleep and I have too much work to even think about sleeping for next 36 hours.
I was rather pleasantly surprised by the weather: there was no icing and temperature was around ten degrees Celsius which is quite hot for December in Poland. I recorded the video below just four days ago:
▲ This is how Polish usually winter looks like. ▼ I’m not gonna complain about it yet, but I hope in about a week or so there’ll be more snow. At least that much:
BTW, anyone recognizes what I was listening to while recording the snow? How about a small hint? 😉
So I was going through some photos and I found this (taken in Kyoto):
I bet this is where Moriarty spends his vacation (does he even have vacation?).
But seriously, I would love to know more about the reason behind this name. It seems like something was lost in translation, but I might be wrong. I’ve never made an overnight stop in Kyoto, so maybe someday I’ll stay there and ask 🙂
Also: Japan>Poland jet lag isn’t that draining. Japan>Poland weather change is a bit more challenging, but it’s all right. I’m stayin’ alive 😉
